Microsoft have been slowly modernising the appearance of the Windows 10 user interface by implementing a number of small changes.

However, these fluent design changes have been taken some time to come to Microsoft’s most popular built-in app- the Photos application.

Designer Michael West is keen to demonstrate how his Fluent Design changes will improve the appearance of the application.

In this design, the following changes have been implemented:

  • The search bar has moved to the right
  • The carousel of the photo folder is in fluent design
  • Controls have been moved to the top of the window bar

Since the controls are arranged much more clearly, the functionality of the app should improve too.

Here’s the current design of the app for comparison:
