Google+ Photos Back-Up & Restore
Just registered because my head hurts now from constant searching and banging it against a brick wall!
I recently had my phone repaired and when re-setting it back up I noticed I now have a folder in my gallery of Google Back-up pictures. Anyway I decided to turn off the auto back up and delete these pictures. Figuring that although it said delete on device also it would only delete the pictures on the device in that folder! Wrong! Anyway, my point is, all the pictures I deleted, and there were a lot, are showing in my Google photos (because I restored them there) but how do I get them back on my phone? I can't seem to find a way and can't quite understand why there is a back-up facility if you cannot do anything with them once they are backed up? Surely the point of backing something up is so you can restore them if anything happens?
So if anyone has a solution I'd love to hear it.

Re: Google+ Photos Back-Up & Restore
I had several problems with Google Photos - to the extent that I disabled the stock Gallery app and just used the Google photos app as I hated seeing the Picasa folder on my nexus 5.
You could go onto a desktop computer, log into Google and manually save the pics onto a dektop, allowing for you to drag the files over to the phone. Or if you click on the photos within the goolge photos app you can manually download them into your stock gallery app - these will be saved into a "download" folder however

So, to those with a 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 WiFi model (T-210R) have you given up hope for an updateBy ungibbed in forum Samsung Galaxy Tab 3Replies: 10Last Post: 08-21-2014, 11:42 PM
