I would like to search Google photos images by their filename but I have a problem when two photos were taken at the same time and therefore their filenames and pretty similar - e.g., 20190430_092841.jpg and 20190430_092841(0).jpg. When searching the one with parenthesis, it works well but searching the other one displays both.

I have already tried both single and double quotation marks (both seems to do a different thing), plus and minus signs and many other symbols such as exclamation and quotation marks or backslashes with no luck.

Do you know if there is a way to force exact filename search which doesn't ignore (0) at the end of the filename? Or do you know about some online documentation about photos search?

In the end, I would like to search for multiple images at the same time with the use of OR keyword (which seems to work), but first I need to solve this.

  • try: "20190430_092841" – user0 May 1 at 22:19
  • Sadly still doesn't work - no matter whether I add the .jpg extension or not... – Kulikjak May 2 at 12:18
