Google Continues to Develop Snapseed

December 7, 2012 by News, Photography

Back in September Michael reported that Google had acquired Nik software with the assertion that Google has plans for online photo editing. It looks like he might be right.

Google today dropped the price of Snapseed, making the app free to download. Previously, the iOS version of Snapseed cost $4.99. The update also brings new filters, Google+ integration, and a new icon.

Interesting news when you consider that Instagram dropped a key Twitter feature this week.

The upside to all this bitchy posturing between the social networks is the abundance of free apps and avenues to express yourself photographically. The downside; who the hell except teenagers has time to keep up with all this stuff.

Personally, after Facebook/Instagram’s move, I’m keeping my eye on Google and Snapseed.

Why, hello there.

This is PhotoCine News. The definitive blog about the collision between filmmaking and photography. It was started in 2010 by Michael Britt and Lou Lesko the same people who created the PhotoCine Expo.

PCN had a fantastic run for about three and half years. Now it remains as an archive for the internet though the generosity of BlinkBid Software. The industry standard software for bidding, producing, and invoicing photography and motion gigs.

Have a fabulous day.
