App DescriptionDiscover, create and share beautiful filters. Shoot using real exposure compensation. Edit your photos in secondsâ€¦ Mattebox is anything but standard.
The days of paying for filters are over! Find a great filter and send it to your friends using Twitter, text or email. They can use it right on the web, no app required. Or create your ownâ€”it's easy!
The Mattebox camera interface features an exposure compensation dial, dual stage shutter and one-touch white balance. Just three simple yet powerful controls, arranged so they can be quickly adjusted with just your thumb. Because your camera shouldn't look like the console of a 747.
With the lightning-fast nondestructive editor in Mattebox, you can make adjustments to your photos in seconds. Intelligent features like highlight protection and adaptive black & white conversion mean you never have to sacrifice quality for speed. Use RGB Curves for incredible control, or add film-like grain, vignette and more.
When you save a photo from Mattebox, it remembers which photo is the original, and what filter was applied. So when you re-open a saved photo, you can keep editing right where you left off, even if it's in the Camera Roll or Photo Stream.
Mattebox features groundbreaking integration with AdobeÂ® PhotoshopÂ® and LightroomÂ®Â software. Save any filter as a Lightroom Develop Preset, so you can use it on the desktop. Or export a Master photo as a Photoshop documentâ€”with each filter reproduced as a group of Adjustment Layers.
