Create unbelievable NEW EFFECTS and SHARE them with others!

"After having played with the app for one full day, I’m nothing short of impressed. The sheer power of customization that aremaC (yes, it is Camera written in reverse) brings to photo editing presets, and that, too, to a mobile device, makes it worthy of being your instant favorite."
— Aatif Khan,

"Whether you like simple photography apps where you can add cool filters and effects with a tap, or whether you like to create your own with professional-level tools and share your presets with the community, there is something for everyone in aremaC."
— Karen Freeman,

"aremaC is an extremely comprehensive camera app, which pleases the fans of effects with a huge library of filters and the ability to create your own with a toolkit of exceptional power."

▷The presets
Create real-time effects by stacking and nesting effects with arbitrary masks together! Real-time means you can see the result BEFORE you take the photo. You can even shoot videos with them!

You can create absolutely NEW EFFECTS with aremaC and upload them to the online library to share them with all other users!

▷Advanced and endless possibilities
-professional, fully parameterized real-time effects
-take photos AND record videos with all effects!
-open online library, which everybody can freely extend!
-full-resolution processing (If you take a photo, it gets automatically rendered in full-resolution in the background and you can instantly continue shooting more photos without having to wait for the rendering to finish! As the high-quality rendering is happening on the CPU, but the real-time view is fully computed on the GPU, there's absolutely no performance drop while a photo is rendered in background!)
-full EXIF and GPS-data storage
-edit your photos (yes, this app is perhaps even the greatest photo-editor on the app-store!)

EXCLUSIVE: Another special feature - A BUTTON, which lowers the camera's exposure for FULLY AUTOMATIC OVER-EXPOSURE PREVENTION! This app is the only one on the app-store which has it!

▷As a preset developer
Upload your creations to the online library and see how popular they become!

A huge line-up of basic, elementary and partially NEW filters that pleases even the best versed photography/tech savvy:

-2D-Box (Blur)
-Black and White
-Chroma Key (EXCLUSIVE: Do high-quality real-time green-screen effects with this highly tweakable filter!)
-Color Splash
-Color to Y
-Invert (Negative)
-Mask only (Use any mask-composition, including custom photos, as image source!)
-Matrix (EXCLUSIVE: Fully controllable linear transform of RGB-colors)
-Random-Map (NEW: Random mapping of colors)
-RGB Key
-Solid Color
-Time Delay

There are also many fully interactive and parameterized mask-generators:

-Photo (Inject your own pictures into effects as masks or sources!)
-Preset Image (A lot of preset images are already included)
-Solid Color

Also all presets, effects, effect-groups and masks supports cut, copy and paste. The main goal, when designing these features, was: Let the user's creativity be the limit - not the app!

Still great, but needs updated!

I still love this app, but I'm also still having trouble trying to understand all of the different filters and what they can do, as well has what stacking order and masks can accomplish. I would really love to see some more tutorials, either created by Dominik or by some of the community members who know what they are doing (You all know who you are!). There isn't a whole lot more to improve on. I still stand by my previous reviews ideas for an update, as well as there needs to be an updated UI. Especially when editing a filter, the I and P buttons can be hard tap on my iPods Touch's screen. Keep making great apps though!

--Previous Review--

This app is great at creating your own filters, and it's actually the only one I have ever heard of. It has so many features, it is overwhelming!

There are a few problems that I suggest to the author:

1. Make a written or video tutorial for each of the controls separately, and place a button to click on for the help next to each filter for easy access.

2. Make folders to organize presets that have been downloaded and made for easier access, scrolling back and forth through a large library of effects is very annoying, so the folder ability would be very nice.

Great toy for artists

This app has been abandonware for almost a decade now, and yet here it is still working lol. The premise is simple; combine and fine tune different effects to create your own unique filters, then name and share them on the server for everyone to enjoy. Or use a filter someone else has made, either as is or after modifying it to meet your exact needs. A lot of fun and the chance to create truly unique photo art.

Wherever you are Dominick Seibold, come out of hiding...

Your camera app AREMAC is brilliant, powerful and infinitely creative! Please don’t abandon this app. The filters are multidimensional and configurable, offering more variety then practically any other imaging app in the iTunes App Store. I would pay a yearly subscription just to insure this app doesn’t go orphaned. Take it from me, I have over 700 Apps on my iPhone 8+ (more on my 6s, but many have gone orphaned), most of them dealing with photos and images. I don’t think there is anything I have that is as powerful as your app for creating images, and editing photos to create something always unique. Please give us a sign you are alive and well and will continue to upgrade this magical app! Thank you!
