How a New iPhone Feature Can Help You Digitally Catalog Your Wardrobe
Your outfits are awesome. Too awesome, in fact, to hold knowledge of them all inside your head. Posting your OOTDs (outfit of the day) on Insta and TikTok is the traditional way to catalog your daily looks, but, if you have an iPhone running iOS 16, there’s a more effective—not to mention cooler—method you could be using.
Among the many new features shipping with iOS 16 is the ability to instantly copy the subject of a photo and paste it wherever you like. The feature is remarkably easy to use: Simply touch and hold on the subject of any given photo, wait for iOS to outline it, then drag your finger and watch the subject lift off the page like magic. You can then use a second finger to open any app you like and drag the image into it, or copy the subject to save it to your iPhone’s clipboard. It’s a simple yet powerful feature, sure to be used in many creative ways.
One of those ways is exceedingly creative. TikTok user macaulay_flower shared his method for cataloguing the many outfits in his wardrobe. He still takes a photo, as many sharing an OOTD would do, but he doesn’t stop there. Instead, he uses iOS 16’s new photo feature to copy himself and his outfit out of the photo before pasting the fit in an existing note, complete with every other outfit he’s already cataloged.
He can then tap on one of the outfits to check it out up close. If he wants to see another, he can easily swipe to the next.

After you’ve copied and pasted yourself out of the original photo, you can safely delete it without worrying about losing the outfit. That way, your Photos app needn’t be cluttered with a thousand pictures of your outfits; it’s all neatly contained in a single note.
If you’re someone with a lot of outfits but no clear way to keep them organized, this method might be right up your alley. It’s also perfect for shopping: You can freely order a bunch of new clothes, try them on, and catalog them in the Notes app. Then, swipe through and compare and contrast how you feel about each. You could even share the note with others to get their opinions, rather than spam them with photo after photo. (Bonus: You’ll have a handy catalogue of yous you can use as reaction images or for meme-making purposes.)
