Google Offers Experimental Photo Apps

Considering this fact, Google released three fantastic photography apps.

Google has announced the launch of three new free photography apps. One of the apps on offer is a riff on the Hyperlapse app, called Motion Stills, which converts short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental rendering and stabilisation technology. This is the latest Google app to receive such modification after Maps, Gmail, Photos and a couple of others.

Google is releasing some new apps they call "appsperiments". You will soon be able to tap a "start" button at the bottom of the screen with the details about your transit journey.

Now only available for Android, Storyboard (pictured above) will take a video on your device and transform it into a single-page comic layout.

Selfissimo! (Android & iOS) allows you to strike a pose and get a selfie every time you stop moving. Simply load your video into the app, wait a couple of seconds, and Google will present you with a comic strip with conventionalized effects.

"For each accessibility capability declared, you must have an accompanying disclosure to describe the app functionality that the Accessibility Service permission is enabling for your app". Of the three, the Storyboard is only available for Android phones whereas the Scrubbies is only for the iPhones. You can tap the screen to end the session and review the resulting contact sheet, saving individual images or the entire shoot. "They rely on object recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies, and perhaps most importantly, fun", wrote Alex Kauffmann, Interaction Researcher, Google Research, in a blog post. This app plays to the video loop trend that has been popular for years now. The Selfissimo! app focusses on the selfie-loving users who want portrait shots in Black & White, it is available for both the platforms.

Talking about the three apps based on appsperiments, these are Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies. "Swipe back and forwards on the video to 'remix" it. Swipe the video with two fingers to record the playback.
