Google+ Photos coming to Google Drive

It’s true. In June, you will be able to manage and store your Google+ photos and videos in one convenient location — Google Drive.

All photos and videos will appear automatically in Google Photos, a new Drive menu item (e.g., Recent, Shared with me, Uploads). You can also opt to add a Google Photos folder to “My Drive,” so you can manage these files and your other file types together.

If you delete a file in Google Drive, it will also be deleted from your Google+ account and vice versa. However, if you edit a photo in Google+, your changes will only appear in Google+. To get the new photo into your Google Drive, download it from Google+ and then upload it to Google Drive.

For more information, see View and manage photos and videos stored in your Google Drive.
