Launched with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the reimagined Photos app helps you create videos of your memories with a soundtrack, theme and cinematic transitions. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert photographer and videographer, Photos makes it easy to get started. With today’s update, you can take your filmmaking to the next level by selecting yourself or nominating someone to be the star in your automatically generated creation. Photos will then build a video around the person you choose, pulling in relevant photos and videos, zooming in on your star, and choosing an appropriate theme.
The new feature allows you to follow your child across the field in a montage of their soccer game, or highlight a friend at their birthday party reel. You can also choose yourself and start working on your award acceptance speech.
I really feel that all these feature updates to photos are Microsoft’s way of chasing the market share and success Apple has had in this area of desktop software. If we don’t add these features someone could jump to a mac.
