Most of the people nowadays are running a picture editor application in their smartphones because is funny and we find a way to apply effects in real time, but what happens when you want to use the same application in your computer, either Mac or PC?
Let’s start this off talking about Retrica, this is a free application that lets you apply a lot of filters, vintages, borders and effect to your pictures with just one click and even before taking the picture itself. I have found it useful when it comes to user interface, save time and most of all that gives me the chance to apply the same filters to the pictures saved in my phone memory or SD card.
Now, you can find and download retrica for free for your Android or iOS device and you can install it with a simple steps as follows, but also remember we have a way to use Retrica for PC:
Go to your app store, Google Play or iTunes, and tap on the search engine. Now type in “Retrica” and hit search. Immediately the app will pop up and will be ready to be installed with no charges.
Now just tap on “Install” and let it run and finish. Once installed, as simple as that, you can run the application and starting having fun with your photos. Retrica has a lot of free features, but if you have an iOS device you can upgrade it to a pro version for 1.99$ in order to get more features.
Given that this application is officially available for mobile devices, we still can use it on our computer using a third party software, an emulator.
The perfect college maker can be ran on your computer. You just need an emulator that lets you install any application when you´re not on the phone. We recommend “Bluestacks” which you can get on the official website.
Once downloaded and installed, you just need to run it and there you will explore the apps in the same way you did it with your phone, that´s why this is a device emulator. Then just go the top right corner and find the search bar to type in “Retrica”.
Install and run the application as if you were in your smartphone so in that way you can edit and add filters and effects to the pictures you have in your computer. Now you can see how easy is to use Retrica.
