    I'm trying to save photos from Google Drive to Google Photos, but when I click download, or save, or share, Google Photos isn't in the list of options. I can't copy or right click on the photo either. Isn't the Google Photos app redundant if it's the same as Gallery or Drive, only without any functionality?

    Google Photos saves to your Google Drive account. It works as your automatic backup and it displays your photos from all of your sources that you have connected as well as all of your sources on the device. The Gallery app is probably more redundant than either of the other two just because it doesn't draw from as many places. Meanwhile if you've reached your storage limit Google is probably hitting you up to buy more space. It won't allow you to save anymore data but should still allow you access to the data you've saved. If you don't believe that your account has reached its limit give us some more information and we'll try to help you piece this together.

    Touching and holding is the equivalent of the right click on android.

    Welcome to Android Central! To have your photos in Drive show up in Photos, open your Photos app, tap Menu>Settings, then turn on the Google Drive sync toggle. But be aware that Google recently announced that they might remove this feature: https://9to5google.com/2019/05/14/go...y-apk-insight/
