Key notes

  • There is a new update in the works on the OneDrive web app.
  • Users will now be able to edit their photos with image filters within the browser. 
  • The rollout begins later this month and will initially be available only for JPG and JPEG files.

Microsoft is overworking when it comes to releasing updates. OneDrive users are the recipients of the good news as the company is currently working on a new update that will allow users to enhance their photos with image filters. 

The company announced the news through the Microsoft 365 Admin centre and will begin rollout later this month. There is no official date yet, so we should expect it in a few days now. 

New look from the browser

The new update will allow users to make the enhancements right from their web browsers. Some of the expected enhancements include; contrast, exposure, highlights, and saturation. They will also be able to add color to shadows, turn photos into black and white and apply mid-tones.

You can now edit your photos without the hassle of transferring from one app to the other with the newly added features.

Available formats

Whereas there are many image formats from different devices, Microsoft notes that the only available options that will allow the filters will be the JPG and JPEG formats. Later on, the PNG format will also be integrated.

The update has also not been availed to iOS and Android users, but the company is making plans to bring this capability soon, so we can only wait and see what’s in store in the coming months.
