Any way to automate Google Photos?

  1. Hi all. After flirting for years with Linux, the Gallium OS distro optimized for Chromebooks has sucked me in. It's great.

    One thing I'm missing, however, is that I'm a big Google Photos (GP) user. On Windows machines, the GP app autodetects and autouploads new photos. On Chromebooks, the OS detects when you plug in a camera and also autouploads.

    Now, I'm stuck with this with Linux. After hours of trying, I couldn't get Picasa to work with Wine, so I'm trying Shotwell. It's a decent enough photo organizer, but the online GP website can only upload one directory at a time, making that a real chore with multiple dates of photos downloaded.

    Is there any sync app or program that can upload to GP? Thanks all.
