Getting Started with Tools and Filters

After opening an image, access Tools and Filters by tapping TOOLS to add an edit. Tools will help to perfect the image, from cropping and straightening to removing spots and scratches. From there, Filters can be applied to add style.

The order in which Tools and Filters are applied matters. For example, adding Frames before adding Lens Blur will blur the frame. If Frames is added after Lens Blur, the frame will remain sharp.

Compare in one click.Tap and hold within a Tool or Filter to reveal the before image. Or from the home screen, tap and hold the image itself.

Zoom in to see details using a pinching gesture on the image. Use two fingers to pan through the image when zoomed.

The workflow is non-destructive. Working in Stacks allows for adjusting previously-applied edits made in Tools and Filters, even after saving the image.
