What's New in Version 1.4.1
Fixes to ensure you can keep sharing your images to Tumblr
Quick, easy to use, good range of effects
I was after something for creating some vintage colour effects and this ticks the boxes for useability and functionality. I shoot raw files and it handles these easily (approx 20mb).
The feature that I like best is the ability to vary the intensity of the effect that you have selected via a slider control. This means you can be quite subtle about what you do. Along with the range of filters is a selection of borders - these are fun to use and feature effects like film / negative borders and grungy frames. One area where things could be improved is the scaling / repositioning tool - for example to repostion a pic into a square frame. While resizing/postioning, the image is blanked out ‘behind’ the frame so you dont actually see through the frame to the image until you have completed the reposition.
Really good selection of filters and decent frames, good level of control over them too. The downscaling of images is really disappointing, from a standard iPhone 25cm image to 12cm is not great at all, I wouldn’t have purchsed it if I’d known that would happen. It means it's is really only suitable for mobile use, not for desktop or printing purposes. Also I think it would be great to be the choice between Square and portrait borders for all styles.
Favourite Photo App
I’ve been using this app for some time - it’s my ‘go to’ photo effect app. The filters are very high-quality and the intensity can be varied, and the frames are great as well. It would be good to have more control over the aspect ratio of the frames, but thats about all. Simple and effective.
