4 Photo Editing Tips to Celebrate Friendship

If you’re interested in learning how you can edit your friendship photos with the YouCam Perfect app, you’re in the right place. The first step is knowing the terminology. Most of us are familiar with the term “selfie,” but a more appropriate phrase for a photo of you and your friends is an “usie” (us-ie). An “usie” is a group selfie, where someone takes a picture of themselves with other people in the shot. Having a great “usie” available to post on social media for International Friendship Day when it’s celebrated on July 30 is a great goal to have, and it’s the perfect occasion to snap group selfies with your awesome friends. Now let’s get into the four photo editing tips that will help you achieve that sought-after “usie.”

Remove Unwanted Objects in Your Photo

Sometimes you get the perfect picture, but there’s something or someone photobombing your otherwise ideal group photo. A distracting object or subject in the background will take away from the quality and impact of your “usie,” but you can use YouCam Perfect’s “Object Removal” tool to clean up your image. To use this tool to your advantage, upload the photo you want to edit. Then, select “Removal” on the bottom navigation, and you’ll be able to draw over the object you want to remove, or you can use the “Smart Brush” tool, which will automatically detect the object and draw the outlines for you. From there, simply tap the green checkmark and your object or subject will disappear! Try it now!
