If there’s one annoying thing about some photo editing apps is that the filters applied to photos are destructive, in the sense that once you’ve applied them, there’s no way of getting the original back should you wish to make changes or start a new project. The good news is that if you’re planning on upgrading your Android smartphone to Android 4.4 KitKat, you will be pleased to learn that the operating system update not only provides more photo editing functions and improves on it, but at the same time it will be non-destructive, allowing you to revert back to the original should you choose to do that.
The updated photo editor of Android 4.4 KitKat will include graduated filters, per-channel saturation controls, local adjustments, and more, while those who already know what they want can save presets that will allow them to apply a host of filters at once, saving them time, although we guess the end result would be a bunch of photos that somehow end up looking the same. In any case if you’d like to check out the Android 4.4 KitKat photo editor in action, you can check it out in the video above to learn more. For the photography enthusiast, we’re guessing the Android 4.4 KitKat update is an update that could not come any sooner.
