Facebook is automatically altering your photos

Facebook's latest update doesn't have anything to do with your privacy or your news feed, but people are still getting upset. Apparently, the latest Facebook change has to do with a new automatic feature when you upload photos.

If you've uploaded a photo to Facebook from your smartphone or tablet recently, then you may or may not have noticed the new automatic feature that's altering your photos. It basically boosts contrast and fixes saturation and noise issues, which can actually help your photos, but you might not want them helped!

You won't really see a difference in most of your photos, but with the auto-enhance on every photo you upload, it could end up altering some of your photos for the worse.

You can easily turn off the auto-enhance by tapping the icon when you upload your photos, but not everyone has the time or patience for that. Thankfully, there's a way you can opt-out of the auto-enhance completely.

You can opt-out of the auto-enhance feature on your Facebook photos by going to the Facebook app on your smartphone or tablet. From there, navigate to More > Settings > Photos and Videos > Disable "enhance automatically."

Now your photos are back in your control. You can always use the enhance feature on your photos, but now it's whenever you choose to use it. Unfortunately, there is no opt-out option for Facebook on your computer. The option only applies to mobile photo uploads.
