Google has announced a new AI powered feature called Magic Editor for Google Photos that will allow users to edit their photos with advanced tools and effects, using simple gestures and AI-powered suggestions. Magic Editor will be available on Pixel and IO devices later this year and aims to make photo editing more accessible and fun for everyone.
Photo Editing With Simple Swipe Gestures
According to Google, Magic Editor will let users adjust various aspects of their photos, such as brightness, contrast, saturation, color temperature, sharpness, and more, by simply swiping up or down on the screen. The editor will also offer smart suggestions based on the content and context of the photo, such as enhancing the sky, removing unwanted objects, or applying filters.
Magic Editor will also include a range of creative effects that users can apply to their photos, such as bokeh, motion blur, light leaks, and glitch art. Users can preview and adjust the intensity of these effects by swiping left or right on the screen. Additionally, users can combine multiple effects to create unique and artistic photos.
Powered by Advanced Machine Learning and Computer Vision
Google says that Magic Editor is powered by its advanced machine learning and computer vision technologies, which can analyze and understand photos and provide relevant and personalized suggestions. The magic editor will also learn from the user's preferences and behavior over time and offer more tailored and intuitive editing options.
Magic Editor is part of Google's vision to make Google Photos more than just a photo storage and sharing app but also a platform for creativity and expression. Google Photos already offers features such as automatic albums, collages, animations, movies, and memories, which help users relive and share their moments. With the magic editor, Google hopes to give users more control and freedom to transform their photos into stunning artworks.
Magic Editor will be rolling out to Pixel and IO devices in the coming months and will be compatible with photos taken with any camera app. Google says that it plans to bring Magic Editor to other devices and platforms in the future.
