One of the most important changes is the Windows Ink support, which lets users draw directly on pictures with various tools, depending on what platform they’re on. You can draw with a pen, through touch, or the old fashioned way, which means using a mouse. Having Windows Ink on all platforms means that Microsoft customers can now express themselves more easily and customize their photos to their liking. The feature also lets you save a doodle and apply it directly to another photo in the future.
The Photos app also includes new filters, as the entire editing department was revamped. People will receive a more responsive and diverse experience when trying to customize a picture with filters through the Photos editing tool.
Last but definitely not least, we have a new user interface, which will be the first thing you spot as being new when opening the updated app. Not only has the Photos UI been given a new coat of paint, but also a new image. Microsoft revamped the UI in full, giving it a fresh aspect that screams “clean”.
Navigating through the app is now a blast, and users will enjoy rediscovering Photos app. Microsoft even changed the functionality of the mouse scroll for Photos, making it zoom in on a picture rather than scroll through an album. While it does seem weird that the scroll button doesn’t scroll anymore, Microsoft did a great job in bringing Photos back to life, as the company continues its update spree across all platforms.
