Microsoft has started pushing out the latest improvements to the Windows 10 photos app to most users on the Windows 10 Creators Update.
The update brings some useful new features, such as the ability to search for photos by theme or content, e.g. food, new tagging options and the biggest change, the ability to create a video from your photos, which Microsoft calls a new form of story telling.
Using the new app in Windows 10, users will be able to create memories out of their photos and videos. The app utilizes Microsoft’s Graph service to automatically create memories using your photos and videos. These memories can be shared as a video with cinematic transitions, a soundtrack, as well as a theme which is pretty neat. The app will likely come with a set of different sounds tracks and themes, but users might be able to create their own themes or use their own soundtrack for a memory.
The app has a lot of advanced features — for instance, you can select a star for your memory and it will automatically focus them in a video and follow them around in the edited memory. There’s even a memory editor that lets you edit the memory itself right within the app.
What’s really cool about this new app is the fact that users can create mixed reality content with their photos and videos. The app will let users insert 3D objects into their photos and videos, which they can then share in a memory. The new app will also utilize Microsoft’s new Fluent Design System that was announced earlier at Build 2017.
