Do you want to learn how to invert a photo on your iPhone? Inverting a photo can create interesting effects and give your images a unique twist. Whether you’re looking to experiment with artistic styles or enhance the visual appeal of your pictures, this tutorial will guide you through the step-by-step process of inverting photos on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To get started, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone. The Photos app is represented by a colorful flower icon and can usually be found on your home screen.

Step 2: Select the Photo

Browse through your photo library or albums to find the image you want to invert. Once you’ve located the photo, tap on it to open it in full-screen mode.

Step 3: Tap Edit

In the top-right corner of the screen, you’ll see an “Edit” button. Tap on it to enter the editing mode for the selected photo.

Step 4: Access Adjustments

At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find various editing options represented by icons. Swipe left or right until you see an icon that looks like three circles overlapping each other.

This is the “Adjustments” option. Tap on it to access additional editing tools.


If you can’t find this option, swipe left or right until you see an icon with sliders labeled “Light”, “Color”, and “B&W”. Tap on this icon instead.

Step 5: Invert Your Photo

In the Adjustments menu, locate and tap on the “Vignette” option. This will bring up a set of sliders for adjusting the vignette effect on your photo.

Step 6: Adjust the Intensity

By default, the vignette effect is set to its minimum intensity. To invert your photo, simply slide the intensity slider all the way to the right. You’ll notice that as you increase the intensity, your photo will gradually invert.

Step 7: Save Your Inverted Photo

Once you’re satisfied with how your photo looks, tap on the “Done” button in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will apply the inverted effect to your photo and save it.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully inverted a photo on your iPhone. Now you can experiment with this editing technique to add a unique touch to your images.

Note: Keep in mind that inverting a photo permanently alters its appearance. If you want to preserve the original version of your picture, it’s always a good idea to create a duplicate before making any edits.


  • Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
  • Select the photo you want to invert.
  • Tap on “Edit”.
  • Access adjustments by tapping on three overlapping circles or sliders labeled “Light”, “Color”, and “B&W”.
  • Select “Vignette” from adjustments.
  • Increase intensity by sliding the slider all the way to the right.
  • Tap “Done” and save your inverted photo.

Inverting photos is just one of many editing options available on your iPhone. Feel free to explore other tools and effects within the Photos app to unleash your creativity!
