Resize/Scale/Zoom Image or Photo Dimensions in Browser

    📂 Google     # ,     🗨 No Comments

I don’t recall if Picasa, the predecessor to Google Photos, had a way to shrink or enlarge photos, but Google Photos doesn’t have this feature. By shrink or enlarge I don’t mean changing the file size, I mean actually changing the dimensions of the entire photo, as in its height and width. For example, changing — Continue reading »

Even in the face of Chinese retaliation, Google has gone public with the revelation that the hacking activity of Gmail accounts had a Chinese connection. The allegations are as of yet uncorroborated, but Google deserves much credit for standing up to China when there's evidence of wrong-doing. We'll see how far Google is willing to go on — Continue reading »
