Native photo editing coming to Ice Cream Sandwich?


Ready for the first Ice Cream Sandwich rumor/leak of the day? (This close to the unveiling, today just might get crazy). Some leaked icons rumored to be from the native gallery app in Ice Cream Sandwich have surfaced online, pointing toward some rather handy built-in photo editing options in the next major release of Android.

According to the leak, Ice Cream Sandwich will add some simple photo editing tools for adjustments to color, exposure level, dimensions and more. There’s lots of quick fixes for things like blurriness and redeye, along with a wide array of common effects including cross process, sepia, lomo-ish, vignette, grayscale, fisheye and autofix.

There’s no telling if any or all of these features will make their way into the release version of Ice Cream Sandwich, but it means that Google is at least considering it. With some robust photo editing software already in the Market, and more like PhotoShop Touch coming, it will be interesting to see how native editing tools will stand up.

    Don’t understand why anyoje would waste their time with photo editing software when the cameras are only 5-8 megapixel. They aren’t high resolution enough for anything past viewing on a 4″ screen anyhow. If that’s the biggest thing to come for Android, than I’ll be glad to just stay with froyo.

      Are you serious? 5-8 Megapixel isn’t high enough resolution? I would say that 90% of the people I know are constantly uploading pictures from their Galaxy S and iphones to Facebook and they look perfectly fine. Its not editing software in terms of Photoshop, mostly things like adjusting color and brightness.

      You should see some of the pictures my Samsung Vibrant takes. I usually import them into Picsay Pro and modify the colors just slightly before posting them

      A good 5-8mp photo can be blown up to A3 paper size without looking bad.
