Windows 10 ‘Skip Ahead’ Insiders are in for another treat thanks to a Microsoft Photos update. Version 2017.39081.13910.0 is now available, and it adds 57 new effects.
Those effects are part of its new Story Remix feature, which lets users edit videos straight from the app. Microsoft Graph technology automatically combines content to create videos, significantly reducing workload.

For now, they’re quite cheesy, as you can see in this video by Aggiornamenti Lumia:
They are, however, incredibly easy to use, and we expect Microsoft to update it regularly. Either way, it’s already an improvement over Movie Maker and will be great for casual use.
Skip Ahead Insiders can try it for themselves via the Windows Store.
