The December Pixel Feature Drop quietly added more ML-powered “Suggestions” that improve sky pictures on Google’s first-party gadgets. Simultaneously, Google Photos additionally presented another “HDR” filter adjustment.
Back in September, the Google Photos editor was completely upgraded on Android. The “Adjust” tab, after Brightness and Contrast, presently shows an “HDR” impact that is badged with a yellow dot on first use.
Like most changes, tapping gives you a 100-point slider. You can tap the HDR button to jump right to 100 or reset.
This new alternative is more much the same as a filter in that it takes a shot at any picture from screenshots to something downloaded on the web. It doesn’t seem to take advantage of any data caught by the Pixel’s camera framework, yet rather mimics the HDR impact.
Like the new “Dynamic” and sunrise/sunset effects, this Google Photos HDR filter is right now just accessible on Pixel telephones. It doesn’t appear on third-party gadgets or the web customer. It mirrors a developing pattern of Pixels getting new Photos includes first.
While declared with the December security fix, this is a server-side rollout that just requires the most recent version of Photos for Android and is presently finished.
