    Bought a Droid Turbo yesterday. My memory card was moved from my Samsung Galaxy 5S. The photos are now in the Gallery, but there is no rhyme or reason to the order of them and I can't find a way to organize them on that App. So, I'd like to move all of them to the Google Gallery app that's available, just don't know how do that.

    Try Photos app - Settings - Backup and Sync - long press and turn on and chose the backup options there.
    Maybe make sure Google Photos Backup is enabled in Accounts - Google.
    In the Gallery app, if you use the floating green thingummybob with staggered lines, you can sort by time or group by event.

    Gallery (the Android standard photo viewer app) and Google Photos (its replacement) are two different ways of viewing the same photos.

    If you make subfolders, you can put the photos in them so you have "2015 Vacation" photos, "2015 Christmas" photos, etc.

    There's no specific "place" that either Gallery or Photos stores its pictures. Media Scanner creates a database of all media files when you start the phone or do something media related (like record something or take a picture). Apps like Gallery and Photos look in that database to see which files to display. Gallery shows the name of the last subfolder as the "album" name.
