There are many photography apps in the app market that let you add a variety of creative effects to your image captures and share them with the world. Levitagram is a brand new app for Windows Phone that takes image alterations to a whole new level. The app lets you remove specific objects from your photos and give them a floating effect.
Obviously that’s possible if you have a professional camera and Photoshop, but then not everyone has the advanced skills to put such an effect together. However, with Levitagram this is made possible with a few taps and swipes of your fingers.
You can create a levitation effect with Levitagram in three simple steps. When you capture an image, the app takes two images, one with the object and one without it. It then combines them into layers while giving you the freedom to erase or recreate the layers just by swiping your fingers. You can then create a photo that gives the appearance of objects floating, falling or hovering in the air. Pretty cool!
Editing in Levitagram involves adjusting the brush sizes and its coarseness. You also have options to adjust the brightness, contrast, and color of the area where the object was removed to make it blend in with the background.
There are certain basic things that you need to keep in mind when taking a great levitation photo. For instance, using a self timer gives more stability to the camera allowing you to take better shots. Similarly mounting your phone on a desk or tripod also helps. You’ll also have to take care about the lighting effects, whether indoors or outdoors. There are quite a few dos and dont’s that you need to remember, but don’t worry, the app provides you with a step by step guide to help you with the process.
Levitagram is a fun app that you’ll definitely enjoy playing with. It’s available on the Windows Phone Store for the price of free for a limited time, so be sure to grab it while you can.
