There are several ways that you can organize your photos with Google +.

  • Albums
  • Tags
  • Date
  • Face Recognition
  • Location

Create albums for your photos to group photos that are similar or part of a project. Name your albums something that makes sense to you so you can quickly scan for groups of pictures.

Tags are keywords that you attach to a photo. Tags are great to use when photos could be in more than one album. For instance the family vacation to Disney World photos would be contained in one album. Tags could be added to the photos in that album to identify people, places or objects. Photos can have more than one tag making them visible in several categories. Searching through large amounts of photos becomes an easy task when tags are used.

Google + offers a face recognition feature to organize people in photos. Some people feel that face recognition is an invasion of privacy so consider if it is something that you want to turn on or leave off.

Most cameras and smart devices automatically add dates to photos. Google + allows you to organize your photos by date.

Smart devices have a geo location setting that can be turned on and off. When turned on photos are tagged with the location that they were taken.

Nice tutorial Sharon! I need to check this out. I haven't really started using Google+ because i couldn't figure out how it fits in with Facebook, Twitter, etc. I use SugarSync on my phone currently to back up pictures I take. But I'm going to try switching that over to use the Google+ app, and then organize all my photos as you've described here. Thank you!

Well now, this is a bit embarrassing.... I already had Google+ installed on my phone, and just had to enable auto-backup for photos & videos. LOL! Backing up now, then I'll go and see how I can organize them online. Thanks again for the "kick in the rear" I needed Sharon!

Glad that you found this useful. Google has so many awesome tools available. When I backed up my phone it took several hours because I had so many of them. When my phone would shut off the process stopped so I had to increase my settings to never turn off until all of the photos were backed up.
