Recrop gives you a second chance to reframe your photos for a compositionally balanced look.

Here are the main features of the app:

• Unique uncropping function
• Aspect ratios and grids to help you reframe photos
• Straightening without losing the resolution of a photo


• Recomposing a photo by moving its frame

Recrop allows reframing images even after they have already been taken.
Move a photo frame or drag its handles toward the inside or outside a photo to recompose the shot. The clever app will automatically fill in the expanded areas based on the content surrounding it.

• Reframing a photo by using aspect ratios

With the list of the most common aspect ratios the app has to offer, you can obtain a photo of the needed proportions fast and with no effort. As soon as a specific ratio is selected, tap the Apply button — and the app will crop or uncrop your shot to those specific dimensions.

• Reframing a photo by using grids

Recrop provides you with a set of the classical composition grids to help you be accurate when recomposing your images. After selecting a grid, just move a photo frame as needed to balance the photo.


Straighten a crooked horizon line in a photo by swiping left or right or up or down anywhere outside the photo frame. The resolution of the photo won't be lost — the nearby pixels will be copied and added to the areas created.


“Recrop does one thing insanely well and is the only smartphone app dedicated to this task: like content-aware fill for Photoshop, it can extend elements of an image to give more of what you missed, allowing you to crop, rotate, and even enlarge without sacrificing parts of the original image.” — Dan Rubin, Photographer, Designer

Ratings and Reviews

This app is amazing !


In all my years using digital design tools, I've never seen an app that works this well, straight out of the box. I've used it like in the screenshots to straighten rotated photos and it adds in the corners like magic. Obviously if you had someone's hand at the end of the frame it may add an extra finger! But, it adds it blended so well, almost Photoshop-like perfection. Zoom in and you will see what I mean. For trees and grass and floors it works like a miracle.
A little tip : If your picture has a frame added, crop the frame off first, then anticrop it. If you don't you'll get a repeating frame-like artifact around the edge.
I have used this to change orientation on a few pictures of my baby daughter and it works a charm, drawing in extra surroundings with no noticeable join.

Effectively does what it says at a reasonable price.


For 69p you get on your iPad the Photoshop process of increasing the canvas size then making a selection of the pixels at the edges of your image and then duplicating those pixels into the larger area. What Anticrop does can be done in the Photoshop Touch app but it requires a lot more steps and time.

This is always a pretty useful thing to be able to do when trying to balance a composition you may not have framed how you wish initially and you either say want to introduce more negative space or get the main points of interest closer to the rule of third lines and so forth.

This app doesn't add any new additional information it is merely duplicating pixels that already exist at the edges of your images so obviously this has specific applications where it works really well and others where it wont look right, particularly if the edges of your image may be busy with a wide variation of different lines, patterns or shapes.

Five stars because it's reasonably priced, simple and quick to use, and effective in the right circumstances which to me is worth 69p.

Works very well


This app is useful for enhancing or enlarging certain photos. It works well on expanding features such as the sky, grass, horizon and other elements with minor detail in it.

Use common sense when working with the app; it cannot magically expand people or create the other half of a person's face, nor can it add in the missing cars from a landscape city shot. If the area near the edge of the photo has a distinctive pattern then the app will struggle to replicate this exactly.

This app is a great tool for enhancing and adjusting your photos and is excellent value for your money, but be realistic with your expectations.
