Google Photos: the Portrait Light effect arrives on the old Pixels

Portrait Light, an effect allowing to adjust the lighting of a photo in Google Photos was until now reserved only for the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. It is now available on the old Pixels.

Google unveiled a few weeks ago new editing tools in its Google Photos application. Among these, Portrait Light, an effect allowing to adjust the position of the lighting on a subject after the fact, was only officially available for the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5, the two most recent smartphones from Google.

Google Photos, however, has just been updated, and the latest version of the application stamped 5.15.0.337400196 inaugurates Portrait Lighting for old Pixels. Tested on our Pixel 3XL, we were able to play with this new effect by going directly to the Google Photos editing tools, on a Photo captured using the Portrait mode of our device. This feature would, a priori, be available from the Pixel 2.

To find this effect, you will need to activate the Google Photos editing tools, then go to the section Adjust where you should find the option Portrait lighting. You will then only have to adjust the intensity of the lighting to be applied, then to move the position of the virtual light source displayed in the image to modify the positioning and the lighting effect on the face of your topic.
