I see some of my photos with a little icon in the lower left corner.  (Looks like stacked lines.)  I tried clicking on it but nothing happens.  When I select just that photo, it disappears.  What is it?  Sample attached.

Hey Sue,

Yes, that is a relatively new badge – it appears on photos that have descriptions included. I like it. I only write descriptions on “keeper” photos, so I can find them easily from the grid because of that 3-line icon.

That corner is also used for the favorite star icon and that takes precedence over the description icon.
