GLOBAL – The Nokia N8 packs a punch when it comes to taking amazing photos. That’ll be down to the Carl Zeiss, 12-megapixel camera that’s onboard. But sometimes, to get that extra-perfect shot, you’ll need some software. Today, we’re talking about HDR and the Nokia N8. Join us as we create our own HDR images, using HDR Photo Camera from Ovi Store.
If you’re even mildly into photography, then it’ll be worth spending the £4.00 for the HDR Photo Camera app from Ovi Store as it’s a great way of jazzing up a photo. Pros might prefer the manual process using Photoshop or similar (see below), but much of the same quality is available right on your phone using this app.
For those unfamiliar with HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging, HDR is a technique that allows you to take a series of images of the same subject, with each photo being subjected to slightly different exposure levels. These are then fused together to give a unique image with all the different range of colours viewable, in one photo.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed this app, your phone is set up to take some extra-amazing shots. Upon loading, your viewfinder will open to show you what your phone’s camera can currently see, along with some other icons in the UI.
