Here Are Google’s Cool New Photo Tricks
On Tuesday, Google Plus debuted 18 new photo sharing and organizing tools that add to the features the site introduced five months ago. Google doesn’t have to worry much about video — it owns the most popular video sharing site on the Internet, YouTube — but Facebook’s ownership of photo sharing site Instagram is one more reason why Facebook has proven to be so much more popular than Google Plus.
Some of the new editing features include the ability to turn multiple photos into a GIF, automatic touch-up, the ability to erase people from photos, and a movie feature that takes “highlights” from a set of photos or videos and adds effects, transitions, and even a soundtrack to create a short film of an event. Google has also added an option called Snapsneed that allows users to create high dynamic range imaging from multiple photos.
