Shooting off-the cuff-images with your smartphone is all the rage, and there’s a good reason for that: It’s fun. These days it’s not uncommon to see kids as young as 7 or 8, accompanied by their snap-shooting parents, taking pictures on the street or in the park.
But often, when we circle back to look at those images, we’re disappointed that some parts are too dark or blurry, or that people’s faces look a lot rougher and less attractive than we know them to be.
image editor for the iPhone and iPad offers an easy fix to many common smartphone-based issues so you can enjoy and share your pictures immediately. Perfectly Clear lets you shoot via its built-in camera or import photos from your device’s camera roll. You can either go with the app’s automatic fix or sample the other presets—Fix Dark, Fix Tint, and Beautify. Each preset puts a different set of edits on your photo, and you can tweak any combination to achieve that just-right look.
Most of the time, Perfectly Clear presented dazzling results, like film being peeled off a dull surface, though other times improvements were minimal and too subtle. Given its ease of use and generally good track record, Perfectly Clear is an app you’ll want to keep on your phone.
