In response to Google+ user feedback Google has now added a new feature that enables Google+ users to be able to download full size photos. The new feature has been rolled out today and is found by when viewing a photo in the lightbox mode, under Actions down in the bottom righthand corner.
If you would prefer not to allow users to be able to download full size images of your photos, simply goto your Google+ settings and uncheck the “Allow viewers to download my photos” checkbox.
“We’ve been listening to your feedback and, as of today, you can download full size photos! When viewing a photo in the lightbox photo viewer, click Actions. If the photo owner has allowed downloads, you will now see an option to Download Photo.”
Its great to see that Google is listening to user feedback and working so quickly to implement it in the live Google+ site.
