Google isn’t great at counting! The official place to see numbers is at https://myaccount.google.com/dashboard. 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.
