AI editing tools are coming to all Google Photos users

The before and after effects of using Magic Editor and Photo Unblur to help improve a photo.

With the right editing tools, your photos can really shine. Google Photos has several features to help you enhance your pictures without pro-level editing skills, from removing a distraction in the background to unblurring a fuzzy shot. And now we’re bringing those capabilities to even more people.

Starting on May 15, many of our AI-powered editing tools — like Magic Eraser, Photo Unblur and Portrait light — will be available to anyone using Google Photos1, no subscription required. You'll also be able to access these features on more devices, including Pixel tablets.

Here’s a closer look at some of these editing tools, and how they can spruce up your photos:

  • The before and after effects of using Photo Unblur to sharpen a photo of three people

    Photo Unblur: Clear up those blurry shots to relive your favorite moments with greater clarity.

  • The before and after effects of using Magic Eraser to remove a trash can in the background of a photo with two children.

    Magic Eraser: Remove photobombers and other distractions with a few taps.

  • The before and after effects of using Portrait Light to help brighten a photo of two people with a scenic background.

    Portrait light: Adjust the position and brightness of light in portraits.

Make complex edits with Magic Editor

Last year, we launched Magic Editor on Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Using generative AI, this editor makes it easy to do complex photo edits with simple and intuitive actions, like repositioning your subject or turning the sky from gray to blue. Now we’re expanding access to Magic Editor to all Pixel devices.

Additionally, all Google Photos users on Android and iOS will get 10 Magic Editor saves per month2. To go beyond this limit, you'll need a Pixel device or a Premium Google One plan (2TB and above).

Magic Editor: Reimagine your photos with the help of generative AI.

These tools will gradually roll out starting May 15 and over the following weeks to all devices that meet minimum requirements. Look out for them in Google Photos to help make your shots picture-perfect.
