Download the photos from Google and place them in the Dropbox folder on your computer, allowing them to sync to your account. Or, user a third-party service such as mover.io to transfer your files between services.


... and to have new pictures taken with my Samsung 9+ phone to automatically upload to Dropbox.

Install the Dropbox app on your mobile device and enable the Camera Uploads feature.

Hi Norm!

I was able to find this help article for Google Photos regarding downloading all photos from their service to your computer. While I don't use Google Photos myself, maybe you would find it helpful? 

Download photos or videos to your device

You can copy your photos and videos back to your device.

Download all photos or videos
  1. On your computer, go to drive.google.com.
  2. Click Settings and then Create a Google Photos folder.
  3. In My Drive, find and open the Google Photos folder.
  4. Select the folder you want to download.
  5. Click More and then Select All and then Download.
