Hey MIUIers,
Xiaomi unveiled its next version of there custom skin -MIUI 8 in India on 30th June with the Features you imagined in your dream os. It have features like cloned apps, Second space that let you organize two personalities in a single smartphone. MIUI 8 also have amazing features like wallpaper carousel, Mi Lanting Font, long screenshots etc. One of them is the New Gallery App itself and today we are going to talk about it.
Gallery app is also one of the most important area of MIUI ,which gets timely updates for stability and features. But in MIUI 8 Xiaomi have redesigned the Gallery App to make it more user friendly ,quick, smart and feature rich.

The MIUI 8 Gallery is heavily Revamped with the following new features and Optimizations.

  • New Album Representation
  • New Easy Sharing Method
  • Share Pics In Original Resolution
  • New Animation While Selecring Pics
  • New Image Editing Options (Doodle, adjust, stickers,crop,filters).
  • New Video Editing Options (Filter , trim ,advanced,text,audio).
  • New Screenshots Preview
  • New Panorama Preview
  • Keep Thumbnails And Save Upto 90% Storage
  • "GIF" Logo On Gifs's And a lot more :')

Album Selection
Album section are more organised ,neat and clean now with camera clicks on one side . Videos, screenshots and panorama's on other side . And the rest albums in others section.

Easy Sharing
The very first change in MIUI 8 gallery you will probably see is the Sharing Image animation.You can swipe horizontally to select multiple images. Now you can just swipe up to share the beautiful pics over the popular communication apps like
WhatsApp, Facebook , telegram , QQ.

Share Pics In Original Resolution
Yes you heard it right. Gone are the days when you shared pics which got blurry. Now in MIUI 8 you can also share the pics in original resolution. This feature is not implemented by default. You just have to tick the original file circle while sharing pics.

Animation While Selecting Pics
In MIUI 8 , we now have a whole new animation While Selecting Pics. It now shows the number of pics you have selected or being selected which is quite nice in my opinion .We all forget the number of pics selected in older versions of MIUI which is not a problem from now onwards.

Image Editing Options In Gallery
Of you go to the editing panel , you will find a whole lot more to experience. The editing feature in MIUI 8 are supposed to be supported by Camera 360 app.

Doodle : You can write, draw and, mark and doodle on the pic on the spot.We can also zoom in to the pic for accurate doodling.

Adjust: To adjust contrast ratio ,Broghtness and similar aspects of the photo.
Stickers : To add funky , cool stickers to the Pic.
Filter: To filter the image with cool colour tints like bluish and pinkish.
Crop: To crop the image. You can even rotate the image for cropping purposes.

Video Editing Options
Like the cool new features and optimizations in the image editing software in MIUI 8 there is a lot more to experience in video editing options too.

Filter : To give the video a preloaded filter like rock, blush.
Trim : To Crop The Video and eliminate unwanted scenes.
Advanced : To download the expert video editing app "Kinemaster".
Text: To add text to your video.
Audio: To add background audios to your video.

Screenshot Image Preview
Ever wondered that viewing screenshots in the gallery can be a headache. The screenshots are rectangular, but the preview in the gallery was square. So to view it we have to open it. In MIUI 8 ,this is not a problem now. The screenshots preview are rectangular now.

Panorama Preview
Same goes with the panorama's also. We had to open the panorama to really see it as they are usually rectangular and the preview we got were square. In MIUI 8 the panorama preview is also Rectangular as it is now.

Other Cool Optimizations
(1.) You will be notified whether your pictures are synced in a more friendly manner.
(2.) Similar images will be grouped together instead
of showing you individual pics in the gallery.
(3.) Ever wondered what eats up your device storage. Well the answer is easy-going Photos.

In MIUI 8 there is a new feature as well which will help in keeping the thumnails of your pic on your phone while the original one will be available in the cloud storage. This feature reportedly saves 90% of your smartphones storage. Cool huh.

(4.) Gif's will have a "GIF" logo on the preview so you can identify right after seeing the preview

Last words
These all are the add on to the gallery app in MIUI 8 which can be welcomed warmly as these all feature usefull and productive. With MIUI 8 Gallery App there's no need to install other third party app to edit your photos anymore ! A powerful hub for photos and videos .These small and important features and optimizations are the reason why MIUI is far ahead of any other OS available .
