WP Media Folder today has a quite good vizualization of Google Photos, but it was far from what we expected when we bought according to marketing information on your web page.

We have the following improvemnt suggestions:
A. One should be able to see the file count from Google Photo Albums that are shown.
B. There should be a text saying the what you see from Google Photo is linked to album and not a copy (we first thought it was actually synced......which mislead us for a while...)
C. Copying files from Google Photos to a media folder can only be done manually but we read in marketing it was automatied. For a sync with Google Photos to be of value you need to add a feature that automatically add new photos from a specific Google Photos album to a media folder and keeps it in 1:1 sync always.
D. Copying files manually from Google Photos to a media folder using the tool more than ones create duplicates since tools give new file names. Default should be to overwrite existing files and leave files that are the same. This was VERY confusing and hard to understand.
E. In many cases users want to see the newest photos in an album first, so do we. Google Photos albums do have an option to show new images first. That setting also seems to affect how it shows in your in Wordpress. We belive there ought to be a way for your tool to actually store copied imaged so the sort order from Google Photos are kept when copied to a media folder. F.i. we do want current years acitvites shown on web page by default, not activities years ago.

For now we will have to stay with Photonic for our Google Photos integrations, but hope your tool will evolve since this is a need of many and not only us. Thanks.

These features are not implemented yet, but I'll add it to our feature request list and keep that in mind for a future release.

Thanks a lot!
