Editing photos on iPhone is really easy to do, but sometimes it takes quite a few taps to get to where you want – and a good example of that is if you wanted to crop this photo say of the tool ships in Falmouth Harbour I’d have to go to Edit, and then to Crop, and then to choose a size, and then to make it smaller, and then press Done, then press Save… It’s the whole thing.

All I want to do is actually just get this particular boat and… look!

In the top corner that’s a new button!

Remember, I haven’t actually gone into Edit mode, I’ve just zoomed into my photo here.

If I tap that new Crop button it will then take me straight to the Crop page, with a bounding box the shape of my screen on that photo, ready for me.

From here I can then find the crop that I want, so I can make sure I get the whole tall ship in, and then all I have to do is press Done and that crop is saved.

Literally two taps rather than about eight, so much easier and a real timesaver!
