2/12/22012 – Using Window 10 – Google photos

I created an new Album named “Ships”

Opened the new album and searched for “Ships” which I had 1300 pictures.

I want to select all 1300 and have these in the new Album.

I could not figure how to select “all”because choice did not work.

I then selected all manually but could not figure how to get them it the “Ships” album – nothing I choose worked.

Can you provide step b step instructions on how to search for a topic and place in a album as above?

Tks, Chuck Parker

Hey Chuck – sorry for my delay.

I made a little video for you about adding photos to an album. I hope it helps.

As for “Select All” – what you do is select the first photo then scroll down and shift-click the last one. With 1300 photos, you will need to do it in chunks though. Here’s another video to watch – it’s about deleting all your photos – DON’T Do that!! But, the video also shows how to select large numbers of photos at once.
