We think of Evernote Food as the one app you need to inspire and chronicle your life in food. With that in mind, we’ve continually updated the app to make it the only companion (well, apart from friends and family) you need to discover, collect, and share your life’s memorable food experiences.
Today, iOS users who love capturing beautiful food images have two powerful new tools to create artful, shareable photos using Evernote Food: a collection of image filters and a low-light camera setting designed for photographing food in dim lighting conditions.
Let’s look at how the new photo editing and capture tools work, and after that we’ll also touch on a few other cool enhancements we’ve debuted for iOS and Android users.
Image Filters: Take Beautiful Food Photos with Evernote Food
First, take a photo using the camera function in the My Meals section of the app. Tap on the image to which you want to apply a filter. You can select from a number of image filters we’ve just added to the app. We chose the Boost filter to amp up this image a bit. Bonus: you can apply filters to your images even after creating a meal note. Also, you can now rotate images from the same photo editing screen in My Meals.
Food Light: Take Great Food Photos in Dim Lighting
Another awesome feature for iOS users is tailored to people who want to capture their meals in low-light conditions without using flash, which reliably washes images out, makes them too bright, or leaves them grainy.
The app’s new food light was ingeniously designed to use an optimal beam of light for settings in which you might usually use flash, resulting in images that show your meals in the best possible light.
This feature couldn’t be easier to use. When you’re in My Meals and ready to snap a photo, touch the light bulb icon at the top of the screen. Tap it on/off to toggle between flash and no flash in order to see what your image will look like either way. Here’s a look at an image captured using the food light. An additional bonus is that you can apply an image filter within the same screen if you want to enhance the image further.
Other New Features for Android and iOS
We’re also excited to share some other updates to Evernote Food that are worth incorporating into your use of the app. Both of these new features are available to Android and iOS users who download the latest version of Evernote Food:
Seasonal Recipe Features
Evernote Food is a portal to a vast community of some of the best food blogs and sites out there. They’re the sites whose recipes we rely on for inspiration through the seasons. Now, we’re working with individual blogs and sites to showcase featured seasonal recipes we want to cook and think you might enjoy, too.
Updated Meal and Restaurant Note Design
Beautiful design is a big part of the Evernote Food experience. For this update, we gave the design of meal and restaurant notes a nice refresh. The changes are subtle, but they’ll make your food memories look better than ever.
