Facebook will auto-enhance newly uploaded photos beginning Tuesday, TechCrunch’s Josh Constine reports.
In the age of the smartphone, everyone carries a camera around wherever they go. That doesn’t mean we’re all professional photographers though, or that we want to be. Facebook’s new automated service will make it so users don’t have to worry about DIY filtering.
Before the change was implemented, Facebook would show you your unedited photo, give you an option to apply a one-size-fits-all enhancement, or tweak it yourself. Facebook says the automatic enhancement will be faster and more custom than the status quo.
Facebook isn’t the only social site that’s focused on making image sharing simpler. Twitter and Instagram both just rolled out new filters. In lieu of filters, Google+ offers an auto-enhance function similar to the one Facebook is implementing now.
