The latest version 1.7 adds several new features that have launched the app into the stratosphere of iOS photo apps. It includes:
1) Built in portrait mode: Blurs the background in Real time.
2) Depth Visualizations: Lets you visualise portrait mode portraits before committing to the change.
3) AR Review: Augumented reality let’s you create 3D video and still images for AR users.
Halide uses both tap and gesture based controls to quickly and easily change exposures and manual focus. The app defaults to an intelligent automatic mode, just like the stock iOS camera app. You can tweak values like ISO, white balance and shutter speed.
