Clipping an element in Photos is already a pleasure with iOS 16

Among all the brand new features of iOS 16, the effortless clipping of an element in the foreground of a photo is a must have. To do this, the procedure is relatively simple, as explained in our dedicated article: a simple long press is done. Then, the isolated object can be copied and then shared in another app: via Messages, in an email or on social networks.

It was enough for the most ingenious users to start their own assemblies taking advantage of this solution. One of them has chosen to save each of his looks of the day and then collect them in the Notes app, also published by Apple: the result is stunning. All of this, of course, securely stored on your iPhone.

To automate!

Even better: it is possible to automate this tool. In fact, the app Shortcuts Apple also has an option to remove the background from an image. All you have to do is integrate it into a series of actions to be carried out according to this or that context and you will have nothing more to do. Thus, one can imagine that a chef who cooks regularly at the same time records all his meals as soon as a photo is captured on his professional mobile between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Also practical for diet platforms such as Foodvisor.

With the new sensor forty-eight megapixel of the iPhone 14 Pro, it is also possible to take very clear shots where each food can be distinguished very well. Here is an example of what can be achieved this way:
