Have you ever had friends over and then gathered together for a picture only for it turn out with a sickly yellow sheen? Or how about trying to take a shot outside on a cloudy day and everything looks just a little too blue? My photo albums are filled with pictures like this. Photos that look good but don't look great.
Well, the criminally underrated Google Photos app is getting an update that will take those color balancing woes away.
All you have to do is select a "look" when you're editing photos and the app will automatically correct the white balance (this is in addition to Google automatically correcting the exposure and saturation). And if Google's system doesn't get it quite right you can always tweak it more in the Color menu by adjusting Warmth and Tint.
Thankfully, you won't have to wait long to end the plague of yellow-tinted photos. Auto white balance will be coming to Android phones and the web app later this week and sometime soon for iOS.
