How to erase an image or background on iPhone or Android

  • You can take a picture that you take blurred with the portrait mode in the Camera app that is included with most modern iPhones.
  • You can use an app like YouCam Perfect to blur any part of an image after taking it on iPhone or Android.
  • YouCam Perfect is free and lets you blur anywhere in the image using a brush or a shape.

Nobody wants to see a blurred image – at least not an image that has been blurred by mistake. But there are some good reasons to intentionally blur an image. For example, it can look artistic and a blurred background can draw attention to the sharp foreground. Armed with the right app, it’s easy to blur photos on both iPhone and Android.

How to erase a picture on iPhone with portrait mode

If you want to blur the background of your photo for an artistic, professional portrait, most iPhones do this easily with the camera app’s portrait mode. This feature is included in the iPhone SE (second generation and later) and most models from iPhone 8 Plus or later.

1. Start Camera app and press Portrait at the bottom of the screen.

2. Compose your photo.

3. Before taking the picture, press f icon at the top right. One f stop control should appear at the bottom of the screen.

4. Drag the slider to select the amount of background blur you want. The smaller the number, the more pronounced the blur (for example, f 2.0 will generate a blurred background than f 16).

5. When you are satisfied, take the picture.

How to erase an image on iPhone or Android

You do not have to rely on iPhone’s portrait mode to add blur to photos; there are apps available for iPhone and Android that allow you to add a blur effect. One of the simplest and most flexible apps with a blur tool is YouCam Perfect.

YouCam Perfect has several blur tools to choose from. There are options to blur the entire image except for one shape (such as a circular, elliptical, or rectangular) region that remains sharp, and another allows you to use a brush to blur the image anywhere in the image. How to use the app.

1. Install YouCam Perfect for your iPhone or Android phone.

2. Start YouCam Perfect. The app is free, but you will see ads to subscribe to the app’s premium features. You can dismiss these.

3. Tap Photo editing and select a photo stored in the camera roll of the phone that you want to edit.

6. The Blur tool offers some ways to blur the image.

  • Circle: This default option shows concentric circles. You can drag the circles around the screen and resize them. The center of the circle remains sharp and the image is gradually blurred towards the outer circle, giving the image a natural look. Size and position the circle to add the blur you want to the photo. You can also choose Ellipse or Rectangle – all these three tools work in basically the same way.
  • Brush: In many situations, the brush tool is a better choice. You can use Paint and Delete tools at the bottom of the screen to selectively add and remove blur anywhere in the image. Or, if you prefer, press Person icon – the app automatically tries to find the person in the image and keep it sharp, blurring the surrounding background.
