Google+ now lets you do serious photo editing
@Dpreview staff this must on the headlines.
Standard sliders are available for things like brightness, contrast, and saturation, as well highlight and midtone contrast controls. You can also make local adjustments with a control point interface that will be immediately familiar to anyone that’s used Snapseed or Nik’s other products like Viveza or Silver Efex Pro. Snapseed filters like Grunge and Drama are also available for you to play around with as well.
The new editing features have been ported to Google+’s iOS and Android apps as well,writes Google’s Josh Haftel. Because the new features rely on Google Native Client's support for native code, desktop Safari and IE users are out of luck, but getting these kinds of image editing tools in the browser for free is definitely worth the download. That said, you'll still have to decide if built-in Snapseed features are a compelling enough reason to store your photos on Google+. Haftel notes that the new features are rolling out slowly, so if you don’t see them right away, you’ll need to hang tight.
