I recently started uploading photos to google photos, and it’s seemed to be pretty solid so far. However, when I’m trying to organize photos into albums by date (like wedding photos or vacation photos), the photo search seems to be a total failure!
Here are two photos taken in the same minute of the same day during our vacation to Hawaii:
It looks like Google Photos properly parsed the photo metadata (EXIF tags) and recognizes that both photos were taken on October 7, 2012 (which they were). However, when I search in Google Photos for “October 7, 2012” or “October 2012”, one of those photos does not show up anywhere!?!
Even weirder, is when I search for the original filenames, only one of these photos shows up!
Any ideas? My only thought is that since I uploaded all these photos the system is still trying to process all the images in the background and the search indices haven’t been updated?
