Photography in public places across Europe threatened by harmonization proposal http://ow.ly/30VYuk
The right to use pictures taken in a public place is under threat by a European Parliament proposal for the harmonization of copyright laws across the region. Buried in a complex set of amendments is the idea that the automatic Freedom of Panorama be removed from those countries that maintain it, so that copyright holders of permanent artworks and buildings will need to authorize commercial use of pictures that include their works.

Maybe add a slideshow to the Assistant. With various transitions and effects, (Ken Burns  etc) also add music or a soundtrack. Great for boasting, showing the holiday snaps and also business promo.

Why do they not add a slideshow feature. Select an or tag and album and make a slideshoe. Great with the Ken Burns effect but also good with simple transitions.  (and music/ soundtrack).
Google Photos is the evolution of Picasa Web Photos and Google+ Photos. It is the interface that pulls all Google related photos together. The following are ways to generate photos in to Google's Photo ecosystem: Photos / Vi...

The problem with new Google Photos is not the app but my very slow internet.

Google Photos is great, running on my Nexus 5 and 9 it looks wonderful. excellent editing via Snapseed and wow, unlimited storage of decent sized files so you just don’t have to worry.  
A deal that is so much better than the ‘other' Photos. 

However it does have it’s downside and that is the reliance on a good internet link to the ‘Cloud’. Everything links to the ‘Cloud ‘now, except me. 
In theory yes in practice no, 0.6mb is just too slow to make it an effective tool. 
I manage to work around using small batches and the phone usually uploads one or two at a time, but last week I downloaded the desktop file uploader for Photos from Google. It has discovered my entire Aperture library and is backing it up. 
Incredible, it has taken 4 days so far and is far from complete.
On the way the network demands have been detected by the exchange and it has throttled my download speed even further. Who do I blame; BT of course who promise so much and deliver so little.  #fastershire the commissioning agency for my local council, who advertise the benefits of broadband but have been very tardy in rolling out decent broadband speed to the rural areas.
So beware if you have a slow connection, only activate the auto uploader if you can cope. Otherwise use it to back up the small batches of files as you take them.

The other problem for me is the ‘Cloud’ based editor. Here Google photos desktop editor does not compare with Apples offering. The Google desktop photo editor is in your browser, Apple uses a standalone app that resides on your computer, so it’s zippier, smoother and slick. As Google Photos uses apps ‘out there’ for everything,  click on the photo to edit and ………..wait….. wait ……   and eventually you get to the editor. 
Once it’s there it seems to reside in the cache  for the session but you still have to ….wait… wait ..for each 16mp photo to appear before you can edit it. Again a problem resolved by decent internet connection. Take note #BT.
It’s not as good as Apples editor either, very very basic with the addition of the ubiquitous ‘effects’. 
I use Aperture or another editor so it’s not a big deal but why oh why, have they have chosen to ditch the  wonderful Snapseed editor they used in the older G+  photos?  Hopefully it will come back. Maybe they will produce an option to access a Snapseed app in Chrome or even better a roundtrip to the editor of your choice.

So great stuff Google, not yet perfect though. Most of my complaints relate to the way the Cloud  has to deal with large files and my slow broadband connection which is pretty poor. To be honest it’s the same with Fickr, iCloud and Dropbox.  So you are not to blame for that, but the cloud based editor is a pain on a desktop. OK on the phone and tablet they work well but are not so smooth or integrated as it could be. I am sure there will be an update, hopefully to correct this, you can still access the old G+ photos so nothing is really lost and of course it does give Apple a kick in the right place.
