    Stop wasting your time counting characters and let Google do it they'll do a better job and it really isn't going to help your rankings anyway.

    So nothing would make me happier than not having to put in meta descriptions, and just letting Google handle it. But! Search Console brings up duplicate descriptions, short descriptions, etc. as potential HTML improvements. If these don't really matter, why are they registering as a problem?

    Or are those only showing in SC because the descriptions are already there, and Google's just saying "Well if you're gonna have it, might as well do it right". But would otherwise not mention anything had they not been there in the first place?

    And, if I remember right, even if we do put in a meta description, Google may opt to just not use it and put up whatever anyways?

    Google definitely does a better job. However, if your webpage is all about images and there are no texts from which Google can pull out a relevant meta description, then Google won't be able to do it for you.

    While I can agree with your senirio the orginal question isn't about a page of images.
