After uploading all of my pictures from the summit to my Google Picasa page, I discovered that Google has a new feature called "Auto Awesome"

https://support.google.com/plus/answer/3113884?p=photos_auto_awesome&hl=en&rd=1

If you read the descriptions, it does some cool things like making automatic panoramic images, and combining "burst" shot images into motion gifs. There is not any control over these features, so sometimes the pictures are a little off.

Examples.
This looks Awesome! It took 3 pictures out of order to build this one.


These have some issues. See if you can spot the problems

(Hint, 2 Ty!s are better than one)

I'm sure Metal Tech would like this one. See any problems.



It also makes nice moving pictures..


But some are a bit pointless.



All of my Google Awesome Pictures can be found here. I'll add more if they auto generate some more..

nifty
Only for use with picasa though?
As fas as I an tell it part of the Picasa and Google+ online photo sharing.

I've been using Picasa on the desktop for years now, along with the online photo sharing. I've never been a big fan of he Google+ stuff, but its all about the social networking now. It just seemed easier to use the old picasa web albums vs the google+ albums, especially when you wanted to share a picture on a forum.

If you can setup your free Gmail account, then you can get the Picasa account for online picture sharing. Once you upload the pictures "Auto Awesome" just takes over. It would be nice to have some control over it, but it does a pretty good job on its own.

Curious, how many stills are used in the FJ water crossing and the FJ40 crossing? Just guessing it looks something like 3 and 10???? Trying to gauge how much "filler" Google is extrapolating to make the gifs
Here is a link to all the pics I took of discount tire. The motion gif is just like a flip book, just a series of pictures with a delay between them. Taking the pictures is more a feature of the camera.

I found yet another Auto Awesome picture...

I have to admit, the automated software really tries hard to get a good picture.

It's strange how this makes the process of turning pics into video so much easier than getting a pic from a video!
