The amazing social news site Reddit bills itself as the front page of the internet, and if you’ve ever spent any time there you’ll know why. There really is something for everyone, whether you’re into memes, music or minecraft or any of the thousands of other interests showcased and discussed.
These guys and gals really are some of the most clued up on the interwebs, so if they recommend something you know it’s worth a look. With this in mind, we’ve scoured their discussion threads for their recommended apps on a subject we all love, smartphone photography.
|Introducing the first Windows Phone 8 Lens specifically designed for the photography professional! Unleash the full potential of your phone's camera with the ProShot camera OS, and discover new creative possibilities with Auto, Program, Manual, and two Custom modes, with the ability to manually adjust|
With an app like ProShot, you can kiss your DSLR goodbye: this little beauty is a shutterbug’s delight. It gives you super control over all the settings you’ll need to take shots like a pro—white-balance, ISO, exposure compensation, flash, focus, grid-displays—and its custom mode lets you save your favourite setup for easy access.
|PhotoBeamer is a new, innovative and easy way to show your pictures on any screen. Just point your Nokia Lumia at any screen displaying www.photobeamer.com and you can enjoy your photos anywhere with family and friends. It's a mobile projector that's available anytime, anywhere.|
PhotoBeamer is one of the more space-age creations in our portfolio: a slideshow app that lets you display your photos on any web-enabled device. You load the PhotoBeamer website on the second device and it’ll display a QR code; then you scan that code with your phone and the two devices link up. Massively handy for sharing all those holiday pics with mum and dad!
|Photosynth for Windows Phone is the panorama app that makes it easy and fun to capture and share interactive panoramas of the places, people, and events that are important to you.|
This is the panorama app you’ve been waiting for. It pops up as a lens within your camera app; you tap the screen to select your first frame, move your phone up, down or around, and tap again to end. Then bingo, the app will stitch all the shots together into one seamless panorama. The best bit, though, for travel photographers, is you can geo-tag the results and upload them as interactive images to Bing maps.
|Fhotoroom is a pro camera, photo sharing network and professional mobile photo editor.|
Fhotoroom is an impressively comprehensive image editing package, just in case you haven’t quite nailed the shot with ProShot. It’s got all the usual tools you’d expect from a desktop programme, allowing you to adjust saturation, exposure, red-eye, light leakage and more. You can also frame and style your pics with various Instagram-like effects. A lot of bang for your buck with this one!
|With BLINK for Windows Phone 8, you'll never miss the best shot. BLINK captures a burst of images before you even press the shutter, and continues to capture pictures after you’ve taken your shot.|
This is pretty basic, very easy, and very sweet: Blink takes a lot of photos, really fast, so you don’t need to ever worry about missing that crucial shot. It even records frames before and after you hit the shutter release. Magic, right? Just select the best of the bunch afterwards. Perfect for those with wriggly toddlers…
