The best Google Photos tricks to organize your gallery
If you want to have your photo gallery in Google Photos better organized, these tricks will help you optimize it in the best possible way.
Adjust video editing
When we are creating this video in Google Photos, we have a couple of options to edit it. The videos that we have selected in the gallery are shown in the same order in which we have chosen them, although it is possible that this is not the order in which you want them to be viewed in that video. Luckily, in the application you can choose that order to your liking, as follows:
- Select the videos from the gallery.
- On the edit screen, you see the videos at the bottom of the screen.
- Press and hold on the video to move.
- Move it to the desired location.
- Repeat the process with each video to get the desired order.
Another aspect to consider is the sound of the video. Google Photos defaults to music in the video we create, as we mentioned before, which is possibly something that not everyone wants. There are several options in this regard, since we can delete music, put a song that we want and also mute each video individually, which is done as follows:
- On the video editing screen, if you want to mute the video, click on the music note.
- Choose the mute option.
- If you want to add a song, click on the musical note and choose either your music or Google’s own songs.
- To mute an individual video, tap on the three vertical dots on the right.
- Press Mute.
So you go to have the sound or music you want in your videos, either choosing a song that you like or using the selection that the application itself makes available to us in this case.
