Google Photos is a phenomenal service, and a terrible gallery app.

I have been using Google Photos for a couple of years now, and I’m quite impressed with what it can do.

Mostly I like Google Photos because it keeps at least a moderate resolution copy of every photo from my hard drive (based on folders I've authorized Picasa/Google Photos to sync - I don't sync all folders).
