The depth-editing feature allows you to edit the depth of field of your photos

After rolling out the depth-editing feature for Android users last month, Google Photos is now rolling this feature to its iOS users. The feature allows you to adjust the bokeh intensity of the photos shot in the portrait mode. The update has been confirmed by Google via Twitter and comes along with the Colour Pop option.

If you are an image-editing lover using an iOS device, you can now enjoy two new features on Google Photos- the Depth-editing and Colour Pop. Not that the depth-editing feature is an unknown feature for iPhone users but only users of iPhone X or above can use the feature. Reason being portrait mode support has been with iPhones since iPhone 7 but depth-editing is available for only iPhone X or above. With the new update being rolled out, all iPhone and iPad users with Google photos installed on their devices can now use the feature.

The depth-editing feature allows you to edit the depth of field of your photos. To use the feature, you need to first click a photo or open a photo that has been clicked in Portrait mode. You will see a new option called Depth at the bottom of your screen. Select that and now use the slider the slider to adjust the depth of field in your photo. You can create a Bokeh effect using the feature by allowing to blur the background of the image. You do not have to alter the focus area for that.

The feature only applies to iOS devices that enable Portrait mode from the camera. The feature shows up under the Edit option in the Photos App. The depth editing feature is already available for Pixel 3, Pixel 2 and Moto phones that support depth photos.

Colour Pop is another image-editing feature. The feature uses AI to change the colour of the background of the photo to black and white while the subject of the image continues to show the colours. Basically, it will allow you to saturate the colour of the subject and desaturate the background colour to black and white. Both the features are available on the latest version of Google Photos app. https://www.indiatoday.in/technology/news/story/iphone-users-can-now-edit-depth-and-focus-in-photos-shot-in-portrait-mode-using-google-photos-1392466-2018-11-20
