In the Google Photos app there is a “Star” icon that you can press on a photo to mark a photo as a favorite. Further, inside the app all of the photos that have been “Starred” appear in an Album called “Favorites”.
However! This isn’t a normal album via the Google Photos API. Instead, it is a special “Feature” in the API.
I think that rclone should offer a new “feature/favorites” folder that will enable folks to backup this album as well.
- Mirror the Google Photos app and just call this a album or in rclone call it “album/favorites”. I don’t think this is a good plan because then we have to special case something if a user creates an album called favorites.
