I have downloaded the “Exif Tag Editor” from the Google Play store and through this app, one can view and edit the exif file of a photo prior to uploading it to Google Photos. If I download any photo from Google Photos that app can’t open the exif info.
In Google Photo’s clicking on the “info” icon just shows very minimal information. I would like to see the rest of the info that is in the “EXIF” if possible and edit it.
Is there any other way of viewing these files that you might know of?
My reasoning for this is I would like to place the names of people in the photo so others that I send it to can view the names.
Thank you in advance.
I usually just use Windows, check out this video to see what I’m talking about 607.GP-Change Photo Dates
Then let me know what Exif fields you need that aren’t there.

PERFECT! You once again solved my dilemma. I use the Chromebook every day as my go-to computer. Never gave it a thought that my Windows machine would have that capability.
You would assume how well Google has perfected Google Photos, they would put that same function in their web version of Google Photos under the “info” tab. That one feature sure would help many in my opinion.
So it looks like my work is now cut out for me to update my photos that have wrong dates. Plus, I noticed an area for comments where I could put info on who is who in the photos.
Thank you, Chris.
