Camera of a phone is a very important asset to capture precious moments. People take photos of everything, food, pets, and landscapes. We all know that our photos are incredibly important to us, those snaps that were fuzzy, in low light, or those that just simply don’t look right annoy us. When the moment is gone, it’s gone forever, so that’s why we’re here to help you get the most out of your Android camera with these handy free Android camera apps that runs on android devices and has the capacity to improve your device’s camera quality.
The Camera360 is hugely popular on the Google Play Store, offering a comprehensive camera app capable of pretty much anything. It uses a lens-filter system that can be applied before a picture is taken, meaning you don’t have to wait until later to see whether your picture is fixable by adding a cheeky filter. It contains a huge variety of options and effects, even if they aren’t all entirely useful. The Camera360 Ultimate also includes a “passport photo” function, which gives you a quick tutorial on how to get the best passport photo, and then provides a stencil of a picture to use as a reference. This is a fantastic and well thought-out addition. There is also a beautiful gesture menu overlay for white balance, exposure, ISO and sharpness, which is slick, effective and feels great to work with.
The Pixlr Express needs to be used in conjunction with another camera app, as it’s just an image editor. You’ll be hard pressed to find more image editing options anywhere on Android, ranging from the strange low-poly and fire effects, to the typical gamut of photo fixers and alterations. It has the option of automatic image correction, and adjustments such as heal, focus and splash, it feels like a near-Photoshop level experience. Some of the effects and features are more useful than others, the “stickers” were ever a good idea for photo-editing and there are plenty to tinker with to get your pictures looking polished. You can also add text to your photos with a number of different font-styles.
Despite the fact that Instagram is a huge social network of amateur and professional photographers Instagram’s camera app is a brilliant tool by itself. The genius of Instagram is that it is so easy to improve every photo you take. Some serious photographers turn their nose up at the “quick fix” that its filters provide, but to the casual audience its impressive see life given to dreary looking snaps in seconds. However, as a photography tool it’s not nearly as comprehensive as some of the competition, but Instagram has used a seemingly simple interface to hook millions of users, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The Snapseed is another image editor which doesn’t have its own dedicated camera function, but once you take a picture, the outcome you can create is fantastic. Similar to Instragram, you add filters and effects in post to improve your images, but Snapseed uses a unique and intuitive gesture system to do this. You select an image option, like texture strength or saturation, by swiping up and down over an image, and then swipe left and right to add or subtract the amount of it in your picture. It’s completely intuitive and takes mere seconds to completely transform your pictures.
At the end, your images may look quite exaggerated or obviously edited, but it’s an undeniably impressive to see what can be achieved with just a simple app.
Google Camera has a minimalist design; it shows only two on-screen buttons when you want to shoot something, the others being hidden in a side panel which you use a gesture to bring out. Google Camera’s 360 degree panoramic feature is really very impressive. You rotate your camera right or left after taking your initial shot, and you must trace white balls across the screen as you go around maintaining the correct orientation. When it did work, the outcome was fantastic. The app is capable of creating incredibly high resolution panoramic pictures which looked seamless, and it’s the best method for taking panorama that one have ever used.
The Google Camera’s Android version requirement varies depending on the device and the steep requirement may stop some users being able to get it, but if your device can handle it, it’s well worth checking out. It’s simple to navigate, user-friendly and clever too.
These are some of the apps that can help you in enhancing the quality of your images.
