    Trying to transfer all my google photos to dropbox and use a different secure app (preferably on that can sync directly with my dropbox photos folder) .

    I've grabbed all my photos via a Google Takeout dump, so now I have a few hundred folders each with a jpg and json file. I'm using the Piktures app, but my photos are a mess.

    Is there anyway, be it a different app, or something I can do with the google photos dump to allow the app to organize all these photos automatically via the metadata?

    What kind of organizing are you looking to do?

    I am a big fan of Piktures, but I have never used a "google takeout dump".

    My first guess at a problem is that the dump from google does not contain any "albums" or related folders since Google Photos does not store them in the first place.

    I don't need much functionality in terms of albums, just dating of photos so they're chronological ad much as possible.

    Samsung S10e snapdragon at the moment.

    Just thinking out loud, I wonder if it's something I organize on my desktop, then migrate back to dropbox/Piktures... rather than trying to have the photos app handle it
