And Google Being Google

From a recent email I received:
Support for the desktop uploader ends soon
The desktop uploader, Google Photos Backup, will no longer be supported after May 12, 2018. After this date, you won't be able to back up photos & videos using the uploader.
To continue backing up photos from your computer, we recommend that you use the new Backup and Sync application from Google – it's a faster and easier way to back up.
Complete crap, glad I switched to Flickr Pro.
