Our top selfie editing features to level up your photos
Once you’ve selected your photo and are ready to edit, import it into the YouCam Perfect app. From the editing screen, you’ll be able to choose from all available options, including Beautify and Edit tools.
Under Beautify, you’ll find red-eye eliminators, teeth whitening tools, face smoothing, face shaping options, and much more.
When you click into Edit, you’ll find powerful photo editing features including animations, object removal, blending, frames, stickers, and tons of other creative tools to help you level up your selfies.
Here, we’ve collected our top selfie editing features — as determined by you, our users — that can help you achieve Insta-worthy photos.
Let’s get started.
1. Reshape and smooth your look
Before we get to work on styling and adding effects to your selfie, let’s dig into the Beautify options. Using the Smooth and Face Shaper tools, you can blur out blemishes and spots, and manually edit your look. The intuitive editor lets you change the intensity of the edit — how much you’d like to blur — as well as details of the face shape. Make sure you make the beautify edits first before heading into the Edit tab and adding in other elements.
2. Add effects for dynamic movement
Once you’ve edited the look, you’re ready to add new elements and features to your photo. In the Effects panel, you’ll find filters and animations to add to your image, and countless dynamic options that will turn your image into a moving GIF or video.
Adding animations to your photos can not only help to create movement, but it’s one of the best — and easiest — ways to add engaging elements into your photo. YouCam Perfect’s Effects panel includes moving sparkles, shooting stars, or preset filters to help you achieve that dreamy influencer Instagram look. Choose from artistic, moody, dewy, and countless other filters to get the exact aesthetic you want. Remember it for next time to get that perfectly uniform grid.
3. Remove unwanted objects for a clutter-free image
Keep the focus of your selfie on, you guessed it, you, by eliminating all unwanted objects from the photo. Removing unwanted objects from your picture is quick and easy using the Removal tool. Simply head into the editing effect, use the brush to highlight the area of the photo you wish to remove (it’ll then appear highlighted in red), click Remove, and the intelligent editor will quickly eliminate the identified object and replace it with a proper fill. Pro-level photo editing, right at your fingertips.
4. Add custom frames for fun, lively backgrounds
Still looking to add more creativity and show personality in your selfie? YouCam Perfect hosts a library of frames and themed borders to help further add to your selfies. Add in holiday borders, creative graphic designs, and animated frames to boost your photo’s individuality. Colorful corner additions or subtle vignettes add even more unique pieces to your photo.
