So I’ve sold my soul to Google and uploaded all my photos to Google Photos. It’s pretty amazing what it does auto tagging things including people, places and scenes (like “beach” or “snow”) beyond their location.
The assistant thingy auto generates little flash backs to different years in the past “on this day” type of stuff as well as creates collages, little videos of events etc etc.
But the question is, can you control that at all?
For example, it created a video called “they grow up so fast” of one of my kids. It was short video clips which it’s auto tagged of him over the last year, a couple of minutes long with background music and all. It’s pretty awesome for something I had to put zero effort into.
What would be great is being able to tell it to generate the same thing for each of my other kids… or pick a different time period… or event or whatever then let it’s do it’s magic and spit out a video for me??
Sure I could put effort in and do it myself manually (my wife already creates a photo book (actually two) each year showing our adventures over the year that we can sit and flick through)… but when magic makes it happen… that’s cool
