    My Sister just got a Galaxy A20 SmartPhone and Installed Her SD Card from Her Old SmartPhone.

    It works She sees all of Her Photos on the SD Card.

    But every Photo that She Deleted when She was useing Her Old Phone is Back.

    I do not know why all Her Old Photos are back with Her New Photos.
    So I Told Her maybe your Photos from your Old Phone got Backed Up to your G Mail Account.

    Am I Right?

    And is there a way to Login to Her G Mail and Check to See if Her Photos are going there?

    Yes, using a browser, navigate to mail.Google.com and log into her gmail account. In the top right you'll find 3 rows of 3 dots. If you hover over those, it'll tell you that's where you click for Google Apps. Click on the dots. In there you'll see the Google apps. Click on Photos.

    Thank you.
    I LogIn to Her G Mail and Click the Square on the Top Right with all the Dots.

    From the List that drops down I Pick Photos.

    It Opens all Her Photos so I will Tell Her.

    But if I put the Mouse over any Photo on the Top Left of the Photo is a Circle with a Check in it.
    What is the Check for?

    And how does She Delete a Photo from here?

    The circle with a check in it is allows you to chose multiple files. Check photos of interest and then you can delete all the checked one all at once. I think you can also email or share multiple photos the same way.

    To delete a number of photos, put a check in the circle of each one. Once you do that you'll see a trash can appear in the upper right. Alternatively, open a single photo. Once the photo is opened, you'll see the trash can in the upper right. Click on the trash can.

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    After I LogIn to Her G Mail Account and go to Photos Every Photo has a Check in it.

    So I would Take the Check out of the Ones She does not wont to Delete Right?

    And you Say to Drage a Photo to the Trash on the Top.
    Can I just Hit the Delete Key on the KeyBoard?

    Those check marks aren’t really in the circle. Click on one and you’ll see what I mean.

    You don’t drag photos to the trash. You select them then click on the trash can.

    OK I Login to my Sisters G Mail Account and Click the Square with the Dots on the Top Right.
    Then I Pick Photos and it takes me to all Her Photos.

    Now this is what I did not understand?
    If I put my Mouse over any Photo it Shows a Check on the Top Left.

    I thought the Check that is there already was Telling me it will be Deleted if I want.

    so what is the Check that Show if I put my Mouse over a Photo is Telling me what I did not understand you?

    Click on the check that's already there. You'll see that it changes to a different check which indicates that you've selected it.

    Ok thank you for all your help.

    Just one more thing my Sister does not want Her Phone to Back up Photos to Her G Mail.

    So I see Online that you go into Settings then Accounts.
    Then you Pick your G Mail Account.

    And you Turn Off Back up Photos.

    But my Sister has a SamSung Galaxy A20 SmartPhone.

    Anything I Read never Matches what I see on Her Phone.

    Can you Please Tell me in your Words how I go about Turning Off just Back up Photos to Her G Mail?

    She does not want any of Her Photos to be Backed up to Her G Mail.

    I found this Video on YouTube but I do not know if this is how I can Turn Off Backup Photos?

    This is how to Turn Off what things get Auto Backed up to Samsung Cloud.
    Or are my Sister Photos going to Her G Mail?

    If you are doing it through the device then yes. Do you know what the name of the App is that the pictures are viewed through?

    You can look there to see if it does doubtful since that is Samsung Cloud and not Google.

    I think I know what you are getting at?

    Say She goes into the Photos App. then She can Tap the 3. Dots on the Top and go to Settings.

    In here will be how She or me Turns Off the Back up for Her Photos.

    Or am I Off on this?

    You have to turn off backup/sync using the phone, not the computer.
