For my friends and family who go on trips together all the time and need a place to upload photos afterwards, Google Photos is the go-to solution. I would love to replace it with Proton Photos.
There are a few things which keep Google Photos sticky IMO:
- We assume everybody in the group already has a Google account so uploads are frictionless
- We like to get together after the trip and view the slideshow on a large TV together and Google Photos has a really nice interface for going through an album with several hundred photos
- Sharing, commenting, and liking of specific photos within an album
The biggest challenge to Proton Photos adoption by groups of families and friends is the requirement that people need Proton accounts to upload the photos in the first place. People I'm trying to convert don't want to go through the process of signing up when they already have an inbox (Google) they are happy with. If Proton can provide a low-commitment, pleasing user experience to non-registered users, these people are much more likely to create an account in the future.
From a cryptographic standpoint, can we think of clever ways for Proton Photos to be engaging to people without Proton accounts? The ability to preview password-protected albums before downloading is one great example of this and it was announced as an upcoming feature on /r/protondrive last week.
This happened to me too. It's tricky because .ics files can contain either a single event or an entire calendar of events, so Proton Calendar needs to be able to handle both cases. In the case of a single event, I prefer for it to be added to an existing Calendar I have in Proton Calendar. In the case of multiple events, I prefer to specify whether I want to merge to an existing Calendar or import as a separate Calendar.
Also, just a side note, but I cannot add participants to events that I import through .ics. If I want to do that I have to duplicate the event and delete the one I imported... and I have to do this for each event in the .ics file.
