Google keeps on adding new features to its Photos app, and now, there are two new editing tools to use: Sharpen and Denoise. These tools help you enhance the quality of your photos in the Google Photos app on your mobile device

In this guide, you’ll find out what these tools are and how you can use them in the Photos app.

What Are the Sharpen and Denoise Tools?

If you use Google Photos on your smartphone, you probably already know that the app already has some editing tools in it. These new Sharpen and Denoise tools are just an extra addition to the existing tools you may already be using.

With the Sharpen tool, you can make your images look clearer. Basically, this tool helps you improve the sharpness of your photos. There’s a range from 0 to 100 that you can use to define your photo’s sharpness.

The other tool is called Denoise. As the name suggests, this tool helps you remove the noise (grain) from your photos. Again, there’s a 0 to 100 range that you can use to define how much you want to denoise the picture.

Regardless of what tool you use, you’re going to have to experiment with various levels to get the best results. Simply keep moving the slider until you get the results you want.
