Does anybody know why there are 100s of screen caps, screen shots in my google photos of CW3 boards? How do I prevent this from continuing?

UPDATE: I was able to determine it all started on 6/719 and many days the pics in my google pic folder are 15-20 images of CW3 games, some I never even played.

I suspect you may have set Google photos to automatically upload images from folders on your computer? You may have set it up so that it looks at folders where those images are stored? I have Google Photos, and so not have this issue.

You're probably best off asking in a Google Photos support forum.
