Snaps Filters with a Twist

June 24, 2012

Recently, Tiny Speck introduced the filters feature to snaps.  As a result, standard in-game photos can be turned into a virtual work of art with the mere touch of a button.  The filters, which can be acquired via upgrade cards, run the gamut from black and white to a dither effect and everything in between.

In the spirit of these new photo tweaks, I decided to highlight some of my favorites in a way that really shows off the filter effect.  All of the below examples were taken in-game using the filter features and then turned/stretched/framed to really make those effects pop.

1.) Shift Filter (The purple photo is the original.  I made the most of the red/blue offset by placing red and blues over the photo separately.  As you can see, it results in a clear picture each time):

2.) Chilliwack Filter (complete with Polaroid frame):

3.) Holga Filter (inspiration for the back cover of my Glitchen autobiography):

4.) Ancient Filter (of course this is a snap of one of my Glitchian ancestors outside her old homestead):

5.) Piggy/Beryl/Fire Fly Filters (these three filters tie for “Best Filters to Use when Making a Faux Warhol Picture”):

6.) Outline Filter (Good luck staying in the lines on this one!)

Suffice to say that, no matter which filter you choose, this addition to the snaps feature has the potential to add a lot of fun to photo taking.
