This is alarming, to say the least.
As someone who is neither a photo-editing amateur nor an expert, I have relished Google+ picture editing as a powerful, flexible image-manipulation suite that lets me do amazing things with little effort.
Google Photos, though capable and thoughtfully designed, does not come close to matching these features.
I realize that the mobile app Snapseed is at my disposal with features roughly matching those on Google+. But it is incomprehensible to me that comparable capabilities would not remain available everywhere.
Apple Photos is roughly the same across all of Apple's Mac and iOS devices, and looks to get a lot more capable and powerful with third-party editing plug-ins on the Mac.
Google+ photo editing blows Apple Photos editing out of the water, but with Google Photos the reverse is true.
As a result, I'm rethinking my longtime policy of relying on Google as my default photo-storage and photo-editing service.
This is a difficult thing for me to contemplate since I typically prefer Google services over comparable offerings, but I'm not seeing that I have any choice.
I'm seriously bummed out, guys.

I’ve had a lifelong fascination with technology, and I’ve been a journalist all my life — starting with my cute little articles for my grade-school newspaper, “La Flama,” in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
So, in a way, I’m one of the luckiest persons alive: I work as a technology journalist.
Today, I cover consumer technology for for TwinCities.com, a MediaNews Group and Digital First Media property, and its St. Paul Pioneer Press dead-tree counterpart.
I also write books on occasion.
My third, recently released book, The Mobile Writer, is aimed at those who want to be productive on mobile devices (such as iPads and Android tablets) but don’t know how to get started. The book is a tech-gear and how-to guide for those wanting to get real writing done on ultraportable computing gadgets, but confused about their many hardware and software options.

I make frequent appearances on local and national TV-news broadcasts, radio programs and technology podcasts. This blog has archived video or audio of most such media appearances.
I speak with some regularity about journalism, technology and social media (and how the three intersect). A number of such engagements are archived here in video or audio form.
I’m a nerd (in the sci-fi-fanatic and tech-enthusiast senses of the word). I love to merengue, make sushi and brew that perfect cup of café (watch me rave about my favorite coffeemaker).
A native of Quito, Ecuador, I spent most of my childhood in San Juan and wear the “boricua” badge with pride.
I live with my wife and son in St. Paul, Minn., where I sometimes grumble about the non-tropical climate but love to strap on a snowboard.
