Batch edit photos

To batch edit photos, you first select them, then choose what settings will be applied, and finally, choose where you want to save the edited images.


  1. In the Photos or the Files browser, navigate to a folder with the photos you'll be editing.
  2. Tap Select in the top-right corner of the screen, then tap to select the photos you’d like to edit.
  3. Tap Edit at the top of the screen.
  4. Choose from your favorite batch workflows to instantly apply them or tap More Workflows to see all available workflows or create new ones.
  5. Tap Apply to start automatically editing photos.
  6. Once your photos have been edited, choose where you'd like to save them.

Important: The photos edited in batch don’t keep the nondestructive edits by default. To be able to fine-tune the photos after they have been edited, make sure the "Preserve Edits" option is turned on in the workflow settings.

Alternatively, you can tap Export and select PHOTO as the export file format.

Customize a batch workflow

You can customize any workflow to change the edits it applies.

  1. Tap More on the workflow you'd like to edit.
  2. Customize the settings:

    Adjust Colors. Turn on Adjust Colors and choose from the available Color Adjustment presets. Tap ML Enhance to enhance photos before applying the presets. You can also use ML Enhance on its own to automatically improve the look of your photos.

    Rotate. In Rotate, you can add actions that straighten, rotate, and flip photos.

    Crop. Tap ML Crop to crop your photos automatically or turn on Crop to choose from the available crop presets. You can also use ML Crop in combination with the crop presets.

    Export. You can use export to save your images to HEIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PHOTO file formats. If Export is turned off, the original photos will be overwritten with new changes. You'll still be able to revert to the original photos in the Photos browser or the iOS Photos app. Export is turned on by default for all pre-made workflows.

    Scale. Turn Scale on to export an image at 50%, 25% of its original size, or enter a custom scale size.
