I was trying to upload photos through my Google+ but couldn't do it. I have a slow bandwidth and the g+ animation (and downloading of the photos) is just too much.
For example, if I want to upload a photo into an existing album (which already has 50 photos) then it would load and show those 50 photos before it let me upload into the album. My way of avoiding this is to use picasaweb.google.com directly instead of using g+.
Animation is nice, but too much animation is boring and annoying. No need to do that. Keep it simple, will you Google.
