'infltr' Photo App Gains GIF Shooting Mode, New Editing Tools, and New Toolkit Manager

Award-winning photo editing app infltr received an update on Thursday that adds a number of notable features, including new editing tools and the ability to shoot animated GIFs.

The new GIF shooting mode appears beside the regular camera shutter button within the app, and joins infltr's existing support for capturing Live Photos, depth photos, and raw photos.


After selecting GIF shooting mode, users can select the speed and duration of the GIF, and also choose whether it should loop forever or ping-pong back and forth.

Over on the editing front, the developers have added new tools including fade, save highlights, save shadows, highlights tint, and exposure.

The new selections join infltr's more than 20 editing options, which include the ability to edit Live Photos and images with depth information. And on the same note, it's now possible to manage, order and hide them, thanks to the new toolkit ordering screen introduced in version 2.13.

Also fresh in this update is a new button in Camera mode that sits next to the undo option and lets users quickly reset all applied adjustments.

Additionally, the app now saves in HEIC format instead of JPEG, and uses the H.265 video codec instead of H.264 whenever possible, bringing a 50 percent reduction in file size without a concomitant reduction in quality.

infltr costs $1.99 and can be downloaded for iPad and iPhone (with Apple Watch support) from the App Store. [Direct Link]
