Google's broken its Photos app away from Google+ and into its own application. And this is it. The broad strokes are that you get a powerful gallery app for your photos that allows for automatically uploading your pics to the cloud — for free, so long as you don't mind limiting your photos to 16MP. But perhaps most impressive is Photos' ability to organize and categorize your pictures. By people (via face recognition), by things, by dates and places.

And all the features you've come to know and love — Auto Awesome, for example — are there, but they may well have new names. There's a lot to love in Photos, and a lot to learn as well.

So, let's explore.
