Hello again,

 I have another ‘glitch’ going on.

 When I mail or text from Google Photos, it always sends two copies in the same app.  

One drive always sends just a link so that’s ok.  I could send a link with GPhotos also, but in most cases, I much prefer sending a photo.

  Annoying, but workable. Any advice?

hmmm – not sure what is going on. I have not seen duplicates in sharing. Can you tell me your exact procedure?

I’m assuming:

  1. open up Google photos and select picture(s) to send
  2. tap the share button 
  3. Choose your recipient from the list
        Choose your texting app or email app, then choose recipient
  4. Tap send

Here are 2 videos to watch – let me know if they help

Thanks Mrs. Geek,


 I was using the 1st method you suggested.

Today it is working right and only sending 1 picture at a time both in email and in a text.


I guess I need to learn patience.  All these challenges seem to rectify themselves in a day or two.

Today I am having trouble moving a group of photos from one album to another.  I can move the singles just fine, but I can’t figure out how to move five or a dozen for example.  I’ll just wait and see if this one clears up also.  I can’t find any info this.

clears up also.

Thank you for all your help!
