Edit Images Like A Pro With The New Google Photos ‘Helpful Editor’ Feature

Google Photos is coming with a new killer feature that helps Android users edit images like professionals and it is termed ‘helpful editor’. Users should start seeing the improvements from the beginning of October 2020.


In a blog post, the Alphabet-owned American search giant made the revelation. What the feature does is make smart suggestions to the app users. It provides ‘easy-to-use granular adjustments’ to improve photos.


Google says it is building the new features on its already existing brightening, rotating and archiving suggestion functions. Google Photos app will do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to editing photos with this new editor.

“We’ve added a new tab right in the editor that uses machine learning to give you suggestions that are tailored to the specific photo you’re editing,” Google explains. It says that users will start seeing suggestions like Enhance and Colour Pop soon.


Also, over the course of coming months, the company will add more suggestions. These suggestions will first come to Pixel devices, however, and Google did not mention when other users should expect them. The new editor will help make granular edits like brightness, contrasts, saturation, and others easier to apply.


Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will have a Portrait Light editing feature. This uses machine learning to improve the lighting on faces in portraits. It also doesn’t matter if the user captured the image using Portrait mode or not. “You’ll also be able to add Portrait Light to regular photos not captured in Portrait mode—whether it’s a photo you just took or an important picture from the past—on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5, with availability on more Pixel devices soon,” Google says.
