So Frustrated with Google+ photo management!
It seems google wants us all to take pictures with our phones and autobackup to Google+, and just be happy with that.
- Tagging a friend gives them access to the whole album. What?
- Picasa is so buggy I no longer trust it for archiving photos. It duplicates people albums (sometimes dozens of duplicates) and after spending literally hours cleaning that up; in 2-3 days the duplicates come back! I see this bug was logged 2 YEARS ago and is still not fixed. It appears Picasa has been abandoned by google.
- Photos autobacked up from phone to google+ cannot be synced back to picasa or PC without jumping through hoops. Its as iff google thinks all photos come from phones,.
I have a large photo project to do for the family where I need to tag thousands of scanned photos (faces and events). With these bugs I really think I am going to look elsewhere to store and tag the photos. Its ashame; I love most google services, but it seems google is just dropping the ball on decent reliable photo management.
