Auto Awesome is (you want me to say awesome, don't you?)

One of the great built-in features of Google+, and why I'm doing most of my real blogging over there these days, is the Auto Awesome feature, whereby the GOOG takes your pictures and edits them for you in to what it calls and Auto Awesome. Most of them are pictures that get some kind of filter treatment, but Google+ also can take images that overlap and turn them into a panorama, or can take burst mode shots and stitched them into an animated GIF style "moving picture." The bonus here is that Google+ can automatically upload pictures from your camera roll (well, it could, at least until iOS 8 came along) and does this all without you asking. It's very cool. Here are some examples.
