I had never paid any attention to the albums that Google Photos automatically creates. However, once I did take a look I see that it is very inaccurate.

A picture of the Nirvana album Unplugged in NY shows up in the category "cars". A picture of the ELP album Trilogy shows up in the category "selfies". Multiple pictures of Halloween inflatables in yards show up in the category "fires". Christmas tree pictures from my house show up in the category "concerts".

Is Google Photos just bad at figuring out what the pictures are? Is there any way to "train" Google Photos to categorize pictures better?

I've had a few instances where something tripped it up... I had some junk in a bowl full of solvent that it marked as food, but on the whole the thing is pretty accurate. It might not be 100% of the time, but 100% of the time, I appreciate that it took said time and saved me the hassle.

The other weird thing is that I checked to remove the ELP picture from selfies but my choice wouldn't save. I ended up deleting that picture from Google Photos, since I don't need album art backed up.

But how do I get my Christmas tree pictures out of the concerts category and still save them? Same problem with the Halloween inflatables that aren't fires.
