Google Photos now gets updated with a new feature that allows users to edit images faster.

The update gives users a slew of powerful editing tools. For instance, the app now gets a variety of filters such as Mars, Ceres and Venus. Users can also change the aspect ratio as they can choose from Original, Square, 16:9 and 4:3. They can also swipe between images and still be in the edit mode.

“You can now navigate between photos while staying in editing mode. Your edits will automatically save, and undoing them is simple -- just click Revert to Original,” said the company in a post on Google Plus.

Google Photos was made into a standalone app last year, which was earlier a part of Google Plus. The service offers unlimited storage space where users can store photos.

Last month, Google announced its plans to shut Picasa, primarily to shift focus to the new Google Photos service launched a year ago. The company said that time that data stored on Picasa web albums will be automatically transferred to a user’s Google Photos account starting May 1, 2016.
