For people who love to take photos of the food they eat, a new camera application for smartphones would be a perfect fit for them. It also carries an exciting and a very fitting name: Foodie.
Los Angeles Times said that this new application aims to transform food photos into snaps which are worthy to be shared on social media especially on Instagram. It also noted that this newest introduction, available for iOS and Android users, was made possible by Line, a Korean company working on mobile applications.
This smartphone application is designed with 24 filters which will fit any food photo you will take with your mobile camera. Its Apple Store page revealed that the Foodie app can also edit photos of food to make them more appealing to the eyes.
Users can also expect professional editing guides to help users easily tweak their pictures. There is also a "smart guide feature that helps you photograph food from directly above," as mentioned in the website.
iDigital Times also noted that the filters were named after certain food items like cake, meat and sushi. It also said that one of the most notable features of the game is its aerial shot which takes photos of food horizontally above the dish. Aside from these, Foodie also suggests to users the best angle they can use for their food shots.
In addition, the Los Angeles Times claimed that when it tested the application, it seemed to give a "golden glow" and a "washed-out" appearance to the photos. Application users can also adjust the settings of the photo and make use of the flashlight offering of the game.
"It's a snap to take trendy flat lays like you'd see in a gourmet magazine," read in a release of foodie as quoted by the Los Angeles Times. After taking photos and editing them through the app, users can instantly share these photos on social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
