I can’t even begin to imagine. The 10’s of thousands of engineering hours that Google has invested in the Google+ project. When Google+ was launched in June 28, 2011. The Mountain View company explained that “online sharing is awkward. Even broken.”
So Google set a goal for itself — to fix this issue. And I believe that the company has done a rather nice job. Yesterday, Google+ received a brand new look. But most prominent is Google’s continued loyalty to the photographer.
Photos: your darkroom is now a Google data center:
Auto Backup (aka Instant Upload). Too many pictures stay stranded on the phone, so with your permission, we’ll automatically backup your mobile pics as you snap them.
Auto Highlight. It helps you find your favorites faster by de-emphasizing duplicates, blurry images and poor exposures, and focusing instead on pictures with the people you care about, landmarks, and other positive attributes.
Auto Enhance. Taking a good photo and making it great is a task generally reserved for professional photographers. That’s why, for example, we continue to support and improve tools like the Nik Collection.
Auto Awesome. Sometimes we’ll create a brand new image based on a set of photos in your library. For example: if you upload a sequence of photos, we’ll try and animate them automatically.
Call To Action
If you don’t’ have a Google+ get one — it’s free. Then use it.
If you have a Google+ account then use it often. Post your images, your projects, your thoughts and helpful advice. Build your Google+ community — and drive that traffic back to your web site.
