Google Photos will soon have the option to take individuals’ 2D pictures and cause them to show up as though they’re 3D, the organization reported in a blog post on Tuesday. Google is calling these kinds of pictures “Cinematic photos,” and they’re another sort of picture the application can show as part of its Memories feature.
Here’s a GIF from Google contrasting a 2D picture with a Cinematic photograph. The feature looks pretty impressive:
To make Cinematic photographs, “we use machine learning to predict an image’s depth and produce a 3D representation of the scene—even if the original image doesn’t include depth information from the camera,” Jamie Aspinall, a Google Photos product manager, writes in Tuesday’s blog. “Then we animate a virtual camera for a smooth panning effect—just like out of the movies.”
Google says Google Photos will automatically make Cinematic photographs, and they’ll show up in the new features section above individuals’ photo grid.
The organization is additionally adding new themes for Memories. Presently, individuals will have the option to see Memories about notable individuals in their life, and soon, Google Photos will show them Memories about their favorite things (Google gave the example of sunsets) and activities, (for example, baking or hiking).
These new features in Memories will be turning out to clients throughout the following month, as indicated by Google.
