Facebook Now Auto-Enhancing Your Smartphone Photos



Ready to see an improvement in all of your Facebook friends’ snaps? Facebook is rolling out a new auto-enhance feature for its mobile app that will automatically correct things like light, shadows, and clarity in your smartphone shots.

TechCrunch reports that the feature comes with a single simple slider that allows you to manually control the amount of auto-enhancement. Photos are auto-enhanced by default, but you can revert to your original shot if you won’t have any of that.

The goal of the new tool is to make it easier to share well-lit and visually acceptable shots through the service on the go without having to fiddle too much with processing your photos prior to uploading.


Things are heating up in the battle for mobile photo sharing. As you might remember, Google added auto enhancing to its service last year. And just yesterday, Instagram added its first new filters in two years.

You can start using the new Facebook auto-enhance feature now in the latest version of the service’s iOS app. If you’re on Android, the tool should be rolled out to you shortly.
