I'm going to share the first 100 photographers, +Peter From, +Charles Lupica, and a couple of related pages. The full circle will be released on Monday. If you're in this rough draft, please remember to plus and share the post.

         Circle Revision Announcement        
             Great Photographers            
         with less than 15'000 followers            
                  Part 2 

TIP: there are quite a few of you sharing these circles; which is good. However, remember to add several new images to your stream so that your first group of posts has a fair number of photographs in it.

If you missed getting into the first post for this revision, here's a second post. Be sure to plus this post, share this post, and leave a comment if you wish to be included.

There seems to be renewed interest in my Circle of "Great Photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers". So, in cooperation with +Peter From, I'm in the process of putting together a new circle from the ground up. It doesn't matter if you're into nature, portrait, street, or any other type of photography, as long as your stream contains good quality original work. Everyone with 15'000 followers or fewer is welcome to ask for inclusion.

Rules:
• no animated gifs
• profile that supports the idea of being a photographer
• profile picture and preferably, a set of banner images
• Inclusion by request. If you do not request to be included you won't be in the circle.
• If you suggest someone, they must follow up and request inclusion.
• Any one requesting inclusion is asked to kindly share this post. If you don't wish to share do not ask to be included.
• People who don't share may be excluded from future circles.
• I trim my circles frequently. If you want to guarantee inclusion you need to add me and +Peter From to your circles, if we're not already in them.

If you're a photographer and want to be a part of the new circle, let me know in the comments. I ask you kindly to reshare this post so that I can promote as many talented photographers as possible when it'll be time to share this circle with the rest of the world.

Depending on how fast this circle fills up, I intend to share it toward the end of next week.

Rearrange photos and move photos between albums

Hi, I’m +Isaac Sparrow an Engineer on the Google+ Photos team.

Rearranging photos and moving them between albums are two of our top feature requests. Today, we’re excited to launch an album organizer so you can better tell the story of your photos.

To get started, open one of your albums and select Organize album from the Options menu. With the album organizer you can:

Sort photos by time: Click Order by date to sort all photos in the album by the photo date, from earliest to latest. Click it again to sort them from latest to earliest.

Reorder your photos: Select the photos you want to reorder and drag them to their new position in the album. You can also move selected photos to the start or end of the album by clicking Move to top or Move to bottom.

Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album.

Delete a bunch of photos: Click Delete to delete the selected photos.

Once you are done, click Done organizing to return to your album view. Happy story-telling and keep the feedback coming!

It's about time...though wasn't too big a deal since you could do it through Picasa already but it's nice to be able to do on G+ natively now!

Yes! This is gonna come in very handy.
 
Google+ now has Finally Backlinks to Original Posting

One of the most used features on Google+ is the SHARE
Sometimes postings have a few hundred shares and there was only a link to the original profile of AUTHOR of the posting, but not to the exact shared posting.

Now a link to the original posting is included
Try it by yourself and share this posting and you will see.

It is really hard to understand, why it took the Google+ team so long to include this feature.


On Wednesday I had posted a question in the Google+ hangout but it was not answered in the hangout. Because in the Google+ API all information is available for the backlink. And now this nice makeup is there.

Thanks Google+ Team

+Andrew Brown has spotted it in a one of my share first.

PS: sorry for taking this reshared posting for demonstration +Robert Anderson

As a fan of both the Portal games and A Nightmare Before Christmas, this was a very enjoyable and catchy song/video.

Help get the word out.

Spread the word | Read | Act | Fight | Learn | Tell

If you're a U.S. citizen, Sign this petition. By: +Desiaire Rickman https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

What is ACTA? Learn more about it

What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources:

- Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet https://www.eff.org/issues/acta

- Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text http://www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreements-accords-commerciaux/fo/acta-acrc.aspx?lang=eng&view=d

- Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history http://www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreements-accords-commerciaux/fo/intellect_property.aspx?view=d

- Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden where in he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA:
_ Letter 1 http://wyden.senate.gov/newsroom/press/release/?id=12a5b1cb-ccb8-4e14-bb84-a11b35b4ec53

_ Letter 2 http://infojustice.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Wyden-01052012.pdf

Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here:

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Happy Easter for those who celebrate it. For this #selflesssunday , I'm sharing a photo from a good friend of mine and awesome photographer +Joline Seymour. She's not in many people's circles, so I'm hoping that will change.

I love this photo taken by +Michael Menefee of a Colorado sunset. Great colors and such a beautiful location.

The North Fork of the Poudre River runs through this beautiful valley found west of Livermore, Colorado. The view here was enjoyed from Eagle's Nest Open Space, a favorite local haunt of mine. It's like my own little Palouse at the right time of year. ;-)

Group "10.000 Photographers Around The World" -- Part III
+10000 Photographers around the World
Unfortunately I had to close the 1. and also 2. post, because there is a limit of max. 500 comments per post on Google+. Therefore, I open here the same article again:
I'm sorry, but such a great interest I did not expect. Do not worry, all have their turn. It just takes some time. - Please read on:

Here again the original text: 10000 Photographers around the World
Due to massive technical problems it is necessary to transfer the group "10000 Photographers" to a new server with new rules and conditions:

10000 Photographers around the World
http://gpc.fm/l/10photographers
As a new and special service I'm going to share all members of this group periodically in circles. So you do'nt need individually add them to your circles. This new service is only in this group and list available and very comfortable.
Google+ Counter has been created by +Ralf Rottmann We thank for that! Therefore, it is only fair that all members of the group "10000 Photographers“ add +Ralf Rottmann in their own circles.
Unfortunately, there is no automatic way. Therefore, I must register all members of the group individually. This is very tedious and time consuming. Each profile ID must be entered individually. I therefore ask for your patience until I have transferred thousands of members. I cannot work the whole day only on it. I'm adding new members every day from my circles and those who register here. Approximately I've already entered 700 members. I have not taken over all members of the previous list. I've watched every single profile. I first added only persons from my circles and which have myself in their circles. That is not too much to ask for this job on one side. Furthermore, only real serious participants are included in the list. Those who commente here, are added first.

Rules and conditions to be, to stay and to get a member of Group "10000 Potographers":
1. You must share public this post in your stream!
2. You add the founder and curator +Robert SKREINER to your circles!
. . This is necessary so that you can be informed about all changes.
3. You give +1 to this post and a comment, that you want to be added.
4. You add +Ralf Rottmann to your circles as thanks for Google+ Counter!
5. You share always the new circles about this group!
6. You must publish at least one own photo per week at Google+
7. You have to comment regularly on some photos of members of the list.
8. You must not be inactive for more than 4 weeks on G+ as a group-member!
9. You add the PAGE +10000 Photographers around the World to your circles!
. . This is very important for communication and all new information!

Please don't forget to 'share public' this information and the regularly published circles!

The person behind the camera is more important than the camera they're using.
Introduction
I'm a laid back kinda guy, with a sarcastic sense of humor. I take a while to get to know people and open myself up to them. I've taken up photography as a hobby. People have complemented me on my good eye. I like B&W and nature photography, especially sunsets. I've recently gotten into Paintography, and really enjoy turning my photos into paintings. I enjoy going through nature trails here in Florida taking photos to pass the time. I love to cook. My style can be best described as a fusion between Italian and Puerto Rican cuisine.

Circles you can place me include:

- Photography
- Paintography
- Foodies
- Animal Lovers
