Japan-based LINE Corporation has launched “Foodie”, a new camera app available for free on both iPhone and Android devices, dedicated to taking food photos.
The Foodie app follows the footsteps of LINE’s selfie dedicated camera app, B612, which has surpassed 100 million downloads worldwide to date. The food camera app offers an array of features with one goal in mind: making food shots look even more delicious.
Foodie has 24 types of food filters including “Meats”, “Sushi”, Cakes” and more. The app’s “best angle” feature also allows users to know through colour when the camera is positioned horizontally above the subject so you can snap away trendy flat lays like those seen in gourmet magazines.
The app also includes features like an auto blurring effect, as well as brightness adjustment and flashlight features. Foodie also offers the basic features expected of a camera app including sharing to social networks like Instagram and Twitter.
Foodie app Main Features:
1. Food filters make culinary photos more enticing
With a selection of 24 filters optimised for food photography, users can take exactly the type of food photos they want.
2. Best angle feature for stylish flat lays
Uses on-screen color to let the user know when the camera is positioned flat, directly above the food on the table, for easy flat lay photography.
3. Auto blurring feature for pro-style images
Automatically recognises food as the subject and defocuses the surrounding area that is not food, producing images like those photographed using a single lens reflex (SLR) camera.
4. Brightness adjust and flashlight features for shooting in dark locations
The user can manually make the image brighter or darker when taking pictures. Plus, the light can be turned on like a flashlight to enable shooting in dark environments.
5. Sharing through a variety of services
Processed photos can be shared not only through LINE but also on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
