How to access favorites photos 0 Recommended Answers 4 Replies 1222 Upvotes

So I'm having more trouble with the Google Photos platform. From my research it seems others are annoyed about this feature (or lack of) and there's no real solution. 

I want to be able to access "favorite" or "starred" photos to easily post on Instagram. I don't want to scroll through hundreds of pictures to find the ones I want to post, especially when I want to post multiple at a time. I understand that when I star a photo, it isn't actually saving it locally. 

Is there a way to create an album that IS saved locally, so I can easily access my favorite photos?

Hi Cole1123,
 
Yes this is an issue with how Google Photos works, you can easily clear photos from your device but getting them back is a harder task as you have to download them one by one. It's easier to do this on desktop but then on the desktop site of Instagram you can't share photos. The main issue with this is Instagram/Facebook don't allow you to use Android built in photo picker so every photo has to be on your phone first. You can share directly from Google Photos but only one photo at a time.
 
I suggest leaving a feature request directly for the development team by following these steps:
  1. Open the Google Photos app on a mobile device or go to photos.google.com using a computer .
  2. At the top left, touch or click the menu icon > Help & Feedback.
  3. Touch or click Feedback.
 
Please know that you may not receive a response, however the Photos Team are still reading the feedback! To see all of the feedback you have sent across all Google products, visit the Google Feedback Site.

Hi Denise,

You can pick a favourite picture, but the way that Facebook manage their apps makes this harder to share to those platforms straight through the Android apps.

Incredibly stupid... as most "updates" are proving to be over-simplified, and INCREDIBLY STUPID.
