Google Photos, the company’s cloud photo storage app, is quite popular. However, Google is not likely to rest on its current achievements and allow its competitors like Amazon to gain the upper hand in this market. Therefore, Google Photos has recently received a new feature.
From now on, your photos can be easily improved thanks to the new automatic white balance feature released for Google Photos. The announcement of the feature came on Thursday and it’s gradually rolling out this week for Android and the web version of the app. iOS users will have to wait a bit more before the feature will go live on their platform.
The white balance fix for your photos is automatically applied when you select whatever filter you want. The app will correct the balance in that specific image, besides just adjusting the exposure and saturation of the photo. Furthermore, users will still be able to change things by selecting the “Color” tab, from where they can adjust the tint and warmth of their snapshots.
Every amateur photographer has noticed that every so often, depending on the lighting in the room as well as other conditions, the pictures can come out a bit too yellow or strangely blue-ish. This issue affected users in various degrees, but many were not willing to manually adjust it. Therefore, Google has decided to facilitate this task for their users by automatically render colors correctly with the new white balance feature in an attempt to give photos a more natural look.
Ever since the launch of Google Photos, a few years ago, the picture storage app became increasingly popular due to its great features, which allows users to easily keep track of all their photos through various filters. The most recently launched features, besides the auto white balance, includes smart albums, as well as tool dubbed PhotoScan, which allows users to easily digitize their old photos.
However, the main feature of Google Photos is the enhanced search engine, which relies on the company’s research in image recognition and machine learning. It allows users to keep track of their photos by date and time, the faces of specific people as well as through the objects found in each photo.
