How to Share Photos in Google Plus

Google owns Picasa photo sharing service, so it makes sense that Google Plus links directly to your Picasa account. As long as you have a valid Gmail.com address, you automatically get a free Picasa photo account. From there, you can easily post and share photos through Google Plus by using your Picasa.

How to Display a New Photo from Your Smartphone or Your Hard Drive


  1. Switch to your Google Plus Stream.
  2. Click the 'Add Photos' icon (which looks like a tiny camera)
  3. Choose 'Add Photos' to grab a single photo from your computer hard drive.
  4. Choose 'Create an Album' to grab multiple photos from your computer hard drive.
  5. Choose 'From Your Phone' to grab photos from your Android smartphone.
  6. (sorry, this upload feature only works from desktop computers and Android phones. If you have an iPhone, BlackBerry, or other cell phone, you will need to wait a few months for the upload feature)
