There are two kinds of iOS photo editors: the type that lets you fiddle and adjust images in quite exact increments, and the other kind that supplies a means to boost your photos with a minimum of clicks.

Prettify (free with some in-app choices) belongs to the last group, and it does its job with style and simplicity. Open a photo, click boost and you get Hi-Def, Illuminate and Shade Fix choices. Each boosts the image in a different means: Hi-Def appears to adjust contours and saturation; Lighten readjusts illumination and comparison; and Shade Repair rebalances the color. Each repair can be used independently or in an additive method with one more solution.

Past those repairs there are numerous Instagram-like filters. There’s additionally an item to defocus or hone selectively, and there are the conventional cropping and saturation tools. Pictures could be retouched with a teeth-whitening filter, red-eye elimination and a mark eliminator.

The application does a nice work at every activity and is fairly eye-catching, with stunning gradient backgrounds and quite contemporary symbols.

The app is free, and I viewed the occasional promotion. An in-app acquisition of US$ 1.99 removes the ads if they frustrate you. There are other in-app purchases for adding content, frames and sticker labels to your photos, but numerous iOS professional photographers will more than likely have other options for those results and can stay clear of the purchases.

Prettify utilizes the reliable Aviary image publisher, and afterwards adds some extra techniques of its very own. It is a superb spur-of-the moment image editor, and it runs Aviary in a truly fine-looking wrapper. If you are looking for something very easy, eye-catching and free to make a good iOS photo great, Prettify costs a download.

Prettify requires iOS 7 or later on. It’s not an universal app, and it is optimized for the iPhone 5.
