Microsoft’s new Windows 11 Photos app is a nice update

Microsoft has begun testing a new Windows 11 photos app. Like many other Windows, the Photos app has been changed to match the new operating system, with small tweaks that can help you glimpse photos or movies.

The greatest feature is a new film tip at the end of the photo viewer showing miniature photographic photos in a certain directory, collection or album. It makes it easier to jump between them or to select many photos for the new “multi-view” user interface.

Multi-view is for me personally the nicest innovation because you can compare a bunch of photos in one single window. This is useful if you shot all day and want to rapidly select photos to retain or reject.
While the Windows 10 photos app does not contain a particularly embarrassing UI, it has been slightly streamlined by Microsoft in Windows 11. You can reject the new movie or toolbars for photo editing by clicking on photos and swipping through pictures without distracting interface components.

The redesigned toolbar for photo editing also features some noteworthy additions. Microsoft adds fast access to photo editors from third parties. This is supported by extensions with software like Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel PaintShip Pro and Affinity Photo.

Unfortunately, the video trim tool has not yet been corrected by Microsoft. If you have a 60fps video, it will still transition to 30fps if you utilise the new Windows 11 photos app function. This app is currently beta, therefore it might change as soon as it is completely accessible on Windows 11. Microsoft seems to aim to deploy this to Windows 11 customers after the 5th of October, however. When you’re a Dev Channel Windows 11 tester, you can now test the upgraded photos app.
