UX Design Principle: Functional Consistency

The story:

  • Google Storage = Hard Disk
  • Google Photos = Folders
  • Albums = Subfolders

Dissecting the situation

  • Ubiquitous accessibility — I will be able to find and use the images everywhere (yes, I am aware that this is the meaning of ubiquitous, and that all of you already know this:) )
  • This time I’ll be organized with my images
  • I have so many images already on my GP account, that it is on the way to become disorganized much like my photos folder on my computer.
  • If I upload it to GP and only then move it to an Album, it will take me too long to locate the images.
Notice the blue ribbon that tell me I can just drop files into this page
Dragging to an Album
Notice the blue ribbon at the bottom of the page
Notice how the whole background changes and the Alt Text says ‘+Copy’ instead of ‘->Move’
Couldn’t you do that before?
