A fresh update is rolling out to the Windows 10 Photos app for PC users, bringing along inking support and more. While this update has been in the oven since October for Insiders, it's now rolling out to everyone with version number 16.1111.10000.0.
Alongside inking and pen support — which is a big deal in and of itself — this update includes new filters for some extra editing mojo. Here's a look at the changelog that shows after the update:
- New Look: Plus, you can set Photos to light or dark mode.
- Draw on Anything: And share the animated ink!
- Better Editing: Check out our new filters!
Do note that, while the changelog mentions a new light mode, that actually appeared in a prior build. The inking features and new filters are indeed new, however.
If you're interested in checking out the new inking features, you'll now be able to choose from from a marker, pen, or pencil tool and write in a number of different colors. This lets you add a little extra pizazz to a photo, or simply jot down notes.
Have you had an opportunity to check out the new inking features and filters in the Photos app yet? Let us know what you think in the comments!
