Google has been working quite hard on Google+, though it has not yet been able to reach the level Facebook or even Twitter has, their social platform does have a considerable user base. It is quite evident that the company wants it to play a pivotal role among all of its services, so naturally Google rolls out a few tweaks every couple of months to enhance and upgrade the user experience. The latest tweak brings full size photo uploads to Google+. Previously, users were not able to post pictures that were wider than 2048 pixels, that limited has now been removed.
A checkbox can be found in the settings menu from where this feature can be enabled, this has to be done otherwise the 2048 pixel limit would still be in place. Do keep in mind that photos that are over this limit will take up space from the 5GB of free storage that Google+ offers to all users. Photo storage below the 2048 pixel limit will not count towards the 5GB free storage. How often do you use Google+ and do you see yourself making use of this new allowance?
