With the rise of smartphones and camera based mobile phones, photography has taken a new direction all together. Since photography through mobile phones is getting popular, many developers are coming out with applications that can give users professional like controls over the photographs.
Photography related applications are available across various app stores of most popular mobile platforms and offer a whole functionality to users.
So here we have got some of the best photography related applications that are available on the Google Play Store for Android operating system based smartphones.
Instagram is quite popular among users of iOS based devices for quite a while and now the app has recently been made available for Android with the same functionalities as its iOS version. The functioning of the Instagram application is very simple – all users need to do is click or select a picture and Instagram has a set of filters that a user can choose from and apply that filter to give the desired effect to the picture. Users can simply transform everyday moments into works of art which they would want to share with friends and family.
Users can share their photos in the ‘photo stream’ of Instagram which will also allow them to see and follow their friends’ photos with the click of a single button. Every day when users open up Instagram they will see new photos from their friends and creative people from around the world.
The application allows users to share pictures thorough their Instagram feed or can also share it amongst other friends through numerous social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter.
