iPhone Photography Styles are here to make your images look much better with minimal effort, every time.
Even though you know how to edit photos on iphone, you don’t necessarily want it. For photographers like me who spend long hours using the best photo editing software, the thought of editing iPhone photos may even seem like a chore. After all, the photos on my iPhone aren’t the ones I upload to Instagram — they’re the quick shots I take of my dogs, the pictures of meals with my family; they are not taken to earn rewards.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t want them to look good. Luckily, your iPhone gives you photography styles. This little-known iPhone camera setting effectively applies filters to your photos in the camera app. You can use it to make your photos more contrasty, more vibrant, and warmer or cooler. Essentially, you can set a photography style once and just let your phone apply the look you want, every time.
With that in mind, here’s how to set Photographic Styles on iPhone.
A word of warning: If you regularly edit photos on your iPhone, note that you cannot undo edits applied later to an image taken using Photo Styles.
How to Set Photographic Styles on iPhone
1. Open the Camera app And swipe up in Photo mode, then tap the 3 squares icon.
2. Swipe left to browse photographic styles and see what they do to your image.
3. When you are on a photographic style that you like, tap the sliders and then use extended sliders to vary the tone and warmth of this photographic style.
4. When you are happy, to take a picture use the photographic style.
5. To learn more about what the individual Photographic Styles do, you can also access them through the Settings menu. This method gives you a brief description of their effect and allows you to define a photographic style. Open the Settings app And tap CameraSO tap Photo Styles.
6. Scroll through the styles to see what each does to an image, then tap Use “Style” to define a style.
Once you set a photography style, your camera will use that style until you change it back to Standard. You don’t need to add photographic styles as a preserved camera setting. Remember to switch the camera back to Standard if you think you’ll be editing images later as these styles are in-image, so to speak – you can’t undo or remove their effect, giving you gives less flexibility in post-production.
