photos app

Microsoft recently released an update for Photos app on Windows 10 Anniversary update. In case you are wondering, the Photos app version 16.1118.10000.0 brings a completely refreshed UI or interface for the app making it easier to navigate across your photos collection.

There is also an option for you to choose between the dark and light theme, or simply set it to system if it doesn’t bother you, anyway.

Plus, Photos also now has a horizontal navigation bar, making it easier than ever to view your memories in different ways: your whole collection chronologically, or by Albums or Folders. You will also notice subtle animations across the app while hovering over or selecting a picture etc


The new Photos app will also let you draw on your memories, just to emphasize a point or convey your story more naturally, make it more personal. You can use your stylus (or your finger if you have a touch screen device, or your mouse!) to draw on your memories directly.

You can also draw on videos, and the ink will play back at the right places when others view it.

The photo editor now has a new, easy-to-use interface. The commands have been rearranged to emphasize the most common user needs, such as easy cropping and adjusting. There is also the option to apply the filters, just in case, if you want.
