Portrait Mode photo editor Focos received an update today that should pique the interest of iPad owners. We've highlighted the iPhone app in the past for its impressive granular aperture and bokeh adjustment tools, but the latest version builds on the existing feature set by adding more extensive support for iPads.


With this latest 1.6 update, Focos brings a new, specially designed interface to iPad that's more convenient to use on the larger screens.

In addition, Focos now includes support for taking portrait pictures on Apple's latest 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, while for owners of earlier iPad models, it's now possible to edit portrait pictures transferred from a dual-camera iPhone.

Focos users are able to multiple-select and transfer portrait pictures from iPhone to iPad right from within the app for further editing.

Focos also includes Apple Pencil support, making it possible to patch the depth map of a portrait photo more precisely using Apple's latest input device.

Previously the Patch tool was an in-app purchase, but in this latest version it's now free to use, providing photographers with another reason to get the iPad version to edit their portrait pictures precisely.

Focos is a free download for iPads and dual-lens iPhones from the App Store, although several pro features are behind a paywall. It costs $0.99 per month or $6.99 per year to unlock them, but there's also an $11.99 lifetime access purchase option. [Direct Link]

It's a great app but wish it had Apple's algorithms about edge detection and software blur. Unless you go crazy with the bokeh like f1.4, the regular one looks quite bad compared to Apple's very organic look.

Agreed.

Additionally, the camera function of the app Focos complements the portrait mode of the iOS standard camera to an extended range of use in depth, it is more possible than the maximum of 2.5 meters distance to the object / subject in the foreground. (At least it was like this when I tested it mid 2018.)
