Uber for Photos: Let the Experts Edit Your Images With Mendr

No Photoshop? No Problem!
March 17, 2017

There’s a surfeit of photo editing apps available on iOS. Ranging from the general-purpose to the highly specialized, these give you the power to make your photos look as close to how you want them to appear as you can, depending on your mastery of the tools at your disposal. Be that as it may, nothing beats the power of actual, professional humans whose expertise it is to edit photos. But the thing is, they’re not nearly as accessible as the apps at your fingertips. Well, a new app called Mendr seeks to address that problem.

Mendr is pretty much the Uber for editing photos, with “Uber” having become a shorthand for any app that offers a certain service on demand. With the app, you can send an image that you think needs some work and an editor will take care of making it look the way you want it. It’s that simple.

With Mendr, you can specify exactly what you want to have edited … Simply submit your request, and one of our editors will take care of the rest.

Interested? To use it, you of course have to download the app, which is available now on the App Store for free. Then, you need to create an account via Facebook or email. Thereafter, you can go about the process of sending requests to have your photos edited by the pros. Read on to find out how it works.


How to use Mendr

Select a photo that needs some editing from your device’s library.

Tap Tailor to choose what edits you want applied to the photo and specify exactly what you want to be done using markings and comments.
Or tap Editor’s Touch to let the editor decide what editing needs to be done to make your photo better overall — in which case skip directly to payment in Step 4.

Tap the receipt icon to review your requested edits and their corresponding charges. Depending on the complexity of work that needs to be done, editing costs range from $2 to $30.

Note: By default, the app matches your request with an editor. But you can search for and hire specific editors by username.

Tip: Tap the Mendr logo and tap Editors Showcase to view sample work of editors.

Tap the Mend It button to submit your request and pay the required fee via Apple Pay or credit/debit card.

Wait for the push notification saying your edited photo is ready for download, the editor having finished the work.

Tap the notification to download your edited photo, ready for saving and sharing.

Mendr is great for people who are not adept at or have no access to Photoshop, but need professional edits for photos and can spare some bucks to have someone else do the job. Want to remove a photobomber from your otherwise lovely family photo? Need to swap out the background of your kid’s pic? Want to add a friend to a photo taken when she wasn’t around? Need to make promotional images look more enticing for your business? All that and more you can let the pros do for you with this app.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Mendr is available now on the App Store for free.
