Am I correct in understanding that Google Photos is unable to let users 1) select a bunch of pictures (through the check mark + CTRL key), and move them all in one go?

It looks like you can only move one picture at a time. Besides, Google Photos is pretty slow.

I tried Picasa, but for some reason, the sort order doesn't match what I see in Google Photos.

    What do you mean by "moving pictures within the same album"? – user79865 Jul 25 '16 at 20:21

To select multiple photos, click the arrow icons that are over each photo that you want to select so that they turn blue.

Next click '⋮' in the right hand upper corner then click 'add to' and select the album you want to copy them to. I don't see a move option personally, but you can delete them from the previous album.

Or failing that, try holding down shift then clicking each photo that you want to select.

  • Thanks but I need to move pictures within the same album. It looks like Google Photos can't do that :-/ – user2412 Apr 25 '16 at 15:33

    Google Drive can. and the pictures will already be in google drive by default. There is a google drive app or drive.google.com – A_User Apr 25 '16 at 15:50
  • Thanks. I installed Google Drive for PC, but it doesn't show folders, just pictures. It's too complicated, I give up. – user2412 Apr 25 '16 at 18:17

    @user2412: That's important information that should be in your question. – ale Apr 26 '16 at 17:26
