Google Photos is one of the options available for storing photos in the cloud. It is with us since may, 2015 and it has become one of the most popular services of Mountain View. The secret of its success, in addition to the total integration into Android, is that offers unlimited storage of lifelong, but it also has faults and in Google just solve one of the most cumbersome: modify the date and time of multiple images at the same time.
Google Photos saves the images in chronological order, but sometimes the photos we got may have been taken with a camera independent who had well adjusted date. The result is a timeline of the most chaotic, with photos made a few weeks ago that are tagged as if we had done them ten years ago, but after the last update It is possible to organize them quickly.
Until now, if you wanted to modify various images appearing in a wrong date in our Google Photos, another that go one by one was not us. It is a quite common problem if you are using the service to upload photos made with independent Chambers, i.e., not only that you do with your mobile. Most compact cameras require that adjust the date and time manually, but it is a detail that we cannot be overlooked easily.
We can select a trip photos and move them to the correct period of only once, making the Organization of your photos much more quickly and easily.
After the latest update, Google Photos already allows you to adjust the date and time of batches of images. We can select a trip photos and move them to the correct period of only once, making the Organization of your photos much more quickly and easily. In addition, offers the possibility of choosing the same date and time for all or Choose the start of the interval to continue respecting the temporal difference between images.
For now, the change dates in Google Photos It is only available in the desktop version Google Photos, the mobile version does not give us this option.
It organizes the date and time of your photos on Google Photos
As we said before, Google does not give us this possibility in the app for smartphones and tablets, so it is necessary to access from your computer to change the date of the photos.
First go to the website of Google Photos e please login with your Google account to access your photo album.
Once you have entered your account, all the images you have stored on the service, organized in chronological order will appear. To navigate dates quickly, get just scroll down and you will be shown a small balloon showing the date of the images, thus it is easier locate those photos that appear on erroneous dates.
The next step is Select photos you want to move to a different date. When you have them all, click on the three dots vertically button that appears in the upper right corner of the screen.
Before the upgrade, all we could do was to download the images, but now opens a pop-up menu that appears to us the option “Edit the date and time”.
As we said, Google Photos offers us two options to modify images. With the first option we can modify them in such a way that it continues respecting the difference time between images, while the second will apply the same parameters to all photos.
If you select the first option, you can have that define the beginning of the range, i.e., the date and time at which the first photo was taken. Google Photos will recognize the difference between the rest of selected images and change them all, but will keep the difference of time between photos, just took them at the time.
In my case, pictures from a trip I took in June 2015 were archived in 2011 by have not properly configured the date on the camera, so this option is which best fits the problem.
If instead you prefer to add the same information to a group of images, you will only have to choose the day and time you want and click Save. Google Photos will modify your dates and your timeline will be more organized.
