Let’s accept the fact that sometimes we aren’t looking our best, sometimes we have that unwanted zit on our face or we are tired as hell and that shows on our face and under our eyes. Even if everything else is perfect, sometimes we just don’t get proper or good light! So how do we click better photos!
There are several photo editing apps available but to choose the best one that could do the job and still doesn’t make you look fake, is important. I may have a great news for you all in that case.
Meitu, one of the world’s leading photo retouch and virtual makeup app developers, announced the launch of BeautyPlusMe on Google Play in India. BeautyPlusMe allows consumers to create beautiful and natural looking photo and video selfies easily. With the use of this app, one can erase blemishes, smoothen skin, brighten eyes, whiten teeth, add filters and special effects, blur photos and so much more. A one stop shop for ‘makeup-in-your-pocket’, this app is definitely going to be every girl’s best friend. The app is already available for download for android users. The app includes 18 photo filters, multi-face recognition for group selfies, special effects for background edits and a popular one-touch auto-beautification feature.
Installed on more than 120 million mobile devices worldwide, BeautyPlus has become one of the world’s most popular FREE photo retouch apps. With the launch of its lighter version – BeautyPlusMe, Meitu anticipates to connect with a broader base of selfie takers in India, where limited phone memory and mobile connectivity often makes it challenging to download and install too many apps.
I have used BeautyPlus in the past and its amazing! I really loved it as it gives you the best natural looking photos and with the launch of the lighter version it can help many people take their best selfies or even edit pictures. Since the app is available only on android phones, I downloaded the app on my other phone which is android. Downloading took only a minute and on the first page gives you two options as shown in the picture below.
With the option Selfie you can click a selfie with the app’s camera and the resulting picture will be auto-retouched. It will improve the light, makes the skin look smoother and brighter. One major thing that I loved about this selfie option is that while making the photo look beautiful it doesn’t makes your eyes weirdly bigger. I hate that feature when I had tried other photo editing apps. It keeps the photo close to natural and you don’t look like a plastic doll.
The other option is Beautify, you can chose any existing picture in your phone and edit it using a variety of options depending on what you want to correct. There are several options like Auto, Smooth, Tone, Acne, Slim, etc which you can use and make the picture look better.
Now I am not a person who would heavily edit the picture but if someone wants to they can do that in this app. The features I mostly use are Smooth, Acne if there is a zit on my face, sometimes tone, when there is not enough light and crop. You can always use the slider bar to decrease or increase the amount of the effect you have chosen. See picture. I do however, feel that the options like brighten and enlarge were a little more unclear on how to use them, as I struggled even when I wanted to try those features out. Thankfully I don’t use those ones and I doubt I will ever have to, so I am okay with that.
Coming to the filters, it has some of the beautiful filters ever! I personally love the filter Sweet the most! There are others that I really like a lot. Again you can decrease or increase the intensity of the filter using the slider bar. You can make them look natural or edited, none of it is bad. Sometimes we do love certain filters on how they make the picture look better than original! 🙂
