Everyone often has to deal with simple photo editing on their smartphone. This article will take you to a whole new level of ownership of your phone and photo editing on it. For this purpose, we have compiled a list of necessary tools, as well as applications that can make your photos on your phone begin to play with new colors. The only thing to keep in mind is that the following ways of editing photos on your phone will not replace editing on a computer, but if you try hard enough, you can achieve something similar on your phone.
How to cut an unwanted object from a photo
To remove some objects from the photo, just click here. First, also open the picture, click “Remove Object” and then the tool “Brush”. In the settings, you can adjust the brush size for your convenience. Then select unnecessary objects and stroke them, then click Ok. The app uses the background to make the deletion as seamless as possible. If it doesn't, you can repeat: it should definitely work the second time.
How to adjust the focus on your phone
Modern phones like the iPhone XS can do this automatically. But if you don't have such a phone, there is a way out. Use “Photo Blur”: select the parts you want to blur, and then adjust the intensity of the blur.
How to adjust the color tones in a photo
One of the most common problems is improper color rendering. You can make this adjustment without resorting to special applications. For iPhone, select a photo and press “Edit”, then “Adjust” and “Color”. You'll see a slider at the bottom of the screen. With it, you can fix any imperfections in the photo. For Android, everything is very similar: press “Change”, “Color” and also adjust the picture to your liking.
This technique is good if you want to lighten only part of the photo. You can use the Snapseed app here. Open the image, tap the “Tools” button and select “Adjust Image”. Tap the slider icon at the bottom of the screen and select the function you want. Hint: “Basic” is useful for darkening bright areas, and “Shadows” is useful for brightening dark areas. If you press and hold one finger on the picture after changing, you can see the original version of the image.
