iOS 10 has given iPhone users a ton of new innovative features, but if you're a huge fan of snapping photos and editing your iPhoneography masterpieces, then Markup has probably been a favorite tool of yours.

Markup can be used for a ton of things, including adding text and callouts to photos, but one thing that Markup can also do is turn your hand-drawn shapes into clean-cut art for your photos!

Here's how to draw specific shapes in the Markup editor for iPhone and iPad!

How to draw specific shapes in the Markup editor

There are several different types of shapes you can draw in the Markup editor that will be recognized, including a square, speech bubble, thinking bubble, circle, heart, triangle, transparent arrow, filled-in arrow, start, and some polygon shapes.

  1. Launch Photos from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the photo you would like to edit.
  3. Tap the edit button. It looks like a hamburger menu along the bottom of your screen.

    Select a picture to draw on with Markup

  4. Tap the More (...) button.

  7. Draw your shape with your finger. Make sure to draw your shape in its entirety without lifting your finger off the screen. If you list your finger, Markup will not register the shape.
  8. Tap the shape suggestion that appears on screen to change your shape into a clean-cut star, heart, arrow, etc.
  9. Pinch and adjust the shape until you are happy with how it looks.
  10. Tap done in the upper right corner when you are finished.
