I seem to have the "Google 1938" extension. "Germany" brings up photos of Austria.

I'm just amazed at the depth of words that are indexed. This morning I've tried successfully with "yeast", "shelter", "youth", "grain", "fold".

Would be nice to be able to see the list of words that are indexed against an image.

The map view (places ->all) is good on my phone, but I can't find it on the laptop?




But with all the location info, it stubbornly refuses to find or recognise my Lanzarote pics from Feb this year.

And yes - can't see anything or anyway to find the key words / tags - or, given it's an in progress AI development (I think) what our interactions may have to do with it.

Yes, think that's app only.

Just checked my google dashbooard - it's a good job I can search the photos for faces, words, objects, dates etc as I've got 84,000 of them archived on google photos!

At the moment I'm just uploading about 100Gb (yes) of camcorder footage from the early 2000s which I'm archiving onto Google Photos for free as I'm letting them compress it. No noticeable loss of image quality, and I can now spend hours smiling at the vids of my boys as little kids. The computer has spent the last 4 days solid doing the upload, it's still got a few more days to go yet...

Got something to say?

Might be just a "me" thing, but I've got all (and I mean all!) my photos backed up for free wit...
