Google Photos adds Cinematic effect, more Memories options

Google Photos Cinematic effect

Google Photos has updated how it presents photos and memories with a new “Cinematic” effect. Cinematic photos use machine learning to predict the image’s depth and produces a simulated 3D representation (even if the original image doesn’t include depth information.

Samples of the new collage designs are below:
