Are you getting a little bored of Instagram’s Mayfair feature? We don’t blame you. Well how about the ability to add gradients, effects and contouring to your photographs instead?
That’s what Enlight offers. As well as a decent selection of preset filters (all of which offer adjustable intensity), there are brushes, frames and effects such as Sketchify that you manually apply to your images, using a finger to ‘paint in’ the areas of effect. There’s plenty of scope for the tweaking and layering of effects, and doing so is tactile and enjoyable – although it’s more time-consuming than the simple snap, filter, share many of us are now used to.
It might take a while to achieve your desired look at first, especially if you’re a perfectionist, but when you get there, there’s a sense of satisfaction that Instagram’s easy wins will never give you.
Enlight offers a wealth of processing effects for photos, giving you full control of your images.
