Earlier today, we told you Google Docs is now integrated into Google+ for all users, and now the social network is getting another update from the Google+ Photos team. A new album organizer is rolling out today that allows you to sort, reorder, move, copy, and batch-delete photos from within your Google+ account. You can access the new features by clicking “Organize album” from the Options menu of an album.

Go past the fold for the full breakdown from Google.

To get started, open one of your albums and select Organize album from the Options menu. With the album organizer you can:

Sort photos by time: Click Order by date to sort all photos in the album by the photo date, from earliest to latest. Click it again to sort them from latest to earliest.

Reorder your photos: Select the photos you want to reorder and drag them to their new position in the album. You can also move selected photos to the start or end of the album by clicking Move to top or Move to bottom.

Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album.

Delete a bunch of photos: Click Delete to delete the selected photos.

Once you are done, click Done organizing to return to your album view.

  1. I agree, I would love to be able to rearrange the album order.

    Thanks, A very useful information.

    Elwood, folks have been suggesting that for Picasa for several years, to no avail. There also seems to be no way in G+ photos to change the order the albums appear in. Changing the album order in Picasa (which is also very limited) is not reflected in G+.

  4. What's really needed is a tree structure to allow nesting of photo albums. The number of albums get way to large. A tree structure would allow some organization.
