Pixlr-o-matic is cool app for Android from Autodesk, which converts your pictures to a retro-looking snap. You can play around with different shades, effects and frames for your photos and once you’re satisfied with the end result, save it back to your SD Card. You can also directly share your masterpiece to your faviorite social networks through the share option.
The publisher of the app states that there are there are 25,000 possible finishes for any image, given the different choices you can apply. The picture on the right is one I played around with using Pixlr-o-matic. That’s just with playing with the app for under a minute. Neat, wouldn’t you say?
Another feature of this app is you can either take a new photo using your camera, or just work on an existing one from your phone’s gallery. So you don’t really need a super-duper camera on your phone to work with this app. Just load a few photos on your SD-Card and get play around with Pixlr-o-Matic’s magic.
This is one app you should try out at least once, given the price point of the app, which is free. Get it from the Android Market using this link, or scan the QR code on the side using Google Goggles or any other QR code reader on your phone. This app requires at least Android 2.1 or above on your device to run.
