Several Google Photos users have complained that their old photos have been “corrupted”.

According to 9To5Google, Google Photos users scrolling through their library going back a few years have found photos that can best be described as “corrupted” in recent days.

People began to notice that their photos from years ago (more than five years old) had lines and deep cracks and other blurry or distorted areas, the report said.

“White dots are also a common phenomenon. Some images are more damaged than others and there doesn’t seem to be a pattern of what was affected or the severity,” the post added.

According to those affected, the corruption persists when the image is downloaded.

Obviously, this applies to individual downloads as well as when using Google Takeout. The original copies of the pictures don’t seem to be affected, but the edited copies appear in the Google Photos apps.

According to the report, it doesn’t appear that all users are having this issue, but it seems to be affecting a fairly significant number.

Meanwhile, Google added new filters to Google Photos this year to help users show off their skin in its truest hue.

With the Pixel 6 series, the tech giant has been working to tweak the phone’s camera to more accurately capture a wide variety of human skin tones so people can see themselves in photos.
