[prMac.com] Edenbridge, United Kingdom - Independent developer Paul Gee today is pleased to announce version 1.0 of EyeStalk for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. EyeStalk is a Whovian's dream come true transforming any iOS device equipped with a camera into the EyeStalk of the Doctor's deadliest enemy. Using image processing EyeStalk can process any image and apply one of four styles, ranging from 1960's black and white to the latest Paradigm vision system. A live overlay gives a preview of the processed image to line up the perfect shot.
Simple on-screen controls allow full control of the camera's flash mode, the option to switch between rear and front cameras (where available), access to the iOS photo library to view photos taken or apply effects to previously taken photos using the iOS camera app. The ability to swipe left or right to change camera effect allows the user to quickly switch EyeStalk mode.

* Take photos direct from EyeStalk or choose pictures from photo library
