Cell phone cameras have become the new norm for most people and with good reason. They’re handy, small, and who wants to be carrying around an extra device when one will do? Photo editing apps are becoming more sophisticated with increased demand. Users want to be able to edit their photos while they’re still on their phones. Downloading and then editing just isn’t fast enough.
Lightricks, the maker of Facetune, has put out a new app called Enlight Photofox, an upgrade to the already existing app, Enlight. Enlight was a popular and powerful app in and of itself, but Photofox has added significant features that take photo editing to a new level.
The base version comes with a full set of editing tools but brings with it additional features inspired by Photoshop. Users now have the power to create layers for combining, blending, and merging photos in new ways. Adjusting image opacity, photo content, and altering individual layers can now be done through the app.
The layer feature alone brings editing features that can change the dynamics of how cell phone photos are used. Layers allow the transforming of shape, size, and perspective. They can be filled with colors or patterns, flipped horizontally or vertically, all from a small pocket-sized device. That’s a powerful app to prepare photos for sharing with family, friends, or on social media.
Not all the features on Photofox come free with the basic package. In-app purchases allow users to pick and choose which features they want. A paid monthly subscription gives access to all features for advanced users. It’s exciting to see the development of photography as technology advances.
