APP of the WEEK

LENS DIS­TOR­TION (IOS, free with in-app pur­chases)

Gloucestershire Echo - - TECH NOW -

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.
