It's a renaissance in smartphone photography! Google has just unveiled a suite of AI-powered photo-editing tools for its latest Pixel 8 series. Get ready to be spellbound!
Magic Editor: Not just an editor, but pure magic! Select objects, shift, resize, and let the AI handle the rest, including background recreation. From suggesting edits based on lighting and ambiance to offering multiple edit outcomes for user choice, Magic Editor is a game-changer. Announced initially at Google I/O in May, Google does hint that we're seeing the early stages of this feature, so there’s room for growth.
Best Take: Say goodbye to group photo bloopers! Combining multiple shots, Best Take crafts that perfect photo where everyone looks their best. Not a fan of AI's choice? Pick your preferred expressions from various shots and merge effortlessly. It's essentially face swapping, but smarter.
More Photo Magic: Alongside these two stars, the Pixel 8 series will introduce the Magic Eraser to vanish unwanted photo-bombers and Photo Unblur to crystalize those shaky shots. For the Pixel 8 Pro users, an enhanced Magic Eraser awaits, enabling removal of larger objects.
But the wonders don't end there. Pixel 8 Pro is set to redefine zoom quality with its Zoom Enhance. Using generative AI, it bridges pixel gaps during cropping, ensuring your cropped images retain quality.
This AI photo revolution will kick off on October 12 with the Pixel 8 series phones. And for the tech aficionados, Google has also teased us with the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Watch 2 announcements.
With these advancements, Google's message is loud and clear: The future of smartphone photography is here, and it's dazzling! Are you ready to click and edit with intelligence?
