New in Page Creator: Photo Editing and Mobile Sites

When you add a photo to Google Page Creator, you'll see new options. You can now crop a photo, rotate it, change the brightness, mix it with another photo, change the contrast, reduce the colors or sharpen the photo. Basically you can apply simple effects from your browser. In the screenshot below, I've used the mash-up effect.



Now every page created in Google Page Creator can be easily accessed from a mobile phone, as Google redirects it to the transcoded version, the same way it does with the search results. Of course if you manage to enter the long URL correctly.

  2. yeah nevermind, it's not done from the 'uploaded stuff' box, it's done from inside of a page.

  3. To do what?

    * for the photo features: create a page and add an image

    * for the mobile feature: visit the page on your mobile phone

  4. The photo thing has been there for ages, but it only works on photos you have uploaded, not on ones embedded from other pages.

  5. I'd rather have a function to easily manage you photo upload, instead of adding them one-by-one.

  8. ..is it bad that i'm still confused by this.. haha

    So, its actually within a page that you can edit it?
    I see now, i was expecting it to be on the actual Page Creator Home instead.
    I think it would be better in that area, even better if you can filter files by file type so you can edit images, or perhaps an image area altogether (yes, i know, Picasa Web.. but still! Wait...integrating those would have been easier)

    I'm just really happpy they managed to fix the extra sites thing, a whole 5 sites on one account, oh yeah!
