Google Photos: delete pictures directly from an album

The feature is a bit hidden, but this is how the mobile app lets you not only remove a picture from the album, but also delete it from the photo collection.

In the web version, when deleting photos, you have been able to choose for a while whether you want to remove an image from an album only or move it to the recycle bin and thus delete it from the entire photo collection. Unfortunately, this was not previously possible in the mobile version. In the meantime, you can also delete an image directly from an album in the mobile version.

  1. Open the Google Photosapp and select an album.
  2. Tap the picture you want to delete.
  3. Here you go to Three points-Symbol.
  4. Below the picture you can see the usual functional descriptions such as add to album, Move to archive slide show, print etc.
  5. If an image is already in the album, it will appear here first Remove from album (see screenshots). To delete it completely, you have to swipe to the far right. still after help and feedback then finally comes Move to Trash.
  6. The photo is not deleted immediately, but just moved to the recycle bin. It remains there for 60 days and is only finally deleted afterwards. So if you accidentally deleted a photo, you can still get it back (via the Galerie and there at waste paper bin).

A notice: This was done using an Android 11 smartphone and Android mobile photos version
