With updates and rejuvenating interfaces for some designs. ProShot is just one of those in a long list but keep your eye out for this one (if you are a Windows Phone user) because you're receiving the boost when it comes to burst shots and generally a faster reaction time built within the camera.

Instagram, Snapchat and Vine has someone to worry about. And that is the cleverly named app Selphee. First you start off by taking a photo of anything you want and you get the choice to hold down that shutter button a little longer to form a vine.


How to use iPhoto's best filters and effects:

Adding an antique quality or even a newspaper feel to your photograph can be done by these textures. First off learning how to apply them will definitely help out.


iPhoto's filters are honestly a bit better than Instagram's photo filters. Some are heavy with saturation but others are subtle and perfect for that capture. Textures can give time and depth, while the Selphee may become a major competitor to three apps. Keep coming back at the end of each week.
