WHAT OUR USERS SAY
- "Makes your phone current. I wanted to trade my SE so that I could have the camera features of a 7 Plus and newer, but this app truly does exactly what the XS does. Just as good too. So, I decided to upgrade to 8. The camera is already good. This app makes the phone as any XS or XS Max. It’s all about software!!!"

Simple design paired with the advanced person recognition technology we use in the background
will give you what you are looking for. Phocus is not just a portrait mode editor, but it also has many unique photo editing tools, and applies these professionally just in seconds with minimum effort. Some of these perfect tools are portrait mode, portrait lighting, color splash and many other effects. All you have to do is to enjoy creating fast amazing portraits using Phocus.
All you need to do is to choose your photo from the gallery of your phone or take it using the built-in camera of Phocus, and then, simply tap the magic wand for the automatic background blur process. It will detect the person on the photo, and separate it from the background. Then, you can adjust the blur amount on the photo, or edit any area.
Phocus works just perfectly for foreground detection. #shotwithphocus
Using the portrait lighting feature, you can take marvelous portrait photos, just like a studio work. Portrait lighting mode provides a special light to the face while darkening the background. At the same time, there are also two options for this feature which you can try and use quickly. Stage lighting brings you to the foreground with your own colors of choice, and with mono lighting, you will get very cool black and white photos.
These tools offer you professional studio capabilities with no need to spend time and effort for choosing a place to take your photos.
MANUAL EDIT MODE
When you need to edit the photo focusing on the details of your portrait, use the brush tools and the
zoom. You can also use the blur amount adjusting tool. Create more professional photos using the manual edit mode!

Make this app a photo extension so you can add the blurt effects right inside the photos app. That would help for the older phones that don’t have the dual cameras etc. to get that blur effect right inside the photos app. I have iPhone SE and I use this app all the time for portrait mode blur. With a little more fine tuning of the auto photo blur , this app would be perfect. Sometimes the app doesn’t separate the person from the background too great. I know it works off of software only. But the google pixel does this with one camera also. Thanks. I hope I’m not asking for too much. I just really like the app and want to see it better.

Hi, thank you for your feedback! We will consider this in the next update. Thanks!
Amazing but lost all pro features after upgrading to pro
I upgraded to a monthly subscription, unlocked the pro features (aperture control, 3D lighting, etc.) and these worked, for about a half hour; when I tried the app again, these features had disappeared, and the app had reverted to its standard, unpaid features. Contacted support, they could not help me (I could not find anything on the app or in the App Store to “restore the purchase”, which made no sense to begin with-I’d just purchased it), I deleted and reinstalled the app (and restored the purchase after this), restarted the phone several times, and swore several times loudly. No luck. Still waiting for someone to respond to me (sent screenshots to support, no response after that).
Makes your phone current
I wanted to trade my iPhone SE so that I could have the camera features of a 7 Plus and newer, but this app truly does exactly what the XS does. Just as good too. So, I decided to upgrade to an iPhone 8. The camera is already good. This app makes the phone as any XS or XS Max. It’s all about software!!!
