Facebook Will Now Help Your Photos Look Way Better

Dec 17, 2014

Ever wanted to upload a photo to Facebook from your phone, but the lighting was way off?

Facebook is adding an auto-enhance feature to its mobile apps, giving users the option to use a sliding bar to adjust photos before they upload them, TechCrunch reports. The new feature builds on Facebook's previous enhancing capabilities, which were limited to unadjustable filters.

Facebook is the latest tech platform to make photo editing more convenient and personalized. Instagram, which launched five new filters this week, made a big change in June when the Facebook-owned photo-sharing community unveiled sliding bars to adjust the intensity of each filter. Apple's iOS 8, released in September, also took a step towards fast photo editing when it included basic color and light editing on its default Photos app.
