Google Photos update wants you to get creative – but there’s a catch

Make movie memories with Google’s new video editor. Video editing is coming to Google Photos soon, allowing users to live out their film-making dreams – however, there may be some limitations.

With a lengthy Google blog post explaining the new movie-making features, as well as a plethora of other recently released applications and tools, it was revealed that users would soon be able to create and edit movies in only a few taps. There’s a catch, though. The video editing program will currently “be available initially on Chromebooks,” according to current plans. There is also no indication of when or even if the feature would be made available to all Google Photos users.

How does Google Photos video editing work?

The new service seems to provide users a choice between automatic video creation and starting from scratch to develop their own project. A montage of videos and photographs, including what Google claims “the most memorable moments” from longer films, may be created using the former by letting users select a theme and the subjects. The photo cloud storage app’s users will be allowed to search it, then upload and rearrange their own data if they’d rather start with a clean slate.

Regardless of the path users choose, they may then cut clips even more, add titles, music, and narration, change the brightness and contrast, or use the just-released Real Tone skin filters.

When the functionality launches, expect to see a movie editor more in line with the basic, consumer-level Microsoft Video Editor if the ChromeOS version is anything like the Google Photos video editor app on mobile, which launched last year.

The LumaFusion app, for high-quality video editing, is also coming to Chromebooks. You can add graphics, visual effects, transitions, and distortions, audio tracks, and sound effects, as well as narration, color grading, and more, to LumaFusion’s multitrack video editor, according to Google.

In our interview with Terry Morgan and Chris Demiris, co-founders of LumaFusion, about the iPad’s top video editing app, they revealed the following to Epblogs:

“Creating for Android is undoubtedly difficult and necessitates a specialized development team. It essentially involves starting from scratch with LumaFusion on a different OS with unique advantages and disadvantages.

Video editing isn’t the only update planned. The photo storage and sharing site also unveiled new features for pre-installed Chromebook apps.

For creatives and content creators, chief among these are the forthcoming PDF editor tool for the Gallery app and opening up the newly launched free screen recorder app Screencast.
