Google Plus for apps mitigation..

Google added a "Google+ is not yet available for Google Apps" page to http://plus.google.com .. and it even allow you to switch accounts. Small thing, I'm sure, but a nice step forward.

Why are Google tying the accounts to profiles?

I'm sure there are both historical and business merit to do the lockin on the profiles/accounts to email addresses and even more I appreciate that every account need to have a valid email address associated with it.

But when that is said I still wonder - from a user experience point of view I'm not quite thinking this is the right thing to do.

This does not really apply to me, but think about businesses - and their employees - using Google mail for their company mail and G+ as tool to reach customer. Would you have this tied to the private email or the apps email?

Since there is much more to communicating and G+ than just email .. take IM (aka GTalk) as an example. Would it not be logical to allow the circles to also know different sides of you - are you coach in the local tennis club and use a separate email address for this .. etc.

Sure we could have multiple G+ profiles for these things - which some also will do - but the mix is happening a lot already today .. how many do not use their work email for private use. Do you colleagues becomes friends or do you move on and still use your network (as the old colleagues now are called).

So why the tie-in?

Inspired by +Trey Ratcliff's HDR tutorial I went ahead and downloaded Photomatix and processed this picture from Grand Teton National Park. At the time I took the picture I did bracket the exposure (+1, 0, -1) in anticipation of some kind of HDR processing.

Originally I processed this directly in Photoshop and the outcome was .. well .. not as good as I would like. The image here is after being processed in Photomatix (complete with watermarks, trail you know) and with by tweaking sliders from the values Trey suggested in the tutorial. I'm not saying that I could not have done this better, but this is better than I've ever done before. Photomatix did a bit better than my previous attempts but the tutorial have given me a huge step in the direction of where to go next ..

Jezzz .. this is odd. I like the steps Jay explains, but honestly why do I not get to use "an existing album" when using the post message on the wall.. ups .. stream page .. when clicking on the fancy little camera?
Upload and Share in a Single Step...in about six steps :-)))

Here is how to upload a single image into your album and share it at the same time.

Step 1: Click on the "Photos" icon as shown below.
Step 2: Click on "Upload New Photos" button. This will bring up an upload dialog pop-up.
Step 3: Select an "add to an existing album" to upload to or create a new album.
Step 4: "Select photos from your computer" to upload.
Step 5: Click on "Add Photos" button at the bottom right corner of the pop-up box. This button will only appear after you have selected photos to upload.
Step 6: After you have added the photographs to your album a new pop-up box will appear that will allow you to share the photos you have just uploaded.

The final result will be similar to what you see in this post: A link to the album as well as the new image that you have uploaded will display in the post.

I have tried this method while uploading 1-2 images at time and it works. If anyone tried this method with few images and let me know the results, I will update the post.

Hope this helps. Feel free to share this post if find it helpful.

Angels Landing! The first time I was in Zion National Park I was not really impressed. Sure the narrows was cool .. it's sure cool to hike the narrows. But the park.

First time I came directly from Arches - which is cool .. but over the years it has grown on me. It's an amazing park with stunning views. This one from Angels Landing.

At Havasu Falls near the village of Supai you find some of the most spectacular views around.

First when I was trying to capture the fall I was annoyed by the local kinds playing in the water - I usually prefer people less pictures - but suddenly the boy added another perspective to the photo.

Not only does it show the magnificence of the waterfall, but it gives the picture life and purpose.
