jbf: I tried to create an account and set it up yesterday. On the Photos page I saw no way to configure who I'm sharing photos with. I dug into the account settings and eventually found some options, but it was unclear what they did. I wanted to turn off auto enhancement and edit the photos myself. I couldn't figure out how to turn off auto enhancement or bring up a photo in an editor. If anyone can tell me how to do those three things (control sharing of photos and folders, turn off auto enhancement, edit photos in Google+), I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.
In account/google+ very bottom, you will also be able to turn on/off auto enhance and auto awesome etc.... as well as auto hashtags.
Hope this helps.
HeyAs far as photo sharing, uploading/creating an album/photo does not share it, unless you do so from the "share" box on the main front page. Once your album is created, you will have to press "share" on the album view. This will bring up a popup or integrated window at the bottom of which you can select the circles who will have access to your pictures.you can select or type - individual contact (from one to a whole bunch)- individual circles (set those up on the contacts page) - "My circles" Which circles this includes is customizable under Account/Google+/"Personalize your circles" My account is not in english so I'm doing my best to translate into what i think it says, but you might have to look around a bit for this one. There you will be able to select and deselect specific circles to be part of "My circles"- "Extended circles" Basically friends of friends, but also people who've added you and you have not added back I believe- Public, just about anybody
Great shot. Deserved better IMO
