Google Photos’s Magic Editor Has Content Guardrails

Aamir Siddiqui, Android Authority:

Summarizing the strings above, it seems Magic Editor will refuse to edit:

  • Photos of ID cards, receipts, and other documents that violate Google’s GenAI terms.
  • Images with personally identifiable information.
  • Human faces and body parts.
  • Large selections or selections that need a lot of data to be generated.

Reminiscent of the way that photocopiers and image editing apps like Photoshop try (and largely succeed) at not allowing you to edit or manipulate images of currency.
