The new Snapseed is here!

Really proud of the team for this launch. Many of these tools used to be available only on desktop software like Photoshop or Lightroom. Now, you can do it all on your phone... for FREE!
 
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 http://goo.gl/sQSfLM and the App Store http://goo.gl/irPbd4

Pummeled

These may look like ocean waves, but they're actually waves on a lake! According to Wikipedia, there are several factors that determine the size of a wave:
• The distance over which the wind blows
• Width of area affected by wind
• Water depth
• Wind speed
• Time over which the wind has blown

A lake is severely disadvantaged compared to an ocean on the first 3 factors because an ocean is thousands of miles long and several miles deep. That means that the last two factors - wind speed and duration - are MUCH greater here in Torres del Paine in order to produce these huge waves!

+Aravind Krishnaswamy, +Zalman Stern, and I had a great time photographing the mountains, waves, and clouds here while the rest of our group took a (very wet) boat ride to see the glaciers at the end of the lake. You can see a couple chunks of ice on the right side of this photo.

Windswept

The trees, grass, and clouds all agree on one thing: the direction of the wind. The wind at Torres del Paine is so strong that the lakes here make waves that crash on shore like ocean waves do in other parts of the world. Cloud formations would hold a pose for us to snap a couple shots before the wind blew them away. In this scene, you can see that the trees, grass, and clouds are all bent in the direction of the wind.

+Aravind Krishnaswamy+Zalman Stern, and I came here on our first evening in Torres del Paine National Park to scout sunrise locations for the next morning. The location we ended up shooting the next morning was the one in this photo: https://plus.google.com/+VincentMo/posts/7STc1xmvEf3

Peruvian humor

Found in a restaurant in Punta Arenas, Chile with +Aravind Krishnaswamy and +Zalman Stern. The food was awesome, too. Probably the best we've had on the whole trip.

This article gets at the heart of what we're trying to do with the new Google Photos. I disagree on the part about Google+'s failure, but that's a separate topic. :)

The new Google Photos!

Today, we're launching a brand new Photos app on Android, iOS, and Web! It's faster, more beautiful, and smarter than ever.

This is the first Photos app that can free you from the tedium of organizing every photo - it has search that you can actually depend on! Want to relive that vacation with your family? Search for "sunset". Can't remember the name of that beer you had while on vacation? Search for "beer in Los Angeles". Ya, it actually works. :)

Photos will be rolling out through the day. Go check it out!

A Google approach to Photos

At my daughter's preschool graduation not too long ago, my wife and I naturally wanted to capture the moment. So together we took a little over 550 photos and videos! And then promptly ran out of time to do anything with the photos we took. I think we can all sympathize with this; expecting all those photos and videos to make reliving the moments that matter easier, only to find out that the sheer volume has made it harder. 

And that’s why I’m thrilled to introduce the new Google Photos. A home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so that you can share and save what matters.

Check out my blog post about how we’ve made it easier to relive a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos through the new Google Photos. http://goo.gl/TbBuZX

+Alvin Nguyen G+ albums are the same thing as Google Photos albums, so yes those will show up. Hangouts photos aren't visible in Google Photos, but you can find those photos by going to Hangouts.

Seriously, people. Some of the best security experts in the world are trying to tell you something. It might be worth paying attention. :) Especially the part about 2 factor authentication!
 
Special offer from Google today: run a 2-minute security check on your account (which is really a good idea anyway) and get a free 2GB of Drive storage space. If your Google account matters to you -- your GMail, YouTube, Google+, Drive, and so on -- this is something worth running every few months.

And after you do that, go enable 2-step verification. (https://www.google.com/landing/2step/) It's the single best thing you can do to protect your account from being compromised.

At first I hated the two-step. Now that everything is set up properly I think it's a great feature.

Dead trees, struggling flowers

Torres del Paine is full of black and white dead trees. They were burned by careless tourists in several fires over the years, and campfires are now banned in the park. Vegetation is beginning to grow back, but it will take centuries to get back to the way it used to be.

+Aravind Krishnaswamy, +Zalman Stern, and I walked through this grove of dead trees several times over our 3 days in the park. What drew me to this shot was the matching colors and textures in the flowers and tree.

Sunrise in Patagonia

What I like about this photo is the feeling of "home within nature". It's a beautiful but inhospitable landscape: the ice of the mountains, the sun's morning fire, the furious wind ripping across the lake. Yet in the middle of all this is a warm home. A lone person has almost made it across the fragile bridge, and maybe he'll have a cup of hot chocolate when he gets inside. :)

Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia was just voted 8th Wonder of the World on VirtualTourist, a Trip Advisor site. It was also featured on the cover of the National Geographic "The World's Most Beautiful Places" special issue. In other words, not a bad consolation prize for a canceled Antarctica trip with +Aravind Krishnaswamy and +Zalman Stern.

Awesome whisky collection and knowledgable bartenders, though don't expect all of the wait staff to know as much. Our bartender was willing to make substitutions on one of the whisky flights and was skilled enough to make a great recommendation which ended up being one of our favorites in the flight.

Nice little hole in the wall place with a family-like feeling. The BBQ chicken and BBQ ground beef are delicious. The BBQ chenjeh was not bad but was a bit lacking in flavor. The friendly owner came by occasionally and explained what we were supposed to do with the various sauces and food items. :)
