Black Highlighter makes it easy to hide text in images you want to share. Black Highlighter’s “Magic Highlighting” feature automatically detects text in images and helps you make nice, even redactions in your photos and screenshots.
Black Highlighter works with your favorite apps to hide text from anywhere.
Highlight Last Screenshot is an example shortcut that finds the last screenshot that was taken on your iPhone or iPad and opens it in Black Highlighter.
