Samsung's Galaxy Enhance-X photo editing application is now available for some of the company's premium smartphones on the official Samsung Galaxy Store. The company launched a beta version of the app previously on Samsung's Galaxy S23 series.

The stable version is available for several Samsung flagship devices right now, but Samsung promises that it will make the app available for other Samsung smartphones in the future.

Galaxy Enhance-X is an image editing application that adds a range of image enhancement options to devices it is installed on. Among the features are tools to remove shadows, upscale photos, change HDR values or to fix moiré.

Samsung highlights a few use cases on its Newsroom website.

The application's "magic" feature, for example, uses AI and deep learning to "refine any visual noise, blur and low details". It may improve the image quality significantly because of that according to Samsung.

The HDR tool, on the other hand, "analyzes highlights, shading, brightness and contrast" to expand the range of the image and make "its lighting richer without sacrificing quality".

Several of the integrated tools have levels that defines the intensity of the change. Samsung smartphone users may simple tap on one of the levels displayed by a tool in the application to make adjustments and see previews of the changes immediately.

The upscale tool may increase the resolution of sub-1MP images by a factor of four without sacrificing quality according to Samsung's description of the feature.

Another feature of Samsung's official Galaxy Enhance-X app is the ability to improve older photos. The built-in AI analyzes the photo to improve clarity.

Galaxy Enhance X 3

Remove Shadows and Fix Moiré are two additional tools that all users have access to. The first removes any shadows that may have found their way onto a photo. It isolates shadows and replaces them automatically.

Fix Moiré  on the other hand detects "repetitive, wavy patterns" in images and removes those. These may occur when taking images of digital screens, e.g., a computer monitor.

Samsung Galaxy Enhance X 2

The photo editing application supports common features, such as fixing blur, sharpen or changing the brightness next to the advanced tools.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
