Google Photos Update Adds Auto White Balance Correction
Google says a new version of its Google Photos app introduces several new editing tools for improving photographs. The Google Photos editor already automatically corrects exposure and saturation, but will now also automatically correct white balance. It can sense whether photos are too yellow or too blue and balance them out. Further, the editor makes it possible to manually control white balance with a slider tool. Google says this feature is rolling out to Google Photos on the web and for Android devices this week, with iOS to follow later.
