Once you have opened the photo, look for the “Edit” button located at the top-right corner of your screen and tap on it. This will take you to the editing interface.

Step 4: Enhance Your Photo

If you want to enhance your photo’s overall appearance, tap on the “Adjust” icon at the bottom of your screen. Here, you’ll find various tools such as:

  • Brightness: Adjusts the overall brightness of your photo.
  • Contrast: Alters the difference between light and dark areas of your image.
  • Saturation: Controls the intensity of colors in your photo.
  • Exposure: Changes how bright or dark your entire image appears.

If you want to crop or rotate your photo, tap on the “Crop” icon at the bottom. Here, you can:

Step 6: Apply Filters

To give your photo a different look, tap on the “Filters” icon at the bottom. You’ll see a variety of preset filters that instantly change the mood and style of your image.

Scroll through them and find one that suits your taste. Don’t worry, you can always revert back to the original by selecting “None” at the beginning of the filter list.

Step 7: Make Local Adjustments

If you want to make specific adjustments to certain areas of your photo, tap on the “..” (three dots) icon at the top-right corner of your screen and select “Markup”. Here, you can use tools like drawing, text, and shapes to annotate or highlight specific parts of your image.
