Google Photos for Android Just Made Editing Photos Less Tasking


Google Photos now allows you to make changes and preserve the original without clogging up your albums.

With the newest version of the Photos app, it will save the new copy in the same place with the changes applied. However, if you open it later, you can undo the edits you’ve made to restore the original. This still gives you the flexibility to edit an image without fear you’ll destroy it, while also keeping your albums clean of the many duplicates that you can quickly collect by editing a bunch of photos.

Before the update, Google Photos would save an entirely new version of a photo every time you made new edits and tapped save, making it easy to wind up with an app full of multiple versions of (nearly) the same photo. Worse, if you opened up one of those edited photos, you weren’t able to go back and adjust any of the edits you made — any further changes just created another new, edited version of the photo. The update fixes both of these problems, helping cut down on clutter while allowing people more freedom with their edits.
