    Is It MS Paint?

    The best way I can describe Pro Paint Camera is to compare it to MS Paint. Basically the program is a very simple photo editor that allows users to add text, draw in simple colors with the pen option, and add various shapes, in that sense the program is just like MS Paint.

    However, the program also offers more options by adding various photo effects such as Mono, Sepia and Negative photo options among others. While also providing "White Balancing" so photos don't turn out with blue undertones and overtones.

    Overall Use

    Rating Average

    The first option that I enjoyed was the ability to white balance my photos before they were taken. The program allows for the standard "auto" white balance to be used which is fine for outdoor shots in most cases, while also providing different balances for incandescent and flourescent lighting so no overtones and undertones are shown.

    The program also provides several different types of "modification options" which includes the ability to add text, art, pen marks and various shapes. These are the same type of edits that you'll find in MS Paint and they can all be accessed from another touchscreen friendly display.

The fonts are bold and easy to see while the coloring is unmistakable with bright and distinct colors.

This is a great option for creating your own virtual birthday or get well soon cards among other options, it's also fully integrated with the Android emailing application which makes it very simple to use.
