This way you can choose an album, not just scroll through the All photos:

Go to the Google Photos app, tap on the Auto awesome stars icon and choose the Highlights. Then tap on the images you wish to include. You can click on the sideways arrow to open an album up, then just tap on the pics you want, finally tap Create and share.

Before sharing you can also add the .gif to an existing album or create a new one: Easier to find the .gif later.

Same works when you switch identity to a Page: You'll see the page's  Google+ images on your mobile device and can create the Motion .gif out of those.

An example here:

In October 2014 some of the best skateboarders from East and West connected to share their passion on the top of the world at Helsinki Airport.

Take a look behind the scenes and see how this one of a kind event was pulled together.

INBOX TO THE RESCUE, THIS TIME FOR REALS!

"When I received my Inbox invite about a month ago, I was excited but very cautious. Remember Google Wave and Google Plus? Those two products had tons of hype and pretty much turned out to be meh at best.  (WHAT? not the PLUS! - JN)
 The reports of Googlers hating the new design of Inbox really made me a little nervous.

Seeing that screen pictured below, the way Google’s new Inbox represents a clean / inbox zero, makes me feel very, very happy.

In the past four plus weeks since using Inbox I see that screen pretty much all the time..."

What utter crap, +Fox News !

Hahhhhaaaaaa!  oh my...  Does someone actually believe / watch these idiots?

A snippet:

"In the wake of international ridicule levied against the ill-reputed network, Fox issued a rare public apology last week for its inaccurate depictions of purported Islamist-controlled communities in Europe.

In one broadcast, self-declared radical Islam expert Nolan Peterson compared areas in Paris to war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. He claimed that many parts of Paris are under Shariah law where French police will not enter."

What about this then:

“In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones,” Emerson said. “There are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.”

- Anyone from Birmingham or Paris? 
Le sigh.

“This Guy’s Clearly a Complete Idiot”: How Fox News Became a Joke in Paris

The news channel has been roasted for its erroneous depiction of Muslim-linked no-go zones.

What if it took you less than five minutes and no accountants to get your taxes done?
Or how about voting in parliament elections online, while on a trip to Fiji?
Would you like to set up a new company and have it legal and running within 20 minutes?

What about signing business contracts or official documents digitally, without leaving your office – or living room? What if you never had any checkbooks from your bank or parking meters on the streets?

To me this sounds very strange: Why women coders get a different treatment than men?

From +Lea Coligado (hope she's the right Lea!)

"The summer after freshman year I interned at Facebook developing an iOS app and when it was back to school, all my classmates and I would exchange stories from our summers.

I remember a boy (let’s call him Rush like Rush Limbaugh) asking my guy friend who also worked at Facebook about his summer, and when he heard about it his mouth dropped. “Wow! Facebook! You must be really smart!”

He then turned to me and asked the same question: what did you do last summer? Except when I responded the same—“Facebook”—I got a completely different response: “Oh… well then I should have applied for that internship.”

I was floored..."

China is really pushing the 3D forwards...

I wonder, how is the insulation?
- Finland -25°C
or -12F at the moment.

In China, 3D-printed mansions and apartment blocks are now a reality

Now Guy has teamed up with Peg Fitzpatrick, who he says is the best social-media person he’s ever met, to offer The Art of Social Media—the one essential guide you need to get the most bang for your time, effort, and money.
