You've probably heard about Pokemon and 'prism' before, right? If not (which is already strange), then I want to remind you: there is such a cool application, Prisma, with its help you can take a photo and turn it into a kind of picture, reminiscent of the canvases of famous or not so famous artists. Cool idea, cool implementation, simplicity and usability of the application quickly made it famous and popular all over the world. One BUT, at first the 'prism' was available only for the platform iOS, and the owners of Android devices had to bite their nails or look for alternatives (as I did, for example).
How to live without 'Prism' on Android?
But this joyful moment has come – Prisma came to Android!
In general, it's strange to explain something, you just need to install the program and start using it, but I will explain briefly. The app is available on Google Play, takes up little space and installs very quickly. The interface resembles Instagram, the same window for shooting with an aspect ratio of 1: 1 and the same filters that are proposed to be applied to an already taken photo. Instead of taking a photo, you can select a picture from the gallery of your smartphone or any other place (cloud storage, etc.), crop it, rotate it as needed and then apply a filter.
There are a lot of filters in Prisma! I counted 29 pieces, almost all very individual and different from each other. There are a couple of advertising, this is when some company buys a branded filter for itself and names it after itself, the rest – for some style or artist.
Image processing takes from a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes, it all depends on the current workload of the 'prism' servers. The finished image can be saved to the gallery, posted to Facebook, Instagram or sent to other social networks, friends in the messenger, and so on.
By the way, the strength of any filter can be changed in the range from 0 to 100 percent, where 0 is the original photo and 100 is the fully transformed image. But no one bothers to choose intermediate options.
Nothing can be changed in the program settings, except for adding a 'watermark' to the photo. But, as it seems to me, now everyone already knows that if a converted photo is posted, this is the work of a 'prism'.
Now around the Pokémon and the 'prism' serious passions are boiling. Many people around the world consider it their duty to explain to everyone else why such mass hobbies are bad, harmful, and so on. As for the 'prism', they add different terms like 'bad taste' and some other things that will probably be remembered. What I want to say here – don't listen to anyone. Do you like catching Pokemon? Catch! Do you like pictures processed in a 'prism'? Process and spread for friends and good acquaintances, save for yourself!
Experiment with filters to better understand which ones are best for which scenes. In a word, use this cool service and do not listen to left-wing people who have nothing to do with you. And if you do not like the 'prism' and it seems stupid – feel free to use it, be different and enjoy your individuality! In short, just do what you personally think is right, and not the commentator / friend / subscriber 'Vasya' on 'Facebook' or 'in contact'. And all will be well.
