Google has been offering the so-called top photo (top photo) feature since the Pixel 3, which is expanding and changing these days. Now there are two options for a top photo. On the one hand, keep using normal photos, while the motion picture function is activated at the same time. In hindsight, Google Photos may recommend a different shot than the “top photo”, because due to the movie clip feature, a video was created with many individual images during the photo capture.

Superior photo in two versions with different image quality

The top photo is now also being expanded to include short Google videos, Android Police reports even before the new feature is available. For a while now, you have been able to create short videos by holding down the shutter button in photo mode. For this top photo is also presented. From these short videos, Google will suggest a good photo if we want, for example, the person filmed with eyes open instead of closed.

But there is a difference that colleagues determine based on the resolution of the image. While the first variant with photos for motion pictures outputs the top photos at 2048 x 1536 pixels, the top photos for short videos are only output at a maximum of 1024 x 768 pixels. For this reason, colleagues always recommend just taking a simple photo with a movie clip and then selecting a higher photo if necessary, because that offers better quality.
