OnePlus Gallery v2 has a new 3-tab interface, adds map UI for geotagged photos

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Even when a manufacturer strives for a stock-like experience, they'll still include a few OEM made apps, and that's the case for OnePlus as well. The OnePlus Gallery app might only be up to v1.2.1 on Google Play, but a build for v2 has been making the rounds, and it actually has some significant changes. Most notably a redesigned interface with tabs moved to the bottom and a new "places" section that shows where images were taken.

Google fixes bug that prevented Motion Photos from being deleted from Drive when you delete them in Photos

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Motion Photos debuted alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as a direct competitor to Apple's Live Photos. These Motion Photos are saved by default whenever you take a picture, allowing you to catch a glimpse of the background while the photo was being taken. But until a day or two ago, these Motion Photos would remain in your Google Drive library, even if you'd already deleted them through Photos.

Google Photos v3.8 adds a shortcut to notification settings, prepares Maps integration and photo book wizards [APK Teardown]

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Google began rolling out a new version of the Photos app this afternoon. It's not a particularly feature rich update, it appears to include just a convenient shortcut for notification channels and a promotion for free shipping on photo books. However, a teardown does add a bit more meat to this release as it foretells of some basic integration with Google Maps and some helpful wizards for building quality photo books.

Portrait mode on the Pixel 2 mimics the results of an SLR, and here’s how it works

Friday, October 20th, 2017

The Portrait mode on the new Pixel 2 phones is impressive. With just a single camera, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are able to mimic a convincing depth of field effect, like that created by much larger hardware. It isn't quite as good as an SLR, but it's a reasonable approximation. And if you were interested in exactly how it works, we've put together an explanation. 

For the full details, you can read the full Google's post on its Research Blog yourself, but we've assembled a simplified synopsis for exactly how it all works.

Google confirms original-quality photo uploads from the 2016 Pixels are grandfathered for life

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Ever since Google went out of its way to put a (very short) expiration date on unlimited photo uploads for the new Pixel 2s, there's been some concern about the original 2016 Pixels, as they never had a limit placed on them. We reached out to a Google representative for some clarification and were told that nothing has changed when it comes to the original Pixels. Both the 2016 Pixel and 2016 Pixel XL will continue to receive free unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos with no time limitations.

Google Photos v3.7 ends ambiguity around Pixel 2’s free original quality storage offer [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Google launched a pretty cool promotion in 2016 with the offer to store every photo and video taken on Pixels at original quality. The same promotion will apply this year with the release of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but it now comes with a catch: The promotion expires in the year 2020.

Unfortunately, the phrasing of the new terms left room for interpretation, leaving many people concerned that all of their uploaded photos would suddenly count against their storage quota or may be converted to lower quality once the expiration date hit.
