Earlier this year, during the Build 2017 keynote, Microsoft announced a new version of its Photos app which comes preinstalled with Windows 10. Shortly after the initial announcement, some new features have been rolled out as an update for members of the Windows Insider program. But a few days ago, the company finally made them available for everyone, including those on the current branch release, Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703).
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all the rage these days and companies are pouring millions of dollars into its research and development. Soon, the Photos app in Windows 10 will get some AI-magic which should make it easier for you to find the photos you have taken. Let's see how.
Microsoft has started rolling out another update for its in-build Windows 10 Photos app for members of the Windows Insider program. The new update not only introduces new features, but also improves the UI by adding new animations and transition effects so the user experience is now even more smooth. Other new features include Microsoft Sway integration in the Share menu and adding slow-motion effects to any video.
Microsoft Photos, the built-in app in Windows 10 for viewing and organizing your photos has got support for Windows Ink. The integration was introduced with the recent update of the app.
The Photos app is a Universal (Metro) app which comes pre-installed in Windows 10. This app is intended to replace Windows Photo Viewer, since Microsoft wants to make the whole user environment look and work the same on Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 for PCs. While interested users can restore the classic desktop app, Windows Photo Viewer, those who prefer to use Photos might be interested in learning its keyboard shortcuts.
Windows 10 ships with a Photos app which replaced the Windows Photo Viewer and Photo Gallery. Photos offers very basic functionality to view images from the user's local drive or from the OneDrive cloud storage. Microsoft is finally going to make a small amount of features which their earlier apps had. More features will land in the Photos app with the Redstone update.
