This App Can Choose Your Best Photos For You

This App Can Choose Your Best Photos For You

Android: If your phone’s storage is running low, you might want to start deleting some low-quality photos from your phone or backing it up with an app like Google Photos. Luckily the photo app EyeEm announced an update on Wednesday that uses artificial intelligence to pick out your best photos.

Though EyeEm is mostly a place where photographers sell their photos, this feature can be helpful for figuring out which photos to post to other social media and for sorting through photos you should delete.

EyeEm Selects is only available to Android users, but the company plans to add the feature to iPhone apps in an upcoming update. EyeEm has already created a similar app, called The Roll, on iOS. The Roll ranks your photos and adds keywords to them so you can search for your photos more easily. The app has since been discontinued in the United States, but many of its features are available on EyeEm Selects.

Picking out your best photos from your photostream isn’t a totally new feature — Google Photos has a similar feature and Gallery Doctor is an app that identifies bad or duplicate photos.

EyeEm has a collection of photos posted with EyeEm Selects. In the album, there are artsy photos of landscapes, but there are also low-quality selfies, and weirdly there’s a photo of eggs with a quote from the Bible inserted above.

It’s not a foolproof feature, but it does let you revisit old photos you’ve forgotten to post and it’s a helpful tool for when you’re unsure or when you don’t want to sort through all your photos.
