Google Photos updated with new keyboard shortcuts and upload features

google photos keyboard shortcuts

The Google Photos web service has received an update today, and while it mightn’t be as big as the changes that the mobile apps receive, it’s still quite a useful update. Today we’ve got two new features — uploading direct to albums (including shared albums), and keyboard shortcuts for fast editing and moving things around.

Previously to add photos to an album, you had to upload the photos, then select the ones you wanted and add them to an album. This works, but it’s a pain if you’re uploading to a number of different albums and you don’t want things to get messed up. From today, that’s now solved.

The other improvement is the addition of keyboard shortcuts; these improve the navigation through the web interface, making it easier to move through photos and perform actions on them, such as editing or deleting.

The features are live now in the Google Photos web interface, so check them out.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
