The Cool Cam - Updated and Better Than Ever

The Cool Cam is a simple, straight-forward and easy to use photo app with some really nice filters to enhance your photos. The Cool Cam was created by Brazilian photographers Marcia Ramalho and Milton Montenegro and developed in Rio de Janeiro by Gaudium. With the newest version they've added editing tools to move, scale and rotate as well as controls to adjust brightness, contrast and saturation. 

The main feature of The Cool Cam are ten unique filters. Below I edited one of my recent photos by applying each of the ten filters.

I really like all the new filters. If I could make a suggestion, I personally do not think I'd use the TV filter much, so would like to see it replaced with something else in the next version. What do you think?

The Cool Cam is available FREE on The App Store.

  1. Nice edits, Geri! I just downloaded the app. And I agree with you about the TV filter. I can't think of an image that I would want to look like it's on an old TV screen.

  2. Hi Paul - Try running the image through the Onda a few times combined with one of the mirroring filters to get some really interesting effects!

  4. Hi David, It's really fun to run the image through several times. Note that when you apply the Onda filter you do reduce the resolution slightly because it stretches the image.

  5. Thanks Geri! Good to know! I'm not one to worry too much about resolutions...I have a couple of apps that will resize for me if it's needed!
