Google Photos launches the “Camouflage” function which allows you to change the color of objects20/07/2022 17:01
It was announced during the presentation of the Google Pixel 6a, but the truth is that it went somewhat unnoticed among the deluge of news that Google I/O 2022 left us. Now the object color change function is about to come to Google Photos.
This is a new tool integrated with the “Magic Eraser” feature, which Google calls “Camouflage”. Thanks to it, it is possible to reduce the saturation of certain objects that appear in the photographs, to prevent them from stealing the spotlight from what is really important.
Camouflage tool begins to reach Google Photos
Since this is a feature of Google Photos’ “Magic Eraser”, chances are this tool will be exclusive to Pixel devices, at least initially.
Thanks to a tweet posted by Esper.io Technical Writer Mishaal Rahman, we got to see how this tool works for the first time. You can see how, after selecting an object, it is possible to use the camouflage function to desaturate its colors and prevent them from being distracting.

At the moment the function has not started rolling out, but everything seems to indicate that it will start reaching Google Photos from this Thursday, during the celebration of the global launch of the new Google Pixel 6a.
