How to Remove Depth Effect from a Photo in iOS 11 on iPhone 7 Plus

How do you remove blur effect from Portrait Mode in iOS 11 on iPhone 7 Plus? That's made quite simple to do in the latest iOS version!

Apart from the ultra-large display and superior performance, the one feature that makes iPhone 7 Plus really stunning is the Portrait Mode, which allows you to snap shots with depth effect. The camera mode highlights subjects by blurring the background. Interestingly, you can remove depth effect from Portrait Mode photos in iOS 11 to check out the blurred background a bit more clearly while editing the shot.

If you ever want to re-add depth effect to the photos, you will get it done with ease. To me, it’s a simple but a well-thought –out improvement in the Portrait Mode. It provides you a bit more flexibility to fine tune the photos taken with the DSLR-like blur effect.
