Screenshots of Google's new Photo app leak
Google is expected to introduce a new stand-alone photo app as soon as Google I/O, which starts on May 28th and ends the next day. A leak of the app was obtained by Android Police and reveals familiar features and new capabilities. The important thing is that Google is separating Photos from Google+.

Pictures can be backed up automatically and retrieved by day or month. Another option will show your pictures in a staggered grid similar to the Google+ photo albums. One of the new features is Assistant which creates movies, stories, animation and collages from your photos. It also stores photos allowing you to free up some memory. This replaces Auto Awesome which was limited to the creation of movies, GIFs and collages (using 2 to 9 pictures).

The Google Photos app will allow you to search for pictures based on specific objects, people and animals, like it currently does. Users will now be able to pinch and zoom to open a picture, and swipe to exit. Sharing a photo is as simple as sending a link via SMS or social media sites, to a custom album that will contain the pictures you want others to see. Photos shared this way can have their metadata removed. And when you are done sharing photos using that specific link, you can delete it.
