Is there anyway to move a album in the gallery's file out of the DCIM folder but still have it synced with the gallery album? I want to have a quick in gallery album to move my images out of DCIM to not have them within the backup for google photos. or will I have to use my file manager?

Hey there @Andreas S, I hope you're doing well.

Can you clarify what it is that you're trying to do, it is a bit confusing to me.

hello @Rydah 

is there a way to move the location files you put in an album in your gallery so that they don't end up under DCIM(camera folder) in the file directory in your internal storage? since from what iv been able to read google photos backs everything from that folder up and syncs it I want to have a quick and easy way to move my images out of it so they are not synced. hope that clarifies

Remove or disable Google Photos app, I use the web based version of Google Photos so that I can manually select the photos I want uploaded to Google Photos
