Google+ is moving up as it is giving its users access to a set of web-based photo editing tools powered by Snapseed. This move comes probably a bit late but seems most certainly caused by the purchase of Instagram by Facebook of couple of months ago.
The tools include some handy sliders for adjusting specific elements and features to let you tweak only selected parts of an image. The only catch is, that as everything google does, it seems limited to a google environment i.e. you have to use Chrome, Android, or iOS to access the photos you want to edit
Venture Beat reports that the updates will roll out gradually over the coming weeks.
Now that Google+ made its move, we should soon hear more for the reasons facebook took over instagram… should we expect photo editing on facebook soon?
