Do selfie enthusiasts tend to imagine themselves more beautiful than they actually are? Google explains that it has conducted several studies which have shown that the use of correction filters, sometimes applied automatically to faces, can have a negative impact on the well-being and mental health of its users.
To limit this risk and prevent these changes from having a negative effect on its users, the Mountain View company has just announced that filters will henceforth be disabled by default in its Camera application.
This new operation will first be applied to the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. The Camera application will no longer automatically retouch the faces detected in the captured photos, but will give you the choice to apply or not these corrections. manually.
And if you ever decide to use these automatic retouching effects, the Camera app will display information explaining how the edits are made and what changes it will make to your image.
