If you never downloaded the free Snapseed app for OS X before Google axed it, then you have a second chance – as long as you;re using Google’s Chrome browser anyway. Google+ added a browser-based version of Snapseed to its flailing social network.
Make no mistake – this is literally Snapseed in the browser, complete with Nik’s u-point tech for selective adjustments, the fantastic Drama tool, the light-leaking Retrolux filter and all the rest. And as such, it might just be the best online editing tool around. Even on my several-years old iMac it’s fast. Faster than the native app in fact, and it also has the advantage of having the latest features (the Snapseed OS X app doesn’t have Retrolux or selective adjust, for example). In fact, I’d say it’s actually way better than native the app ever was.
Go check it out. You get the new features by opening up a photo in Google+ and hitting the Edit button.
