New upgrades to Google Camera 7.5 can now allow users to save images in different directories. It also contains the use of a file naming scheme. Analysts spotted the leaked tips for the latest “Camera 7.5” models of Google Pixel smartphones.
Also, the camera app’s latest update will no longer store portrait images in a different tab. It will also change the portrait image name scheme for the file.
Now the photos begin with the same prefix and have separate suffixes. However, among the other pictures, the side effect of the updates would involve motion videos.
Why most people will appreciate Google Camera 7.5’s changes
Google’s update will impede the camera’s actions in saving shot photos to its own files. Older Google camera models can store pictures of users within different files inside the Camera tab. Users used to maually search every single folder before locating the photos they are searching for.
Often, the files are not sequential, creating a confusing scenario for those of different computers and others that used a simple backup option. Many Google users should welcome the development. The new naming system organizes the images’ problem.
The update places all the photos under DCIM/Camera tab. However, both would have an upgrade to the mix. Currently, you should even check it out if you have Android 11 as the update is side-loadable on betas.
In fact, the new photos soon would be entirely special. According to the new convention, portraits will now be called “PXL YYYYMMDD HMMSS.PORTRAIT-01.COVER.jpg.” The -01 shows the regular photo while the -02 shows the portrait version. This is also different than the old system of naming, which was quite frustrating indeed.
- Portrait: 00100trPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20191026124922209_COVER.jpg
- Blurred: 00000PORTRAIT_00000_BURST20191026124922209.jpg
- Portrait: PXL_20200820_143019420.PORTRAIT-01.COVER.jpg
- Non-blurred: PXL_20200820_143019420.PORTRAIT-02.ORIGINAL.jpg
Note that Google Camera 7.5’s new update will change traditional video labeling. As you can relate above, the naming of files was also streamlined as part of the wider shift to PXL.
The files are labeled “PXL YYYYMMDD HHMMSS.jpg,” regardless of the image type used that could, of course, vary.
For starters, when adding.jpg, motion images will include an “MP.” Motion Photos remove “MVIMG,” too. At the same time, RAW files obtain the same care and are separated only by the.dng edge. Videos often substitute “VID” and “GIF with “PXL.” So the only way to distinguish files is by watching the video type. As a result, while you’re operating with a file manager or even a tablet, you’ll be able to better recall every video.
As noted above, such improvements would only occur in the upgrade to Google Camera 7.5. It’s still in beta status right now, and is powered only by Android 11. We expect the latest device will be unveiled officially alongside the Pixel 5 announcement. Google also loses massive changes of newer Pixel phones to its GCam service. But at the very least, we only have two months to wait.
Other updates to the 7.5 camera include Night Light, High Res Focus, dual-exposure HDR+, Google Lens Tips, Playground and Top Image.
