Basics first: Mastering iPhone editing

While the iPhone camera captures stunning images, sometimes a little editing is needed to truly make your photos pop. Thankfully, the Photos app comes equipped with a suite of editing tools that allow you to make basic adjustments and give your shots that extra oomph.

Getting started on iPhone:

Start with the fundamentals directly on your iPhone:

  • Cropping and orientation: Adjust the frame by cropping; straighten or flip your photo to get the perfect alignment.
  • Exposure and color adjustment: Modify exposure, brightness, and contrast to bring out the best in your photos. Tweak saturation and warmth to enhance colors or create a mood.
