Google staff software engineer Erik Murphy-Chutorian announced two new #Autoawesome features in a Google+ update. The two tiny additions to its features for touching up photos probably wouldn’t have warranted much attention eleven months of the year. So, the holiday-special Auto-Awesome features couldn’t have arrived at a better time. It’s Christmas, and in many parts of the world it’s a white one.
So, upload your chosen photos and allow Google+ to work its magic with either of these two filters. In both cases, you have to wait for the notification from Google+ to inform you that the image is ready. Here’s how both work…
Twinkle: Upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and Google will “gift” you a version with lights that actually twinkle.
Snow: Upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and Google will “gift” you a version with snow that’s actually falling.
Auto Awesome are fun filters that help you give your photos and videos some extra oomph. Auto Awesome photos include effects like Eraser, Action, Pano, HDR, Motion, smile, and Mix. If you haven’t tried them out yet, maybe this is as good a time as any. It’s gimmicky – yes. But it’s simple fun.
