as you are the boss of +Google+
and an avid photographer, I'm writing to request that the Google+ team please concentrate on fixing photo uploads and album creation. Failed uploads of pictures, and especially videos, plague the album creation process. Often times the videos will say processing for eons and rarely play. This happens from Android phones, iPhones, on WiFi or on mobile networks. No rhyme or reason. Also, if the video is already auto-backedup, why would it ever have problems since it's already on your servers?
Albums are a frustration on mobile (or the Web) because as we create an album we try to tell a story with our photos, however our carefully selected order of photos is immediately disregarded by Google+ and it is put in very random order. A prime example of this is an album where we have over 1061 pictures of my daughter, chronicling her first 3 years of life with a picture a day. When we view this album, it will slip photos in random order instead of respecting the time stamps order we have selected. Much less 10 photos from a trip that we'd like to put in order despite time stamps. Facebook puts number labels on photos as you select them, ensuring the proper order. This seems like it should be an easy fix for G+. It would also be nice to be able to "title the album" of a post on mobile as its created instead of it being titled with the date and "Photos from posts".
We are avid users of Google+ to share our experiences with our families, but the really shining jewel of G+ (photos and pictures) needs some bug fixing attention. It makes it hard to attract new users if 50% of their photos fail to upload. I've submitted tons of feedback when I encounter any issues but these things have been going on nearly from the beginning with little fix. It's been a long time since we've had substantial G+ improvements (except "stickers" for some reason), so I'm hoping all this is in the works.
(Oh, and while I'm requesting things, please add the ability to attach pictures/gifs to comments and a proper hamburger menu on the left) #issues #googlephotos #photography #faileduploads #help #bugs
