Golden Gate Computer Society – Photo Skills for iPhone and Android

Nov 28 2022 @10pm ET. Golden Gate Computer Society Chris and Jim Guld, also known as Geeks on Tour, will be returning for a presentation to cover taking pictures, editing pictures in your phone and organizing them – for both iPhone and Android users. Chris Guld is an award-winning Google Photos Product expert. New camera features in recent smart phones using artificial intelligence can – with just a click of a button – do some amazing things. Topics to be covered include:

  • Google Photos – recent improvements: photo grid and “best of month” features.
  • Background blurring after the picture is taken, especially useful for portraits
  • Face unblurring, also after the picture is taken
  • Smart object eraser
  • Color focus
  • Advanced photo searching techniques, including smarter naming of photo albums
  • Using motion photos (Android) and Live photos (iPhone): Very useful tools whether you want to show a diver at the exact moment of hitting the water or making sure everyone in a group photo has their eyes open
