Selecting a focus area more precisely, you can achieve more natural and professional image.
Just mark the areas you want, AfterFocus automatically recognizes the focus area precisely even for an object with complex shapes.
This auto function allows you to work faster on smart phones with small screen.
Also, background blur effect of AfterFocus gives a photo the realistic look between the edge of the background and the focus area.
With our realistic filter effects, you will enjoy photographing and photo editing even more, and share them on SNS easily.
1. Smart focus area selection
Simply draw some lines inside a focus area and the background, then AfterFocus will automatically recognize the focus area. You can also select the area with traditional finger painting.
2. Background Blur effect
You can create the most realistic blur effect with various aperture styles just like DSLR camera.
To emphasize that certain things move, Motion blur effect is also available.
3. Filter effect
AfterFocus offers from basic effects to professional effects like Cross Process without looking artificial.
Also, you can emphasize the spot light on the background using Bokeh effect.
4. Double photo
Take a picture of one object and move slightly to the right to take another picture of the same object, and it will analyze the images and recognize the nearest object, so there is no need to draw the focus area.
(Make sure that the background and the distance of the object are far enough and have clear texture to get a great result.)
5. Easy share
You can share through e-mails and SNS easily and simply.

fix bugs in setting screen
After using this app I realize I don’t have to buy a bigger or more expensive iPhone for Portrait mode. This thing does just as good if a job, if not better. I love it. Update: I have an iPhone X and I still prefer to use this because I can get my blurring details just right. Still absolutely love this app. QUESTION: where did the developers of this app go??? It hasn’t been updated in two years. This app is amazing I just want to see it get better.
One of the best for single lens camera
I really like this app, I use it all the time. I have no photography skills or knowledge and this app (plus a few others) allow me to be super creative with my photos — I feel like a pro! I’ve even entered a few photo contests. Mahalo nui!
Every time I go to use this app now it tries to download an update and it stops working with no explanation.
For those of us with older model iPhones without dual lenses. It’s very simple to draw a line for the focus and background areas, then set blur, bokeh, etc. Love it!
This app is easy to use to simulate a narrow depth of field. But unfortunately it doesn’t save your images in full resolution.
Doesn't work... waste of money
Works pretty well, especially if you take your time to carefully mask the areas you want to blur. I’ve used it a long time and will continue to until I find a similar app that leaves my metadata intact. As a photographer, it’s pretty important to have that info for photos in my catalog and galleries. So, only 3 stars from me. However, it’s great for quick social media posts if you don’t care about preserving metadata.
Me encantó 👌🏻 la recomiendo totalmente.
This app does one thing and does it very well. This is a very easy to use and is very stable - I’ve never had it crash (iPhone 5&6Plus). Some apps have too many things going on, most of which I never use. This is a go-to app for me to make a good image look awesome! Thanks and keep up the good work.
First go this app did what it was supposed to do. So simple and very cool (free) features.
Don't bother with this. It's clumsy to use, and is not smart enough when feathering in the changes. It frequently crashes and you lose the changes you were working on.
Not worth $1.49
This is a fantastic little App for post photo adjustment, love the blur or motion blur for the appropriate photo, works well :)
Nice little app that does what it says. :)
Should allow smart and manual editing as the smart editing is not always smooth. And higher resolution please or use original file resolution. 3 star for time being
I went out to buy an SLR camera. I couldnt find the one I wanted. Im glad I couldnt. This app is amazing. I am no longer buying a camera. With this app i have a 100% effective SLR sitting in my pocket. Well done!
The most inovative focus selection app. The only drawback is that it can not save the image in original resolution. The highest resolution is still OK which is 1536 x 2048. I just hope that there will be an update to address this resolution issue.
Was hoping it would sharpen a picture after a site claimed it could fix the focus target but it didn't. Wasted a buck. It just blurs the area and makes you see the target. Doesn't fix the blurry mess of your digital
Don't waste your money on this, instead, buy: Tadaa SLR They even didn't pay me back. I hate fake apps. I hate hyped descriptions. So I hate this app. Ffff.....ck
more filters needed.
It's not that great should be free .
This app doesn't work with my iPhone 6 plus. I am stuck in the help screen. Nothing changes once all the slides run.
The erase button doesn't work anymore! Please fix. Thx.
I love this app! I can now go back and edit pics of my 13 month old. They look so much better! I could not find some of the more basic functions, such as cropping. I currently use another app for that.
I’ve been using AfterFocus for a couple of years. It’s one of my favorite photo apps because it works and it’s quick. It adds the depth of field effect to iPhone pics so well, you may find yourself importing photos taken with a “regular” camera into your iPhone so you can get the same effect. Highly recommended.
This really is a great app. Very focused (pardon the pun) but good at what it does. While I have many very sophisticated photo editing apps that in principle can do this effect, this is still the easiest way to accomplish it. My biggest request is that the developer would add native iPad support. To those who have problems with the precision of the masking process, I find that I can get as detailed as I wish if I magnify the image sufficiently. One other nit is I wish it was more clear what resolution the app is working at or saving the photo too. All-in-all a really great little app that I keep coming back to, but please add an iPad version.
When manually coloring to highlight the focal area, could we get an update where it includes a magnify feature?
