I know that going to info enables me to put a description of my photo, but sometimes It doesnt enable me to do it, is there a reason for this please?

Also am I able to delete the photos from my google drive, perhaps there is a setting to do this, is it detrimental if I do. I cant see the purpose of clogging up my drive with them.

Thank you so much for being there to help

RE: not being able to add a description to a Google Photos – when that happens to me, it’s because the photo has not yet been uploaded. You see, those descripions are actually just entries into the online database of your photos. so, they can’t be entered until the photo is uploaded.

Does that match your experience?

Yes oh yes, that must have been the problem, have just been to check, and there is the description field maybe sometimes photos take a little while to upload. In the meantime I have been using snap seed, for text, but some cases I would prefer not, Thank you
