AntiCrop is an iPhone and iPad app that will extend the background your photos as a method of "uncropping" them. It's similar to Content Aware Fill in Photoshop CS5 and works surprisingly well.
When I came across this app I was immediately negative and didn't believe it would work very well. Well, I'm impressed how it handled the photo above even though it's not an ideal candidate for this type of manipulation. This app isn't intended to be used on photos with complex backgrounds, but even though my photo had some buildings in the background, AntiCrop did a pretty good job! Sure, if you look closely, you can see some weird stuff happening with the buildings, but most people won't be inspecting the photo and not even notice.
Inside this app lies a highly intellectual content filling tool that adds pixels to the expanded area of your photo. It’s highly recommended for all kinds of backgrounds and homogeneous textures. Great results are achievable when working with nature landscapes, backgrounds and much more. If you want to make some unique creations, AntiCrop can help there, too. All you need is imagination and a willingness to experiment.
