Scrapbooking with Google+
Are you a scrapbooking addict, but behind on getting your photos downloaded?
Or, perhaps you’d like to see your photos and movies blended so you can more easily enjoy and share them?
Well, you’ve come to the right place!
We just learned about a new offering that we thought the scrapbookers (and those intimidated by the thought of scrapping!) might find interesting.
Google just announced that they’re getting into the scrapbooking biz.
Yes, you heard right – Google’s gonna help us get our memories documented!
Their new offering, Google+ Stories, can “…automatically weave your photos, videos and the places you visited into a beautiful travelogue,” according to Anil Sabharwal, Director of Product Management.
Wow, automatically, really?
That’s what they’re saying, and after doing a little research, it looks like it might be a great option for those of us who have a hard time getting our photos and videos off our mobile devices and into a format in which they can be easily shared.
Google+ Stories will be available on Android and the web this week, and soon on iOS.
More interested in documenting events?
Google+ Movies is now available (on Android, iOS and the web) to “…produce a highlight reel of your photos and videos automatically—including effects, transitions and a soundtrack,” said Anil.
So, how do you take advantage of these FREE tools?
*Be sure to take note of the image back-up details and limits on FREE Google Drive storage.
What’s the catch?
You’ll need to grab the Google+ app at Google Play – that’s it!
To read the announcement on the Google+ blog and to see examples of what finished Stories and Movies look like, check out the Google+ blog announcement.
So, what do YOU think of this new offering – thumbs up or thumbs down?
We’re interested in your thoughts and hope you’ll share this post with your friends and family – yes, even the non-scrappers! – we’d like to know what they think too!
