Google has added a new feature that I wish I had more time to play with -- Auto Awesome Photos and Movies:
Auto Awesome creates fun new versions of your photos and videos. Your photos will be combined into short animations, wide panoramas, or merged into group shots where everyone looks good. You'll know when an Auto Awesome photo or movie has been created by the icon.
Here is a basic picture I took last night:
And this is a link to the picture as displayed with the Auto Awesome feature (I don't know how to embed the gif so that it displays the twinkles within this blog).
Simple, but a nice twist. Me thinks I'm going to like this tool and the extensions it enables.
