Camera+ Update Brings Layered Effects to iPhone, New Filter Packs and More

Posted by · 6646 views · Translate
Camera+ has received a major update today bringing effects layering to the iPhone, letting you quickly add/remove multiple effects per photo. Camera+ is also releasing a Hollywood Effects pack that has 9 new effects and borders inspired by popular movies and TV shows for the iPhone and iPad

The team behind Camera+ says it took many attempts to finally get effects layering working intuitively on the iPhone screen. The full change log is listed below which has other additions and enhancements.

Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or someone who’s barely touched a camera, Camera+ will make you love taking photos.

WHAT'S NEW:
Effects layering
In this new version, we’ve brought the iPhone and iPad apps one big step closer to each other by adding effects layering to the iPhone. Now you can easily combine any number of Camera+’s effects to create some cool, new looks. Mix, match, and blend until you get the perfect combination. You’re limited only by your creativity.

It took us three major attempts (and countless smaller iterations) to get effects layering to feel just right and intuitive on the smaller surface of the iPhone. We’ve come up with a pretty neat UI to accomplish it and we’re confident that you’re going to be pleased with the end result.

Hollywood Effects Pack
It’s been quite a while since we’ve released a new effects pack for Camera+. Over 2½ years, actually. Well, we’ve got a real treat for you in this new version! Introducing the Hollywood Effects Pack… 9 stunning new effects and borders inspired by your favorite movies and TV shows.

Lisa Bettany and Wolfgang Bartelme combined their creative juices and worked really hard to bring you this awesome new pack.

Here’s the list of the effects included in this new pack:

• Neo
• Action
• Enterprise
• Amélie
• Dreamstate
• Madison Ave
• Home Movie
• Gotham
• Silent Movie

And here’s the new border list:
• Poster
• DVD
• VHS
• Letterbox
• HDTV
• CRT
• Super 8
• 16 mm
• Super 35

You can demo the Hollywood Effects Pack for free. When you decide to purchase it, you can unlock all its cinematic goodness for a paltry 99¢. Get it now, before we receive 9 cease and desist orders and it’s too late!

[Please note that the inclusion of the DVD border caused quite the rift within the company. There was an actual knife-fight resulting from it. So even if you hate it, out of appreciation for the sacrifices Three-Fingered Louie made for you, at least pretend to like it.]

Miscellaneous
Effects layering and the Hollywood Effects Pack are the big, new things in 3.9, but we’ve got a bunch of additional features and bug fixes we’ve also included…

In keeping with the theme of the Hollywood Effects Pack, we’ve added a couple of new widescreen cinematic crops… 1.85:1 and 2.39:1. Now you can crop your pics to feel just like they belong on the big screen. Only chumps and sucka MCs limit their crops to just squares. MAKE IT WIIIIIDE!!

Camera+ now utilizes your Facebook account if you have it setup in iOS settings, making for quick and easy setup within Camera+.

Using Camera+ on that weird, new iPod touch that only has a front-facing camera would rip a tiny hole in the space-time continuum, teleporting the user into a parallel universe where they became an Android user. We’re deeply, deeply sorry. In any case, that’s now fixed in this version.

It’s always nice to reevaluate things and polish any weak spots and we’ve done just that in this version. We’ve made a few small usability improvements that should make Camera+ feel just a bit more intuitive to use.

If you’ve purchased any effects packs in Camera+ and have multiple devices with iCloud turned-on, your purchases will now conveniently be synced for you. It’s a very welcome improvement over the whole “restore purchases” rigmarole.

Here’s one that’s a bit perplexing… in Camera+ 3.8, we added support for several languages in addition to English. One that we didn’t add was Brazilian Portuguese, the native language of Brazil. Yet, since that release, the country that Camera+ has consistently ranked the highest in is… Brazil. Go figure. But for this release, we actually have added the native Brazilian Portuguese and we’re willing to wager that Camera+ tanks in the rankings in Brazil.
