Color Focus

Combines the greyscale and colorful part of the photo.
For example, people in color and background in greyscale ( like the movie "PleasantVille (1988)" ) .

Difference Effect

Use the color difference between the photo and the chosen color to generate the result.

Inv. Difference Effect

Similar to Difference Effect, but the result is reverted. This effect is shiny like Guppy fish.

Coloration Effect

This effect can be used to generate various visual effects, for example, hair/glasses coloring, or simple make-up.

Vibration Effect

Similar to motion blur. No more "still" !

Copy Machine Effect

Looks like a black and white copy of the photo. If it combines the color parts of the photo, it will look like water paint or cartoon effect.

Sketch Effect

Looks like a pencil sketch. The sketch can be colorful if the photo is loaded in color. The sketch can also be black and white if the photo is loaded in greyscale. And, you can sketch to any parts of the photo ! Of course you can also sketch the entire photo by using the provided "invert" function (one touch).

Vivid Effect

Saturate the color of the photo to make it more " Vivid ". Just use the finger to saturate any area of the photo as you wish, or use the provided "invert" function to saturate the entire photo.

Peeling Paint Effect

To make the photo peel off.
