Windows 11 Photos App Gets Support for Background Blur and Motion Photo

Microsoft is rolling out two big updates for Windows 11 Photos app. You can now blur your background using the Windows 11 Photos app. There is also a new Snipping Tool, which now allows you to copy text from your screen captures.

If you wanna give this a try, open a photo in Edit mode and you can select the new Background Blur option. The Photos app will do the heavy lifting, and highlight your subject, applying the blur effect. If you want, you can change the intensity by choosing Blue Intensity. You can further tweak the look of the image with the Brush Tool, to reduce blurred areas, or make it stronger.

Additionally, Microsoft has also added content search for photos that appear in the Photos app that might have been stored in OneDrive personal accounts. You can use the search bar at the top to look for things. Additionally, you can search for where the photo was taken, too.

Moreover, the latest update also includes support for Samsung and Google Motion Photo and touch support in slideshows. Also, the images no longer look pixilated when zooming in by a large factor.

Microsoft also rolled out separate updates for the Snipping Tool and Phone Link in the Canary and Dev channels. Snipping tool version 11.2308.33.0 can now detect the text in your captured screenshots. This helps in copying and pasting text you might have in an image. You can do this by clicking the Text Actions button in the toolbar to show selectable text. Text Actions even now has an option for you to edit sensitive information in screenshots.

Lastly, Microsoft is also introducing the ability to access and edit photos from your Android device on your PC.
