Google always shows photographers some love and these latest photo apps are going a long way towards continuing that tradition.
The new apps are simple and easy to use. They have been engineered from the ground up to enhance selfies and video.
Selfissimo, Storyboard and Scrubbies were revealed on Google’s very own research blog which described the thinking behind the apps at length.
Per the blog post on Google, “Today, we're launching the first installment of a series of photography appsperiments: usable and useful mobile photography experiences built on experimental technology. Our “appsperimental” approach was inspired in part by Motion Stills, an app developed by researchers at Google that converts short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies. Our appsperiments replicate this approach by building on other technologies in development at Google. They rely on object recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies, and perhaps most importantly, fun!”
