Earlier this month, the company added 12 new video effects to the Google Photos editing suite.

New effects include Dust Max, Black and White Film, Light Leak and more, Android Police reports.

These effects add a personal touch to users’ videos.

The Poster effect makes the video appear like folded paper, while the Layout effect provides a neat block-by-block look to selfie videos.

Meanwhile, last month it was reported that the tech giant was testing an on-demand cinematic effect feature in its photo sharing and storage service.

The cinematic photo maker was available under the “Utilities” option for some users in the Library tab of Google Photos.

With this feature, users can select a photo and specify the duration of the resulting video, and the app will create a slow motion zoom animation of that chosen image.
