So many pictures! How do I find what I want quickly?


I currently have 134 gigs of pictures in my Google Photos. I'm not sure of the math but I'm pretty sure that is tens of thousands of pictures. Sometimes it can be really difficult to find what I am looking for.

I used to open up the Google Photos tab in Google Drive. Scrolling through the endless photos isn't the best use of time.

Here are a few ways I have found to make the hunt slightly easier.

I start by visiting - photos.google.com
I am presented with a new screen full of various options.

By clicking on the search bar the screen changes and presents you with a number of options. Most of these choices are self explanatory. I do love the idea of click on the faces of my children, I get all kinds of images I had totally forgotten about. It is similar to that Facebook feature but so many more images to view.

Another option is search by date. I typed in July and up popped a huge number of vacation images from the past ten years. 

Click the hamburger icon in the upper left corner of the main screen and you will be presented with a pop out menu. Check out the options presented for new ways to view your images.

This machine is so STEM, you just gotta see it.

Soda machine at 5 Guys. STEM is everywhere. My wife was out of town and I had not listened to what we were supposed to do for dinner...
