Google Photos will offer a subscription plan and now the company launches a new video editor included in the app with enhanced editing features.
The company announced juicy new features for the gallery app, premium photo editing features for Google One subscribers, and a complete video editor that has previously debuted on iOS.
Features of the new Google Photos video editor
With the latest update to Google Photos, the company finally remedies the imbalance between the two content on Android: while photo editing features have gained versatility over time, the video editor did not have a lot of tools to play with. That changes completely with the new editor features.
Google Photos now allows you to edit videos with exclusive features. These are its new features:
- Video cropping: Now you can crop the shot manually and also apply automatic cropping; such as 4:3, 16:9, or square.
- Perspective correction: By adjusting the corners of the image it is now possible to correct the perspective of the video.
- Full image adjustment: The video editor releases the customization of brightness, contrast, white point, highlights, shadows, allows the adjustment of the black point, saturation, warmth, Google Photos allows you to vary the overall tone of the video and the skin tone of people, you can adjust the blue tone (ideal for skies) and also apply a vignette to the image.
- Video filters: As with photo apps, the video editor now allows you to apply filters to videos. Different preset tones ranging from vivid colors to monochrome.
- Drawing on videos: Want to doodle on your recordings? You’ll be able to do that from now on.
Google Photos video editor will be updated with version 5.35. You should receive it soon. If the update does not appear, you can try downloading the APK.
