A big part of being social online involves taking and sharing lots of pictures! Unfortunately taking terrific pics doesn’t come naturally to me and I don’t have a ton of time to devote to learning to use more advanced photo editing programs. Taking nice shots on a smartphone involves a having a good eye, a great camera and simple to use editing apps. I was delighted to discover Nokia’s “Glam Me” app which promised to let me easily take, edit and share pics with my Verizon Nokia Lumia 928.
This photo of my cat, Resident Evil was taken with the main ( rear facing camera) and with the swipe of my finger I was able to apply the “Rain Drop” filter to her image. The picture quality of the Lumia 928 is impressive and I was pleased with the detail and somber mood of this shot.
I snapped my pic & within seconds Glam Me had my shot up and ready for special effect filter selection. You can change from front to rear camera with a tap on the center button. When using the rear camera you can set flash on/ off and set up a timer for group shots.
The “Sweet” filter really is just that! I love how soft and serene she looks here.
I don’t normally do “selfies” but wanted to test out the “Enhancement” features of the app. If you tap on the “smart light” button before taking your photo the camera will scan your face and adjust the light to help ensure a great pic. You can customize filters to enlarge your eyes, tone, soften and slim your face by manually adjusting each setting via a slider You can even whiten your teeth but be careful, if you swipe the slider all the way up your teeth will practically glow in the dark :) The app was fairly intuitive & easy to use but one feature I would love to see added is the ability to import pictures you’ve already taken for editing.
The Lumia 928 takes nice pictures and Nokia has really put a lot of work into making their camera/ photo apps easy to use. I took a ton of pictures and sat here laughing with my son over some of the special effects the Glam me app allowed me to produce. If the ability to quickly snap and share good looking photos is important to you, the Nokia 928 might just be the phone you need.
