Now it’s even easier to save and share photos from your Chromebook.

With the Google+ Photos app you can back up photos and videos any time you connect a phone, camera, or storage card to your Chromebook.  With our newest update Auto Backup will continue in the background even when the app is closed, making it even easier to get photos from your camera out to friends and family.

Just plug an SD card into your Chromebook and your photos and videos will be automatically backed up to Google+ Photos (for your eyes only, of course).  And that’s it! You can move on to other things or even close the app, knowing that your memories will be saved for you.

A progress bar shows how many photos have been backed up and you can pause it at any time, like when you need to give a presentation or move to a slower connection.  You’ll get notified when the backup is complete and your photos and videos are ready to share.

Nice update, thanks! I prefer the SD-card method from connecting the camera with a cable, as then I can also save the photos in an album on Google+.
 
Great update, looking forward to seeing how this app progresses. I assume Highlights and Stories are on the road map?
 
Okay. I'm not in front of my Chromebook right now (at work). Can I access photos from G+ Photos via other services?  Example. If I used Pixlr?
 
Hi, i have the HP 11 Chromebook, but the updated G+ app says it is not compatible. 
is it because i do not have an SD slot? 
 
I'd want this to work for a CF card connected via the USB port.
 
I think this is cool, but only for the small and getting smaller community of folks taking pictures on a device without the ability to auto-upload pics. Your phone of course! Yeah, yeah, I know "quality". Whatever, last year's top model phones take really great pictures unless you need life-sized posters, or you're a photographer for National Geographic, and they can auto-upload to G+, skipping all this SD card transferring off routine.
 
Thanks you. I had not been using this app. This could change everything. I've been very frustrated with loading photos from SD cards using my Chromebook.
