Hi, I use google photos as my main "gallery" interface and for backup having switched various devices since 2016, all of my photos are backuped there.
Looking for help in organisation :
If I create albums - google can use ai to add photos to a "family" or "friends" album via face recognition - this is a great feature, however ,when I look in the main gallery I see all the photos together , those which have been assigned to an album and those which have not.
I am looking for a way to see which photos are then *not categorized* in any album so I can work on organising those.... Is there a way to view only those?
regarding whatsapp photos - I have an options to backup these up as well, this however makes a complete mess in the library, because said photos do not have a timestamp and are suddenly all thrown into the date of the backup ?! - any way around this?
also regarding whatsapp photos - is there a way to backup only photos from *specific* chats (i.e. family) and not backup the rest so the library is kept at a minimum?
many many thanks.

Welcome to Android Central! That's an interesting question, but as far as I know, there's no way to see which photos in your main photo feed have not been added to an album.

I don't use WhatsApp, so I'm afraid I can't comment on that. Hopefully someone else here has some experience with that.
