Are you looking to add a personal touch to your photos on your iPhone? Drawing on photos can be a fun and creative way to express yourself.

Whether you want to highlight something specific or add some doodles, the iPhone offers several easy-to-use tools for drawing on your photos. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Choose a Photo

First, open the Photos app on your iPhone and select the photo you want to draw on. You can choose any photo from your Camera Roll or Albums.

Step 2: Edit the Photo

Once you have chosen the photo, tap on the “Edit” button located at the top right corner of the screen.

Adding Markup

Now, tap on the three dots (•••) icon at the bottom of the screen and select “Markup” from the options.

Step 3: Access Drawing Tools

In Markup mode, you will find various drawing tools at the bottom of your screen. These tools include:

  • Pencil: Use this tool to draw freehand lines with different colors and thicknesses.
  • Pen: Similar to a pencil but with smoother lines.
  • Highlighter: Add emphasis by highlighting specific areas of your photo.
  • Erase: Remove any mistakes or unwanted drawings.

Step 4: Start Drawing

To begin drawing on your photo, simply select a tool from the bottom toolbar and start using your finger or stylus to draw on the screen. You can change the color and thickness of your lines by tapping on the corresponding icons at the bottom of the screen.

Zoom In for Precision

If you require more precision, you can use the pinch-to-zoom gesture to zoom in on your photo. This allows you to draw with greater accuracy and attention to detail.

Step 5: Edit or Remove Drawings

If you want to edit or remove any part of your drawing, simply select the “Erase” tool and swipe over the area you want to erase. To undo any changes, tap on the arrow icon located at the top left corner of your screen.

Step 6: Save Your Drawing

Once you are satisfied with your drawing, tap on “Done” at the bottom right corner of your screen. You will be taken back to the editing mode in Photos app.

Save a Copy

If you want to keep a copy of both the original photo and the edited version with drawings, tap on “Save as New Photo.” This way, you will have two separate versions of your photo – one without drawings and one with drawings.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to draw on photos using Markup on your iPhone. Have fun exploring this creative feature and let your imagination run wild!
