Offering exclusive filters that are professionally designed just for this app, Retrica Pro is an iPhone and iPad app that will enable you to take high-resolution photographs and give them a vintage look and feel, turning your regular run-of-the-mill photography into something truly special and unique.
There are more than 80 filters available on this app, far more than what most Photo & Video apps out there offer. Let's find out how this app works.
There are two ways you can make Retrica Pro work for you. The first is to select already-existing photographs from your Camera Roll and then picking out one of the professionally designed, beautiful filters to apply to your image.
The other option is to use the in-app camera where you can apply filters prior to taking the picture and even get a live preview of what your subject might look like with each filter. One of 14 Retrica Logos will automatically be applied to your images, but if you prefer not to have them on, simply turn off the logo watermark in the settings menu.
Whether your aim is to goof around with some friends, or create a special and unique collage, you can do so using Retrica Pro. Set a self time and be in the picture. You can also enable the collage feature, which will automatically take consecutive pictures at your chosen time intervals and turn it into a collage.
There are 22 types of layouts you can use for this “Photo Booth” effect. I found this feature particularly lovely and would highly recommend trying it out.
Aside from the deep filters to enrich your photographs, you can also apply a number of other effects to your photographs through Retrica Pro. Whether you wish to add a vignette touch, or an out-of-focus blur to turn it into a unique and romantic greeting card, simply apply these features with a couple of taps, but be warned: you can only do these for imported photographs via in-app purchases.
You can also choose from the selection of borders available on Retrica Pro to apply to your image. This can be done both in the collage as well as on individual photographs.
Finally, it's worth noting that this app has complete social media integration, giving you the luxury of sharing your masterpieces with your loved ones through email, or with the world on Facebook or Instagram.
