If you own a Samsung phone, there is now another way to take great photos on your mobile phone, and it doesn’t cost you a penny.
The company recently released a new app called Galaxy Enhance-X, which you can download to Samsung phones using the Galaxy Store – it’s a free app but takes 123MB of free space (which really isn’t that much).
Galaxy Enhance-X is an AI upscaling and editing app, so it has a range of functions to help increase the resolution of your photos.
It can raise image resolution and quality, remove flaws in a scene, fix blurry elements in an image, and allows more traditional adjustments as well, like adjusting brightness and HDR (High Dynamic Range).
In a way, the Galaxy Enhance-X is Samsung’s spin on the mobile version of Photoshop, letting you fix errors in your shot in a way that the built-in Gallery app – or Google Photos – can’t. It is also a new and worthwhile free alternative to a number of powerful paid apps, saving users money without losing functionality.
Most Samsung phones are great for mobile photography, so you might not have many issues with the shots you take, right from the Camera app, but if you do, this new tool can help you.
Good for non-Samsung photos
Enhance-X works with files which picture On your Samsung phone, not just the shots taken with the device’s own camera; So it might be a really useful tool to fix the grainy photos you might have transferred from old phones.
The ability to provide this AI-enhanced editing of old photos is a powerful prospect, meaning that faded family photos can be given new life and memories you may want to touch to the point that they can be printed to a higher quality.
All you have to do is send these photos of yourself, either using cloud storage, a USB cable, wirelessly or via a messaging app, and you’ll then be able to upscale and enhance them with AI, just like any other shot already on your phone.
This isn’t a huge upgrade that will change the way you use your Samsung Galaxy, but we can see its potential as popular photography gadgets. And with the relatively small download size, there’s no harm in having it on your device – it just might make shots from your great camera phone even better.
