When viewing a Google+ album, click on "shared X" and you will get a lightbox where you can either directly enter email addresses of those without G+ accounts. They will get emails to view the album. Or you can use a direct link.
Just recently Google made it possible to do that through Google Drive.
Now in the Google Drive application, there is a folder named Google Photos, you can click on it and have your Google+ photos showing up also in Google Drive.
Then you can share this Google Drive folder like any other with your wife.
All the future photos you take and auto-backup on ...
Another possibility that comes to mind is to share a folder in Google Drive. Then both of you could turn on the Google+ Photos feature to display each such folder as an album. Then it's just a question of moving/copying your Auto-Backup'd photos to that album (folder).

Picasa Web is "going away" and is being replaced by Google+ Photos. (In fact, if you go to your Google+ photos and to Picasa Web, you'll see that your photos are all in "both" places.) Furthermore, I wouldn't expect to see too many more updates to the Picasa desktop application. Google doesn't want to be making desktop apps anymore.)
Further, since Gmail, ...
Yes, you are right. If you share a photo via link it would be visible for everyone who has the link.
You can share your photos with a specific person by following these steps:
From Share a photo album:
Open Google+. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu.
Click Photos icon Photos > More at the top of the page > Albums.
Once you posted it, you can’t add a new photo to a status update. The only moment when you can add more photos to a status update is between the time one or more photos are uploaded and the one you click Post (see picture below).
The only thing you can do is to delete the first pictures and re-upload them together with the fourth.
(FYI: the photos you ...
A Google+ album can have just one sharing setting at a time.
But you can choose and share only selected photos from that album, then the recipient can see only those images, not the whole album - as Google+ creates a new album for those shared photos. The rest stays private.
You can also move / copy those selected photos to a new album with wider sharing ...
According to Google Plus, pics that are automatically backed up, at a "standard" resolution (not full-size, but still quite good at 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes), are all unlimited.
"You can store an unlimited number of standard size photos on Google+." and "You can upload an unlimited number of videos that are less than 15 minutes long and ...
I heard a rumor about shared photo albums being developed in the future, but can't find where I saw that.
Staying in the Googleverse, the only thing I know of that will do something like this is Google+ Events. If you RSVP to an event and turn on the feature when the event comes up, then all the photos you take (until the end of the event) are uploaded to ...
I figured out that the most efficient way to solve this problem is to use the native photo album feature from facebook.
When creating an album you can select who can all see the pictures, pictures that are then tagged are automatically shared with friends, this is a much more efficient approach then using groups.
In addition to @Andrea Zonca's answer (which essentially helped my problem), some things I noticed (maybe less relevant to the topic but still things to consider when you decide the option to share pics on photos using drive):
While the status on photos seems to be reflected on drive immediately, the other way round may not hold; for insntance, when I ...
I did some further checking and found that the photo album is only visible to event attendees. However, the photos can be viewed if the event is made public and if people first visit the event via this public URL and then click through to the photos (the direct link to the photo album would still not be public).
OneDrive now lets you rotate photos, if you are the owner. In OneDrive, select one photo either by opening it to full screen or by ticking the box. The rotate option will now be viewable.
As an extra note, you must be the owner of the photo to get the rotate options. People who you share the photo with, even 'edit' access will not be able to rotate your ...
I'd also noticed the web page was down, so left a message on Michael's blog last night and he's fixed the DNS issue that was causing his SortMyPhotostream page to be unavailable.
If you try it again now hopefully you'll have access again. See last few comments on his blog post.
There is no easy way to reverse the order of photos already uploaded. However, there is a way to upload and have your newest photos on top. Instead of uploading from your "Name" page, which puts newest photos on the bottom, go to your Home page, click on Photos in the left hand column and then on Add Photos when the page opens. New photos are now added to ...
Actually, you can. You need to tag that friend on every picture (just tag the lower left or right corner of the photos). Then, when sharing the album, share it only to friends and there is a check box to share to friends of friends who are tagged.
I don't think Dropbox will let you do that. The Camera Uploads is also how they keep track of how much you have uploaded. They give more space to you the more you upload. If you could reset that counter then you could max out your space very quickly, something I am sure they have thought about.
I'm using the android app and I just go to the "Camera Uploads" folder and select "Upload here" from the menu.
You then get asked to select "Photos and videos" or "Other files". Select "Photos and videos".
Choose the photo you want to upload and select Upload.
If the file exists, it will ask if you want to replace the file.
