“Is it possible to restore photos after I have cleared trash in Google Photos?” added Shawn, “Just deleted hundreds of photos from Google Photos, and then trash, with a plan to re-upload them from my mobile device. Then I realized it cleared the images from my phone storage as well. I have lost all my photos. Is there any way to get them back?”
