@Ko_kochvz Per a conversation on the Google help site:

Open Google Photos and click on the icon in upper right. and see your email tap the down arrow: You should see any other email addresses you have available, select the one you want.

Next tap the 3 bar menu: Settings: Backup & sync: and turn it off. Turn it back on again and it should immediately use the account you just made active.

@Ko_kochvz Your phone will only use one account for automatic backups. 

Open Google Photos and click on the icon in upper right. You will see the email listed at the top that Google Photos is using for backup.

Dang it , okay that's what I thought! So do you know how I can change the default back up? I thought I had changed it but this morning I woke up to my new email being maxed out too because it synced with the old one 🥺
