Put on your best face with Microsoft Selfie

December 31, 2015

When you take a selfie, sometimes you want an easy way to make that picture look as good as possible. You want to remove any noise from the photograph, as well as adjusting the exposure, brightness, and contrast to maximize the beauty of the shot. On the other hand, you don’t want to fuss with a ton of controls to do all of that. Enter Microsoft Selfie, a new app that makes beautifying your vanity pictures easy.

Automatic denoising

By default, Microsoft Selfie turns on auto denoise. This feature removes graininess and other noise effects from your photographs. What you’re left with is an image that’s almost as perfect as can be, as far as noise goes.

Plenty of filters

The app also includes a number of filters you can apply to your images. These automatically apply contrast, brightness, and sharpness controls to your image to give it the effect you’re looking for. While Microsoft Selfie might not have as many filters as Enlight or Filters for iPhone, it does have a fair number to choose from.


Sharing your selfie

Here is where Microsoft has missed the mark, in my opinion. When you’re done with your editing, all you can do is save the image to your camera roll. The app doesn’t provide you with any way to share that image, so you have to go out of the app if you want to spread your mug around.


Getting your own Microsoft Selfie

Microsoft Selfie is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 8 or later. It’s a free download on the App Store, without any ads or in-app purchases.
