Edit Multiple Photos At Once on iOS and iPadOS

So, how does batch editing photos work on iOS? To be more precise, Apple has made batch photo editing as simple as copy and paste – literally. Once you have edited an image, you can copy the edits and then paste them to all the preferred images.

  • To get started, open the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad. 
  • Now, head over to the folder where you have saved your images and then select any image. 
  • After that, tap on the Edit button at the top right corner of the user interface. 
  • Next, you can make the best use of all the available filters and effects to make your image look stunning. 
  • Once you have edited your image, tap on the Done button to confirm.

  • Now that you have unlocked this incredibly handy photo editing feature, never fail to get the most out of it especially when editing a bunch of images. 

From what I can tell based on my experience, the batch photo editing feature works like a charm. However, there are occasions where it does tend to get stuck and fail to paste the edits. If you ever come across this situation, you should first try to reboot your device. On most occasions, the soft reset will let you resolve this photo editing issue.

However, if that doesn’t get the job done for you, it would be apt to update the software as the problem might be due to a software bug. Head into the Settings app -> General -> Software Update -> Check for the available iOS/iPadOS update and then go ahead with the update process.
