Google Photos Suggestions & Feedback  - 
 
First, thank you for the great new service. Some suggestions/feedback:

There REALLY needs to be a way to edit EXIF and meta data within the new service. Sometimes they are just wrong or corrupt thanks to moving between many services/media/etc. The sorting/organization features provided by google photos will be useless until we can reliably fix errors in the metadata.

And further on the topic of metadata: I'd really like to be able to add #tags to my images that I could search against.  There's an important context difference between an album (which photos belong to), vs a #tag (which belong to photos).  Tags allow for a greater flexibility in organization, search, etc.

Also, I'd like more control over the final layout of a collage.  I should be able to zoom/pan any given panel, and reorder the images in the panel order.

Finally, there are some tweaks to search/results that should be considered:
 * I'm really surprised that searches like "type:video" or "filename:*.mov" don't work. They should.
 * We should be able to 'hide' faces from the 'people' section of the search page. (it's including people I don't know just because they were in several shots at an event)
 * We should be able to delete a photo from within an album view - it gives me an option to remove it from the album, but not to delete the photo.  This forces needless re-work / re-searching to go find the photo in some other context.
 * The 'places' section of the search page just doesn't work.  I have photos with accurate exif location data showing the photo was taken in NE Indianapolis ... they are being listed as "Delaware".  Others (with correct geotagged exif) from downtown Indianapolis are listed as "Center"

So much of this is available in Google's desktop Picasa (still at v3.9 after many years). Surely the Google Photo team could just replicate these features! I agree with +David Meade​ that any credible photo program needs the ability to view and edit EXIF data. (I use the Adjust Date and Time tool all the time to correct and normalize times when I've used >1 camera on a shoot or if I've neglected to change a camera's time while travelling.)

It is bigger than I'd like ideally ... but I'm still getting one :P

I suspect 2nd gen versions will be smaller (maybe they'll even make one that looks more trek-like).

In any case, its just one of those things that has been on my "why hasn't anyone done this list".  I'm glad to see someone finally is.  

... Now if only it would respond with Majel Barrett's voice.

Nothing will put thoughts of the recent apocalypse out of your mind like an early morning flight over your snow covered town.

New service helps you reserve your preferred username/brand on new startup services. 
We sign you up to new startups so that you don't get stuck with crappy usernames.
