Dithr lets you relive the glory days of 1980s and ’90s computer graphics by snapping photos and videos using common pixel patterns and color palettes of that era.

Modern screens and printers can reproduce millions of colors, making for mostly smooth display of colorful images. But in the early PC days, only a few colors at a time could be rendered, creating the need for color-reduction techniques to get the best results out of limited technology. “Dithering” is an umbrella term for various methods of simulating intermediate colors by sprinkling dots of “pure” colors in different patterns.


• Select from a variety of dithering filters and color palettes
• Adjust the pixel resolution of your filter from extra-chunky to just-tolerable
• Capture filtered photos & videos with live camera view, using front or back camera
• Pinch-to-zoom, taking full advantage of multiple-lens cameras when available
• Apply filters to old photos from your library
