Go On And Take That Selfie: 3 Best Selfie Apps For Android
Think what you want about selfies and the people who take them, but mastering the art of a perfect self-picture is a handy skill. A quick and nice-looking social media profile, a CV pic or even a snapshot for a dating site – can all be done without involving, and thus – annoying those around you.
However, taking a decent self-picture is not as easy as it may seem. Choosing the right angle of your face, camera positioning, lighting and post-editing…A selfie may sound fun, but it does come with all the elements of professional photography – and those are not easy to master.
Luckily, there are helpful apps out there which can help you ease through the process. You may not come out looking like Mr. (or Mrs.) Smith, but it will make self-photo talking easier and bring you better results.
So here they are – a few simple apps to help you take better-looking selfies and be the cause of envy of the ones in your network.
YouCam Perfect – Selfie Cam
YouCam is probably one of the top popular selfie applications. It’s loaded with features and add-ons, that you can discover as you get more familiar with the application. One of the key features is that you can edit your photos right as you take them: there are six filters that you can apply even before taking the pic (from “natural” to “candy”) – with slight difference, the all have one thing in common – and that is “creating” the best kind of lighting for a beauty shot. After the picture has been taken, there is a multitude of editing tools at your service, like a wrinkle-remover or eliminating dark circles. If you are in for the heavy-edit, you will even be able to make your face thinner, your eyes bigger or remove objects in the background. Girls might appreciate one more extra feature – YouCam Make Up, which will allow you to add makeup to your pictures after they are taken.
CreamCam Selfie Smoother
While most selfie apps are all about the editing, CreamCam promises to take perfect selfies without going through too much manual work afterwards. The app focuses on giving you the perfect skin tone and ridding your skin of even the smallest imperfections. As we all know, getting that glowy skin complexion is definitely not a matter of a few hours – or even days – most probably, it’s a matter of a healthy diet and a few nice vacations. But where to get the time for all of that when you need a quick and impossibly fresh looking photo to attach to your CV?
That’s where CreamCam Selfies Smoother has you covered. Don’t worry if you have never been good with Photoshop, as all the editing is automatic and will only need a touch of a button – so that you can quickly even out your skin before snapping the pic.
With selfies having made quite a light-headed rep – adding depth to your photos is always worth a try.
As the name hints, this app will give your selfies a more artsy look and you will have lots of retro filters to choose from. You’ll be able to snap pictures form right within the application and go right ahead to editing colours and adding effects. In addition to 100 filters, Retrica boasts lots of extras, like collage (letting you compile several photos in a frame), timer (so that you have enough time to strike the right pose), blur (letting you place the objects in the picture in and out of focus) and others.
