It’s no use even trying to imagine how many gazillions of selfies are on the Net by now. Why, you yourself probably have thousands of them (if you are an avid party-goer, traveler or just narcissist) – and we bet you’ve felt more than once that they all seem the same. Don’t worry though – check out these apps and spice up your selfies!
1. Selfie Camera
If anything could be named a magic wand, for millions of iPhone users it’s the selfie stick. But what’s cool can be made even better, and Selfie Camera is just the app you need to get the most out of your iPhone and selfie stick. Strike the best pose, give your smartphone a light shake – voila, the photo-shoot begins! You can specify the delay (3, 5 or 10 sec) so that you’d have time to prepare; moreover, the app allows to capture up to 5 images in one burst – the more to choose the perfect selfie from! To enhance your pics, Selfie Camera offers instant enhancement and fine-tuning, as well as a variety of retouching tools.
2. Ghost Lens+Selfie
If you’re into eerie atmospheric photo-shoots, Ghost Lens will sure help to impress your friends and subscribers – with this app you can create a photo or a video featuring your ‘ghost’. There’s a multitude of filters to make it look like your ‘spirit’ is wandering outside your body, or floating in the air, etc. What’s even greater is that you can adjust any alteration just the way you like it. You don’t even have to prepare photos in advance – start the app, snap as many shots as you need, and get spooky and creative!
Having fun is cool enough, but what if you’re into meticulous post-processing? You cannot carry Photoshop around with you. The answer, however, is simple: install photo editor Filterra and edit away to your heart’s content. As stated on the official Filterra website, this app stands out from the crowd as it seeks to bring pro level tools to everyone, at the same time making enhancement simpler and quicker. Filterra offers more than enough powerful functions to adjust your selfies and other photos – to the extent that you’ll be at a loss which variant is better. Should you need even more custom-made tools, you can get additional bundles from the Store.
Did you ever happen to resent Mother Nature for that mole right on your eyelid, or the unwieldy shape of your eyebrows, or the height of the cheekbones? There’s a solution, far cheaper and safer than plastic surgery, – Facetune! The app comes for a small fee – $3.99, but it is sure worth the money. Smooth out any imperfections, alter facial features, add color to eyes and lips and hair; it allows to reduce red- and white-eye effect, retouch stray hairs and dark eye circles and much more in just a couple of taps! And if your selfie is perfect the way it is, you can simply add more focus, adjust lighting as well as dress it up with textures, special effects and frames.
To manifest your wild streak (especially if you’re a cat person), there’s TigerEyes – a free app allowing you to transform your face into a wild cat’s (other animals are available too, albeit for a small fee). Loads of fun guaranteed!
Photography is a thing you just cannot stop doing; and even if you feel stuck or unimpressed with your performance, there’ll always some handy app to inspire new experiments. Keep up with the trends and stay tuned with the software, and capture and share the moments! Good luck with your incredible and creative selfies!
