Inverting a picture on your iPhone can be a fun way to add a unique twist to your photos. Whether you want to experiment with different effects or simply create a striking visual, this tutorial will guide you through the process of inverting an image on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is represented by a multicolored flower icon and is usually found on the Home screen.

Step 2: Select the Image

Next, navigate to the album or folder where the image you want to invert is located. Once you’ve found it, tap on the image to open it in full view.

Step 3: Edit Mode

Once you have opened the image, tap on the “Edit” button located at the top right corner of the screen. This will bring up various editing options for your photo.

Step 4: Adjustments

In edit mode, locate and tap on the “Adjustments” icon. It looks like three overlapping circles and is usually found at the bottom of the screen. This will open up a new menu with additional editing tools.

Brightness and Contrast

In this menu, you will find several adjustment options such as brightness, contrast, exposure, and more. While these tools can enhance your image in various ways, for inverting a picture we need to focus on one specific tool – “Brightness.”

Note: The appearance of adjustment tools may vary depending on your iOS version or device model.

Inverting the Picture

To invert your picture, slide your finger horizontally across the “Brightness” slider to the left. As you move the slider towards the left, you will notice the image gradually inverting.

Note: Experiment with different positions of the “Brightness” slider to achieve your desired effect. You can always tap on “Cancel” to revert back to the original image if you’re not satisfied with the result.

Save or Discard Changes

Once you are satisfied with the inverted image, tap on “Done” located at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will save your changes and exit edit mode.

If you wish to discard the changes without saving, simply tap on “Cancel” instead.

Inverting Multiple Images

If you want to apply this effect to multiple images at once, follow these steps:

  • Select all the images you want to invert by tapping on the “Select” button at the top right corner of the screen and then tapping on each image.
  • Once you have selected all the desired images, tap on the share icon (a square with an upward arrow) at the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • In the share sheet that appears, scroll through and select “Markup. “
  • In Markup mode, locate and tap on the “+” icon at the bottom right corner of your screen. This will open a new page where you can choose different markup tools such as text, shapes, and more.
  • Tap on “Color Adjustments.

  • Slide your finger horizontally across from right to left until you find an option called “Invert.” Tap on it.
  • Your selected images will now be inverted. You can further customize them using other markup tools if desired.
  • Once you are done, tap on “Done” to save the changes.


Inverting a picture on your iPhone is a simple yet effective way to add a different perspective to your photos. Whether you want to create unique artworks or simply explore new visual styles, the Photos app offers a quick and easy solution. Remember to experiment with different adjustment options and have fun exploring the creative possibilities!
