Old-school photography gets a new school makeover
by on April 10, 2012
It’s been a long time coming for Instagram to hit Android and when it did land on Google Play, it managed to rack up 1 million downloads in just 24 hours. With this in mind, the popularity of camera applications which add an old-school twist to photographs is plain to see – and while there’s a tonne of them on Google Play, none do the job better than Instagram.
Interestingly, Instagram is meant to also be a social network, where fellow Instagramers can show off their photos to one and another but this aspect of the app doesn’t really work and you can simply opt out if you want to – although this is set to change with the Facebook acquisition. What does work is the myriad filters on show that can be added to a photograph after it’s taken. And you can also add them to photographs that you took well before you loaded the app on to your Android smartphone.
Once you have added a filter – there’s 18 available – you then have the choice of uploading the image to a number of social networks, including Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
The app makes taking pictures easy and no matter how bad an image, there always seems to be one filter that will perk it up, which is great considering the app is completely free.
