Google has launched an update for its cloud storage app that will automatically touch-up your images. The new "auto white balance" feature on Google Photos will add white balance, exposure and saturation whenever you apply a filter to an image. Apart from that, you can also manually adjust Warmth and Tint in Color, giving you the option to get that perfect click, even if it takes a little bit of Google’s magic.
What makes this feature so great is that the effects make the photos look more realistic. At times, images tend to look unnatural when it is taken outside, adding tints of yellow or blue.
What sets Google Photos apart from other image storing applications is its ability to identify specific objects like beaches, dogs, frisbees etc. allowing you to find images quickly from its search bar. The app also automatically stores and categorises photos in albums which other users can add to on a later date. If that's not enough, you can store unlimited photos which can free up valuable gigabytes of storage on your mobile phone.
Auto white balance is rolling out this week on Android operated devices and web while the iOS version will be updated soon.
