Portrait Lens for Android Creates DSLR Focus Effect in Flat Photos

What’s the difference between a snap taken with a phone’s camera and a photograph made with a professional lens? It’s the DSLR focus effect when the important object is focused on and the background is blurred. It makes a photo look beautiful and natural. A new photo manipulation app called Portrait Lens lets you create the DSLR focus effect in photos that you have taken with the mobile phone’s camera.

Here’s how you can create the DSLR focus effect. To begin, take a snap or select a photo from the gallery. The next step is to create a mask by dragging your finger around the area you want to focus on and the background you want to blur out. No matter how complex the shapes of an object could be, the application recognizes the focus area and applies the effect. It also uses a soft finish to incorporate the blur into the photo without making it look sloppy. Once done, you can save the output photo in the desired resolution (up to 3 megapixels). If necessary, you can change settings such as sharpness/blurring and saturation separately for the background and subject.

Effects (separately for the background and foreground):
- brightness, hue, and saturation;
- sharpen and blur;
- reduce noise;
- pencil sketch.

Effects for the background:
- motion blur (value and angle).

Effects for the original image:
- auto levels;
- auto tone.

Installed it to try it.I started the quick tutorial that appears when you first run it. It doesn't get past this screen. None of the buttons work to advance the tutorial.

If I press back, I can use the application normally. But you might need to look at fixing the tutorial getting stuck. Unless that's all there is?

Works fine for me, including tutorial.

Tutorial and integration with the camera and gallery is actually quite well polished

I was just on Google+ discussing apps that create effects and whether they are good or bad for the photography industry.
That is another topic in itself but then I saw a post for this. I think this is a very promising app. Going to give it a test drive now.
