Question Downloading Whatsapp photos


Established Member

I recently got my phone back from repair. When I re-installed Whatsapp, it asked if I wanted to restore all the photos i had taken/received.
However, they all came back on with the current date and are arranged randomly not chronologically! The only way i can edit is individually which will forever. 😳😔

Is there an easier way?

Not sure. To clarify, images came back under August 2020, the file name in Details shows the real date. They had been backed up to Google Drive.

It's an Sony XZ2. I think I figured it out. The Whatsapp photos are in internal storage in their own folder.
The same photos seem to also be in my album (stored on SD) /Google Photos correctly.

Thanks for helping. 😊
