The Complete Guide to Image Blender Photo Editing App

In this tutorial you’re going to learn everything you need to know about Image Blender photo app. While there are many similar layer and masking apps, none of them can beat Blender in terms of simplicity.

If the whole idea of layers and masks scares you, Blender is the perfect app to start with. But despite its simplicity, there are so many things you can do with Blender, and in these video tutorials I’ll cover what I think are the three most interesting ways to use this app.

The first video introduces you to the basics of Image Blender and shows you how to best use this app for creating multi-exposure photos like the one you can see above.

Please download this and this photo so you can follow along on your own iPhone.

In the second video I’ll show you how to use masks in Blender to selectively apply adjustments made in any other app to only some parts of the image. Please download this photo to follow along.

Here is the end result with Mextures effects applied to the top part of the photo only.

In the final video I’ll show you how to combine elements from different photos into one composite image. Please download this and this photo to follow along.

And here is the end result of this editing workflow. No, the birds weren’t there.

It's easy to take a quick snapshot with iPhone, but most people don't know how to take full control of their iPhone's camera. That's why we created a free video revealing 7 hidden iPhone camera features that every photographer should use.

    Another excellent tutorial, Emil! I’ve played around in Blender, mostly creating double exposures, but now I understand more about using the making tools! Thanks!

    I noticed that sometimes the edges of the blended pictures are jagged and not smooth. Is there a way to fix this or another blending app similar that doesn’t have this problem?

    • You have to be very careful with how you cut off the different layers, if you do it extremely precisely that won’t be an issue.

    Hello, I have a very simple question … right at the beginning of adding this app to my Ipad and i have struck a block. When I followed the above instructions for installing and selected settings a frame came up with some formatting such as ‘Always save as PNG’ and resolutions etc. and not the page Emil indicated on the video. There is no Tips and Tricks, rather ’email support, Rate Image Blender etc.’
    Can anyone help me out here. In anticipation many thanks, Wendy
