The Ability To Turn Black & White Images Into Colour Automatically Coming To Google Photos: Google Photos


If you have a Google account, you have access to Google Photos and as well as storing/viewing images, users can apply a range of edits.

While viewing photos, a range of actions will now appear which give users the tools needed to brighten, rotate, share and archive images. AI is also used to apply colour popping to photos without the need for users to brush out colour (as you would need to in Photoshop, for example). Instead, the built-in AI detects the subject, leaves them in colour and switches the background to black and white with no effort needed on the user's part (accessed via the Assistant tab of Google Photos). 

The AI-powered editing in Google Photos will also, one day, be able to transform black & white images into colour with just one tap but this is a feature Google's Developers are still working on. 

Those looking for even more ways to explore the potentials of creative photography should take a look at Google's three other free apps which the Google Research Team are calling 'photography appsperiments'.
