Google Photos for Android updated with non-destructive editing
Google has launched version 1.17 of its Google Photos for Android app and the update brings an important improvement: non-destructive editing. The feature had already been available on the app's iOS version but on Android Google Photos created a new version of an edited image each time you hit the save button, potentially adding up to a large number of almost identical copies of the same image.
With the update, edits are now tracked and saved by the app, allowing you to go back to any point in the editing timeline or revert to the image's original version completely. This is good news for Android mobile photographers who like to use Google Photos for basic image editing including cropping, rotating and application of filters. The new feature makes it much easier to try out different editing workflows without cluttering your image folders. You can download the latest version of Google Photos for Android from the Google Play Store now.
