HTC Gallery

HTC has released an update to its HTC Gallery app in the Google Play Store that adds a number of new features to the photo application, including a way to view photos and videos on the cloud and a new Face Fusion editor.

HTC has this to say about these two new features:

Just connect your Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr and Google Drive accounts to see your favorite memories in one convenient place. There's no need to worry about filling your phone's storage space because Cloud Gallery only uses space-saving thumbnail images for browsing. You can choose to download the full-size photo or video from the cloud anytime. Using this feature doesn't upload your local content to your online accounts.

If you're feeling slightly silly, check out the Face Fusion photo editor. It lets you blend the features of two faces together to create an entirely new person. Try blending your best selfie with a snapshot of a celebrity.

In addition, the new HTC Gallery version has these new features:

  • Tag view
  • Tag images on your phone with keywords
  • Search files on your phone by tag
  • See and search tags from Facebook and Flickr (coming soon in some regions)
  • Updated timeline layout for feed view and grid view
  • Improvements

The new cloud photo viewing feature is not available in all regions yet. Also, keep in mind this app is strictly for some HTC smartphones such as the HTC One M8.
