*Welcome to #AutoEnhance
Earlier today at Google I/O, +Vic Gundotra
- two new features to help make sharing your photos more fun and more creative. To help you become more familiar with these tools, here’s a brief Q&A along with some sample images to enjoy. Can you give me some more details on how Google+ will enhance my photos?
Sure! Auto Enhance analyzes your photos as you upload them, then optimizes brightness, contrast, details, noise, focus, and many other factors in order to help them really shine. Just click on the Enhanced
hover button on newly uploaded photos to see the results. You can also manually turn on Auto Enhance on older images by clicking on ‘More’ and select ‘Auto Enhance’.Will the Auto Enhanced version overwrite my original photos?
No. We will never overwrite your original photo and Auto Enhance can be removed and reapplied at any time.Will Google retroactively apply Auto Enhance to all of the photos that I’ve already uploaded?
Auto Enhance will only be applied to new images that you upload (via Auto Backup or to your Albums) and every image you add will always be private until you’re ready to share it. We will never apply Auto Enhance to images that you’ve already shared.That’s great! So what’s Auto Awesome?
Whereas Auto Enhance helps make your uploaded images shine bright, Auto Awesome will look at your photos and create fun, new images to share your favorite moments. When we find the right arrangement of images, we’ll generate new Auto Awesome images and place them alongside your original photos. Just like Auto Enhance photos, they’ll remain private until you choose to share them, and we’ll never replace your images. What sort of photos can I expect to see with Auto Awesome?
With Auto Awesome, we’ll create animated images with our Motion photos, ultra wide sweeping scenes with Pano, and even help you show all of the details in your image with HDR. On top of that, if you’re at a party or with a group of friends, we’ll make it easy for you to create photobooth style collages with Mix and put together great looking group shots with Smile photos. #GooglePlusUpdate
