Primitive sheep shed most of their wool every year, but domesticated sheep wool just keeps growing and growing if it isn't sheared.
 
I know this word is overused on the Internet, but the photos here really are amazing.

A few tips and comments about +Google Photos 

After playing around with +Google Photos most of yesterday and today I have come to realise a few things that may help people with issues they were familiar with on Google + photos. So here are a few tips and thoughts about Google's photo storage solution(s)

The first thing to realise is all photos go to the same place whether it's:
- Google photos (https://photos.google.com)
- Google+ photos (https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/yourphotos)
- Picasa Web Albums (https://picasaweb.google.com/home)
- Google Drive (in the Google Photos space)

However all 3 will have their own way to upload and manage your photos on Google servers. My guess is, if you want to take advantage of the ability to upload high-res images you will have to do so via the Google Photos interface. Google+ photos will likely still restrict them to a maximum width/height of 2048px and I think Picasa is even lower with only up to 1600px.

Google Photos is also short of many functionalities that people have grown accustomed to which include
- ability to organise albums by file name or by date taken or to just manually place an image in a certain position within the album
- ability to edit the location and the timestamp of a picture
- ability to edit images with filters and other Snapseed-like tools

Both of these can be easily done by reverting to Google+ photos. Within Google+ you will have the Google Photos icon in the menu and when you navigate to it you should see the attached pop-up. Simply go back to Google+ Photos and edit your photos as needed, the changes will then be reflected in Google Photos.

People have been asking about Google Drive as well. It seems you can only import Google Photos files into Drive but not the other way around so if you have image files stored into Drive you would like to move to Photos it seems the only way to do that is to download them onto your desktop and then re-upload them onto Google Photos.

Regarding some of the newer features of Google Photos it appears there are geographical restrictions on who can see the People section where the system groups photos by individuals it recognises. the help section doesn't say which country has access to what but at the time of this writing, the UK wasn't one of the countries the feature was available to.

There is also the possibility to remove images from automatic groups the app pull together. Note that this is only available on mobile and you can only do that for "Things" not "Places".

+Google Photos has been a frustrating experience so far, it has not lived up to the hype and of all the feedback I have noticed about 90% of it seems neutral or negative but I have hopes that Google can take feedback on board and make it a better experience if they want us to use this as our main photo app.

Why you want Google Photos!

(Read my full review: http://goo.gl/9BsDjT )

We all love to take pictures. Smartphones make it easy.

Because it's so easy to take pictures, we take a lot of them. (I personally have more than 80,000 photos and videos which take up more than 215 gigabytes of space.)

That's when the fun ends and the hassle begins. The truth is that managing, sharing and editing photos is harder than it should be. Most of us lost control of our photo collections long ago.

Labeling, tagging and organizing photos is difficult and time-consuming. But if you don't do all of those things, can be hard to find a specific photo.

Pictures are inconvenient to share, too -- especially when people are scattered across different social networks. (And there's always that odd relative who isn't on any of the social networks.)

Editing pictures can be difficult and time-consuming. It's also tediously labor-intensive to do creative things with pictures.

And at some point, all those photos can max out the storage on our phones. Yet we hesitate to delete them because we're afraid of accidentally getting rid of pictures we want to keep.

The only product or service that solves each and every one of those problems is Google Photos, which Google announced Thursday at its Google I/O developers conference.

Here's why I think you'll switch to Google Photos:
