So what do we do now that Photoshop is a household word? Frankly, most people can't afford to buy Photoshop or don't want to pay the monthly charge to be on the Creative Cloud with Adobe. If you have a Gmail account, which is free, you can take advantage of Google Photos. It's web based and you can get a quick visual fix because it allows you do many tasks quickly.
Often people want some artistic flare to their photos but they also want the control. There are also many apps that do this but sometimes they don't give you the control. With your photos on this simple platform, you can crop, straighten, lighten, darken and add vignetting to name a few. The cropping even offers an option for a square photograph like the days of old. By clicking on the mouse and holding you can toggle back and forth to review before and after editing.
With Google Photos you get 16 megs free and it's available on all of your favorite devices so that you can always have access to them when need be. In 2015 it received critical acclaim. As with all browser based application, please do your homework to further understand all of the pros and cons.
Even though I am ready for warm weather, below is a sample of editing I did in Google Photos.
Enjoy! Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
