Want to make your photos unique from your competitors? You don't need to spend time and money on Photoshop like software to get Photoshop quality pictures. Over the last week we've been having fun with the phone application Prisma. This free app produces beautiful artistic renditions of photos and videos taken from your phone. They have over 30 styles and some of them are simply stunning. We don't have any stock in Prisma, we just think it's a really cool app!
The cool thing about Prisma is you can add just a touch of an effect if you want. Each filter has a slider that goes up to 100%. So you can take a photo and only apply 50% of the filter if 100% is changing the image too much for your liking. Check the gallery below to see an example of the stock photo along with the same filter at 25%, 50%, and 100%.
With all the filters and the slider available on each one it makes it really easy to get a bunch of unique photos up on your site in a hurry. It's not perfect though. One draw back is the photo has to be square. So if you're trying to use a photo from your library the app will force you to crop it into a square before making any changes. The filters also seem to work better if the photos were taken in good lighting. We tried messing around with some photos that were taken in sub par light with weird shadows and the app had a hard time deciding what parts of the photo to change properly. But for the price it really is a good tool
