Apps

This page is all about the apps I have found or been introduced to. The purpose is to remind me of how each works and what it can do – if you find it helpful, that’s great too!

Light Trail Camera Pro (free)

Preview

If you have the preview screen showing you can see your light trails develop. If you are writing or trying to capture something planned this is essential. Tap the word ‘preview’ to get it or remove it.

Shutter speed – the larger the number the longer the shutter stays open (eg 15 seconds). If the shutter speed is set to B the shutter speed is controlled manually so you can decide yourself when it shuts. This is useful if you are photographing a preplanned light trail but you don’t know how long it will take. (eg writing your name).

When the photo has been taken if you touch the arrow to the right you are given the option of saving the photo to camera roll.

Freeze – half way between off and on

Contrast – button half way along.
