Before & after: CameraTAN multiple effects


The new version of CameraTAN was released recently. Version 3.0 actually has more improvements than listed in the official App Store description. A more detailed description of the updates, additions and bug fixes is on the MorokoshiMan website.

Our tweaked translation of the 3.0 update description is past the jump:

CameraTAN is a versatile toy camera effects app that now creates over 39 well-rendered and interesting results, even though the filters are oddly named. Multiple filter effects can easily be added to an image.

Here’s a tip — tapping “CameraTAN” at the top of the effect preview screen twice applies an additional instance of the filter. Repeat as needed.
