The Proof Is In The Images
Lenka delivers high quality images and you don't have to be an art collector to appreciate them.
Lenka encourages a more thoughtful and artistic approach to your photography and is an unrivaled front-end to any post-processing you wish to do in other apps.
With Lenka, you can choose from either a full-frame, rectangular-format or the increasingly popular square-format with a simple pinch gesture of the screen. The square format is ideal for Instagram users, but should you wish to crop a rectangular-format image to square-format, do not fear... You can do this from the editor within the app's "Lenka Gallery". Oh yeah, shooting with the front-facing camera with Lenka is not an option!
Lenka allows you to shoot in either Normal Mode or in High Contrast Mode. You can switch between contrast modes with a tap of the contrast button to the right of the large yellow "Take Photo" button. High Contrast Mode can be useful when you want to give an image a little extra punch, especially if the light is flat and even. Pro Tip: Careful not to overuse the High Contrast Mode unless you like blown-out highlights and crushed blacks.
Lenka focuses automatically but with a simple tap on the screen just where you want to focus, you can acheive a very fine degree of critical focus. Pro Tip: Lenka's tap-to-focus feature is considerably more sensitive than most other apps and the iPhone's own camera app, so please spend some time getting used to its "feel"!
Lenka's exposure is automatic and we like to think of it as "smart" because it doesn't take an average reading of your subject and "hope for the best", but rather, it responds cleverly to changes in light in a way that we think you'll appreciate too! The "Lamp button" in the upper left of your screen turns on and off a constant light source for fill light or in extremely low-light shooting situations. By deisgn, Lenka does not incorporate a flash!
From the Lenka Gallery, accessed within Lenka by clicking on the Gallery Button to the left of the "Take Photo" button, you have the option to perform the two most common editing functions, crop & rotate. Once you have performed your edit, you can save to both the Lenka Gallery and Camera Roll.
Select an image from the Lenka Gallery from within the app and you can either share by email, messenger, Twitter, or Facebook. Instagram users can enjoy our "Export to Instagram" button which allows you to easily open your Lenka images in Instagram, apply effects and/or share on the Instagram platform.
