Picasa / G+ / GDrive Integration Is A Mess
Google really needs to sort out its Picasaweb / GDrive / G+ Integration. Let me see if I can correctly describe the current arrangement:
From G+ you can upload a photo (which will then be placed in a folder in Picasaweb). Or you can use a photo from Google Drive. Or you can use a photo that's in your Instant Uploads folder (came from your phone). The Instant Uploads folder is also on Picasa Web.
However, if you want to use a photo that's already on Picasa, you have to go their first and share. Why?
And if you store photos on G Drive... it's not on Picasa. Why?
Google Drive should be the method to integrate all the Google properties and centralize storage.
G+ should have access to stuff stored on all the Google services.
