If you’re looking to take professional-like pictures on your Android phone, look no further. Vignette offers seemingly endless capabilities.

Vignette opens to the picture look-finder view, with additional options directly on the screen. On the left of the screen, you can adjust the area you’d like to be cropped for the picture. On the right, you can set effects, borders, megapixel #, light adjustments, and the self-timer. What all of this means is that you can create the type of photo you’re going for before you take it. No need for post-editing here (although you most definitely can)! Also, the app will make use of your camera’s flash (if available) and can geotag all of your photos.

  1. This is really an awsome app. But I actually haver som more suggestions for improvments.

    My suggestion it that once you have your preview of the pic you should be able to swipe across the screen to kind of browse through the different effects, and perhaps also the different frames.
    Perhaps a vertical swipe for frames and a horisontal swipe for effects.

    Or at least to have buttons for “next/prev effect” and “next/prev frame”.

    • @Richard That is a really great suggestion! I would definitely find it useful to quickly browse through different effects without having to go through different menus.
