iPhone, Tutorials

Are you looking to add a touch of creativity to your iPhone photos? One way to do this is by blurring images.

Blurring can help create a dreamy and artistic effect, making your photos stand out. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of blurring images on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To get started, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is represented by a colorful flower icon.

Step 2: Select the Image

Once you have opened the Photos app, browse through your albums or camera roll to select the image you want to blur. Tap on the image to open it in full screen.

Step 3: Tap Edit

With the image open, tap on the “Edit” button located at the top right corner of the screen. This will bring up a menu of editing options.

Step 4: Access Blur Tools

In the editing menu, you will find several options for enhancing your photo. To access blur tools, tap on the icon that looks like three overlapping circles. This is located at the bottom right corner of the screen.


  • Adjust intensity: By default, iOS applies a moderate amount of blur to your photo. You can adjust this intensity level by swiping left or right on the photo with your finger.
  • Selective blur: If you only want to blur a specific part of your photo, use your finger to highlight that area. iOS will automatically detect and apply blur only within that region.

Step 5: Save the Blurred Image

Once you are satisfied with the blur effect, tap on the “Done” button at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will save your changes and create a new version of the photo with the applied blur effect.


  • Compare original and edited versions: To compare the original and edited versions of your photo, press and hold on the image in your camera roll. This will display both versions side by side.

That’s it! You have successfully blurred an image on your iPhone using built-in editing tools.

Feel free to experiment with different images and intensity levels to achieve your desired effect. Happy blurring!

By following these simple steps, you can easily add a touch of creativity to your photos by blurring them on your iPhone. Whether you want to create a soft background or emphasize a specific subject, blurring can help you achieve stunning results. So go ahead, give it a try, and let your artistic side shine!
