In reviewing travel photos in GPhotos albums, I would like to alter the perspective in several of the photos, then put them back in the same place in the album as the original. How does one do this?

Let me see if I understand. You want to:

  1. use a photo from an album,
  2. edit it in Snapseed,
  3. Save the edits,
  4. replace the old photo with the new one

If you’re working with recent photos taken with the phone, the process is not too bad. If they are back a ways in your timeline, the process is a lot more complex than it should be. But it certainly can be done – you’ll just need a little patience. Also, it’s a bit easier on Android than it is on iOS. Let me know which phone you have and I’ll give you more details.

I use an iPad. Instructions would be great! Thank you for the speedy reply.

Jonathon,

Since you are using an iPad, I will assume that you did not take the photos with the iPad, so they are not ON the device.

  • Open Google Photos and open the album
  • Open the photo you want to work with, swipe up and Open in snapseed (make a note of the date of the photo)
  • Make your edits in Snapseed – Perspective, etc.
  • Tap Export and then Save 
  • Back to Google Photos grid and find the new photo
    • It should be right next to the original – by date
    • If it’s too hard to find that way, you can use Search, Recently Added – to put it at the top of the grid
  • Open the new photo, click +, Album, find the right album to put it in
  • Now view the album and remove the old photo – open it, tap the 3-dot menu and Remove from Album

Repeat for all the photos. 

One variation might make it easier if you have a lot of them to edit: Do all the editing and saving, then use Search, Recently added to put them all at the top of the grid so you can select them all and add to album at once.

Let me know if that helps.
