Contact lists in Google Photos and Gmail

By zlzpqx ·
Tags: Google
I have deleted some names from my Gmail Contacts list. Yet they continue to appear in Google Photos when I click on the Share icon for a photo in Google Photos. How do I get rid of them? (I had never added them myself in Google Photos; so they must have appeared there through Google's syncing of Gmail and Google Photos. Yet the syncing obviously does not work regarding my deletion of contact names in Gmail.)

Google will have to fix this one.

You look up even on Sundays postings of different people and then promptly provide them highly competent help.

I highly admire your dedication to your undertaking.

I am certain that other people whom you help also much appreciate your dedicated prompt help.

Thank you. Let me explain something.

Some call me mad but at times I really hope someone will come along and prove some of my answers wrong. This is one of those answers.

I wish there was a solid fix but today, right now, Google's Android and collected apps appear to do what you noted with no clear option to "make it stop."

Thanks again for your kind words.
