Photo auto-import/upload straight to cloud?

Greetings Chromies,

Advice sought please.  Is there any Chrome app or extension which runs on ChromeOS and auto-imports/uploads photos straight from USB-camera or SD Card to the cloud?

Background: Got a senior relative a Chromebook about 18 months ago and she’s been loving it… until recently.  What changed?  Not being able to auto-upload photos to Photos, and instead having them upload to Drive.  When photos used to import straight from USB camera/SD Card, things were so straightforward.

The issue here is that this change is not understood.  How do you explain “well, Google used to provide this on your Chromebook, but then decided to remove that feature and there’s nothing you can do about it, despite paying good money”…?

Thanks.
