‘infltr’ Photo App Gains Filtered Video Recording Feature and New Editing Tools
Award-winning photo editing app infltr received an update on Wednesday that adds a number of notable new features, including support for recording filtered videos.
The new video recording 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.

The new video mode also brings the ability to flip the recording between the front and rear camera using a simple double tap on the screen, so users recording a selfie video can switch to show their surroundings. With version 2.12, infltr also allows the iPhone’s torch mode to be turned on and off during recording.
With iOS 11 and the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Apple introduced five Portrait Lighting effects that make use of depth information. infltr’s latest update enhances its existing depth editing functions with a new solid color overlay tool, so users can change the background or foreground of depth photos in pre- or post-production editing modes. Unlike Apple’s Portrait Lighting effect, infltr’s approach works with the iPhone 7 Plus camera and on any devices that have saved depth photos.
Elsewhere, the update brings 25 new color blend modes, a new sharpen tool, an auto-straighten photo tool, and the ability to share photos taken in the app directly to Instagram.
infltr costs $1.99 and can be downloaded for iPad and iPhone (with Apple Watch support) from the App Store. [Direct Link]
