LensFlare with Warm filter and Big Spots texture

LensFlare is one of my favorite photos apps that I go to often. For adding authentic looking lo-fi lens aberrations, it can’t be beat.

It was updated recently, along with its sibling apps LensLight and Alien Sky. I’ve got a few copies of LensFlare to give away today. keep reading to find out how you can win a copy. >>>

LensFlare is an essential app for adding real-looking lens flares, chroma rings and other lens effects, as well as simulated lens damage such as smudges, dust and scratches. Along with its sibling app LensLight, there just aren’t any better apps on iOS that let you create such unique and great looking lens and light effects so easily. Each effect is realistically rendered on your device based on where you place the light source. Very cool!

What used to be considered annoying artifacts on larger cameras is a look that I love when shooting the digital lo-fi of the iPhone. The iPhone’s optics can’t create most of these effects on its own. I can point my iPHone into the sun and get maybe three of these effects organically, but a lot has to be right with the scene to do so. Having LensFlare (and LensLight) in my camera bag let’s me quickly and easily add these great-looking lo-fi aberrations in post. And it gives me more control over the final image than by trying to create these organically by pointing my lens into a light source.

LensFlare is $0.99. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. It’s optimized for iPhone 5. Maximum resolution is high res on an iPhone 5, 4S and 4 — 2048×2048 px — that’s 3.1MP-4MP. Resolution is lower on older devices.
