Google+ has added features that let you more easily rearrange photos and move them between albums, photos, which can get quite cumbersome to manage.
"Sweet!" "Finally!" and "Cool" were just some of the comments on Isaac Sparrow's Google+ page, where the engineer for the Google+ Photos team introduced the new features.
"Rearranging photos and moving them between albums are two of our top feature requests. Today, we’re excited to launch an album organizer so you can better tell the story of your photos," he wrote.
Here are his instructions to get started:
Open one of your albums and select Organize album from the Options menu. With the album organizer you can:
Sort photos by time: Click Order by date to sort all photos in the album by the photo date, from earliest to latest. Click it again to sort them from latest to earliest.
Reorder your photos: Select the photos you want to reorder and drag them to their new position in the album. You can also move selected photos to the start or end of the album by clicking Move to top or Move to bottom.
Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album.
Delete a bunch of photos: Click Delete to delete the selected photos.
Once you are done, click Done organizing to return to your album view. Happy story-telling and keep the feedback coming!
Google Docs will also be a part of the "core Hangouts experience for all users" of the group video chat/meeting feature of G+, said Google software engineer Robin Schriebman on her G+ page.
The program has been used "from trip planning and lecture notes to doodling and charades," she said.
To use Google Docs in G+, here are Schriebman's instructions:
Click on the new “Docs” button inside your hangout.
You can add an existing document, or upload a new one.
Added documents are available as a list on the left-hand side.
You can switch between and collaboratively edit multiple documents at once.
