Inspiring Creativity on G+ with #Thatsaplus

Many photographers on Google+ use weekly words or phrases to come up with a photography theme for the week. This year, Create member +Andreas Bartels created an Android app that comes up with a theme for you!

He says he created it "to act as inspiration for my (and hopefully others) photography, based on my G+ experience with photo themes and with the help of some great people I met on G+. I've also used this app myself for the better part of the year already."

Check out the app on Andreas' post below, and get inspired!

Google Play Early Access

If you have an Android app close to its release, you should definitely consider nominating it for the Early Access section on +Google Play (see last link in the article I'm sharing).

I just did with one of my apps a while ago, and not only was this app in fact added to the "Early Access" section available directly from the Apps main page (search for the one called Phoebus), it led to several hundred installs in just the last few days, some amount of valuable beta feedback - and even additional installs of my other apps available on Google Play.

BTW, this app of mine (http://phoebus.bocops.de) is one for photographers and especially "photo project/challenge" followers. I created it based on my experience with photo themes here on G+, and with the help of some people I've met here - so, #ThatsAPlus in more than just one way! :)___Inspiring Creativity on G+ with #Thatsaplus

Your awesome photos, now in more awesome places.

Beautiful photos for your computer and phone

From striking skylines to captivating vistas, talented photographers share beautiful, eye catching work on Google+ every day. To bring these photos to a wider audience, we’ve long showcased a selection of them on TVs and monitors around the world via Google Fiber and millions of Chromecast devices.

Now, we’re pleased to be able to make these beautiful photos by our members even more accessible by bringing them to your computers and phones. With our new Featured Photos screensaver for Mac (https://goo.gl/C791p4), you can display stunning, high-resolution photography from our Google+ members whenever your computer is inactive. If you have an Android device, you can use the Wallpapers app (https://goo.gl/hO1eLV) to display these same photos as background images on your home or lock screen. The photos are attributed to their photographers so it’s easy to find and follow the ones you like on Google+.

If you enjoy taking photos and would like to have yours considered, all you have to do is share them publicly on Google+ (if you don’t want to be considered, you can turn this option off in your Google+ settings). If you’re an avid photographer and want to increase your chance of being considered, we encourage you to join the Google+ Create program (https://goo.gl/nNBAZg). It’s a great opportunity to showcase your work globally.

#ThatsAPlus: +nomad dimitri seeks to steer social media culture towards positive models for social change.

Social media for social change

2016 was the year I decided to post videos on Google+ in order to find a way for ordinary people to share their stories using just the technology in their pocket.

My challenge was to do it democratically: with only a smartphone (that everyone has) and no further technical skills: no studio, no editing, no second takes, no preparation. If I could do it, anyone could do it.

The ultimate motivation is to stir social media culture towards positive models for social change. Example: can a video of 4 high school girls fighting family abuse ever become popular?

It has been a humbling experience but a fun challenge that I would never have attempted outside G+.

"I always find it very difficult to pick a favorite creation so here is one of my favorite images from this year (pictured below). The sunrise that morning at Niagra Falls was so beautiful and I love the soft colors of this image. Watching the sky change from darkness to brilliance is a privilege every time."

As +annarita ruberto illustrates below, a crucial step on our quest to create a better Earth starts with nurturing and challenging the minds of our children.

We also suggest checking out Annarita's great Collection on planet Earth and environmental science: https://plus.google.com/collection/Qg93f

Creativity in Education

As a teacher I try to stimulate in every way the creativity of my students because this is an excellent tool for promoting learning and, at the same time, for making grow the personality of young persons.
Sometimes they aren't aware of their own abilities, therefore "nurturing" their creativity has also a basic purpose, namely "orienting" them towards their own talents, little or big that these can be.

I share a glimpse related to a class activity, just as an example.

Water,  Sun and plant cells are essential for life: a 11- year- old schoolgirl has no doubt.

The image below is a drawing from  my 11- year- old schoolgirl Camilla
She presented it in a class discussion, in which students had to indicate, trough a drawing, what they think is more important for life on our planet.
Camilla drew a simplified shape of plant cell, stating that in her opinion it's essential for life because, thanks to photosynthesis, it produces glucose and oxygen.

The Food Chain - she said- begins with this microscopic organic brick. The oxygen is essential for breathing of living beings, who use it in the mitochondria of their cells for the cellular respiration and to produce the energy necessary for cell life.
Water is essential because the tissues of living beings contain a lot of water.
The Sun is fundamental because it gives us energy and  activates photosynthesis. Water is also essential for photosynthesis.

We humans should protect the plants and not waste water. We should make better use of the Sun energy because it's an inexhaustible and non-polluting source.

At simplified level, I would say that the Camilla's speech is flawless.

You Asked, We Listened: You can now drag & drop photos for easy posting on Google+.

Note: This feature is still rolling out to all users. Don't worry if you don't see it yet. You will soon!

Create Google+ posts via drag & drop

I'm delighted to say that by very popular demand, Google+ has added several new ways to start posts & add photos:

● Drag photo(s) into any stream to which you can post in order to start a new post with the photos attached
● Drag photo(s) into a post box to attach them
● Drag photo(s) into the image picker (inside of a post box) to attach them
● Drag a photo (singular) onto a comment to attach it to the comment

Give it a try & please let us know what you think.

Thanks,
J.

PS—I started this message by dragging in the attached animation. #WeMustGoDeeper!___You Asked, We Listened: You can now drag & drop photos for easy posting on Google+.

Posting in a Community is now easier than ever

Communities are made for sharing, but newcomers don’t always see that round green button in the bottom right corner. So today we’re introducing the easy sharing box at the top of the Community page on web.

Of course, you can still start your post with the pencil button if that’s what you’re used to. Either way, expect to see a few new members joining the conversation in a Community near you.___We've added a new and even easier way to post and share in your favorite Communities, details below!

In the first post of our #ThatsAPlus series, +Greg Kerr connects with complete strangers to spread a message of positivity and love. Considering the current social climate, we believe this Collection promotes an important message that we should all embrace.

Great work, Greg!

At the beginning of this year I set myself a goal of taking every image from past and Current Chrysta Rae scavenger hunts and while that goal is rapidly slipping away one theme in particular struck a chord with me. The theme is " Strangers with heart ". My interpretation of this word was to take a photo of a stranger (could be anyone anywhere) holding a painted heart that I carry in my camera bag. I took the first image of Barbara who was in Melbourne's botanic gardens. I enjoyed the process so much that I took four other pictures on that day. My favourite is the cover picture. I have used it as a method to bring me out of my shell and not be afraid of walking up to people asking to take their photo. My experience is that very few people say no. Some are even happy to have a copy of any photos forwarded to them.

Let's Celebrate Diwali #Diwali2016
Create India Program

Diwali is India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival is known as “Festival of Lights” as people in India decorate their homes with candles, diyas and lights.

On Diwali night, people dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja (prayers) typically to Lakshmi – the goddess of fertility and prosperity.

Why do people celebrate Diwali?
According to the epic ‘Ramayana’, it was the new moon day of Kartik when Lord Ram, Ma Sita and Lakshman returned to Ayodhya after vanquishing Ravana and conquering Lanka. The citizens of Ayodhya decorated the entire city with the earthen lamps and illuminated itlike never ... more »

3. Halloween First Became Popular in the Southeast U.S. & it Wasn’t Widespread Until the Wave of Scottish & Irish Immigrants Arrived in the 19th Century
4. All Hallows Eve Was Popularized as ‘Halloween’ Thanks to a Poem by Robert Burns in 1785
