A Look At After Touch – A New Photo Editing App For The Sony Xperia S

The majority of modern smartphones boast some superb camera features and one of the leading devices in this area is the Sony Xperia S. This excellent new phone includes a 12 million pixel primary camera that can capture very high quality images. A range of applications are available for consumers that enable them to add effects to their images to give them a much more professional appearance. One of the newest apps available for the Xperia S is After Focus, a new piece of software which offers some brilliant features.

Unlike may photo editing applications currently available After Focus does not boast any social networking features that enable you to upload images directly to certain sites. This software is a stand alone photo editing tool and it is perfect for preparing your images before you upload them to other services. After Focus enables users of the Sony Xperia S to take a photograph from within the application or choose to edit another image that has already been captured with the phone. One of the most attractive features that this application offers is the ability to make certain areas of you image appear blurred which helps make the segment of the image that is in focus stand out even more. Users can opt to achieve this effect by simply circling the area that needs to remain focused on the screen. Alternatively the manual mode allows the blur to be applied at various levels on specified areas of the shot. This effect produces some fantastic results and it looks superb on the Xperia S thanks to the large display and excellent image quality that is on offer.

The After Touch application for the Sony Xperia S also offers a wealth of other features in addition to the focus modes that we have discussed. A wide array of filters are available that help give your image a very different look. The usual filters are all available including Sepia which takes most of the colour out of the shot to leave a photograph with an attractive vintage effect. Once you have created an image that you are happy with the photo can be saved to your photo collection on the handset. Users can then choose to share the image by using the Android Share feature on the phone which easily enables the shot to be uploaded to sites such as Picassa and Facebook or sent in an e mail. This process does take slightly longer than alternative apps that have share features incorporated but it is a small price to pay for achieving such excellent final results.

After Focus is a powerful photo editing tool for the Sony Xperia S. Despite the lack of social networking integration the software still impresses thanks to a range of excellent options that help users to achieve some wonderful images.
