It’s all about one thing... great photos!
Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or someone who’s barely touched a camera, Camera+ will make you love taking photos.
Touch Exposure & Focus
Set exposure separately from focus. You can now easily control how light or dark your shots come out.
Use the Stabilizer to steady your iPhone and get the sharpest photos you can. There are countless uses for the Timer including taking the highest-quailty self-portraits. Capture all the action by using Burst to take rapid streams of shots.
Up to 6× zoom with advanced digital processing provides you with quality that simply blows away the competition.
How many times have you wanted to take a pic of yourself in a dark room but couldn’t. Well, now you can!
Use the Horizon Level to eliminate taking crooked shots.
Clarity is one of the biggest breakthroughs to happen to image processing in a long time. Clarity analyzes your photos and makes several intelligent adjustments that magically bring out details and breathe life into dull photos. With Clarity, you’ll stop throwing out bad photos… you’ll be amazed to see what it can do to photos that you’d typically consider unusable, like shots that came out too dark.
Most modern digital cameras all have scene modes to help you get the best photos for your particular situation. With Camera+, you get to choose from several scene modes including Food, Sunset, Night, Portrait, Beach, and many more.
Professional photographer, Lisa Bettany created a slew of stunningly beautiful effects. Make your photos shimmer with “HDR”… get down and dirty with “Grunge”… fill your pics with emotion and despair with “So Emo”. And this is just the tip of the iceberg… there are dozens of 1-touch effects for you to experiment with.
All the pics you take in Camera+ go in the innovative Lightbox where you can quickly and easily skim through them and get rid of bad shots. You save only the photos you’re satisfied with so that your camera roll stays neat and clean.
Whether you want to show your results to your friends and family or the whole world, Camera+ has got you covered. Proudly share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. Or go the more personal route and email or message them from right within the app.
iCloud Lightbox sync
Automatically sync your Camera+ photos between all of your devices. Shoot all day on your iPhone… and then edit at night on your iPad.
If you didn’t line-up your shot perfectly when you took it, you can easily fix that with Camera+. And when you want to get a bit creative, we setup a bunch of popular crop sizes for you. With a single tap, you can make your pics square, 4×6, 8×10, and more.
With Camera+ you get several great border designs, from simple black and white borders to more gritty designs, you’ll be able to add wonderful finishing touches.
Have some fun with your photos by putting captions on them. It’s a great way to really personalize your favorite shots.
With iOS 8 right around the corner, we’ve got some pretty big things planned for the near future, both with the iPhone and iPad versions of Camera+. To tide you over until then, we’ve just put out Camera+ 5.2 with a few very nice additions, along with a handful of bug fixes.
The first thing to note is that we’ve added a new adjustment to the Vignette effect in The Lab. So now, in addition to being able to adjust the intensity of the vignette, you have control over the size of it. It makes it a lot more flexible of a tool to use.
We’ve also made a few improvements to the Soft Focus and Film Grain effects in The Lab. The end result is that they look far more realistic now and your photos will look a lot better when you use them.
Oh Clarity Pro… he can be like a petulant teen who’s always trying to be the center of attention. This time around, we discovered that low intensity levels could get inappropriately boosted under certain circumstances. That won’t happen again. This isn’t the first time Clarity Pro has acted-up in a similar manner, so we’ve taken away his car privileges for a month to teach him a lesson.
To continue their ongoing mandate of paranoia to make everything more “secure” while making everyone’s lives much more difficult in the process, Yahoo changed the way 3rd-party apps like Camera+ access Flickr. This, of course, broke Flickr sharing in Camera+. It’s now working properly once again. We tried contacting Marissa Mayer so that we could get a bit of a heads-up when something like this happens again in the future. Unfortunately, she’s hunkered-down somewhere in Texas in a bunker with a cache of assault rifles, so she couldn’t be reached for comment.
So again, get ready for some cool, new things in Camera+ very soon. We’ve been slaving away at it since Apple announced iOS 8 and we’re sure you’re going to enjoy using it as much as we’re enjoying creating it for you!
