We’ve all been there – you take a bunch of photos at an event or while out with friends. Of course you want them all to look good before posting online. But manually editing every single snap can be tedious and time-consuming.
Luckily, the iPhone’s built-in Photos app makes it simple to copy edits from one picture and paste them onto others. So you can edit just one photo, then instantly apply those same tweaks to your other pics. Huge time saver!
I prefer editing shots right on my phone rather than using desktop software. The iOS editing tools have gotten really advanced, letting me fine-tune to my heart’s content.
Here’s a quick rundown of how to copy and paste edits between iPhone photos:
Step 1. Open the Gallery app on your iPhone.
Step 2. Scroll through the photos and pick a photo that you wish to edit.
Step 3. Tap on the ‘edit’ option on the top right-hand side of the screen.
Step 4. Perform your editing operation. You have a host of features that you can tinker with. Do it until you are satisfied.
Step 5. Once you are done with your edits, tap on the ‘three-dot’ button at the top right-hand side of the screen.
Step 6. From the pop-up menu that appears, tap on the ‘Copy Edits’ option.
Step 7. Now, save the photo and browse through your gallery and choose a second photo that you want to edit.
Step 8. Here, tap on the ‘three-dot’ button next to the edit option.
Step 9. From the menu, tap on the ‘Paste Edits’ option.
The edits you had performed on the first picture will be repeated for the new picture. You can do this to as many photos as you want. If you want to tinker the new image further, you can do so using the usual edit option. This feature saves you a lot of time as you can get a base coat of edits on your image and then fine tune them, rather than doing everything from scratch.
