New App Takes Photo Editing Out of Your Hands

NBC 5 Today Team Mendr Photo Newsroom

It seems everyday there's a new app launched for our smart phones. It can be easy to get lost in the shuffle. That's not the case for a Dallas based start-up that is taking photo-editing to a new level.

Mendr is a photo editing app launched by two friends right here in North Texas. The app is being called the "Uber" for photographs. Here's how it works.

  • Download the Mendr app
  • Create an account
  • Select a photo that may needs some work
  • Then choose exactly what edits you want made to the photo, or simply turn it over to an editor and let them do the work for you
  • Once the edits are done, you will get a notification right on your phone
  • Download the edited photo
  • Share the new image with all your friends

Cost vary from $2 to $30 depending on the amount of work that's done.

We put the Mendr editors to the test with this photo of the NBC 5 Today Show team.


You can see in the edited version, the team is now in the middle of AT&T Stadium. Also, Tony Romo is standing right there next to Marc, Deborah & Grant.


Mendr will employ freelance photo editors all around the world, but it's not a job that just anyone can do. The company put all freelance editors through a skills test, making sure the photo edits meet the Mendr style.

The app launched on Friday and is now available to download in the App Store.
