If it ain’t broke

Amateur Photographer - - Your Letters -

There is a well-known Amer­i­can ex­pres­sion: ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ As an Amer­i­can com­pany and the orig­i­na­tors of Pi­casa I would have thought that Google would have been aware of this piece of wis­dom. I am in com­plete agree­ment with Stan­ley Groom ( In­box, AP 27 Oc­to­ber) and am sad­dened by its demise. As a sim­ple but ef­fec­tive image ed­i­tor it was with­out equal, of­fer­ing bright­ness, con­trast, sat­u­ra­tion, crop­ping and ro­ta­tion fa­cil­i­ties, all lost when you trans­fer to the new Google Pho­tos whose only ad­van­tage is a de­cent fil­ing sys­tem for your pho­tos. It would never have put Pho­to­shop out of busi­ness, but for those of us who just wish to ap­ply mi­nor cor­rec­tions it was per­fect. So why ter­mi­nate it? Com­pa­nies should look after their faith­ful clients. Mike Rig­nall
