the new Photos app is more beautiful, but loses its video editor

Microsoft announced on the company’s blog that a new version of the Photos application will be made available to all computers enrolled in the Inside program. On the menu, a personalized user experience and better integration with OneDrive.

According to Panos Panay, product manager at Microsoft, Windows 11 is the most used and most loved of all versions of the OS ever released. We bet that the changes brought by the Windows 11 2022 update will further accelerate the adoption of the new operating system. In this sense, the Photos application again benefits from a redesign and sees its enhanced integration with OneDrive.

The Photo Gallery redesign is the most visible change. This is easier to reorganize and offers, according to Microsoft teams, “a personalized experience” navigation. In other words, browsing through thousands of images or finding photos according to very specific criteria will be much easier.

Photos offers better integration with OneDrive

Another notable improvement is the ability to work with multiple screens and/or windows simultaneously, a feature that professionals or discerning amateurs will greatly appreciate. For this type of user, the most image-hungry, it will also be easier to import photos from smartphones or cameras. If you have a lot of photos, the 5GB of free storage will not be enough, you can buy more space in the Cloud directly from the application. Logically, integration with OneDriveMicrosoft’s cloud storage solution, is now more natural.

Microsoft does not proclaim it loud and clear, but the video editor integrated into Photos has disappeared in the Windows 11 22H2 update. If you really like it, the latter is available for download from the Microsoft Store. To replace it, the company strongly urges videographers to turn to ClipChamp, a software dedicated to creating and editing videos preinstalled in Windows 11 since last spring. This application has the heavy task of successor to the beloved Windows Movie Maker. The presentation of Microsoft’s new Surface PCs is scheduled for October 12. The ideal time to announce the general availability of the new version of Photos?
