Google Photos for iOS Now Supports Portrait Depth Effect Editing

Google Photos for iOS Now Supports Portrait Depth Effect Editing

One of the big selling points of the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR is the ability to edit the depth effect in portrait mode photos.

It is worth noting here that the feature to adjust bokeh effect on Google Photos is limited to photos that are being captured using the Portrait mode on the default Camera app. Let's see some more details on it. This has previously been available on Android only. Now, iPhone users can edit the background blur and focus of portrait mode images within the Google Photos iOS app. However, some people say Google Photos does a better job and produces noticeably superior results. Tap the main subject in your photo and it will remain in color while everything in the background turns black and white.

Simply open the image in the Google Photos app and tap on the edit button, the Color Pop option will be available to you as the first filter option.

See, even though iPhone users have been able to take portrait mode shots since the 7 came out, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models and below don't include depth editing features in the iOS Photos app. Tapping the edit button a second time reveals the depth slider.

If you're interested in trying out the new feature, be sure to install the latest update if you haven't already. This is all for now, folks.
