Applying Filters to your Photos

In this lesson for Photography with the Camera app on the iPhone, we look at how we apply filters to a photo, including how we can preview a filter and change it after we’ve taken the photo.

Applying Filters before we take the Photo
If you look in the upper right corner of your iPhone when in the Camera app, you’ll see the filters icon. It’s three circles in the form of a pyramid. When you tap on this, all the filters you can apple will show at the bottom of your preview screen. To apply any of the filters, you just tap on it. Once you find the filter you like, just tap on the shutter. When you do this, the filter you selected will be applied to the photo you just took.

Applying Filters or Removing Filters from a Photo
Once we apply a filter, we can go to the photo and change the filter, or even remove it. To do this we want to tap on the thumbnail in the lower left side. When we do this, you can review all your photos. Find the photo with the filter and tap on Edit. You’ll see the filter icon at the bottom. Tap on this and you can change the filter or even remove the filter you applied.
