iOS 16 Will Let You Copy Photo Edits And Apply Them To Others
Apple’s upcoming iOS 16 update will allow people to copy the edits that they make to a specific photo and then apply them to others, reducing the amount of work needed when processing images.
Apple announced iOS 16 during its WWDC22 opening keynote on Monday and while a raft of features were shared, this wasn’t one of them. However, with the first beta now in the hands of developers there are plenty of features still being found and this is one of them.
According to a MacRumors report, the process is a simple one. First, apply edits to one photo and then open a new three-dot menu and sell;etc the option to Copy Edits. From there, it’s plain sailing:
Open up another photo, tap on the same three dot icon, and choose Paste Edits and the second image will get the exact same adjustments. This feature is handy if you have a specific aesthetic that you like to have for all of your images or if you have a batch of iPhone photos taken at the same time that would benefit from similar improvements.
Editing in such a way previously required the use of a specialist third-party app, but by adding the feature to the stock Photos app, Apple has opened it up to a lot more people. Just as importantly, it’s free and users will not need to pay for an app.
Apple’s iOS 16 is expected to be made available to everyone later this year, likely in or around September.
