Congrats to the awesome Snapseed team!
Perfect your photos in a snap with the new Snapseed

With billions of images being uploaded and shared on a daily basis, we want to make it fast and easy for people to perfect their photos. What once required a desktop computer, costly software and hours of editing work, can now be accomplished quickly in a powerful app --  +Snapseed  

The new #Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet. We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images. Here are the highlights:

New tools including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast, intelligent perspective Transform, and Spot Healing

Selectively apply filters and effects to parts of the image using the Brush tool

Non-destructive editing via Stacks allows you to re-edit or undo any change. You can also copy edits from one image to another

Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more.

Get it today as it rolls out on the Play Store and the App Store

Bringing your memories to life with Google+ Photos

Want to share some of your favorite memories of 2014? This week some Google+ users were gifted a personalized Year in Photos movie. It’s a chance to relive your past year in a short highlight video edited together and set to music. Check if you got your own at  

For those of you who didn't receive a video this year, it's not too late to get other fun Auto Awesomes from Google+ that you can share with your family and friends in time for the Holidays. The best way to get started is to ensure you upload your photos to Google+ and that you’re opted in to receiving new Auto Awesome creations (, such as animated GIFs, collages, movies and more. Google+ Photos will notify you of your newly created surprises. 

You can learn more about Photos and Auto Awesome here: 

Ready to get started? Here are some easy ways to upload your photos to Google+ Photos: 
● Enable Auto Backup on your device:
● Download and enable desktop uploader: 
● Upload manually via the photos page: 

In addition to making fun new things for you, your photos will also be safely stored and accessible from all your devices. 

Happy Holidays!

Congrats to my teammates on some great work!
Great looking videos just got easier

We're all taking more videos than ever before, thanks to our mobile devices, but some of them turn out less than stellar (yes, it happens to us all). But starting today, you can make your videos look and sound better with Google+. 

I'm excited to announce that now, with one click, you can enhance the lighting, color, stability, and (coming soon) speech in your videos. Here’s how it works:

- Use Auto Backup to securely store the videos you shoot.
- Google+ will automatically analyze picture and audio quality. For best results make sure you have Auto Enhance turned on.  Learn more here:
- When we think we can make improvements, desktop Web users will see a banner asking whether you’d like to preview enhancements.
- The preview will show an instant side-by-side comparison so you can choose to apply changes or stick with the original.

In addition to the videos that Google+ suggests enhancing, you can choose to apply Auto Enhance to any videos you’d like:

- In Google+ on Mac, Windows, and Chrome OS, open a video, then choose More->Auto Enhance.
- In the Google+ Photos app on Android, open a video, tap the overflow menu, and then tap Auto Enhance.

[11/3/2014 update: Now that Halloween is over this year, we've turned off the feature. Hope you've enjoyed making your photos spooky and fun!]

Hello ghosts and ghouls — Halloween is coming up and we can’t wait to get our costumes on and put up the cobwebs to prepare for tricks and treats. We’ve got something to help you celebrate with Google+ Photos. Here’s how to join in on the fun:

1) Simply go to
2) Choose your look from Spooky or Fun  
3) Pick a photo of yourself and up to four of your friends that you want to #Halloweenify… or simply pick any photo you’d like to transform with a Halloween theme. 

Want a different look? Try again or with another photo!

If you have an Android device, you can easily get a spooky or fun look by going to your photos view in the app and by clicking the star button in the top right corner. From there, follow the instructions and you’ll get your very own Halloween makeover. 

Share with your friends on Google+ or download the photo and share it anywhere. Or really get into the Halloween spirit and make it into your profile pic. 

Check out other examples at or get started at Currently only available in selected languages.

Happy Halloween!
