A month or so ago I could see my all my daughters pictures in Google Photos, I no longer can. Google must have changed how that is done and I can’t figure it out!  Please help.  

Thanks,

Ginny

Can you tell me exactly how you used to view your daughter’s photos? I see you put this message in the Google + (Plus) category? Did you go to Plus.google.com to view them?

Because, unless you set up a shared library with your daughter, or you log in with her user name and password, you can’t see her photos using Google Photos. You can only see the ones she has shared with you.

If it is in Google + (Plus) then, yes that whole system is going away.

I don’t even know what Google + is.  I just wanted to ask a question and of course thought it was going into Google Photos.  I had sent you a message several months ago talking about Google Photos.

 

I actually found the answer.  They just changed the look of the icon to click on and to  a different place on the page.  I can see all her pictures just like before.

 

Thanks

Ok, glad you figured it out. I am curious though, what page are you going to for her photos. And, what does the new icon look like? There is only one icon for Google Photos – it looks like the image below. If the icon doesn’t look like that, then it’s not Google Photos.
