New Contextual Suggestions Tab
The updated design introduces a suggestions tab that appears first, offering options such as Enhance, Warm, and Cool. For Google One subscribers, additional features like Portrait light, Blur, Sky, Color, and HDR have been made available.
Enhanced Aspect Ratio Features
The Aspect Ratio feature has received notable changes. Users no longer need to access a fullscreen crop tool directly. Instead, they can choose from various presets including Free, Original, Square, and several others. These presets are more straightforward to access compared to the earlier dropdown menu. Additionally, users can drag to adjust the aspect ratio, and rotation controls have been positioned at the bottom of the interface.
Adjustments and Filters Update
The Adjust feature now displays all sliders immediately, eliminating the need to group them under categories like Light, Color, and Pop. Each slider is paired with an icon, consistent with the Android/iOS app design. The Filters tab, which was previously the primary tab, has now been moved to the end.
Many users have reported seeing a blue “Try the new editor” prompt when opening an image, indicating the widespread rollout of this redesign. This update ensures that the Google Photos editor offers a consistent user experience across both mobile and desktop platforms.
