The Paper Camera App

The Paper Camera is a App that allows you to take your digital photos and transform them into something magical using different types of filters. I love editing my pictures using this app and sometimes I take videos using the app as well.

There are 14 different filters to choose from. Comic Boom, Acquarello, Old Printer, Haystacks, Noen Cola, Contours, Bleaching, Pastel Perfect, Gotham Noir, Half Ton, Granny's Paper, Pen and Paper, and Andy Pop.

How I Made this Photo Using the App.

I simply imported the photos from Facebook onto my Kindle and then opened the paper camera app. I then scrolled through their options of effects and then after I found the one I wanted. I adjusted the settings of light and saturation until I got the look that I want and it was very simple to do.

You can see the difference from the original photo not just from the color, but the paper photo edited picture has more depth of lighting and is far more interesting to look at.

Tablets in general do not take great picture, this was taken on an old Kodak easy share camera, imported to facebook from a memory card, and uploaded to facebook. I then transferred the picture to my kindle and edited with the app.

This is one of my favorite filters, it's called bleaching.

Pastel Perfect

So this selfie was taken on my kindle, now I took this on my kindle as well, however I turned the kid.del upside down.  The developers know about this problem and in settings you turn on a button so it will look rightsideup no matter how you hold it.

Paper Camra App

Would you still use it, despite its issues?

Downside

The paper camera app all in all it was a very good application, but it does have its flaws, at least on kindle. When taking pictures or video with the application the resulting images are always upside down. When taking video with the application you can turn your kindle upside down so that the resulting images will be right side up. I don't use this application for taking photos because for some reason they come out darker than they appear before taking the photo.

Kindle has settings so the image will appear rightside up no matter how you hold it, but you have remember to film or take pictures with the kindle upside down. I am not sure if other devices film upside down. IPad may, I don't think Android does, but I am not 100 percent sure.

In the Apple store they added watermarks, commercials that are asking you to play for removing such things and for a paid app that is pretty underhanded. So when the updates come in, check the reviews some online stores wouldn't allow the paid add ons and others like Apple do.

Depending on the app version it is no longer upside down.

Here are the app features

I found this on YouTube, it goes through most of the features that this app offers.

The kindle has a few more features for editing the color and shading of your photos and videos.

recently they’ve fixed some of the upside down issues, but the newer kindles take terrible photo, so you might want to transport higher quality photos from your social media accounts.

I Look Like My Sisters Here

I like selfies taken with paper camera, I don't have to wear make-up to cute and given the right angle, you can look thinner too.

      Recently they have fixed the upside down issue, it’s better to transport higher quality photos from Facebook or Apple, since kindle 8 takes terrible pictures.
