Pixels only save bokeh portrait photos now — this workaround gives you the original picture

Google Photos storage will soon count against your quota, which might be a reason why Google is trying to make its camera more economical. Following a big redesign of the Camera app, the developers introduced a new storage saver option, but that's not all they changed. Instead of saving two versions of a portrait photo, one with the signature artificially blurred background and one without it, the camera now only saves the blurred variant. But you can still get the photo with the original background if you really need it — here's how.

Google confirms future Pixels won't get unlimited Photos storage

One of the selling points for Pixel phones was unlimited original-quality backup to Google Photos, but starting with the Pixel 3a and Pixel 4, there was only an option for unlimited "high-quality" backup.

How to get Google Photos integration in OnePlus Camera instead of the stock Gallery app

How to get Google Photos integration in OnePlus Camera instead of the stock Gallery app

Anyone using a non-Pixel device like a OnePlus phone and Google Photos in conjunction probably knows that this can lead to some annoying issues. When you delete a photo in the camera right after taking it, it's possible that Google still uploads it, making you repeat the deletion process in Photos. The solution is simple on recent OnePlus phones: Just disable the pre-installed Gallery.

Pixel 4a camera sample gallery: Our first shots with Google's newest Pixel

Pixel 4a camera sample gallery: Our first shots with Google's newest Pixel

With smartphone manufacturers trying to jam more and more camera sensors into phones at every price point, it's become genuinely difficult to understand just what makes a good smartphone camera. With the Pixel 4a, Google reminds us that more is frequently no substitute for "better." With its single, aging 12.2MP Sony camera sensor used since the original Pixel in 2017, the 4a takes photos that will make an iPhone 11 Pro blush, let along the multi-cam monstrosities many budget brands are pumping out right now. While it's nothing special from a hardware perspective (the 4a itself, though, is quite special—read our review to find out why), the phenomenal Pixel processing bests phones that cost much more.
