App Description


True multi-layer photo editing is finally available on mobile devices!

layrs is a photo app that enables the mobile photographer to easily separate a photo into layers and edit each layer individually.

Imagine blurring only the background to spotlight your subject. Imagine applying directional blur only to the subject to give it motion in a still background. You can apply a wide range of awesome filters and textures to each layer from subtle to abstract. You can further enhance each layer by sharpening, brightening, heightening the contrast and saturating the color.

This multi-layer editing capability is made possible with a proprietary technology that detects and cuts out objects very accurately on their boundaries creating different layers. Once a photo is separated into layers, each layer can be edited differently, opening up a wide range of possibilities!

layrs is the pioneer in high precision multi-layer photo editing on iPhones.
