If you’re the type of person who takes 5,200 photos of a slice of pizza and looks back at every single one of them, trying to pick out the perfect one to post for your 47 followers to bask in, things are about to get a lot easier for you.
The photo editing app EyeEm, just released a huge update that will look at all the photos in your gallery for you, and using “Computer vision technology,” will pick out the best ones.
EyeEm’s primary purpose has always been to help photographers copyright and sell their photos, so their technology is based off research on aesthetics and a curation that has a pretty good idea of what it takes for photos to sell.
With that kind of power at your fingertips, it only makes sense to use it for something more useful, like posting the most beautiful Instagram photos of tacos and boba.
I just tried the feature myself, and out of the 1,100 photos in my camera roll, it picked out about 17 solid ones, so the feature is pretty selective to say the least.
We’ll see if it really translates into more likes, though it can’t be any worse than what you already get.
