Edge to get a photo editor

by on11 July 2022

Edit photos directly 

Team Vole is working on a modification to the Microsoft Edge browser might one day allow users to edit photos directly from the right-click option online.

The feature is an A/B testing option that can be downloaded for the latest Microsoft Edge Canary update once it becomes available. It opens a built-in editor in the browser, allowing you to edit images before saving them to your computer.

The editor is very similar to the standard Photos app in Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems. It includes Crop, Adjustment, Filter, and Markup features, as well as a spot fix tool and brightness and exposure adjustments, among other functions, OnMSFT noted.

The editor joins many contextual features that Microsoft is adding to its Edge browser for more convenient use. Some other features include a games menu, a built-in calculator, unit converter, and speed tester.

Vole is apparently working on a way to save power on your snoozing tabls/ Microsoft shared on its Microsoft Edge browser Dev Twitter in June that its Sleeping Tabs tool saved users 273,000TB of RAM in the 28 days between May 9 and June 6. That equated to approximately 40MB of memory per tab of the 6 billion tabs tested, the company added.
