Meta: Apply Filters to Your Photos While You Are Taking Them [iOS]

Ads by Google

After getting a camera with enough megapixels and a good lens, all that remains is finding the right visual filters to enhance the look of your images. Normally third party applications offer such filters which can be used on your photos after they have been taken. However sometimes you feel that taking the picture from a different angle would have applied that particular effect better.

It would be really helpful if you could simply view what the picture would look like with the filter while you were taking it. In other words, you need an image filter application that provides you with real time effects. Meta offers precisely that.

Meta is a smartphone application for iOS devices. The app is sized at nearly 8 MB and is compatible with iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad devices that are running iOS version 5.0 or later. The app basically provides you with a real time image filter – your camera’s normal view is changed by the view of the filter. Before even taking the pictures you can see what your images will look like after the filter is applied.

The real time filters offered by the application are modifiable and can be edited while you take the picture. Including Woodblock Print, a Fisheye Lomo, a CRT TV, and a Light Leak Camera, you get twenty-three high quality image filters with which you can experiment and get beautiful pictures.

The filters offered by the app can be applied to photos already in your camera roll as well.

    Even though the “live preview” is already used by applications like Instagram, Photo Booth, etc. the filters in this one look interesting. I would be interested in seeing what kind of size and resolution would the pictures have and also how integrated it is to say Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

    I’d love to see what else this App has to offer.
