AppArt School – How to Get Started with the Hipstamatic App

One of the most art/photography popular apps, is Hispstamatic and today in our column, AppArt school, we list the steps to get started with it:

Hipstamatic is a camera app that allows you to apply various vintage and retro filters to your photos. Here’s how to use Hipstamatic:

  1. Download and install the app: You can find Hipstamatic in the App Store or Google Play Store. After installing the app, open it on your phone.
  2. Choose your lens, film, and flash: When you first open the app, you’ll see the viewfinder. To apply a filter to your photo, you need to select a combination of lens, film, and flash. Swipe left or right to browse through the options and tap on the one you want to use. You can also purchase additional lenses, films, and flashes if you want more options.
  3. Take a photo: Once you’ve selected your lens, film, and flash, you’re ready to take a photo. To do this, simply press the shutter button in the center of the screen.
  4. Edit your photo: After you’ve taken a photo, you can edit it by tapping on the thumbnail in the lower left corner of the screen. This will take you to the editing screen where you can adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation, and other settings of your photo. You can also crop or rotate your photo, add frames, and apply additional filters.
  5. Save or share your photo: When you’re happy with your photo, you can save it to your camera roll or share it on social media by tapping on the share icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
  6. Hipstamatic also has a Pro mode that allows you to manually adjust the exposure, focus, and other settings of your camera. To access Pro mode, swipe up on the viewfinder screen. From there, you can adjust the settings to your liking.

    I hope this helps you get started with using Hipstamatic!
