Whether you want to share family photos with distant relatives or make a shared pool of vacation or event photos with friends, it’s easy to create and share collaborative albums in Google Photos.
While there is no shortage of ways to share photos among your friends, Google Photos offers some pretty enticing reasons make it your photo sharing platform of choice. First off, there’s the simple ubiquity of Google accounts—practically everyone has one already and, if not, it’s free. Google Photos also offers features like unlimited photo storage, built-in social functions like commenting on albums and individual photos, facial and object recognition, a plethora of other features big and small.
In fact, we only have one real complaint to lodge about photo sharing through Google Photos. When you share an album, you can’t really limit who can see it. Google Photos creates a custom (and obfuscated) URL for each album and you share the album by sending people that URL. There’s no way to limit access to specific Google accounts. While the chances of someone guessing the long and obfuscated URL that points back to your shared album is minuscule, that doesn’t prevent the people with whom you share the URL from sharing it with others. We’d still prefer the additional security of login-restricted access. Hopefully, this is an issue that Google addresses in future updates to Google Photos.
That minor complaint aside, Google Photos makes it super easy to share your pictures. Let’s jump right into creating a new album and enabling the sharing features. We’ll be walking you through the features using the Google Photos for iOS app, but the functionality is pretty much the same in the Android app. You should also be able to follow along easily if you’re using the web-based Google Photos interface, since the menu entries are all the same.
To create your first shared album, fire up your Google Photos app and click the menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the search bar. In the menu, click “Shared” to access your shared album directory.Read More...
