Samsung has the Expert RAW app for the skilled in photography, but the company’s wide audience means that not all Galaxy users know what all the dials are for. The new Galaxy Enhance-X app is for them an “AI photo upscaler and magic editor”.
As the name suggests, this is an editor for existing images rather than a camera app like Expert RAW. These can be photos you took with your phone but do not like how they turned out, or photos taken with older phones or cameras.
The AI-powered algorithms can remove blur or add some for a portrait effect, brighten up dark images or simulate HDR, they can sharpen images, remove reflections and also apply a beauty mode.
An interesting feature removes the moire effect that occurs when taking a picture of a digital screen. Some options allow you to specify the strength of the effect, and there is a sliding window that shows a before and after comparison. In addition, both the original and the processed image are stored in the gallery, so you can go back and try again if you decide you do not like the result.
Some of these effects are great for spice up photos taken with old, less skilled cameras. This also includes the AI upscaler, which can blast a low-resolution image to 2x or 3x its original size.
