design + user experience
While certain aspect ratios are in use, the area of the photo being cropped off is blurred behind a semi-translucent gradient, creating a subtle but beautiful effect.
This is accomplished by applying a different filter to three separate images in real time.
After tapping the filter selection button, you can choose which image filter to apply and then adjust its intensity using the slider at the top.
Each image filter was custom designed and performance tuned just for Scout Camera.
Independent focus and exposure controls are available, to give the photographer more control over how the photo looks.
Details of a photo's EXIF data can be viewed, including a map showing where the photo was taken (if the geolocation feature was enabled while taking the photo).
In landscape, the filter selection tool doesn't extend to the edges of the screen like it does in portrait, to avoid covering up other controls.
It's also faded out along the left and right edges instead of being cut off abruptly, which would have looked bad.
