Recently I discovered Google Photos. While it has organized many of my photos I find many still remain in separate folders. Not sure what to do to get all in one place.

Any thoughts?

Bill, I need some more information here.

  1. How are you viewing your Google Photos? 
    I recommend using a computer, browsing to https://photos.google.com/ and logging in with your Google Account.  If you view the Photos there, you won’t see any folders, it is just one stream of photos in order by date taken with the most current on top
  2. You say GP has “organized most of your photos” – what exactly are you seeing?

See if these videos help:

I just got your book and think it will answer my question. I realize I had an old unused Gmail account which may have some of the photos.

Great! Did you get the book from this site? or from Amazon? The eBook here is more up to date. It’s a benefit of membership, here’s the link to all the member eBooks.
