Google's Photography Apps

Synonymizing the giant search engine as the jumbo experimenting technological hub won’t go wrong, owing to its experimenting nature. And, for one more time, the Google has proved the fact all true with its “Appsperiments Project” for innovative iOS & Android photography mobile apps. Many of these iOS & Android apps are still available in the Play Store and App Store. These already-available-apps are giving out a way to Google to test experimental feature in Android and iOS photography applications.

The photography apps have been embedded with a series of features that Google is still experimenting upon. The focused technology includes object recognition, efficient image encoding and decoding techniques, person segmentation and stylization algorithms as announced by the giant as the latest Google news. Although the technologies are in experimenting stage, Google is trying its best to offer the apps to the users as soon as possible.

The three photography apps in-experiment are named as Storyboard, Scrubbies, and Selfissimo. Storyboard modifies videos into a single-page comic layout. By including comic book art feature, it turns photos into comic images. The trend of turning videos and photos into comic avatar has grown out recently with the growing use of Artificial Intelligence powered editing app called Prisma. In addition to adding a hint of comic art into photos and videos, the app automatically selects interesting frames in order to add comic modes into six different visual styles. It is Android-only for now.

Scrubbies is all about videos and it lets the users create loops in the video by changing the speed as well as the direction of the same. The feature is a bit different from Instagram’s Boomerang as Scrubbies lets you go hands on. Users can swipe on the video to mix different features into it. Google has made the feature very much interesting altogether by quoting it as “scratching it like a D.J.” With one finger users play the video while two fingers capture the playback. Scrubbies is iOS-only app.

Another photography app called Selfissimo, as the name signifies is designed for taking selfies from iOS devices as well as Android. The app is photography app that automates selfie and takes black and white photos every time you take a selfie. Whenever users stop moving, a selfie is taken. The end result comes up as a series of real photoshopped pictures. One limitation that could hamper the apps’ popularity is the black and white photo feature.
