    From what I can tell from images I've seen on FB, it is every cheesy photoshop filter from the past decade made available on an iPhone.

    Pretty soon they'll be used by 'wedding photographers'.

    Great, thanks. I bypassed the 9 box button, went straight to the little +.
    Much easier to learn an app after sleeping. Only had a few hours in the last few days.

    The Camera Awesome app was loaded to my iPhone and I took a couple pics with it and thought it's no big deal the pics are the same as those coming from my other camera app. I decided to play with it a bit and things got worse. Grumble, complain, whine..... I thought about deleting it from my phone but didn't. I saw some Awesome Camera pics posted in one of the pic threads and they looked so much better than I was getting so it was clear it was operator error. :doh

    While I enjoy taking pictures I'm no photographer but I have fun doing the point and shoot thing which provides snapshots rather than photos. This picture was all kinds of wrong and I decided to see what I could do with it.

    The thing I disliked the most was the sky. The day was gray and so was sky. This took care of the gray sky and I threw on a frame just for fun.

    Hmmmmmmm things were getting better but there was too much road and I really didn't like that blue green color :arg. A crop here, a filter there and things are much more pleasing. :D
    It's certainly no masterpiece but it's a heck a lot better than what I started with.

    Having the one buy button for the rest of the filters would be nice.

    Thanks Baldy for the app. I'll have fun using it and I'm sure my friends will enjoy it too when I send them pics from different places while I'm there rather than waiting until I get home to do the editing.

    P.S. I like the little saying while the photo is processing - panda farts indeed. :lol3

    Did a pretty big update today including pinch to zoom and Instagram integration.

    Installed but still crashes on my 3GS. So I still don't know what the fuss is about. :(

    yeah...I've got to figure out the zoom thing without tapping the focus and exposure spots.

    If you look close at this pic here, you can see the officer doing a face palm at my technical ineptitude. When he rolled up I was so engrossed in trying to post a phototag to ADV from my iphone using Camera Awesome and Picassa that he had to whoop the siren to get my attention.

    Anyhow, I never did get the photo posted from my phone. Ended up using my home pc. So it would be much appreciated if someone could school me on the posting process. Also, is there a forum or thread for Camera Awesome knowledge?

    While I can appreciate everything this app can do...I still find myself using the no longer available in the app store Smugshot most of the time. It is much simpler to operate and upload my photos.

    Suggestion...bring Smugshot back just for those who want to open the app, take a picture, and have it upload automatically. Make the only user setting one to control picture size so that those worried about their data usage can use less with a smaller picture. :thumb

    OK, I have been searching around ADV trying to find the solution - how do you grab IMG code using the awesome camera app? I am not seeing any img code anywhere using that.

    This isn't looking very good for live photo posting for tag games.
