vignette for android

August 22, 2013

had an android phone for 4 years or so and it occurred to me that i’d never written a post about vignette for android. the best camera app i’ve ever used. it’s small in size but packed with features. every effect (and there are a lot of them) is fully customisable. contrast, saturation, vignette amount, frame… it’s rather overwhelming at first but you get the hang of it. so to give you a taste of what it does here are some samples…all from the same photo of two red telephone boxes…they still smell like they should…pishy…
first, the original…classic lines. full of litter.

vignette_originalfirst up is the ‘toy camera’ filter. there’s also a version of this that simulates more light leaks but we’ll stick with the basic one for now

vignette_toy_camera_leakyquite nice eh? next we have the filter that i use most often. the ‘toy camera bw’. oodles of vignette and stark contrast…doesn’t suit this scene very well i fear

vignette_toy_camera_bwfollowing right along is a bit of cross processing. pretty much as you would expect…

vignette_toy_camera_xpronow we head on over to the ‘vintage’ section and we start with the sx-70 look which can be rather effective i think…

vignette_vintage_sx70and onto the ektachrome thingy…

vignette_vintage_ektachromenow for something from the ‘colour highlight’ category. it mutes some colours and boosts others…this one’s called ‘london’ (no, dreich, ‘glasgow’ alas)…

vignette_colour_highlight_londonthere are also some lens effects. soft focus, tilt shift etc. this is a tobacco grad filter in portrait mode…

vignette_lens_tobacco_gradand as i said earlier there are also a very wide range of frames available. square ones, wide ones, filmy ones. this is a redscale filter with a film frame. have seen worse…

vignette_redscale_filmso there we have it. a very quick look at vignette and what it can do. it’s only 70p or something similar. can’t get much for that these days. the developers respond to suggestions and fix bugs quickly. it’s my favourite piece of phone software. ever.
