What can you tell us about Google plus?  Do you recommen it?  A few students of mine do not like it.  They frequently send out Albums to share and find that the recipients have fewer options – downloading for one.  Because of their experience, I have never gone to Coogle plus. 

 

I believe you (or someone) showed a way to switch back from Google plus to the original web album interface.  I passed it on and they are more satisfied with this old version of Google Web Albums.

 

What are your recommendations for or against each of these versions?

I see no reason not to join Google Plus, it increases your photo storage to unlimited as long as you stay under 2048px (plenty big enough) and, when Picasa Web Albums is better – it’s still there, you just have to go to picasaweb.google.com manually.

Here’s the videos:
