It’s A Fact
The best way to find out the facts about a product, event or company is to check the official website first. When I first found out the Google+ was shutting down it was hard to believe. I received a Gmail from the official Google+ support blog. The official site to find out Google+ support is at support.google.com/plus/
Google+ provides a link to download all your content in the email. Because I have over 10K images on my account that file was huge so I decided to sort through and only save what I wanted. Besides, I always keep the original images on a DVD before sharing on social media platforms.
Important Steps In Video
Below are a few important screen grabs to help you find your images and download them.
- Sign into your Google+ account. To do so simply go to Gmail. Once You’ve signed into Gmail you will see your log in at the top right of the browser in a pull-down menu.
- Once You are signed into our Google+ you will be able to access your images by going to the URL: https://Plus.google.com/photos/ Below I show how you can highlight each image or album you want to download together.
- Very important to note the download button is in a pull down at the top right of the photo page once you are signed in. There is also the option to delete images if you should choose. I am not going to delete mine because I am still in denial that they are shutting down! LOL
Let me know if you have additional questions or concerns. I am happy to help you with this process as time allows.
