Portrait mode is a distinct feature that came up with the iOS 11, which enables the user to click the picture of a single object with a depth effect, i.e. with Blur Background. Normally the function of portrait mode is to focus on a single subject and to create blur background automatically. If in any case, a person doesn’t want the image with the depth effect after clicking the image in portrait mode then it is hard to remove by default in iOS.

So, To overcome this limitation, iOS 12 arises with an editing option through which you can remove and add depth effect from the portrait mode pictures instantly.

Make the wrong click and rare picture clear by removing depth effect from portrait mode using picture editing tools. For that, we don’t need to use markup tools.
