Combo Apps/SKRWT – All Hail Symmetry

Today is about perspective and symmetry. The app is called SKRWT and it’s been one of the top photo apps in the App Store. This app is a tool to help you aline, straighten, change perspective and crop your photos. You also can even add vignettes and rotate your photo.

Demo - 1

The top photos are demos taken with Olloclip Fisheye Lens and taking out those black corners and straighten out the distortion (defish) the photos. I did take the photo with ProCamera 7.

Let’s load up SKRWT, you have two choices take a photo to load a photo. You can even follow SKRWT on Instagram @doyouskrwt and hash tag your photos #skrwt #doyouskrwt and #allhailsymmetry.

Back to the two options, I don’t take photos with the on board app unless the are camera specific like ProCamera 7, Hipstamatic, Hueless, MPro and a few others. The camera for SKRWT is connected to the iPhone on board camera app. So I’m going to load a photo and all the photos in the demo were taken with ProCamera 7.

These are some of the perspectives where you can re-aline or straitened your photos. You can play with the app and make some creative cropping perspective. You used the slider left to right to change the skew of you photo.

Here I’m taking out those black corners you get from using a mobile fisheye lens and taking out the barrel distortion from the fisheye (defish). After I’m done I can save, post it on Instagram or cancel the option.

Here is my before and after photo using SKRWT, pretty cool huh !!! The one thing I wanted to add is when you use these perspective tools to straighten or re-aline you loose resolution. The reason is you’re slicing off the photo and making the photo smaller. So remember that SKWRT is a handy tool to adjust the alinement of your photo and not a life save to fix a bad mess up. I will use an app like this because my photos seem to look off kilter. The only time I ever take super straight on photos is on a tripod. Some people are gifted in taking straight on photos but I’m not one of them. This is a great app to have handy when taking architecture and landscape photos when you don’t have a tripod with you. SKRWT is also one of the best photo apps of it’s kind I’ve played with so far. The developer seems to understand how important to have an app like this for mobile photographers. It’s a definite must have app to keep on your iPhone.

There’s a video tutorial on how to use SKRWT effectively. I want to thank Matthew and SKWRT Team for contacting me on Instagram, giving me a code, to try the app and write a review. If you have any questions leave a comment or contact me ashcroft54@gmail.com.

    Hi Tina.

    Great review. I have been using this app for a few weeks, and endorse your praise for it. it works well when I want to stop buildings from “laying over” and adding/removing other distortions.

      What I like most is the app doesn’t crash on me like Olloclip’s app. It’s stable and a very handy tool. I want to go Downtown and take new architecture photos and use SKRWT to correct me shots.
