Bringing your Google+ photos to all Chromebooks

Keeping hundreds or thousands of photos backed up and organized can be a challenge. We wanted to make that process a little easier, so earlier this summer we released the Google+ Photos app for Chromebook Pixel.

Today we’re making the app available in the Chrome Web Store for all Chromebooks, in 52 languages. Here’s a quick recap:

1) When you plug an SD card into your Chromebook, the app will automatically get to work and back up your new photos to Google+ (for your eyes only, of course). 

2) When you’re offline, you can still view your most recent photos.

3) Your top shots will be highlighted as you back them up, making it easier to organize and share your favorites.

4) Easily share individual photos, sets of photos, or an entire album right from the app. Simply select the images you want, then click 'Share.'

5) Auto Enhance makes improvements to each photo you add, making your pictures look great. And Auto Awesome creates fun new versions of your photos like short animations and photobooth-style collages.

No love for Chromebox? Or they come under Chromebooks? :) 
 
+Steve McKay You sure that the photos are private only?  I think I might like the app for my Chromebook but don't want EVERY photo I take posted on the web.  
 
+Doug Thompson If you use an Android device, the Google+ mobile app has an Auto Backup feature. This is similar. Photos are uploaded in a private album ready to be shared. 
 
Any chances that this might make it to browsers in other operating systems as well?
 
+Jesus Gonzalez I think this is oriented mostly on uploading and viewing new photos instead of digging around through older stuff.

Bloody hell Google, how behind the curve are you?
 
What happens if I insert an SD card and upload photos at time a) and some time later insert it at time b) and only want to upload the additional photos? What kind of deduping does the uploader do?

The reason I ask is that I have lots of photos already on G+ that are also on my SD card.
 
+Ari Wilson photos are deduped on import. Still, you might find it desirable to save the CPU cycles associated with deduping by emptying your card between imports.
