Edit your Google+ photos with everything from simple tweaks to complete transformations
It seems that Google's acquisition of Snapseed is paying off again, as Google+ has just added a variety of photo editing tools based on its technology. The new tools can be found by viewing one of your photos in a lightbox and hitting the new "Edit" button above the image, where you'll then be given a sidebar with tons of new options. The tools are very clearly lifted directly from Snapseed (that isn't at all a bad thing), and give you options to tune and adjust, crop, rotate, add borders, selectively adjust, tilt-shift, apply several filters and more.
The tweaks go on and on, and can be mixed and matched as you see fit. When you're done editing an image you can choose to save it and have it replace the original, or you can always revert the changes if you're not happy with how things turned out.
The new editing tools are rolling out gradually to users now, so don't be surprised if you don't see it show up on your own account for a little while. If you're anxious to try them out, make sure you're using Chrome, as the advanced editing features are restricted to just Google's browser at the moment.
