Microsoft Selfie is a selfie and photo enhancement application available on iOS, web and WeChat. Backed by computer vision technology, Microsoft Selfie intelligently considers age, gender, skin tone, lighting, and many other variables all with one click. Users can transform average photos into enhanced, ideal portraits in seconds.
- Intelligent Portrait Enhancement: The app intelligently considers age, gender, skin tone and lighting when enhancing the portraits, and it will make the result much more natural.
- Noise reduction: In dim light condition, the app would automatically enable “Denoise” mode, and effectively reduce noise by using burst shots. When “Denoise” mode is enabled, you can see “Denoise” on the screen.
- Auto exposure: It can do automatic exposure correction and photo clarifying, especially for backlit photos. This function can be achieved when user chooses the “Boost” filter mode.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t Work With iOS11
I used to love this app. But since the iOS11 update, can’t give the app access to photos anymore. It says to enable access in Settings, but no such settings exist in new iOS update. I’m very disappointed. I realize this is probably Apple’s fault, and I’ve contacted them about it already (to no avail). But I wish Microsoft app developers would put a little pressure on Apple as well, or at least configure a way around this problem.
Easiest best photo enhancement app
This is by far the best photo enhancement app I have ever used. It is so much better than anything else I have ever seen in automatically and intelligently making your photos BETTER not just different that there really is nothing else out there that even comes close. When I see the lower reviews I realized that sometimes the reviews are just worthless. This isn’t a goofy Snapchat filter. It’s a serious digital portrait enhancement. Nothing else comes close.
The only thing I have found to criticize is that the AI algorithm has trouble with tilted faces or faces turned too far in any one direction. Maybe some of the reviews are from people who didn’t know that? Because then the program just doesn’t do anything except affect the tint a little bit. Pick a picture where you are looking more directly at the camera and you will see the magic. Takes 10-20 years off perfectly and instantly.
Great Self-Picture Taking Application
I saw this app when I was browsing through the Microsoft apps and I thought that I would download it and offer my thoughts after using it for a little while. I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised with how easy, successful and interesting this app has proven to be. I think this is one of those must-have apps for anyone that frequently takes pictures of themselves or with other people. The simple, subtle and noticeable difference that the Microsoft selfie app offers in comparison to a normal selfie generated from the iOS default camera is astonishing. I would recommend this app to everyone. Well done, Microsoft.

Microsoft has released the Microsoft selfie app in the App Store. The app polishes new and old selfies automatically before sending them in the photo world.
Just before the end of the year, Microsoft releases a selfie app for iOS. It sounds like a joke, but in addition to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook, now is also available for download Microsoft selfie. The app is unfortunately just as sexy as you’d expect from an average Microsoft app.
In the app, you can choose to create a new selfie, or use a photo from the camera roll on your device. After some bleeps, the app will automatically polish the photo. You get a single slider served to strengthen or weaken the effect. Here you control as the app include noise reduction and exposure. To complete it, you can choose a color filter.
However, the most important part of polishing is what Microsoft calls the “Intelligent Enhancement. The result is mainly because your skin is smoothed and the final result looks somewhat fake. Small wrinkles and pimples disappear like snow in the sun. If the effect is what you seek, then Microsoft selfie is working properly. However, the app feels mostly like a strange New Year joke.
Download Microsoft Selfie
Microsoft selfie is free to download in the App Store. The app requires 56,8MB free space and you need iOS 8 or higher to be able to polish your selfies.
