[prMac.com] Minneapolis, Minnesota - MobileChamps today is pleased to introduce Christmas Camera+ 1.0 for iOS/Android, their Photo & Video app that offers 20 different Christmas themed, decorative frames for photos shot on any camera-equipped iOS/Android mobile device. Photographers can see the subject inside the frame as they shoot, or they can put a frame on any photo in their Photo Library. Offering four types of frames: Holly & Wreaths, Rainbow of Lights, Santa & Presents, and Christmas Tree & Ornaments, the app produces memorable Holiday photos instantly that may be saved or shared via email, Facebook, or Twitter. MobileChamps is well known for its 50+ iOS/Android apps, and Christmas Camera+ employs their latest technologies to achieve professional results easily.
On launch in portrait orientation the app displays four different rectangular frames, also in portrait orientation. The back facing camera is activated by default, and amazingly, all four frames contain the exact same camera view. Aimed and centered on a subject, the photographer can compare all four photos to select the best one, or they may shoot all four simultaneously, creating a kind of photographic tetraptych. There are five different pages of frames available, accessed by swiping right to left, and picture takers can sample all of them, scrolling the frames horizontally while viewing their subject in the camera viewer. Having decided on a single frame, the user just touches it, and the frame fills the screen, while the camera shutter button is ready in the bottom tab bar.
The results are remarkably good. There are no fuzzy borders where the frame and photo meet, and the colors are bright and true. Particularly impressive are the delicate wisps of greenery and ornaments that remain razor sharp as they gracefully frame the subject. Also visually arresting are the four frames in the Rainbow of Lights collection. Colored Christmas tree lights surround the outside perimeter of the photo, and the subtle colors of the string of lights are visible on the face of the subject. Included within several of the 20 different frames are built-in photo effects, such as: black and white, sepia, mirror images, etc.
Self-portraits are also easy, just by selecting the back facing camera. Once snapped, a photo can be saved to the Camera Roll, emailed, or posted to Twitter or Facebook via the app's integrated email and social media connectivity. A holiday frame changes an ordinary photo into a Christmas keepsake, and Christmas Camera+ provides a lot of colorful choices and great results.
