Deleting A Hideous Photo
Six weeks ago I began my adventure into the exciting world of Google+. None of this technology comes naturally to me, so it’s been a slow crawl. My method is to push buttons and see what happens. It’s not the most efficient learning method, but so far it’s been working for me.
The first step to creating my Google profile was finding a suitable profile photo. Searching through recent photo files I found what I thought was an attractive likeness. How nice! I didn’t have to resort to using an old resume photo or something equally as dull.
Prior to uploading that photo I had’t given any thought about whether there was any way to take the photos down once I uploaded them to my profile. Within a matter of thirty minutes that changed! I’d found a better photo and went about replacing the original. OK, so far so good.
Now that I had the proper photo set as my profile image I’d like to delete that first photo. Hmmmm……How do I delete a pictures from my profile in Google Plus? I pushed every button I could see. I right-clicked and left-clicked, but nothing I tried offered me a ‘delete’ option. Soon I was frantic, and a bit pissed too. How dare Google create an album with no way to remove offending photos?! My blood began to boil as I thought about those photos ‘stuck’ in my profile pages.
It took several Google searches, over several weeks, before finding the answer. Beneath each photo there is the tiniest, itsy-bitsy ‘options’ button. That little button holds the key to removing the photo!
Frustrated by my failed search attempts , I hastily made this video answering the question,”How do I delete photos from my Google+ profile?”.
Thankfully Google is listening to our complaints, so they’re constantly making improvements to every area within the World o’Google. Lucky for us they have finally created a ‘Trash Can’ symbol directly on each profile image page. Yay! I’ve created this new and improved updated Google Hangout video to, #1) Explain where the trash can icon is now located, #2) It’s allowed me to practice using the Google Hangouts “Screen Share” option. In doing so, as with everything else in life, the more I do something the better I get at it. And the third benefit may be inspiring YOU to attempt recording your own public Google Hangout!
