Viewing and sharing photos is a huge part of the Google+ experience. So today we're excited to launch a new way to find & explore even more awesome pictures.
When you reach the end of an album in the lightbox, we'll now highlight more albums by the photographer, more photos of people in the current album, as well as popular photos across Google+. The end of every album is now the beginning of another adventure!
This feature will be rolling out gradually on desktop, so if you don't see it yet, rest assured you'll see it soon. Enjoy!
Google+ is full of amazing photos, and today we're introducing the ability to pan and zoom when viewing photos from your desktop. To give these features a try, simply open a large photo in the lightbox, then:
– use your mouse wheel to zoom in or out – click and drag to pan right, left, up or down
Higher resolution photos will offer more to explore, so we're excited to launch pan and zoom just weeks after launching full-size backups of your Android photos (http://goo.gl/KRpjE).
Give 'em a go, and let us know your thoughts as we improve on these and other features!
Interesting post on Google's strategy with Google+ (mostly user acquisition).
Nice to see comments on this sort of posts are progressively troll-free. G+ enthousiasts even seem more numerous than the skeptics. And even them tend to develop their arguments more than the usal "G+ is a ghost town" / "G+ sucks" / "G+ is dead / "Is G+ still around?" / "What is G+?" from a few months back.
Plus-One This: Proof That Google Plus Will Prevail
Remember when Google Plus “flopped »? Well, it didn’t. In fact, it was, and still is, just part of Google’s plan–but everyone (including the media) has trouble seeing it as anything other than a swin…
A new year has started and once again we have to take decisions and choose from various paths: Will we climb up the stairs? Woke up an easy slope? Slide on a rail?
2012 was pretty full of changes personally (new appartment, new job… then end of new job, first car bought, etc) and there is no doubt 2013 will be twice as rich (more about that in a few weeks I suppose).
I reckon 2013 will be a mix of stairs, rails and easy slopes :).
