What's Up with Google+ Photos moving to Google Photos? What does it mean?

I've gotten SO MANY questions today that I decided to make a video! There's also a little tutorial in there on how I am now using Google Photos to upload photos, create albums, share to communities, etc etc.  I just posted this over on the blog at but thought I would post here too.

I'll kind of summarize here too:

- Effectively, nothing really changes because you can still upload photos and share them on Google+ publicly or in communities.

- The new Google Photos is just an improved interface which I like way better because I can upload once and share anywhere.

- People can still comment on photos that are posted to G+ or Communities... hashtags, tagging, and all that stuff still works...

- You can still access all your old photos and videos on Google+ from the photos tab of your profile page.

- None of your old comments and +1's will go away (where did people get that from?)

- And, as you can see in my video below, you can still edit your photos using the robust tools, all of which I think will get merged together at some point.

Any questions?  (not sure I can answer the harder ones, or I can just make up an answer.)

Many people think the point of higher education is economic: graduates get better paying jobs and the economy gets the knowledge-workers it needs. But, there is another story. There is a role for higher education in skilling-up citizens so they can play an active and effective role in a democratic society. Hear from political philosopher, Professor Fred D'Agostino as he shares numerous examples of this alternative story.

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep

The new compose now has a full-screen option

After Gmail's new compose rolled out to everyone in March, many of you sent us requests for features you'd like to see added. We listened carefully to your feedback and as as result, the new compose now offers a full-screen option.

When this option is enabled, the compose window is centered in your inbox and expands to fit on your screen.  In addition, the formatting toolbar is on by default.  You can click on the expand button in the top right to switch to full-screen or set full-screen as the default by selecting Default to full-screen in the more options menu in the bottom right.

The full-screen option is rolling out to everyone over the next couple of days.
