Review AfterFocus

Jay Feldman
9.0Excellent
Powerful functionality, nice interface, modern design
Needs to be elaborated, lags a bit
AfterFocus for Android makes old boring photos into works of artistic brilliance, all with just the touch of your finger.
AfterFocus is a very user friendly photo enhancement app. The basic idea behind it is to easily add perspective and depth of field to otherwise static photos. All of our gizmos take wonderful pictures, but the lack of true lens optics means that virtually everything is in focus at all times. Photographers understand that to make a photograph dynamic, it needs to have depth of field. Essentially, that means a photo has a clear focal point while the rest of the image works to accentuate the whole. Typically, the focal point is in focus, while the foreground and background are slightly diffused, or even outright blurry. Artistic effects like this are simply not possible with the one dimensional optics that virtually all modern gizmos use.
Enter AfterFocus. This app makes the prospect of adding some artistic value to your pictures a simple and easy process. Just outline which parts of your photo are the focal point, then highlight which parts are the foreground and background. The app does all the rest for you. The end result, is a sophisticated and artistic looking photo that you can save and share.
Check out the screenshots to see how I quickly created focus around the bridge while the rest of the photo looks more diffused. I also did a messy one around the President just so you can get a feel for how the effect works. Naturally, you can take a lot of time to get the details just right, but these examples will give you a quick idea of how the magic happens.
The app’s interface is clean and simple. I think it’s actually lacking a lot of extra features that most photo apps have, but I understand that the developers wanted to keep things focused on making the one task at hand simple and easy.
AfterFocus is an interesting app to have in your photo editing lineup, however, the functions here should be a part of a larger whole. As it is, this one simple filter and effect that has been developed into an app all its own. I think the effect would be better supported by a full fledged photo editor. As it is, it’s a little sparse and redundant to have a whole app that essentially just does one thing.
