Super Retro for 31 Days

20120101-201044.jpg

The photo up above was taken and edited with an app called Super Retro. You can pick this app up for $1.99. I wanted to this month long project with the app so I can give this app a fair shot. It great to spend a month long project on apps sso you can really know how the actual app works. I’ve also found a new way of editing with Super Retro. This is still a new app with lots of room to grow. It wouldn’t surprise me if this app became a top seller in the app store. The developers lured me with curiousity and intrigue with a simple ad on iPhoneography. Like everyone else I signed up to get this app for free but instead paid for the app when it came out in the app store. I’m going to go in great detail about this app, the pros and cons. Let’s get started with the blog…shall we.

Super Retro 31/31

This will be the demo photo used in this blog and it was the last photo I took in 2011. I saw this monkey glove laying around the counter at work, so I thought hmmmmmm lets take a photo of this glove on someone’s hand. I find all sorts of interesting things to photograph at work. The only real perk at working at Target, besides the great friendships I’ve made over the years with many, many and many employees.

Camera Roll-1606

Start up page for Super Retro, it starts up kind of slow. I have an iPhone 4 and not to sure how it runs on the iPhone 4S.

Camera Roll-1607

I tapped on the lower left side of the screen. What will pop up is the library stored in the photo app itself. The photo you Shoot with this app is stored in the app itself. But if you the setting for save original picture to the camera rook setting on, you can use this app as just a stand alone camera only app. To me that would defeat the purpose of having this app so I have that turned off on this app.

Settings options.

Camera Roll-1610

Share image option.

Camera Roll-1609

Ok, I’m going to pull up my monkey fingers photo again. I want to show how to edit your photo with this cool camera app.

Camera Roll-1613

You will see all kind of editing options with this app. Just like Camera+ has Clarity, Super Retro app has something called “Enhance.” Enhance is the “light bulb” button you tap on, what it does is tone map you image. It’s like having a simple version of Dynamic Light build in your app. There is a slide bar so you can adjust your tone map.

The heart in the box are 2 pages of build in presets for editing, you can also make your own custom presets too.

Camera Roll-1615

This app has a great variety of frames to choose from, you can also chose 3 different colors of most of the frame settings. Only one you can’t choose a color is the Viewfinder Frame.

Camera Roll-1616

The paint brush in the box is for different light sources, light leaks and retro faded color types. You can choose the defult setting or use the slider bar for how much effects you want on your photo.

Camera Roll-1616

The rabbit out of the hat box is for blurs, contrast and other types of edits you to add to you photo. It’s like the nut and bolts of minimal editing. My favorite effect is using Lens Blur and add Blur onto of each other. That gives your photo a really nice looking Orton Effect. Now if you want to know more about this really cool camera app just click HERE this will take you to their web page.

Camera Roll-1617

Coming soon to this app is the Store, where they will add extra features, this app has had an update and a new added preset called “Lanana.” So far this app has great potential of being one of the great photo/camera editing app. The only thing it lacks is a grunge and texture effects but in time it would not surprise me in the future they will add those effects. This will be one app to watch out for and add to your collection.

Last thing I wanted to add is my favorite options editing with this app are Enhance, Viewfinder Frame, Middle Earth Preset, Brooklyn, Desaturation, Lens Blur and Blur. Those are the edit effects that make this app great and worthy in my opinion.

Mark Ferrer (@markgoblue) who won the Combo Apps A1 Challenge got a promo code and please check out his FEED on Instagram. I’m hopping he will try and use this app in his future edits. Plus I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to the developers Stefan Sicher & Marc Ammann for giving me a chance and listening to me.
