With iOS 16, Apple introduced a cool new feature, much like Instant Photoshop, in that you can use it to extract the subject from any image or photo, paste it onto another photo, Or use it as a sticker in the Messages app. It’s so clever that we thought we’d show it off in our latest YouTube video.
Apple calls this feature “raise subject from background” and is part of the Visual Look Up feature set. To use it, just long press on any image and then you can drag it into a different app or copy it.
It works on Photos, Screenshots, Quick Look, Safari and even Videos and is available on iPhone, iPad and Mac. It doesn’t have many practical uses, but it’s certainly impressive and fun to use. Be sure to watch our video to see it in action.
