Degradr


This is my new project, which will soon be available in the App Store. More information and updates here.

Have you ever seen a smart camera before? Meet the first one and let it degrade your pictures so they look..even more awesome!

Degradr (from eng “to degrade”) – a smart camera which «degrades» digital photos changing colours to make them look more harmonious and expressive.

The app doesn’t include any settings: there is only single option in Degradr — to click the shutter. Picture analysis and processing are being done automatically so you can see the result right away — no additonal processing needed.

We were creating Degradr guided by our broad personal experience  using the studies of Robert Hunt who was the head of Kodak scientific research laboratory for 34 years. Some magical spells and buzz words have been used as well. Some of them are:

  • compressed exposure
  • eccentricity coefficient
  • chromatic adaptation the cone responses
  • reverse saturation
  • squaring the circle of colors
  • cubical Lab color space compression
  • perceptual saturation theory
  • gamut in cut projection
  • finite impulse response
  • mask with convolution
  • Fourier transform

Plus alchemy, of course.

  1. Hi Pavel,

    Degradr looks really interesting! Can you save photos as TIFFs (like in proCamera and 645 Pro)?
