Listen to the Podcast:
Generative AI and AI-powered photography apps are all the rage and are increasingly becoming an important part of a content creator’s toolbox.
Here are the five best iPhone AI photography apps we’ve found.
1. Photoleap: Artistic AI Photo Editor
Usually, when we put together a list of the best types of apps, we don’t list them in order: we don’t name them No. 1 or 2, etc. But we’re breaking that rule here because we love the Photoleap app. Its AI-derived tools are super powerful, and the app has many AI photo-based tools. In other words, fotosalto is best viewed as a collection of apps rather than a single app.

Photoleap’s AI photo generator is one of the best we’ve found in an iPhone app. But it’s some of its other tools that we’ve fallen in love with. The moving background effects tools are particularly impressive. With one tap, you can remove the sky from your photo and replace it with a photorealistic animated one, beautiful stars, or a raging storm.
The app’s magic eraser tool is also among the best we’ve seen. This allows you to select an object in a photo and make it disappear. It is so simple and effective that it is almost like magic.
But all the animated effects that let you turn your still photos into moving videos make this app shine. There are too many effects to list here. So we will say that this is one of the few apps worth paying the in-app subscription fee to access all the tools and effects. Of course, you can also use many app features for free.

The only bad thing about this app is that no Mac desktop version is available. If there were, we could see how professional content creators could use the desktop version as an essential part of their workflow.
2. Lensa AI: Photo and Video Editor
Lensa has been all over the news lately. You’ve probably heard of it—it’s the app that lets you touch up your face to make it look perfect and has extra features like background removal, blur, and depth adjustments that any good AI photography app has.
But Lensa is best known as the app that lets you make awesome “magic avatar” profile pictures of yourself in various art styles. Lensa far outperforms in this regard. Another great thing about the Lensa app is that the developers have made a Mac desktop version available so you can use it on your Mac and iPhone.
3. Wonder – AI Art Generator
Like many of the apps on this list, Wonder does several things. Most impressive are its generative AI capabilities in turning text into art. Enter “Shakespeare eating a hot dog” and see what the app spits.

But another stellar feature of Winder is the quick inspiration feature. Prompts are the commands you give. Generative AI is here, and many people are having trouble finding their own (this will likely lessen as generative AI becomes more of the norm). But for now, the quick inspiration tool is an excellent and welcome feature.
4. Revive: Face Photo Animator
Revive isn’t as robust an app as others on this list, but it’s entertaining. The app’s main feature allows you to animate mouths on photos and illustrations. You can then record your audio to make it look like the animated mouths speak your words.
It’s an enjoyable app and is an excellent example of the entertainment that AI photo apps can provide.
5. AI Retouch – Remove Objects
AI Retouch is an excellent app for people who post their photos on Instagram. It’s a great app to have in your editing toolbox because of its highly focused set of tools. The automatic people detection tool is my personal favorite. The tool automatically selects people in a photo, and you can then remove them with a tap. The AI will automatically add the background of the surrounding area that should have been behind them.
