Tech giant Microsoft has announced the launch of a new photo app which the company has described a “selfie and portrait enhancement application,” designed to enable users to capture perfect ‘selfies.’

The ‘free’ new photo app -- initially only for users of iOS devices -- is appropriately called ‘Microsoft Selfie,’ and it is now available at the Apple App Store. It supports the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Microsoft has not disclosed any expected timeline for the availability of the app for Android users.

The simple-to-use Microsoft Selfie app basically enables iPhone users to edit their selfies like a professional, to as to make them appear much better. The users of the app simply have to click a selfie – or choose any other photo from the camera roll of their handset – and then process it right within the app.

The Instagram-like editing features of the new Microsoft Selfie app take a number of factors into account before making simple enhancements to the users’ photos. These factors include the users’ age, gender, skin tone, lighting, and noise, among others. In addition, for the post-processing job, the app gives users a total of 13 different filters, though they can use one feature at a given time.

According to the description on the app page, Microsoft Selfie app takes several variables into account, “applies different models automatically and finishes enhancement with just a single click.”
