Upgrade Front Facing Camera for Selfie-HDR
The front cameras on iPhone and iPad are always much lower resolution and quality than the rear camera. FrontHDR is a great app that allows you to enable HDR while using the front facing camera to improve your Selfie Photo.
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range imaging to make your pictures look better, is a method that aims to add more "dynamic range" to photographs, where dynamic range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. Instead of just taking one photo, HDR uses three photos, taken at different exposures. FrontHDR app to put those three images together and highlight the best parts of each photo. The result is something that should look more like what your eyes see, rather than what your camera sees.
When You Should Use HDR
As we said, HDR is designed to help you take better-looking photos, especially in certain situations. Here's where you should try using HDR:
Landscapes: Big landscape photos usually have a lot of contrast between the sky and land, which is difficult for your camera to deal with in just one photo. With HDR, you can capture the sky's detail without making the land look too dark, and vice versa.
Portraits in Sunlight: We all know that lighting is one of the most important aspects of a good photo, but too much lighting on someone's face—like harsh sunlight—can cause dark shadows, bright glare, and other unflattering characteristics. HDR can even that all out and make your subject look better.
Low-Light and Backlit Scenes: If your photo is looking a little too dark—which often happens if your scene has too much backlight—HDR can brighten up the foreground without washing out the well-lit portions of your photo.
