We had our car rear ended, and I have been taking pictures of the repair progress. Can I put the date I take the picture on the picture?

Second question: When I go to Google Photos Albums, I get two albums the same. Can I delete one without deleting both?

 

Thank you

Richard,

Every photo includes info about the date it was taken. On a computer, using Google photos, open the photo then click the i for info to see the date, on mobile devices swipe up on the photo to reveal the info. 

If what you want is for the date to appear right on the photo, you need to use some other app. I use snapseed. See this article https://learngooglephotos.blog…..hotos.html

As for two albums … Yes you can delete one without deleting the other. However, I have not seen two albums named exactly the same, so would be cautious. How about renaming one, then it is clear they are distinct and you can delete one. Good?
