Let’s take this new photo editing app for a spin.
Camu Photo Editing App for Android Review
Camu from developers Sumoing is available for free on the Play Store. Once you download and open it up, you’ll notice a clean interface with three prominent icons at the bottom of the screen; Video, Photo, and Gallery as well as a 3 dotted menu button and a back to front button at the top of the screen. The striking feature of Camu is that the filters can be enabled by a swipe across the screen. Once you have picked out the filter of your choice, just click away to capture some cool photos.
The unobtrusive 3 dotted menu at the bottom of the frame provides access to some interesting photo options such as 4 collage, split photo, blur, and auto timer. You can pick one of these options and then swipe to the left or right to choose a filter. The whole process is so simple and convenient that you’ll be capturing some really cool photos in no time at all. If you can’t make up your mind about which filters to choose, you can capture your shots and apply the filters later on.
Selfie lovers will appreciate the fact that Camu has an intuitive Auto timer mode for taking the perfect selfies. In this mode, the app will capture a shot only when no movement is detected. There are also options to super focus specific parts while blurring out the rest and create a collage of 2, 3 or 4 images. Once you have captured an image you can also add text, pre designed slogans, and tags to the photos, and of course, you can choose whether to save, share or trash your captures. Camu also lets you apply the live filters to videos and change them midway if you like although you can’t video-edit at the moment.
Camu’s photo editing options and filters are unique and you’ll love trying them out. However, their options are rather limited at the moment, which photo editing enthusiasts around the world will not appreciate. That said, Camu is still a good photo editing app that you’ll want to try out. If you do, here is the download link.
