Google+ Photos updated with new download button, ability to move images between albums


Earlier today, Google rolled out several new plugins for Google+, and now the social network’s photo features have been enhanced. Google’s Jon Emerson announced on his Google+ page this afternoon that several new features are now available in Google+ Photos.

Emerson says the features are all based off of “user feedback” and will help make Google+ Photos even better.

  • A new “Move” option makes it easy to move photos between albums. Just pick a few photos in an album (or click the new “Select” link to select all of them) and choose where they go.
  • Easier photo downloads. Once you’ve selected photos, use the new “Download” option to save them to your computer.
  • Faster uploading for large sets of photos. We’ve made a few small changes that make adding photos from your desktop an even smoother process. 

Google+ has added a host of new photo features over the last few months that help make it a competitor to even dedicated photo-sharing sites such as Flickr, and it can only get better from here.
