Disappointed with your camera handiwork when it comes to capturing the beauty of the dish before you? If so, never fear, a free smartphone photo app called 'Foodie' has arrived that will give your dish the glory it deserves.
With Instagram's #Foodporn boasting over 85 million food photos, competition is fierce out there, and it takes some special camera work to stand out from the crowd. This is where Foodie comes into play,equipping your smartphone with simple to use camera and photo editing features.
In fact Foodie has such an array of impressive coloured filters your food photos will instantly achieve that saturated colour, food magazine look. You can even go one step further and give the impression you were using an SLR camera by focusing on the foreground and blurring out the background.
If you're a fan of the aerial food shot the Foodie app also boasts a “best angle” feature that lets you know when you're at the right angle to click without excessive hovering above your plate.
Al fresco dining under the stars? No problem, the app even comes with a built in flash.
That just leaves you with two jobs, to upload and tuck in, as plate envy ripples across your social media platform.
