Gotta love those new Google search fonts, no?? NO!!

What are they thinking. Kill iGoogle (THE most useful home page ever)  and make search so ugly you can't wait to find an alternative.

Now what has Google done to make + less appealing?

Starship at the Sweetwater 4/28/2012

Great show, learning new camera. On the rail and a bit close for anything other than tight shots.

Final Test

Now trying to share an individual photo that is from an uploaded album without sharing the entire album in a post. If this works, I have it down now :)

Trying to find the easy way to upload photos to albums from Lightroom and then announce that they are there with a photo to link into the album with a posting in my stream. Consider this the first test.

Photo Sharing and Social Networks...

I like to shoot pictures, and as most like to put some up from time to time to share. I have never liked Flickr which seems non-intuitive and not the best for displaying images. I have several albums over at Shutterfly. I made my own Flash site for photos but it is horribly slow, although rather neat. I tried a half dozen HTML sites which I tweaked. Tried 500px. Considered a photo blog, but too much work to maintain in my opinion.

I have never figured out why I want Twitter in my life (maybe another story) and Facebook seems to change too often for me to be comfortable being a power user there. It also does not seem to be the best option for photo sharing. Which brings us to Google+.

Its really not bad as far as I can see. Difficult to re-order albums and profile will only show 4 albums including the profile photos that I could care less about but cannot be hidden. I also can't eaily share a link to either my profile or photo albums (unless I am missing this) like I can at bobulius.shutterfly.com/. But it is fast and a reasonable image display base. So, I have put a few toes in the water.

One problem is my circles are small here especially compared to the group of friends I have at FB. So perhaps I will cross post and see if I can attract a few of my friends there over to Google+.

If you have any interesting thoughts on online photo sharing, I'd love to hear in comments below. For now, I'll see how this works out and how Google responds with adding more photo tools.

PS. Hmmm. Just tried to add a photo for one of my G+ albums to this post and I can't it seems. Can from my phone or computer, but not from an existing album. Seems odd this is not possible.
