Manually Edit Labels

Google is usually quite accurate with recognizing faces. However, if in case it mislabels people:

  • Open the Photo with the wrong labels.
  • Tap the three-dot menu at the top or swipe up from the bottom.
  • In the menu bar, you’ll see the faces of people in the photo.
  • Click the Edit (pen) icon next to them.
  • You can now remove and change the labels.

Access Photos in Google Assistant

If you use Google Photos for backups, you can ask Google Assistant to see your photos. For example, I can say “Hey Google, show my photos” to see all the photos, or “Hey Google, show <name> photos from my photos” to see someone else’s. Remember to include “my photos”; otherwise, it’ll show photos from the web results.

Create Collages and Animations

Usually, Google Photos automatically creates cool collages and animations from your photos. But if you want, you can also create them manually from the Photos app, as follows:

  • Open the Google Photos app and head to the Search tab.
  • Here, scroll down to Creations.
  • To create a collage, click on Collages > Create Collage and select your photos. To create an animation, click on Animations > Create Animation, select photos, and videos and it’ll automatically create one for you.

Make a Slideshow Movie from Templates

Google Photos uses machine learning to automatically create movies for you based on your recent trips or occasions. Thankfully, you can now create these movies on demand via the app or web.

  • Open the Google Photos app on your phone.
  • Head to the Search tab and scroll down to the bottom.
  • Click on Movies under Creations.
  • Tap Create movie.
  • Select between the preset themes for it to automatically create movies for you.
  • You can also create your own by tapping New film and manually selecting photos and videos. For preset themes, select the people or animals who should star in them. Google will automatically try to find the best images and videos, compile them with appropriate music and provide you with the full video within a few minutes.

Scan Images Using Lens, Copy Text from Photos

Google Photos now integrates the Lens feature. You can use it to scan your images and find visually similar results from across the web or copy and translate text from images. To use the Lens feature, open any photo in Google Photos. Then, tap the Lens icon at the bottom and wait for it to scan the image. If you can’t find the option, update the Photos app to the latest version from Play Store or App Store.

Add Background Blur to Portraits

Google Photos intelligently detects portraits and gives you the option to add background blur to them. However, the option is currently available only for Google One members. Below is how to use it.

  • Open the portrait photo in Google Photos.
  • Click on Edit at the bottom.
  • Scroll the toolbar and select Tools.
  • Click on Blur and use the slider to adjust the intensity of the background blur.

Move Photos to Archive

You may have hundreds or even thousands of photos on your phone. Some of these photos may include screenshots, street signs, receipts, notebook pages, restaurant menus, billboards, etc., cluttering up your gallery. If you don’t want to see these photos and cannot delete them either, the best option would be to archive them in Photos. All you need to do is select the images, tap the three-dot menu and click on Archive. They’ll be moved to the Archives folder, where you can access these images in the future. Plus, Google regularly reviews your photos and sends suggestions to archive unnecessary photos if you want to.
