Microsoft Edge: Super resolution now with HD icon

Microsoft Edge Canary users can see a new HD icon in the browser’s address bar. The icon indicates that Edge has attempted to improve the quality of images displayed on the active web page.

Super Resolution, that’s the name of the feature, is currently being tested. Some Edge Canary users can see the HD icon in the address bar, others can’t.

Microsoft announced the integration of the feature into Microsoft Edge and Bing Maps in July. The feature’s full name, Turning Image Super Resolution, has been cut in Edge to just Super Resolution.

Turning Image Super Resolution was created to enhance low quality photos and images. The technology was developed by Microsoft and uses artificial intelligence to improve poor quality images.

Microsoft’s ultimate goal with this feature is to “permanently remove low-resolution images from the Internet by Turning Image Super Resolution.”

Some Edge Canary users may have been experiencing the automatic image enhancement feature for months. A relatively new feature is the display of the HD icon in the Edge address bar. Highlights that super resolution has been applied to images on the active web page.

A click on the icon provides a brief description of the feature and an option to disable it. A similar setting has been available in the Edge Privacy settings for some time.

Edge users can load edge://settings/privacy into their browser’s address bar and scroll down to Services to find the option there. Called “Enhance images” in Microsoft Edge, Microsoft describes it as “enhances images and improves color, brightness, and contrast.”

The option has a simple on/off switch. The HD icon that is displayed in the address bar makes switching more comfortable.

Super Resolution is an all or nothing feature at this point. It is either on and will be applied to all images that the algorithm considers low quality, or off, in which case it does not apply its optimizations to images.

Since the feature is in testing, it’s possible that Microsoft will add options to it, including a blocklist or permissions or finer-grained controls.

Closing words

Edge users who regularly browse websites with low-quality images may find this feature useful, as it seems to improve the quality of low-quality images on average. Whether this is enough to bring more users to Edge remains to be seen.

Now you: super resolution, is this for you?
