We are not short of camera filter style apps on BlackBerry 10, even though the OS is still so young - and in fact with the native photo editing that is present many folk won't bother with third party apps at all. However, I found a right beauty the other day - Photo Space Effects. It's an Android port but seems to work wonderfully well on the BlackBerry Z10. In fact, the app has had over 400,000 downloads on Android so the developers must be doing something right.
Once you launch the app you have the option to either use the BlackBerry camera to take a shot or to jump into your photo gallery to select the image. When you have decided which photograph you wish to alter you can zoom in and out as well as move from side to side - so technically cropping. Then it's onto the fun part. There are three tabs at the base of the display. Effects is first and there are a great selection of filters - many of which I prefer to the likes of Instagram. Then you can choose a picture frame and there are some real beauties here. And then finally you can add text to the photo and position it where you want it. And that's it - just press done and your image is saved to your BlackBerry Photo gallery.
In addition, you can share the image you have sweetened up via Facebook and Gmail. There is also a Instagram tab but sadly we are still waiting for that to make its way to BlackBerry 10.
Photo Space Effects is free to download so go grab it. Go on, do it now! It's real nice.
