    Welcome to Android Central! Remember that the Gallery app isn't a location where photos are stored -- it compiles a database of all of the images that are saved anywhere on your phone's storage, and displays them. It may also show photos that are saved in the cloud only (like in your Google Photos cloud library).

    Check the Info on one of those duplicate photo pairs. Where are both of them stored? Is one locally saved, and the other saved to the cloud somewhere?

    @Pera Detlic1:

    If one of the pictures is on the phone and the other is in the cloud, the app has no way of knowing whether he wants to keep the first, the second, or both - so it's best to delete files manually.
    @the original poster:

    An "album" name is just the last folder name in the string starting at / and going to the folder (like /DCIM/Camera/vacations/2017 would be in a folder named 2017). Use a file manager (My Files will work), find each picture and decide whether to keep it or delete it, depending on where it is.
