# How to Cut and Paste Photos on iPhone

In today’s digital age, our smartphones have become essential tools for capturing and sharing moments through photos. With the advancement of technology, iPhone has made it easier for users to edit and manipulate photos right from their devices. One common editing task is cutting and pasting photos on iPhone, and in this article, we will guide you through the process step by step.

## Step 1: Open the Photos App

The first step in cutting and pasting photos on your iPhone is to open the Photos app. This app houses all the pictures saved on your device, making it easy to access the images you want to work with.

## Step 2: Select the Photo

Once you have opened the Photos app, navigate to the photo you wish to cut and paste. Tap on the photo to select it; a series of editing options will appear at the bottom of your screen.

## Step 3: Enter Edit Mode

After selecting the desired photo, tap on the “Edit” option located at the top right corner of your screen. This action will take you into edit mode where you can make various adjustments to your photo.

## Step 4: Use Markup Tools

Within edit mode, look for the icon that resembles three dots enclosed in a circle – this is typically located at the top right corner near your photo. Tap on this icon and select “Markup.” The Markup tool provides options for drawing shapes, adding text, highlighting areas, and most importantly – cutting parts of your photo.

## Step 5: Cut Out Part of Photo

To cut out a specific part of your photo using Markup tools, select either “Pen” or “Highlighter” from the toolbar at the bottom. Trace around the area you want to remove with either tool until it’s highlighted in a color different from your image.

## Step 6: Copy or Cut Selection

Once you’ve outlined and highlighted the section of your image that needs cutting out, tap on “Copy” or “Cut” from within Markup tools (this option may vary depending on which version of iOS you’re using). This action copies or cuts out your selection from the original image.

## Step 7: Paste Selection onto New Image

After cutting out your desired section from one image, go back to ‘Photos’ app by clicking ‘Done’, then tap ‘Save’. Now find a new image where you want to paste this selection – tap ‘Edit’, click ‘+’ button/icon atop-right corner which allows adding new content – finally hit ‘Paste’ & adjust accordingly!

By following these steps carefully and utilizing built-in features like Markup tools within iOS devices such as iPhone, users can easily cut out sections of photos and paste them onto other images seamlessly. Experiment with these techniques to enhance your photo editing skills and unleash creativity!
