CameraAce Review: A Comprehensive Photo Application with everything from filters to slideshows

Posted on Feb 4 2013 - 5:37pm by Brian

The mobile phone camera. Once a novel feature that gave users the ability to capture grainy, low-res stills, it’s blossomed into a full-fledged prerequisite for a well rounded smartphone.

Nowadays we can record full HD videos from our smartphones, and Samsung phones in particular have been noted for their great shooters. Although there are plenty of photo apps out on the market, CameraAce is unique in that in addition to adding filters and effects, it also helps manage your photographs as you take them.

Typically when shoot photos with your camera, they all get crammed into your gallery, and do the nature of navigating your gallery, it takes quite some time to rearrange all these photos in to tidy folders. And it’s not like you need a full fledged management system to get things done–just a folder here and there for still life, or food. Well lucky for you, CameraAce does just that!

When using CameraAce, you can fire up your camera by selecting one of 3 categories–by default they are Family, Food, and Landscape. When you hit the camera icon from each respective category, any photos you snap will automatically be stored to that selection. Now instead of having to painstakingly organize post photo op, you can organize your shoots into collections as you go!

You can edit each collection’s name, photo storage location and background music for slideshow mode. You can add and edit folder locations for each of your collections. This is really handy if you already have pre-made folders on another device or on your computer. I took 3 folders of photos from my computer: Pets, Travel and Food Journal, and uploaded them to my CameraAce folder, and then renamed my collections and pointed them to their new folders. Now I can continue adding photos to each to each collection without having to manually organize them later:

The collections also carry over into the widget, allowing you to instantly fire up your camera from your phone’s home screen and snap a picture and save it to a collection. The widget is a bit on the large and it would be better looking if it occupied 1-2 cells and was scrollable, but in terms of functionality it is a solid extension to the app.

Once you have setup your collections and have started taking photos, you’ll notice that CameraAce also has a large library of effects, frames and editing tools. Here I took a picture of a Rubik’s cube, added a black and white filter, film strip photo frame, and then added an annotation with the paint brush tool:

There are 17 effects, and 5 different frames to choose from, as well as nifty “compare” feature that allows you to switch between the original/filtered image so you can decide which looks the best. The editing tools are well though out as well, with the ability to rotate by 90 degrees and flip vertically or horizontally. The “Draw” tool is very powerful–you can use a paintbrush, eraser, text tool and even add another image which can be resized and rotated itself. The UI is never too crowded either since you can navigate the image using pinch-to-zoom and 2 finger drag.

The next feature we have in CameraAce is the collage builder. You can select up to 6 photos to combine into one of the 22 collage frames. Each frame of the collage can be rotated moved around to find the best fit. You can also edit the collage just as you would a photo with all the effects, frames and drawing tools:

CameraAce’s final feature is its dynamic slideshow. Now that you’ve organized your photos into neat little collections, wouldn’t it be nice if you could play them as a slideshow with some tunes of your choice? Well the devs of CameraAce did just that. You can choose which song plays for each collection in the collection’s settings, and you can activate the slideshow mode by hitting the play icon.

Overall we really liked CameraAce for combining the management, filter, collage, slideshow and editing tools that are typically found separately in most apps. The app ran smoothly and was easy to navigate for how many different features it had. Our only complaint would be the sizing of the widget, but perhaps they will release a 2 x 1 widget in the future. There are plans to integrate default filters for each category as well, so stay tuned for updates on the app. We highly recommend this app for users looking for the be all and end all of photo apps, but don’t take our word for it:

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve
    done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast
    for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.

  24. I rarely comment, but after reading a few of the responses on CameraAce
    Review: A Comprehensive Photo Application with everything
    from filters to slideshows. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I’d like
    to keep up with you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I would like to
    find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be interesting to read through articles from other authors and
    practice a little something from their web sites.

    May I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely knows what
    they are discussing on the internet. You certainly
    realize how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
