Photo apps have always been the favorites to be downloaded at the iTunes App Store. Here we bring across another amazing retro photo-processing app Pixlr-o-matic for the iPhone and iPad from Autodesk, which besides being easy to use has over 2 million combinations to make your photos look spectacular. And above all it is ?free? for download.
Pixlr-o-matic app is so easy to use that even an amateur can create stunning, impressive photos with a touch of aesthetic professionalism. The USP of Pixlr-o-matic is that besides being a simple and easy-to-use darkroom app it allows you to seamlessly add an effect, overlay and border to get that retro, grunge, elegant or sophisticated look ? and all that in just 3 simple steps.
How it works
Pixlr-o-matic lets you experiment with 3 samples besides providing a thumbnail of the last photo you worked with, which you can tap to adjust the filters and effects. You will find the app displaying the photo with a ruler below it, soon after you take a photo or upload a shot.
The ruler contains the filters, lighting effects and frames. The app offers you an option to choose from 25 film filters, 30 lighting effects and 31 frames. You come across effects option from faded and warm film filters to light leaks, sparkles, and rainbows ? many of which can also be found in similar photo app like Instagram and Hipstamatic.
Here you can apply only one filter of each type; which transforms your photo almost instantly, showing you its effect. However, the app unfortunately does not allow you to adjust the intensity of the effects; nor can you crop or rotate an image.
Set the Right mood with Pixlr-o-matic app
Choose the right ?effects? on your Pixlr app to help you adjust the perfect mood ? amplify the tone, cool it down or add surreal shades. You may also choose to use overlays to add drama, sparkle, neon, light leaks and grunge.
The app allows you to pick a style that suits you the best. So, while choosing the right border helps you give an elegant finish off to your photo process, randomizer helps you select an effect, overlay, and border – all in a single swipe.
One of the most striking features of this Retro Photo-processing app is that it works even sans a camera. Just select a photo from your iPhone or iPad iPod Touch and start applying filters. However, if your device has a camera, you can also snap a new picture from within the app.
Moreover, you can directly share your photo with your friends through Facebook, imm.io, dropbox, iTunes, Flickr or email. And if you still think that you want more, then activate Pixlr-o-matic PLUS to get access to the complete and growing catalog of additional effect, overlay and border packs.
