What's New

In Halide 1.11.1, we've fixed an issue with Portrait Effects Matte and improved the AR viewer.

Halide 1.11 is a special update for iPhone XR. Now you you can apply portrait mode to pets and other objects! Just tap 'Depth' to turn on Depth Capture; a portrait blur effect will be applied after you take your photo. You can fine-tune portrait effects in the Photos app.

iPhone XR users also benefit from the Smart RAW feature we release for iPhone XS. When shooting with auto-exposure, we optimize RAW capture for the lowest noise and best dynamic range.

Tag your photos #HalideOnXR and we may feature them!

If you don't have an XR, you'll still benefit from the bug fixes and improvements we made along the way.

Thanks for using Halide, if you enjoy the app, please help us out by rating us on the App Store.
