Prisma – The Latest Wacky Photo Editor!

It was really long ago that photo editing tools and filters had the power to make people go gaga about them. But, just when we thought this craze had died down – Prisma launched and people went berserk about the photo editing app all over again! And rightly so.

prisma-app-logoPrisma is not your regular editor. Unlike other filters or for that matter, filters found on apps like Instagram or Snapchat, Prisma has something different to offer. The app tries to transform your photos into art! Not just any art, but transforms them according to each famous artists’ style, right from Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso to Levitan!

First Steps to Using Prisma:

Prisma’s user interface is pretty simple – with only two sections that are most important. Any photo that you capture, appears on the upper part of the app’s interface whereas all the settings you need for editing the picture appear in the bottom section.

Like on any other camera app, the lightening icon represents the flash in Prisma as well. Although, this app keeps the flash off by default and in case you want to turn it on, all you need to do is tap the icon. Once you tap the icon, the letter ‘A’ appears on it, which indicates the flash is on automatic mode. If you don’t want to rely on the app to fire the flash, tap on the icon once again to make the automatic mode go away. Want to switch flash off? Tap the icon once more. There is another option to shift from rear camera to the front camera and back. It also has another ‘gear’ icon which includes more settings where you can decide how to save your artwork. In the same menu, Prisma provides users with an option to add or remove the ‘Prisma’ watermark from their photograph.

There are two more controls at the bottom of the page, one which lets you click a photograph and the other from where you can access all the photos from your gallery.

Turn Your Photographs into Art:

Once you click or choose a photo, the next screen you see is where Prisma’s unique features rest. It lets you view your image and has all the filters lined up at the bottom. All the filters have been inspired from the work styles of popular artists. All the filters are extremely different from one another, so you can try as many as you want to figure out which one suits the best. Although, adding a filter in Prisma takes a lot of time to render unlike in other apps, but it definitely worth the wait. Fortunately, the app lets you access a previously applied filter without having to wait so that you can easily compare all the previously applied filters. After you’re done with applying filters, the app lets you regulate the amount of filter applied and the original image. Once you’re happy with the result, you can either download it or share on Instagram and Facebook directly!

The app is available on iOS and Android phones. Have you used it yet? Let us know!

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
