Beijing, July 30, 2015 – Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today released Lenovo™ Photo Master 2.0 to improve and simplify the photo editing, storing and sharing experience for hobbyist photographers. The modern photo library is paired with powerful, easy-to-use editing and navigation tools that intuitively ensure “chief memory officers” always put their best picture forward.
The new software ensures treasured memories can be easily edited to perfection by even the most novice photographers – with a user experience so natural and seamless it becomes addictive. Smart new features that improve the overall photo management experience for the amateur photographer include Auto Face Replace, OneKey Beautifier, Smart Event Sort and Just Visiting1.
Preloaded on select Lenovo™ YOGA™ and ideapad™ laptops coming out this month2, the upgraded Photo Master 2.0 offers smart new ways to improve, organize and share photos.
Auto Face Replace Fixes Faces
Auto Face Replace technology is a handy consumer photo-editing “recommendation” tool. The technology is capable of fixing facial features in seemingly unusable group photos by creating the best photo from a series of shots. Additionally, it can make a recommendation for users to swap and edit the faces within group photos by replacing them with faces from other photos. The auto-swapping capabilities and other new improvements in Photo Master 2.0 make this version of the photo editing and management software tool a standout for photo enthusiasts and hobbyists who are eager to effortlessly make the most of each shot.
Instead of tossing out pictures because one person’s eyes were closed or forgot to smile, Photo Master 2.0 leverages facial recognition algorithms to “surgically” replace unwanted facial outcomes with more appealing ones from other photos. The result is a perfect image from every group shot. From wedding events to vacations and family photo sessions, Auto Face Replace ensures that photographic efforts are more likely to produce ideal images.
In response to the explosion of selfie-sharing and photo-based social networks, Photo Master 2.0 includes several one-click editing options for beautifying people and scenery. With unique and practical features such as Eye Enlarger, Blemish Removal, Skin Toner, and Eye Bag Removal, subjects in photos can receive a digital makeover in just seconds. The end result makes everyone look better, without complicated photo adjustments or knowledge of advanced photo editing techniques.
Tools for Photo Sharing
Effortlessly create a multimedia story from photo archives, including professional-quality photo collages and slideshows, with the help of Smart Event Sorting. It automatically organizes photos into collections and enables the sharer to simply pick a favorite song or audio track and bring a photo series instantly to life. The finished slideshow or photos can be quickly exported or shared via social media seamlessly from within the application.
