How to take advantage of the photo-editing tools in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13

The Photos app for macOS has improved substantially since its introduction, especially in the variety and sophistication of its image editing tools. On the iPhone and iPad, Photos lagged considerably. But with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, Apple offers a distinct catch up with its image editing tools, even exceeding the Mac version in a couple regards.

Let’s look at what’s new and how to best use these new tools to crop, revise, and enhance images after capturing pictures.

What’s new in Photos editing

Apple changed and expanded the controls available while editing, while also improve the way in which each control is accessed and modified.

The intensity slider allows precision control over application of settings of all kinds.

Intensity slider. Nearly every tool now has an adjustment slider you can slide left and right or up and down, depending on your editing orientation. This allows fine and coarse changes in the “intensity,” or how much of the setting you’re applying. Tapping the main control icon typically resets the slide back to remove the adjustment. Haptic feedback lets you feel a sort of rotation, like it’s a dial, particularly the zero point. Intensity also applies to photo filters, so you can apply one with heavy or light hand, as you like.

Cropping. You can now skew an image in each axis across its middle and its center as separate controls, the effect of rotating the image as it were a flat object you were turning with perspective towards or away from you.

Cropping tools include rotation and two tilt options.

Controls don’t crowd the screen. Earlier editing tools splayed out more like the macOS equivalent, making it very awkward to see and select tools from a list on an iPhone. The new layout works far better in any view.

More editing adjustments. If you’ve used the adjustment options in Photos for macOS, none of the tools in Photos for iOS and iPadOS will be new, but several make their first appearance here. Those are Definition, Noise Reduction, Sharpness, Tint, Vibrance, Vignette, and Warmth.

Use the new editing tools

Tap the dial icon, and the general editing tools appears, which you swipe through. A nice label appears below the image, identifying which of the 16 tools is selected. The intensity slider appears below the tool when your iPhone or iPad is in portrait orientation and to its right in landscape.
