    Can't find source photos for a shared album on Google Photos


    I few months ago I uploaded photos to an album in my Google Photos account (on my PC Windows 10), then shared that album. I tried going back into that album today and could not find either the photos or the album. However, I can still view the photos via the shared link created several months ago. What happened to my photos and how do I access them so I can edit the album?

    :)

    Why did the photos app auto-create a random photo album?

    The automatic album creation is a new feature:

    (Source: Microsoft documentation.) It didn't add all the photos taken on that date because it thought some were too similar to others:

    Date and time are definitely taken into account when grouping the photos; a CNET article suggests there might be more complex logic too:

    The location would be determined from information embedded in the picture by the device that took it.

    Concerning the uninvited appearance of the app: That seems to be a bug experienced by many people with the management of Universal app processes. For some, it's caused by a certain version of DisplayFusion.

    Photo Album Page

    This is best done with Flash or PHP.
