    Google Photos is used by people to take backups and store photos on it in order to avoid losing them while switching phones. But, do you know that you can use Google Photos to create movies, animations and collages. Also, if you delete the movie, animation or collage then it will not delete any original photo you used to make the same. That is only the movie, animation or collage will get deleted not the image used for making it.

    Also, as per the information provided by Google Photos support page, if you delete photos or videos from Google Photos that is in one of your movies, that photo or video will stay in the movie unless you edit the movie. If you edit a movie that features a photo or video that was deleted, that item will automatically be removed from the movie.
