Just in time for the holiday season, Google is releasing two new ways to spice up your photos. In a Google+ post, software engineer Erik Murphy Chutorian revealed that the company was rolling out Twinkle and Snow features to add to its Auto-Awesome photo editing technology.

Here’s the new features explained:

  • Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we’ll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.
  • Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we’ll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.
