Google Photos has been one of my favorite photo editing apps. Despite having some of the most amazing features you can work with, the developers continue to update it with more useful functionalities. Google Photos is moving ahead of the chasing pack with a new feature that lets you colorize your old black and white photos.
Alongside the upcoming feature that lets you colorize black and white pictures, Google also announced a couple of new improvements for the app. The ability to colorize old black and white pictures will be made possible by Google’s use of artificial intelligence.
How it works: simply take a picture of your black and white photo with the camera on your phone, and then Google Photos will do the analysis and produce a colorized version of it. The beauty of it is that everything is done automatically by the app; taking all the hard work off your shoulder.
Another upcoming feature that might just take the app to a new height is also being developed. According to The Verge, Google has announced that Google Photos will be able to separate subjects in photos or recognize images of documents and automatically convert same to PDF files.
No official release date has been announced yet, and as usual we will have to wait until the features become available in the Play Store.
A couple of weeks ago, Google Photos welcomed a few more exciting updates, including the ability to edit multiple clips. A white color scheme, which is the most notable change, has replaced the all-black background that has been a part of the app all this while.
Google also adjusted its interface so that the main video viewer is now sitting atop, and a stack of the selected tips can be easily noticed from beneath. You can easily notice how much of clip is included in the currently loaded video file in the stack. To adjust the slide, there is no need to open the clips in a new screen since this can be done directly from the main screen.
Other equally important changes worthy of note include, additional controls that allows you to move up or down clips on the timeline, muting the original audio, removing them from the timeline, replicating clips, and many more.
In terms of updates and features, Google Photos remains one of the most popular apps. With more than 500 million users, things are really looking up for the photo editing tool.
Last December, a new feature that allows the app to detect and group all your pet photos in one place, and alongside other photos.
Google Photos will sort out your photos based on algorithm. Perhaps, it brings an end to typing words like “dog” or “cat” when searching for pictures of your pet within the app.
Google Photos is available on iOS and Android, and ranks among the top free apps on major download stores.
