I personally am not sure which transgression was worse the fact that Instagram took away my right to choose if I wanted to participate in allowing advertising companies to use my photos or that they were not willing to compensate me for the usage of my images. Either way they should have inserted an opt in- or opt out button somewhere.
So I took to the internet to find a solution to my photo sharing issues. I sought out an application that would allow me to share my food, latest pedicure, and cute dog faces without trying to sell my fabulous-ness.
After scowling the ends of the digital earth I happened upon the greatest google+ conversation ever. It is not new news that Google recently purchased Nik Software the developer of Snapseed. If comparing apples to apples then Google’s photo application Snapseed is the same as Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram.
So Snapseed is my new photo editing quick sharing application. For all you Instagram lovers Snapseed is FREE and ad free (for the moment) it has all kinds of filters and accessories to make your photo genius shine! The bonus to all of this is that unlike Instagram Snapseed’s functionality allows you to share with Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. So if you were lacking in your google activities now’s that chance to increase your influence, klout, peer index and whatever other analytic formulas are required to be on top! Oh don’t let me forget that with Snapseed you don’t have the social pressure of following and being followed. No ratios to worry about! Just sharing great moments in your journey.
The interface is very nice and the functions go beyond Instagrams 19 filters. Snapseed was designed for, pardon my usage of the word but “REAL” photographers as a great photo editing tool.
