APP of the WEEK
LENS DISTORTION (IOS, free with in-app purchases)
WE ALL like a good photo filter app on our smartphones – how else are we going to make our photos look like they were taken with a 40-year-old instant camera?
Lens Distortions is a photo filter app, with a difference. It doesn’t change the look and feel of your photos by adding colour and light adjustments, it does it by allowing you to add elements to the images – like lens flare. These effects also include snow, fog, and rain – and the results are impressive.
All the effects are made from images captured in the real world, and are fully customisable for intensity and size, so you can get just the look you are after. All provide instant depth to an image, and somehow give it a classic sheen. You can get a decent range of effects for free, but to download the full range, you’ll need to sign up to a subscription for 99p a month – a bargain if you need your photos to stand out from the crowd.
