In the second part of the Selfie Bible, it’s time to hit the ground running as there is so much ground to cover.
Apps that do the trick
There are thousands of these that claim the perfect selfie features. Some that stand out are Selfie Studio, which uses the front screen as a flash and adds special effects and colours through smart use of the screen backlight. Frontback that takes a picture with the front and back camera simultaneously to give you the ultimate dual selfie.
Perfect 365, which is literally the first augmented-reality selfie app to hide skin imperfections, make you look thinner, add make-up and change your hairstyle or the colour of your eyes. In fact, it’s scary what all it can do. FaceSnap uses room scanning technology to tell you where to take the perfect selfie by analysing light conditions and recognising you and clicking the selfie handsfree.
CamMe which has a live photobooth feature, fun shots and a guide that hand-holds you on how to get Selfies that truly shine (it’ll tell you what to do with your hands and hold a posture). MomentCam which will transform your selfie into a surprisingly accurate cartoon character with extra add-ons.
Aviary, which can whiten your teeth, generate awesome memes but its forte is adding actors and celebrities into your selfies like you actually had your arms around them. I could go on – but then some of the best fun you can have is discovering the madness as well as the innovation that is creeping into selfie enhancement apps.
