Hi, I’m just back from a two week road trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone, so you can imagine the amount of photos I’m trying to edit.

I started using Snapseed to add text to certain photos, usually the first in a series of the same area, but when it returns to GP, it’s not in the same place anymore.  It’s usually within the same day, but no longer in order.  I’ve searched GP Help and your book, but can’t find this addressed anywhere.

And, I sometimes think GP moves them out of order, too, even when I haven’t used Snapseed. 

The photos were taken on my Samsung S7, and I’m doing the editing on my Samsung Galaxy 7 tablet.

Thanks,

Pam Abbey

Oooh – I wanna see some pictures! Grand Tetons are my favorite mountains.

In your Photos library, pictures are strictly in order by date/time. So, my first thought is that the Snapseed copy changes the date/time to when Snapseed created it. But, I just tried it and no – snapseed did not change the date. I did notice the photo showed up briefly in a wrong position before it fell into place. 

Check the date/time of the original and the snapseed copy and let me know if they’re different. You can edit that date using a computer. View the picture, click the i for information and you should see a pencil icon next to the date/time, click that and you can edit it.

Let me know

Well, aren’t you a genius!!!  Snapseed is changing the time!   The date doesn’t change, but it moves it an hour later.  Not a big deal if you’re taking two pictures a day, but it is when a lot of photos are taken and the order is kind of important.  Thanks.  Now I can deal with it.

Just figured it out……I was taking the photos Mountain Time, and I’m editing in Pacific Time.

Technology – can’t live with it, can’t live without it.

Actually, that doesn’t make total sense, either.   If that were happening it would be changing it to the hour and date I’m editing, not just moving the original time by an hour.

A lot of things don’t make sense! 🙂 

But .. if it works? 

Have you noticed that you can change the time zone for your photos by clicking on the date?

Here’s an article … Changing the date on photos.
