Samsung has Expert RAW app for experienced photographers, but the company’s broad audience means that not every Galaxy user knows what all the watch faces are for. The new Galaxy Enhance-X app, “AI photo upscaler and magic editor”, is for them.
As the name suggests, this is an editor for existing photos rather than a camera app like Expert RAW. It could be photos you took with your phone but don’t like how they turned out, or photos taken with older phones or cameras.
Algorithms powered by artificial intelligence can remove blur or add some for a portrait effect, lighten dark photos or simulate HDR, can sharpen images, remove reflections and also use Beauty mode.
One interesting feature removes the moiré effect that occurs when shooting a digital screen. Some options allow you to adjust the strength of the effect and there is a sliding window that shows a Before and After comparison. Both the original and processed image are also saved in the gallery, so you can go back and try again if you decide you don’t like the result.
Some of these effects are nice for enhancing photos taken with older, less powerful cameras. This also includes an AI upscaler that can blow up a low resolution image to 2x or 3x its original size.
