The only way I found, which is super stupid and as anti-user-friendly as they go (I guess that's the new Google), is to download the files (it will take a while, will create a big ZIP file and might crash the Google Drive app) unzip them, because while Google Drive gives you zip, Google Photos doesn't allow ZIP (output of an app is not accepted in basically ...

While you still can't rotate multiple pictures at once, at least now there is a keyboard shortcut to rotate a picture: Shift-R. So click a picture you want to rotate, hit Shift-R (once, or 3 times, depending on the rotation you need), then either use the arrows to go to the next picture, or back to go back to the list.

I'm afraid you can't tell Google who the person is, only who the person is not. Open up the "People" album where there's a mistake Select all of the photos that are mismarked as being for the current person In the "More options" menu (three vertical dots) choose "Remove results" If it all works well, you'll find those photos grouped together under a ...

Probably recently added by Google, it's now possible to edit the date of photos on photos.google.com itself. Simply open a photo, click on the 'i' information icon and there it is; an editable date.

Google Photos is one of the products included in Google Takeout. You can even select exactly which albums you want to download. It will take some time, but once the archive is ready you'll receive an email with a (private) link for you to download your data. Albums will get their own folders within the archive. Photos not in albums appear to get put in ...

Create a text file with the name .nomedia into the folder you want to hide from the Photos app. The file itself can remain empty. You can use a File Manager app to create files.

There is no way in 2017 to do this. Picasa no longer exists. It surprises me that no 3rd party app has appeared to manage Google Photo upload with combined album creation, I assume Google does not provide a public API for this. Many people have asked for way to convert desktop folders to Google Photos Albums, for some reason Google has chosen not to do ...

At this time Google actively changes its image service behavior. Now, there is not any algorithms how to receive direct and permanent links to your shared photos. The URLs are received by the right-button click, like https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/(LONGLONGCODE...)=w800-h600-no, are temporary and live one-two days and then will be closed. You can try new ...

So, this is a bit of an old question.. but it still doesn't seem to be solved. Here are some additional people complaining about the issue... How to delete all photos which are not in an album? Not being able to search for photos not in albums is painful - alternative? I have many thousands of photos (~10k) in Google Photos and I wasn't about to manually ...

Google will be resampling the image using a higher level of compression (which your stats don't show). The quality of the image is likely to decrease slightly, although whether this is noticeable to most people is another matter. The "quality" (a scale of 1 lowest to 100 highest) factor is part of the JPEG algorithm. Reducing the "quality" increases the ...

The easiest way to download all albums would be to use the Google Takeout service. It can be used to export data from many Google services, including Photos. If you click the dropdown next to Google Photos in Takeout it lets you select which albums you would like to download.

If you upload using the Google Photos uploader, albums won't get automatically created, but the folder name will get saved with the photo metadata. Try this: after uploading your photos from multiple folders, do a search to one of the folder names ("solar eclipse" in your case). This will list all your photos uploaded from that folder. Now - for the moment -...

This is now an option in the settings. https://photos.google.com/settings → Recover storage.

I had the same problem. Here's how I fixed it. On a PC, go to: https://photos.google.com/people Click on the 3-bubble menu top right Click on "Show & hide people" Then click on the faces you want to hide.

It's simple: open photos.google.com open album open any image (black layout will appear) right click mouse button on image copy image URL URL should look like https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/(LONGLONGCODE...)=w800-h600-no Or, right click mouse button - open image with new tab. Then copy image URL from your browser address bar.

Finally there is a solution!! (as of January 2016). You can import all of your folders (folder = album) into Picasa and then upload them to Google Photos. You have to choose Upload original size, otherwise your photos are downgraded to 2048x2048. Of course Google is going to count this against your quota. However, there is a new option in Google Photo, in ...

As mentioned, as of July 1, 2015, google photo does not allow you to change the properties of you photo except for the description. I know the original Questioner does not want to download or re upload, but I have found this to be the easiest and fastest way to work around this issue using Picasa 3 and even better you can do several photos at once. (P.S. You ...

I managed it by navigating (on Picasa photo view) Actions > Edit on Google+ > Photo details and click on the date link: Richard Williams points out in his comment below: The "Edit in Google+" doesn't appear when viewing a video - however if you just open the video in Google+ you can still change the date as in this answer.

Finally the solution is here. Google added a tiny "Recover Storage" button on the web interface (photos.google.com -> Settings -> Recover Storage). Use Picasa desktop client to upload all your folders in original quality This will create Collections corresponding to folders on your computer. This will also count towards your storage quota. Compress all ...

To see the Creations you've saved... Go to the "Search" page Scroll to the bottom and click "Creations" To see the Creations the Assistant has suggested, but which you didn't save... Go to the "Assistant" page Scroll to the bottom and click "VIEW UNSAVED CREATIONS" (I don't know if this latter holds on to Creations that you've explicitly dismissed/...

If you use Google Drive, you can connect the two so that everything in Google Photos is also copied to Google Drive. If you use Google Drive sync, then they'll all be on your hard drive. In Google Drive settings, check the box next to "Create a Google Photos folder" labeled Automatically put your Google Photos into a folder in My Drive" Now you'll have a ...

In Settings, you can set whether web uploads are "High Quality" or "Original".

The pop effect is simply an increase in local contrast.
