Having installed and used the Google photos app on my iphone to download all optimised photos from icloud onto the phone then upto google photos, and then deleted those photos from icloud to recover space, how can I now download the entire google photos and videos uploaded to google photos, back onto my computer in one big data dump?  

I cannot seem to find this option anywhere and having also installed google photos uploaded on my computer, it only offers to backup photos and not download them.

I see there is a feature which can be ticked/checked in google drive settings, which says "Automatically put google photos into a folder in MyDrive".  Only problem with that is that it creates sub folders with the year names.  Is this the only way to download them?  its hardly a sync'ing way of doing it unless you install google drive app on the PC
