Hi, I’m Andrew Lee, a Software Engineer on the Google+ Photos team.

Two of the most common requests we get are the ability to view photos in a slideshow, and to download complete albums.

Well... you can now view album photos as a slideshow! Just open a photo in the lightbox, hit the slideshow button, and sit back and enjoy the photos full-screen (Example: http://goo.gl/5aNNA).

Today we’re also adding the ability to download complete albums. On an album page, click “More” and then “Download album” to get a .zip file containing the photos in the album (Example: http://goo.gl/EvfFH).

As always: if you want to turn off the ability for people to download your photos, simply go to Google+ Settings (https://plus.google.com/settings/plus) and uncheck “Allow viewers to download my photos.”

We hope you enjoy using these new Google+ features!  Keep the feedback coming!
