Can't edit a photo in Google Photos? Maybe this is why.

Earlier today my dad called because he could not edit a photo in Google Photos. After a bit of investigating it turned out that he was trying to edit a photo that was in a shared album.

The trick to edit the photo is simply this:

  • select the photo
  • in the upper right select the info icon and see when the photo was taken (important for a future step)
  • select Save (the photo will now be in your own library)
  • go to the date the photo was taken
  • select the photo and now look for the edit icon and edit as you see fit
Embedded below is a 53 second YouTube tutorial.

Dad Joke:
