Smartphones are nowadays equipped with cameras of high resolution which helps in clicking amazing pictures. However, not all pictures turn out to be good; there might be some which are duplicate or even blurred. You might not always get the time to remove the photos. There are lots of apps which will let you edit your photos but now you have an app which will take away your worries about deleting the bad photos from your smartphone. MyRoll, a photo management startup, based in Israel, is launching an app which will be able to find out all your bad photos and remove them.
The standalone app by MyRoll is known as Gallery Doctor and will find out all the duplicate or bad photos you have in your phone. The app is available for Android devices as of now, but will soon be available for iOS. The camera roll of your smartphone is scanned by Gallery Doctor and the snaps which the app thinks are hazy, duplicate of other photos or have bad lighting, are pulled out. The app checks your device and all the photos are separated into two sections: “Bad” and “Similar.” With a single tap of your hand, all the bad photos are removed automatically. This will help in freeing up your device’s storage space.
However, if you do not want to completely rely on the app’s automatic segregation, you can check the divisions yourself and act accordingly. Instead of hitting the delete button, you can swipe your finger to the right if you want to keep a photo or if you want to delete it, you can swipe left.
How Does it Work?
Earlier, MyRoll created an intelligent gallery app which finds all your best videos and photos and sorts them out for you into “shareable moments.” Now, the Gallery Doctor app does the opposite. However, to do so, Gallery Doctor uses the same machine learning gallery curation engine of the earlier app. This means that the new app can already find out what’s “bad” and what’s “good.”
The photos are analyzed by the app on the basis of factors like lighting, color and sharpness. With time, the app promises to get smarter. The more you use the app, the more it will find out about your personal tastes in the pictures you click.
CEO and co-founder of MyRoll, Ron Levy said that “We think of MyRoll and Gallery Doctor as yin and yang — MyRoll helps users discover their important photos amongst the clutter of their photo galleries, while Gallery Doctor helps to get rid of that clutter and free up space for more important memories.”
Users can now even manage their image gallery using their wrists. This is because recently MyRoll has made the app compatible with Android Wear smartwatches.
What about you? Are you going to use the Gallery Doctor app? Would you prefer automatic removal of your bad photos? We would love to hear your thoughts.
