google photos editing toolsGoogle Photos as a standalone app was a pretty clever move on Google’s part. The fact that it allows unlimited storage for uncompressed photos also makes it an excellent cloud storage alternative for those who don’t mind lower resolution photos (16MP and below) as long as they don’t have to pay for the storage.

That being said, if the idea of editing photos on your phone doesn’t appeal to you and you’d prefer using your computer, you will be pleased to learn that Google has recently announced new editing tools designed for the web version of Google Photos, which to be honest seems a bit odd to have been left out at the launch of the platform.

According to Google, “Faster editing and cropping on the web. You take a lot of photos. Editing all of them can be time consuming. To speed things up, you can now navigate between photos while staying in editing mode. Your edits will automatically save, and undoing them is simple – just click ‘Revert to Original’.”

In addition, Google has also announced that they will be introducing a new aspect ratio selector where users get to choose an exact crop ratio, like 16:9, 4:3, square, original, or free. The updates should be live so head on over to Google Photos’ website to check it out.
