Announcing Crazy Lens

Crazy Lens is the first application to be released by Liftoff Media. It is a photo transformation application for your Android powered mobile device. In the first version, you can apply any one of five crazy effects to an image that is on your device, and save the result.

Here are the available transforms in this first release:

Vortex – an effect similar to works by the artist MC Escher, and also referred to as the Droste effect, this effect rotates the image using 2 different radii from the center of the photo. The application settings start with defaults for the two values, but allow you to change them to something that works for you. Look for a future post with some popular values to use.

Pixellate – achieve a cool retro gaming 8 bit style photo by enlarging sections of your photo into larger “pixels” – This effect is customizable to give you a larger degree (or smaller degree) of pixellation.

Inverse – an effect that’s similar to a reverse negative.

Grayscale – convert any full color image to a classy grayscale look.

Mirror – creates an imaginary dividing line across the center of your image, and mirrors everything on to the opposite site. You can either choose to have that imaginary line cut horizontally across your image or vertically down the image.

Not pictured above is a UV Filter effect, which displays an untouched version of your image for comparison purposes.

More transformations are in development, look for them in a future update. The app is only 99 cents, download it now from the Android Market.
