Focos app brings Portrait mode-style depth of field with any iPhone or iPad

We have written a lot about the application of photos Spotlights here in Cult of Mac because it is like Photoshop's approach. The universal iOS application allows you to edit the focus of your photos in Portrait mode in a crazy depth (pun). But v2.0 has just launched and it's amazing.

Spotlights 2 uses machine learning to calculate the depth of any photo and then apply a vertical style blur. That means you can take portrait photos on the iPad and, most wild of all, you can apply a portrait background blur to the photos you have saved from the Internet.

Spotlights 2 brings Portrait mode to any photo

For more information on everything else that Spotlights can do, see the panels at the end of this post. Today we are going to see how to apply Portrait style blur to any photo.

First, open the Spotlights application and take a photo from inside the application or swipe up to see a grid of photos in your library. There are three tabs on this screen: Portrait photos, All photos and Albums. Use the All Photos tab to search for images taken without Portrait mode. For this example, I will use a photo taken by the resident fitness expert and the sexy one in general, Graham "Jack" Bower. Here is the original:

And here it is in the iPad version of Spotlights 2.0: [19659010] Spotlight depth of field function: pretty good, right? ” width=”2000″ height=”1499″/>

This new feature uses machine learning to generate a depth map for the photo. Once this is done, you can use all the other Spotlight tools to edit the image, lighting the photo again, for example, or painting / erasing the focus map manually. You can also use the lens section to apply a custom bokeh to unfocused reflections.

The depth of field of Spotlights looks miraculous

Here is another image, taken from a review of our own Killian "Bizzle" Bell. First, the original:

Then, the Focossed version:

  The application of photos Spotlights lost a bit of hair in the left center, but otherwise, this is great.

The results are almost always excellent. I would rate it with Native Portrait mode in terms of reliability. Which means that it is amazing when it works well, and that it works well most of the time.

In fact, Spotlights actually works better than the native Portrait mode in some way. For starters, you can use it on photos taken with the wide lens (you can do it natively on the iPhone XR, but not on the XS). You can also use it in panoramas, which is quite wild. Here is an example of that.

It looks more like those tilt shift images that took popularity a few years ago, but the effect still seems pretty wild. And for our last example, here is a photo taken from the Internet. I made a short video of Spotlights in action:

Pretty crazy, right? And Spotlights manages to generate the depth map in seconds.

If you don't have Spotlights yet, you should go find him now.
