Popkick - Colorful Camera app review: a fun new way to turn your photos into fresh vibrant artwork



If you’re looking for a new way to spruce up your photos without resorting to the same old filters and effects found in most photo editing apps, then Popkick should definitely provide a fresh spin on the genre!

As the developer has mentioned in the loading screen of this app, Popkick is a “Funky pop art camera with an excess of color.” I couldn’t have put it better myself!

While this isn’t really the kind of app that I can imagine myself getting much use out of, the social networkers and Instagram fiends amongst you are going to absolutely love it, so I would definitely recommend taking it for a spin to see what you think.

Create Cool Retro-Style Popkick Art

One thing I found particularly striking about Popkick - Colorful Camera when I first started using it was the example photo which is displayed by default when you start up the app.

It really serves to illustrate the kind of original effects you can produce with the tools contained within, and I’m particularly impressed by the way the developer has managed to actually bring something new to the table in an otherwise tired genre.

If you’re not sure what kind of photos will make good Popkick art then I would suggest checking out the Examples section of the app, which can be accessed by tapping the camera lens icon at the bottom of the interface.


Innovative New Photographic Filters and Effects

From here, you’ll be able to choose from a selection of high-resolution images and begin playing around with them to see what kind of results you can conjure up.

The effects themselves are actually pretty cool, with most of them based around manipulating the colors of the image to pretty dramatic extremes, creating massive shifts in the hue and saturation to give a kind of 1960's retro art feel to the finished product.
