9to5Google is reporting that Google Photos Sharpen & Denoise editing tools are now rolling out to the Android app. When Google released the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G the company also gave fans a redesigned Photos editor. Now the video experience recently got updated too. Google isn’t done as it is now giving Google Photos some new editing tools.
When users tap “Edit” on a picture they can navigate to Adjust. Then when users scroll to the very end of the carousel they will see the two new editing tools. Users can find these in between the Pop and Vignette tools.
You can tell these apart as they are marked with a yellow dot. This is similar to when the HDR effect launched for Pixel and Google One subscribers. The new tools range from 0 to 100 in their incremental improvements range.
Google Photos Sharpen & Denoise can make your photos look better
The new tools fall in line with other image editing apps. Users can use Sharpen to create a less blurry image. When using Denoise users can remove any background grain in their photos. Just know that if you turn the tools to the max, the effect appears apparent and not accurate.
Sharpen and Denoise tools coming to Google Photos are still rolling out to everyone. The new tools will appear in the Android app and not the iOS app or web. The update is being pushed out via a server-side update.
One thing that is not known is if these new tools will be locked behind a Google One subscription. For those who do not know, Google began making its Google One subscription a bit more important lately. Some features are locked behind subscriptions.
On the other end, with the Google Photos unlimited storage option leaving a Google One subscription is imperative for those with a lot of photos and video. A Google One subscription does offer extra features though. So in the end paying for a subscription gives you more than just storage. But, if you are not interested in paying Google Amazon and other services are available.
Google Photos getting some new tools is making the app an all-in-one tool. After getting some video editing improvements, the app looks like it can meet the needs of many users. Whether the users need to edit photos or videos, they have an app that does it all for them. At least when it comes to some basic editing.
