Google announced improved editor UI for its Google Photos during the new Pixel phones launch event held on September 30, 2020. The new tools have been added to let you enhance your pictures.
There is now a new tab called Suggestions that uses machine learning to suggest you edits according to the pictures you are editing. In just one tap, the Suggestions tab intelligently applies features like brightness, contrast, and portrait effects. Also, tools like Enhance and Color Pop can further add vibrancy to your photos. Google says that in the coming months, it will add more suggestions to Pixel devices to help users with portraits, landscapes, sunsets, and more.
You can also see what edits Google Photos applied with the help of Suggestions. The tab can show the specific edits to you that changed your photos. And, of course, you can always customize further with your favorite granular edits, like brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth, and more. Thanks to the editor’s new layout you can quickly scroll through all the options and discover new ones.
Google also announced that a new editing feature is coming to Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 4 5 that uses machine learning to improve the lighting on faces in portraits.
The new Google Photos editor is rolling out to the Android app for everyone.
The reverse engineering expert @wongmjane, first reported this feature while digging into the codes of the app's version. She first discovered that Google could soon bring new editor UI and now we are seeing it coming finally.
