Although some Google + may seem a "desert island" in which there is little movement, Google is slowly rolling out upgrades and new services. Yesterday, while providing the business pages to a custom url (or vanity url) with which to offer a "coordinate" more intelligible, the guys from Mountain View also deployed a couple of user-related news and photographs. Through your profile in Google + , Andrew Lee, team engineer Google Image +, was in charge of announcing that the image galleries included a slide show to view full-size photos (and automatically switching) and, moreover, also was enabled an option to download all the pictures in the album we visit.
Although a priori the two developments can be appreciated by the users, in my view, the ability to download full image gallery (compressed in a zip file) is something worthwhile to stop and analyze in greater depth.
This option is something that is activated by default to all users, that is, unless we indicate otherwise (configured in the options Google + unchecking the box "Allow other users to download my pictures"). Personally, I think it's important to keep this news because anyone who has access to one of our photo galleries could download it directly.
Here, precisely, is where one of the benefits of Google + since it enables the user through the circles, a great management information that is accessible to users who belong to our circle. At all times the user has control over the visibility of the various galleries of images published and, therefore, decide which users can access them (relying on the good use they give to the images that have access) .
While it is true that before this functionality, anyone could download the images (one by one from the browser), this option makes the task too, and in some cases it may be important to some means of preserving the authorship of our images and limit, something more, the group can access them.
In short, if we do not want to download our photos is something "so simple", we can disable this feature from the options panel of Google +. If you do not want to disable it, then we should take a moment to review the circles that have access to our image galleries and make adjustments as we deem necessary.
In addition, Google + is not the only service that we can share a "lot of pictures," so if you disable this option we can always resort to alternatives such as, for example, Dropbox .
