Puparazzi alert: five tips for your pet photos

April 11th, 2018

If you’re a pet owner, you probably live every day like it’s National Pet Day. But to honor the holiday today, we’ve put together a few pet-tential ways you can celebrate them with Google Photos:

1. A photo book of your pet, created just for you

Starting this week, if you take a lot of photos of your cat or dog, the Google Photos app may automatically create a photo book starring your pet. We use machine learning to save you time by selecting the best photos of your four-legged friend and laying them out in a photo book. For those of you in the U.S. or Canada, all you have to do is decide if you want a hardcover or softcover book, and then order.

2. Identify popular breeds with Google Lens Recently, we made Google Lens preview available in Google Photos across Android and iOS. Now, when you take a photo of an animal—like a cute cat or dog—you can use Lens to help identify its breed and get more information.

3. Create a movie dedicated to your furry friend Your pet may have a leading role in your life, but it’s time to show the rest of the world that your animal is a star. If your pet is ready for a big screen debut, open your Google Photos app, go to the Assistant tab, and click on the movie button. Then, if available, choose the Meow Movie or Doggie Movie option, select your pet, and we’ll compile the best photos of your four-legged pal into a movie, set to pet-themed music.

For the 150th anniversary of the SF SPCA, we put together a special Meow Movie for some of their fabulous felines who need a home.

4. Label your pet to easily find photos of them In most countries, you can label your cats and dogs so that you can search to quickly find photos of them. Or even better, you can find photos of that one time you dressed them up for Halloween by searching “Oliver hat” or pictures of them in the park by searching “Oliver park.”

5. Search by breed and emoji Speaking of fast ways to find photos of your pets, you can also search by breed, species, or emoji—tryor. Quickly search “pitbull” to rediscover photos of your sister’s cute canine, or “gecko” to pull up pics of that cool lizard your friend has.
