iPhone Colour Grading with native PHOTOS App

So you've just been taking some great photos & videos with your iPhone, and want to share what you've captured with your friends, family, clients, etc... Here are your options:

  • Send the original straight away, but secretly wish your pics looked more polished

  • Use a generic Instagram filter or (worse) spend money on an app you'll hardly use

  • Wait until you're home, transfer your clips to your computer and spend ages tweaking each image in Photoshop / Lightroom, etc... OR

  • Use our FREE & EASY colour grading recipe to quickly spruce up your shots!

Disclaimer! We're not saying this replaces professional editing with your pro software of choice, but it's a great, subtle, on-the-go solution to help your snaps shine!


If you've used a 3rd-party camera app or another device make sure to import your images to the stock PHOTOS app. When you're ready, tap EDIT in the top-right corner.
