Applying and removing Filters in Camera + Photos

You probably already know that you can apply filters to a photo in iOS 8—either in the Camera app while you’re shooting or afterward by editing it in the Photos app – but what you may not realize is that these filters are applied non-destructively, even when you apply them before you take the photo in the Camera app.

If you apply a filter and then later decide that maybe you preferred a different one, or want to remove the filter altogether, you can simply go into the Photos app, edit the photo as you normally would, and change up the filter or set it back to “None.” If you’re using iCloud Photo Library, these non-destructive filters even transfer across to your other iOS devices or Photos on your Mac, so you can remove the filter even later on from your desktop – it’s applied in much the same way as any other edit, even when its added at the time of shooting the image.
