Gemini Photos divides all found pictures into two major categories: Similar and Clutter.
Identical or nearly identical photos that are usually taken with a few-second delay and capture the same object on the same background, including those taken from a different angle.
Gemini groups a range of similar photos into a set, marks a “Best Result,” and automatically selects the rest for removal.
Please note that, by default, Gemini doesn’t select the photos you previously added to Favorites.
The Clutter category includes three groups of pictures:
- Blurred: Unclear, out-of-focus shots that capture moving objects or objects without a distinct outline. Note that this group may contain both bad shots and intentionally made blurry photos.
- Notes: Photos of text: documents, receipts, schedules, whiteboards.
- Screenshots: Images that capture your iPhone screens.
By default, the app selects all pictures in this category for removal.
The rest of the photos from your phone that aren't included to the Similar or Clutter categories are placed here. Gemini Photos gathers them to simplify the overall review of your library. The Other category doesn't contain hidden and burst photos.
Gemini Photos uses various criteria to sort photos correctly and choose the best one to keep, but you may have a different opinion on this account. Thus, you should review all photos in every category before deleting them.
