I want to delete all photos from Google Photos 2 Recommended Answers 85 Replies 1391 Upvotes

I have read multiple posts and threads on deleting all photos at once from Google Photos. They all say to select 1st photo by clicking shift and than last photo and than release shift to select bulk images.
This is where the issue starts.

1 - I can only select 20 to 25 photos visible on screen. Can't scroll anyhow to select more photos below.

2 - When I decrease zoom so I can select more photos, chrome starts freezing.

3 - When I tried from Android app, photos reappears again and again even though back up and sync is off and I have deleted photos from device.

Kindly suggest me aome other way to delete the photos

Hi Jin,
 
Welcome to the Google Photos Help Forum!
 
NOT: "clicking shift and than last photo and than release shift to select bulk images."
 
Yes:  Click the first image in the range, scroll to end of range (not more than about 500 to be safe), THEN hold the shift key until the selection turns blue color and select last image in the range.  Then click the Garbage Can icon.
 
Practice on smaller groups of photos until you are comfortable.
 
On a slow internet connection (up/down) this can be awkward.
 
Let me know if this works.
 
Good luck!  Dougsap (volunteer Google Photos user)

Thanks for the reply sir. But I tried everything. I have around 40mbps internet speed. I think that must be sufficient. I have more than 50000 pics and selecting 50 to 100 pics will take days to delete all pics.

Hi Jin,

Make sure that the first image you select is THE IMAGE,  NOT THE DATE.

Example:



I have successfully selected ranges 100s of times.

Start small and get comfortable with how it works, then start doing larger numbers of images.

Hello, I have a problem with the photos I uploaded some years ago on Panoramio and that now appear on my Google Foto page. Well their size is much more than 15 Gigabyte and I could have problems in receive emails, so that I would ask you and authorize to delete all of them.

Thanks Mohammed! https://support.google.com/photos/thread/197868?hl=en&msgid=35064693

Your script did the job. It's CRAZY that it's so hard to simple select all albums or all found images...!

TIP for others Googling to this: zoom the page out as much as possible, make the screen as big as possible and have the script run. It can do well over 100 images in each iteration. Just paste the code to the console, press Enter (Opera) and be done with it :)
