I was having the same problem. I do notice a (barely visible against light background) exclamation mark in a circle in the lower right corner of the photo, which indicates that my disk is full. (I'm using apple cloud storage.) So that could be it.

If you click the "Google Photos Backup" icon in your menu bar (looks like a gray pinwheel), you should see the "Preferences" option. Clicking this will open the preferences window. There you should see a checkbox for "Also copy photos/videos from external media to" (See image below). Uncheck this box and you shouldn't have the extra backups anymore.

You can group the photos by the camera that took them, using Smart Albums. First click on one of your girlfriend's photos and Show Info under the Window menu. You will see something like this. It's the camera model that is important (I have boxed it in red). My hope is that your iPhone is not the same model as your girlfriend's. If it isn't we are in ...

Two things to note: the small print under "Optimize Mac Storage" states that "Originals will also be stored on this Mac if you have enough storage space", so hopefully the fact that you have plenty of space to spare will qualify as "enough storage space" and nothing will be deleted immediately (hopefully!) even though you're not offered the option in the ...

As of April 2016 Photos does not work like that. Although it sounds like a limitation, it actually makes sense. The program detects "candidate" faces and presents them to you to classify them. After learning about a few of those faces, this opens the door to reassessing pictures that previously would have been deemed without faces.

Yes it does, however Photos will have to regenerate all the thumbnails etc. If you are trying to merge to photos libraries why not open the library you want to merge select all Command+A and then file Export Then drag them into the new library, this way there is no risk of corrupting anything.
