Google’s Andrew Lee, a Software Engineer on the Google+ Photos team, today announced through his Google+ page that Google has added the ability to download complete albums. On an album page, click “More” and then “Download album” to get a .zip file containing the photos in the album. The feature further give you the ability like if you want to turn off the ability for people to download your photos, simply go to Google+ Settings (https://plus.google.com/settings/plus) and uncheck “Allow viewers to download my photos.”

Here’s what Andrew Lee, Software Engineer on the Google+ Photos team had to say about it:

Two of the most common requests we get are the ability to view photos in a slideshow, and to download complete albums.

Well… you can now view album photos as a slideshow! Just open a photo in the lightbox, hit the slideshow button, and sit back and enjoy the photos full-screen (Example: http://goo.gl/5aNNA).

Today we’re also adding the ability to download complete albums. On an album page, click “More” and then “Download album” to get a .zip file containing the photos in the album (Example: http://goo.gl/EvfFH).

As always: if you want to turn off the ability for people to download your photos, simply go to Google+ Settings (https://plus.google.com/settings/plus) and uncheck “Allow viewers to download my photos.”
