[Q] Can someone explain how Google+ Photos works?

I had been using Dropbox for Camera Uploads that I take with my phone so that I know I have them backed up, but Dropbox has such a low storage that I wanted to turn to Google Drive/Google Photos.

Ever since I made the attempted change, it's been a huge headache. From what I've gathered, if you use Auto Backup for your phone, photos that you take will be uploaded to Google Photos BUT not into ANY album and simply sorted by date. Even local files that are neatly organized into folders are just thrown into Google Photos, forcing you to hope you can find that one photo you are looking for.

Of course, you can put those photos into albums AFTER you back them up/upload them but that's a huge pain in the arse to do, so why do they NOT have it organized by folders/albums? Is there no way to do this? I also wanted to be able to do that by having my photos from my desktop to backup to Google Photos but it is a hellish nightmare trying to sort through all of them.

I've searched and searched for questions related to Google Photos but almost none of them have been found, thus I am asking here. Does anyone have anything to help me? I just want to be able to organize my photos (around 2k worth) and not have to take a day or two just to sort my photos in albums when they should be in the first place. :/
