The new Google Photos editor will offer edit suggestions, and better layout to apply edits on photos.

Google has introduced a new editing tool in the Google Photos app. The new editor for Google Photos will be available to Android users starting today.

The new Google Photos editor will offer smart suggestions, and easy-to-use granular adjustments. There’s a new tab in the editor that will offer suggestions powered by machine learning. Users will see suggestions like enhance and color pop as editing options for photos. The new editor will also show the specific edits so you know how the photo looks different. Google plans to add more such suggestions that will help photos such as portraits, landscapes, sunsets stand out.

It should be easier to find and apply granular edits with the new Google Photos editor. Elements like brightness, contrast, saturation and warmth can now be scrolled through quickly with the editor’s new layout.

Google has also launched ‘Portrait Light’, a new editing feature exclusive to the newly launched Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. This feature uses machine learning to improve the lighting on faces in portraits. Users will be able to adjust the light position and brightness post-capture through the Google Photos app. What’s more interesting is that users will be able to add Portrait Light to photos that were not captured in Portrait mode. This feature is currently available only on the new Pixels but it will roll out to older models soon.

As for the rest of the features with the new Google Photos editor, Google has started rolling out the update for Android users starting today.
