This is such great news! According to the Google Apps Updates blog you will now be able to access your Google+ photos from Drive.
“They will appear in a new menu item called Google Photos, and can be shared, moved, and renamed like any other Drive file.”
For those of you that have your mobile devices set to automatically back up photos and video to Google+, this is awesome!
This should be available in your Gmail account now, and in your GAFE account soon.
