Currently we find layers of software in which we can find different options to give a totally different touch to the images we take with our smartphone. One of the best examples, which we are going to talk about today, is the Gallery application that Xiaomi integrates in all its smartphones. Not only because it offers us the fact of viewing our photographs and videos, but we can also edit them in our own style thanks to its wide variety of tools.
In addition, in recent years, we have seen how the Chinese firm has not only focused on improving the photographic section of its terminals, but its native MIUI applications have also grown. And all with the aim that its users have to stop having third-party apps for this. Therefore, with the passage of time and updates, the Gallery application has become much more complete. This is why we have compiled the best adjustments that you can carry out in your terminals so that you can achieve the best image editing , as if you were true experts.
Change the sky of your photos
One of the first essential adjustments that we must take into account within the Gallery of this manufacturer’s mobiles is the fact of being able to edit the skies of the images. Yes, heaven, because it will let us modify it in a totally simple way and with different options.
This configuration was given thanks to the arrival of MIUI 12 , since with this version a great variety of modifications were introduced in this system app. Among these is the possibility of modifying, both statically and dynamically, the sky of any image that we have on the mobile reel.
For this, we will only need to have this version of the software layer of the Chinese firm. And the rest of the work will be done by the artificial intelligence, as it is in charge of recognizing the sky of the snapshot that we import and then, it will change its clouds, the sun and even make it look like night.
In order to modify and edit the sky of a photo from this MIUI application we must follow the following steps:
- Access this app and enter the photo you want to edit.
- After this, click on the edit button and enter the Sky section.
- Then, we will have a tool in which we can choose the sky filter that best suits what we are looking for. Among these, we will find: Sunny, Afternoon, Night or Dynamic.
Customize the watermark
In addition to being able to change the sky design from the Xiaomi Gallery , we also find a rather curious functionality. This tool will allow us to add a custom watermark to each image, or remove it directly. Well, as many of you already know, this text is added by default by the company in each new photo we take. But, fortunately, we can also personalize it, adding our own personal touch, either by putting our brand or name.
And not only this, but it will also let us add both icons and other special characters. So we will be turning the watermark into something like our own signature in each new snapshot we take. Therefore, so that we can personalize this watermark that the firm adds in each image. For this we will have to perform the following steps:
- Access the Camera app and enter its settings.
- When you’re inside, look for the Watermark option and click on the Custom Watermark option.
From this section you will leave us the fact of personalizing said brand. So we can add both the text that we want and any type of emoji. Unfortunately, for now, MIUI does not have an option to help us remove this mark from an image that has already been taken. That is, if we do not want to have this type of text in our images, we will have to deactivate it in the Watermark option of the device.
Remove objects and people from images
Among the many other possibilities that we find within the editor of this MIUI system app is the Delete option. For those who do not know this tool, the truth is that thanks to the use of artificial intelligence and, taking into account both the colors and the texture of an image, it allows us to eliminate any object or person that we do not want to appear in the snapshot.
Therefore, there is no doubt that the Gallery of the Asian firm, starting with MIUI 12 , became a very complete tool. Now is the time to move on to removing objects, people or any other element from an image using the editor that the company includes in its terminals with this version of its software layer. To do this, you will have to do the following:
- Go back to the Gallery of your mobile and select the image you want to edit.
- After this, click on the edit button and look for the Delete option.
- Afterwards, we will only have to paint or shade the object , person or other element to be eliminated. This way, the editor can remove it. And we recommend you to make soft shading on the object to be removed.
MIUI filters and effects
If before we talked to you that with the Xiaomi customization layer we can change the sky of our images, the truth is that the thing does not stop there. From within the Gallery of these mobile devices we can easily find more than 50 filters that can be applied to any image that we have saved on the reel of our smartphone.
And the best of all is that, in this way, we will have to avoid downloading any third-party software. Well, to be able to apply one or the other, the steps to follow are really simple. To do this, we will only have to enter the Gallery app and select an image that we want to edit.
Afterwards, it will be necessary to click on the edit option so that all the tools that MIUI makes available to us are displayed. Then, we will have to access Filters, where we will find the different possibilities that we can give to the images. It even has an automatic function with which we will not have to worry ourselves about the photo we have selected. For this, we must click on the Beauty Mode tool .
Blend everything you want
We will also have a tool that will allow us to achieve greater editing as true experts. We refer to the option of pixelating or blurring any part of a photograph that we do not want to be recognized, be it a house, a person’s face or a vehicle license plate.
To carry out this, within the app we are talking about today, it has the Mosaic functionality. With this we can blur any area that we want using simply a brush. Although it will also let us delete this element, as we have seen in the previous section.
Therefore, if we want to hide any part of an image, be it a face, a text or any other object, we just have to follow the following steps:
- Enter the Gallery and click on the image you want to modify.
- After this, enter the editing options and look for the Mosaic mode .
- Then, you just have to paint the area you want to pixelate with the style that you like the most.
Once you have followed all these steps, you will have been able to quickly and easily hide certain areas of a photograph. And the best of all is that this functionality that they have called Mosaic, offers us various styles and motifs, so that we can always give it our personal touch.
