I used to be able to see how many photos and albums i had on Google photos.  I am in the process of cleaning up the files and would like to know but no longer can i tell how much space/photos i have.  How can i find out?

Google isn’t great at counting! The official place to see numbers is at The problem is that they count once for each time a photo appears in an album. So, it tells me that I have 224,000 + photos and videos in Google Photos. I know that I have a little less that 90,000. But every photo is in at least one album, so it counts twice. 

The way I get an accurate number is shown in this video:517.GP-Trick to get Photo Count in Google Photos

Let me know if that works for you.
