AURYN, INC. DEBUTS STATE-OF-THE-ART PHOTO ENHANCING AND SHARING APP
AurynCam Transforms Ordinary Pictures into Extraordinary Works of Art, Right on the iPhone or iPad
November 13, 2012 – Los Angeles, Calif. - Auryn, Inc., the mobile apps developer founded by Academy award-winning visual effects experts from Hollywood’s top movie studios, today announces the release of AurynCam, a photo enhancing and sharing app, which transforms ordinary pictures into extraordinary works of art on your iPhone or iPad.
AurynCam opens up a new world of breath-taking mobile artistic expression by providing more visual effects and features than any other app in the market today. Utilizing state of the art technology, gorgeous changes to your images are implemented directly on your phone, right before your eyes. Now anyone can easily create art, wherever they are!
· 25 rendering effects to convert photos into works of art, including watercolor, pastel, colored pencil, stained glass, “blue-print”, etc.
· 24 other effects including color palettes and filters. Unlike other apps, you can layer multiple filters on to an image for unlimited combinations.
· 16 different options for frames.
· 7 pre-selected crop ratios, and in case a specific ratio or size is desired, there is also a manual/user-defined cropping option.
· 29 ways to blend two pictures to combine them in fun ways. A slider bar allows you to decide which image gets the most precedence by adjusting the percentage to take from picture 1 versus picture 2 to create your final blended masterpiece.
· Share your digital creations with friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr right from the app.
Available on the App Store today for free, and coming soon to Android. Download the iOS version today at http://www.bit.ly/AurynCam.
“We have always been the first developers to bring cutting edge artistic rendering technologies to the mobile world. We were the first to bring stylized 3D animation into children’s picture books with our Appy Award winning ‘Teddy’s’ series. We were the first—and still only—developers to bring realistic watercolor to painting apps with our much celebrated Auryn Ink. And, with AurynCam, we’ve now used this experience to considerably expand the expressiveness of photography apps. We all have a hidden artist within us; AurynCam helps us to release that creativity without the requirement of any specific skill set or training,” said Umesh Shukla CCO of Auryn, Inc.
