Beginning the next week, using a Chromebook to make changes to a PDF will be a breeze. Within the Gallery app itself, users will have the capability to underline text, fill out forms, sign papers, and make text annotations.
On Chromebooks, the Gallery software is pre-installed and ready to use for editing photos. It functions in a manner analogous to that of the Images app on Windows and is the location where a collection of photos initially shows when you open it. The vast majority of Chromebooks do not come pre-installed with a PDF editor by default, and although there are free third-party solutions, their functionality is typically restricted, and editing straight in Gallery seems like it would require a lot less work overall.
Students, a group in which Chromebooks are popular, might benefit significantly from this in a number of ways. Not only will it be simpler for them to annotate readings and assignments, but they will also be able to do so using handwritten notes taken in class (which can be exported as a PDF from the Cursive app in ChromeOS).
This autumn, Google plans to roll out a number of additional features for Chromebooks, one of which is a “new movie editor and video editing tools” in Google Photos. This feature will initially be made available for Chromebooks. Users will be able to construct a video out of the clips and photographs that are kept on their account “with just a few touches” (also known as “with just a few taps”). It would appear that all you need to do is choose a topic and certain themes (such as “Love Story,” “Pet Movie,” etc.), and Google will take care of the rest.
Those who choose a higher level of control will also have the option to utilise a “movie editor” that is more sophisticated in order to rearrange clips, apply filters, and make adjustments to parameters such as brightness, contrast, and white point.
Additional capabilities will be added to Google Photos in August, including dark and light themes, as well as the ability to integrate wallpaper.
