The Google Pixel series has increased its emphasis on colors that accurately represent skin tones. Today at I/O 2022, Google is building on Real Tone by releasing an open-source framework and a new set of skin tone filters for Google Photos.
The functionality for filters that can alter previously taken images to better represent your skin tone will soon be added to Google Photos. These filters, which which begin releasing later this month, appropriately depict skin tones by using the Monk Scale employed by Pixels Real Tone. These effects should be usable on images captured with devices other than Google’s Pixel, such as iPhones and others.
The business is improving support for skin tones through Google Search in addition to Google Photos. Google Search will automatically display a few tone possibilities when a user conducts a relevant image search, such as one for bridal makeup looks.
Real Tone is still only available on Pixel phones, but Google is making the Monk Scale library it is built upon open-source at skintone.google .
