Two Tricks To Brighten Photos With iPhone Photos App
1) Choosing the Chroma filter
To do this, select the photo > tap the adjust icon > tap the filter icon > tap Chroma.
You’ll already see a pronounced change with this one filter (although at times it is overkill). But you still need to edit the “temperature” of your photo by either removing some of the yellow tint or blue tint. That leads to the second, more hidden tip:
2) Adjust temperature with the Cast tool
