Restore, Ideally Partial, of Google Photos to Android

    I had to do a factory data reset to attempt to resolve an issue with my Droid Turbo; this wipes the phone.

    I discovered that when I restarted the phone after the FDR and entered the primary Google account, it automatically restored from a Google backup without asking if this was what I wanted -- very unclear.

    Since the reason for the wipe was to troubleshoot, I didn't want a full automatic restore -- the largest amount of data on the phone is Photos. Si, I wiped it again and skipped entering the account until fully set up and then automatic restore didn't happen.

    If I sync, ALL the photos come back -- I want to sync only SOME of the Google Photos, ideally, say the last year, not all of them.

    Any ideas?
