Using an algorithm, the appropriately titled AntiCrop app takes iPhone pictures and – for lack of a better phrase – zooms them out.

By recognizing similar aspects of a certain photo, the $0.99 app is able to build upon the image and essentially “guess” what it would look like if it were zoomed out. As a result, AntiCrop isn’t good for enlarging photos with chaotic backgrounds, but it works well for landscapes and portraits. The app also helps straighten photos, and users can choose between a variety of sizes or borders for their new pictures.
