The sim­plest im­age fil­ter­ing app we’ve used, Shift ap­plies ran­dom com­bi­na­tions of bright­ness, colour and con­trast to your im­age when­ever you press the Shuf­fle but­ton.

Three con­trol points are placed on your photo, which can be moved to al­ter the lo­ca­tion of fil­ter ef­fects or zoomed to widen or lo­calise the area be­ing fil­tered, while slid­ers at the bot­tom con­trol colour and in­ten­sity.

It’s in­cred­i­bly fast and easy to use, and you can lose quite a lot of time tap­ping the Shuf­fle but­ton just to see what com­bi­na­tion it comes up with next. Par­tic­u­larly pleas­ing com­bi­na­tions can be saved as pre­sets to use on other pho­tos, and nat­u­rally, cre­ations can be posted di­rectly to so­cial me­dia.

The fil­ters aren’t par­tic­u­larly sub­tle, but the va­ri­ety cre­ated by shuf­fling then ad­just­ing means you may never see the same one twice. Ian Even­den

Fast and sim­ple to use, but you need to re­ally like fil­ter­ing your pic­tures to get the most out of it.
