When it comes to tweaking photographs that you have taken on your BlackBerry Z30 you'll be pleased to know that BlackBerry 10 has an edit option built into the OS. Photo apps are all the rage these days but as you will discover with your Z30, there are a ton of options if you fancy spicing up your photos.
Once you have the image open it's just a case of tapping the three grey dots at the bottom right of the picture. Select 'Edit' and the options will be revealed. Whether in landscape or portrait you'll be presented with four tabs at the base of the display.
The first of these is 'Transform' and this is where you can crop or rotate the image left or right - simple stuff. Tab number two is 'Enhance' and between the bottom tabs and the photo you'll have a new set of icons displayed. As only four can fit on the display you can swipe to the left to reveal a further four. These include Auto Enhance, Red Eye Reduction, Brightness, White Balance, Contrast, Sharpness, Saturation and Noise Reduction. Selecting most of the options will place a bar on the screen which you can slide back and fourth until you are happy with the results. You can then either press save or move onto one of the other editing options.
Tab number three is 'Artistic' and here you'll have a choice of eight filters (again, four initially displayed, but you can scroll to the left). These include Black and White, Lomo, Antique, Sepia, Whiteboard, Watercolour, Negative and Sketch. Just select the one you want and job done. You will also notice that above each filter are two arrows. These will disappear when you choose the filter that is below it. Tapping the filter once again will reverse the process and undo it, therefore allowing you to select another, or none.
Last but not least is the 'Styles' tab. Once again you'll have eight styles to choose from, many with a border. If you take a photograph of a person you can have some fun here as there is a style called 'Big Eyes' and it does just that as you can see below.
When you have finished editing your photo and select 'save' both the original image plus the edited one will be in your picture gallery. So as you can see - editing photos on the BlackBerry Z30 is not only simple, but it offers you some fun and beautiful options. Who needs a third party app with the BlackBerry Z30.
