What’s 'Obscura for? Censor your photos, hide sensitive data or just add some suggestion and turn any innocent photo into something funny.
How does 'Obscura work? Take a photo with your iPhone or select one from your photo library, choose a filter to censor your photo and share it to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr.

add one or more effects to censor your photos:
* add a black rectangle
* add stars
* add a mosaic
Belgian born lingerie brand La fille d’O is all about skin. The best way to talk about skin is to show it, but that is not alway easy. The boundaries of today’s chastity have never been so obscure. Therefore one is swiftly caught in the web of censorship, dictated by online community’s police. La fille d’O was tired of following those skinless rules. So Belgian based advertising agency Famous created 'Obscura, macGyver’s paperclip to share your love for the beauty of skin. Go! Create your own doors of perception.
Ratings and Reviews
Pinch and drag controls size and placement of blackout, and a twist rotates it, which is nice. However, you do not seem to be able to adjust the aspect ratio, which is very restrictive. It's also hard to control at a small size (having the ability to zoom in would be nice). The mosaic effect can be dragged around to locate, but is only circular and is hard to control when small. The ability to select the individual layers is very nice, but the other limitations negate the utility.
Needs ability to save
Great control, with rotate, scale and different censor types, as well as the ability to add more than 1 censor on a photo. Upload to Twitter and Facebook a plus.
However, not being able to save back to your iOS Library cripples the usability of this app. Having a 'Save' feature is more important than an upload to FB or Twitter, as the latter have apps that feature that already.
Good, but can still use some tweaks.
It's the best censor app I've tried so far and I'm really pleased. It does what I need it to and it's fairly easy to use. It would be nice if there were a zoom function to be more precise with the placements and if the mosaic blur were square instead of round. With minor improvements it'll be perfect.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
