Is there any way to delete certain photos from my phone without having them deleted from Google Photos? How does the "Free up space" option work when the phone and Photos sync if the photos aren't on the phone? I don't want to delete all 500 photos from my phone using this option, I just want to get rid of some and use Photos to archive them.

I'm having this problem with my Google Pixel. This phone was already such a horrid regret, and now it's taken my faith in Google devices and thrown it in the trash. I have done everything it says to do, and yet when I delete a photo from my phone, it deletes it off the Google photos too. It says it's backed up, so why is it being deleted from the place it's supposed to be backed up in?!

Mine has the options but it’s deleting from both my phone and the google photos.  Do I need to un-synk them?
