After starting to allow users to upload Stories from desktop recently, Facebook has now also added a feature that allows users on desktop to edit their photos before uploading.
Not that many people use Facebook Stories, right? That might be the case, yet Facebook is far from allowing its Snapchat clone to go to waste. And despite what you might think, it’s not giving up just yet. In an attempt to liven things up a bit and breathe new life into its Stories, Facebook even started allowing users to upload stories from desktop. Now, it’s introducing a photo-editing feature on desktop as well.
When uploading an image to a Facebook Story, you can now simply click on the “Edit Photo” button found in the bottom-right corner. The new feature looks exactly like one you use to edit a ordinary image you’ve just uploaded on Facebook, but it also allows you to add text with different fonts and colours, stickers, and filters. Nothing fancy, but still semi-useful. If of course you even use Facebook Stories.
Facebook has had some trouble getting traction on its Stories, despite Instagram and Snapchat’s versions being very popular. Yet, the company is continuing build on it and add features. Right now, there is no way of knowing exactly what’s in Facebook’s plans regarding the future of the feature on its platform.
