"Selfies on retro-colored steroids"

8.1
  • 80 filters to choose from (55 in free version)
  • See how your edited photo will look in real time
  • Collages made simple with self-timer
  • Watermark on final image

Apply a huge variety of filters to photos before you snap them

THE VERDICT

Retrica's gotten great at what it does over the past couple months. If you love selfies and you love filters, and you don't want to use fancypants editing tools to bring the aforementioned together, this is the best app on the market. Filters (plus blur and shadow effects) are all applied before you take the photo, so you can see exactly what it'll look like once you parade it around on your social media of choice. It's vintage filters made efficient, so you can spend less time on adjusting the Contrast bar and more time on Snapchat.

THE PROS

There are zillions of filters here. Zillions! Most of them you have to pay for, but you can preview 'em for free, and it's fun enough to dink around with the free collection until you decide you need to upgrade.

THE CONS

A minimal post-shoot photo editor would be grand. Otherwise, you have to go to a whole separate app to do so. The Retrica watermark on each image might bother some purists, too.


Original Review from Nov 27, 2014:

It can disappointing to take a photo only to realize afterwards that none of the filters really fit that whole look you were going for, you know, that vintage thing with the blur and the vignetting and the skewed colors. This is especially true if it's a selfie. Banish the amateur auto-photography blues forever with Retrica, which lets you play with filters before you ever take the shot.

Select from among 80 filters and see how they'll look on the image in real time. Toggle vignetting and/or selective blurring if you like. Create a collage with up to nine different shots of you and your friends making duckfaces. A self-timer makes it simple. After taking the perfect snap, exporting it via your social media of choice is straightforward.

The filters are by and large quite attractive, a definite step up from the default ones included in Instagram. It's neat to be able to see them applied before you ever take the shot; that way, you know if you need to find more light or reframe the photo in advance.

55 of the filters are included in the free version; upgrading to Pro will net you 25 extras.

Retrica is the selfie-enthusiast's dream come true.
