Google Photos updated with advanced editing tools, new looks
Aside from the PhotoScan app that Google launched earlier today on Android and iOS, the Photos app received some nice new features on both platforms. Most of them will help users polish their captured pictures even further thanks to a new set of editing tools that Google added.
For example, the new advanced editing controls for Light and Color will now enable users to fine tune their photos, including shadows, warmth, and highlights. Also, with Deep Blue there's a good chance that you will be able to polish images of sea and sky where the blue color is predominant.
The update also brings new looks. There are no less than 12 new looks that should make edits based on the individual photos and its brightness, darkness, warmth, or saturation, before applying the style.
The last major new feature introduced in the latest update is improved auto enhance. You can now open a photo, tap the pencil icon to start editing, and select Auto.
As soon as you use the new feature, you should see enhancements that usually are only possible with pro editor apps, such as balancing exposure and saturation.
The new version of Photos will be rolled out beginning today to Android and iOS device, but it might not be available to everyone at the same time.
