If you’ve ever wanted to work for Google, now’s your chance. Well, sort of. Google Photos is now expanding its survey that helps the algorithm recognize what’s in the photos. In other words, you’ll be able to label your images from scratch and tag them in order to train Google’s algorithm further.
Google Photos is getting powerful new updates to its auto-enhance editor. The tool will soon rely on artificial intelligence, making every edit suitable for the particular photo that you work on. You’ll also be able to relight your portraits after taking them, but with a catch: it will only be available on new Pixel phones.
After releasing it in Ireland in 2019, Facebook is now expanding the feature that lets you upload your photos and videos directly to Google Photos. Starting today, users in the U.S. and Canada will have this option available, which should make it faster and more convenient to transfer your data between different services.
Google’s AI labels what it sees in your photos, and sometimes it doesn’t really do the best job. Now Google has announced some changes and its Cloud Vision API tool is going gender-neutral. Instead of labeling people in photos as “man” or “woman,” the tool will now play it safe and label them simply as “person.”
Always be careful what you put in “the cloud”, people. Google Photos is facing yet another controversy as Google reveals that a “technical issue” may have included your videos in somebody else’s export download archive. Google faced a similar issue last year with Vu Android TVs that were showing other peoples photos.
I believe that most people print photos only on special occasions once in a Blue Moon. But the new Google Photos test subscription wants to make photo printing a habit. It helps you select the ten best photos you took every month. It will then order prints for you, and they will be delivered to your address.
Google Photos has been making some changes lately and adding some new features. Starting today, the app integrates a messaging service. This way, users will have a chat feature right in the app, which should make it faster to share photos and videos with friends.
Facebook has launched a new tool that lets you easily transfer all your photos and videos straight to Google Photos. The feature is only available in Ireland for now, but it will soon be rolled out globally, too.
Here’s an interesting twist of fate. Google Photos used to offer free unlimited original quality photo backup for the Pixel phones as a perk of owning one of the devices. This courtesy, apparently, hasn’t been extended to the new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL phones. You’ll only be able to save compressed jpg backups to Google Photos on the free unlimited account.
It seems, however, that due to the file sizes offered by Apple’s HEIC/HEVC encoding, Google Photos doesn’t need to compress the files to optimise them for storage. In fact, recompressing them would result in a larger file. So, the original image quality captured by the iPhone is retained with the free unlimited storage on Google Photos.
Despite the fact that we live in the digital era, printing your photos is still a fantastic way to preserve your precious memories (or make a creative project). Google Photos has introduced a new feature that lets you order prints straight through the app and pick them from a local CVS Pharmacy or Walmart store the same day. Along with the new printing feature, Google Photos has some more changes, all revolving around reliving your memories.
