I knew when I got a smart phone that it wouldn’t take as good of pictures as my fancy camera.
I was ok with that.
I just wanted to be able to take some shots of the kids without having to lug the big dawg around.
Then my husband got a newer phone than me and the camera was much better, and I was green with envy.
Still, even his phone doesn’t compare to the beauty of Saying NO to Auto by shooting in manual. But I discovered the next best thing to have NO MORE dark pictures from the phone auto setting, and I’m so excited to share!
First of all, I try to take pictures in the best light possible, but some settings I just can’t control. I don’t even like the flash on my phone camera–it’s horrible! I met the cute Amanda from Kevin and Amanda in June, and after we got a picture together, I was lamenting how dark it was from my silly phone camera. She excitedly showed me the app on her phone that has changed my phone picture sharing life forever: Instaflash! It’s .99 cents–SO worth the investment!
Here is a before and after showing the simple slider at the bottom. It selects for you at first, then you can adjust.
I’ve looked at a lot of photo editing apps, and was never satisfied until this, and I use it with nearly every picture I share from my phone. It has a slider, and that’s it–simple!
Even pictures taken outside in beautiful light gets improvement. I hope this helps you, would love to hear about any other phone apps that you love!
