Why we love it

Focos also allows you to incorporate a number of effects into your images. You can adjust the brightness of both foreground and background components of your Portrait-mode photograph, as well as create a custom grayscale depth of field effect. It's also possible to change the rotation and depth of the Portrait-mode picture. Once again, easy-to-use sliders await your command. You're able to customize just about every aspect of your masterpiece, tweaking it to capture just the look and feel you want. Other effects include rain, snow, and dust filters. For good measure, Focos also provides you with the ability to rotate and crop your photographs, providing you with aspect ratio templates you can use if you have a particular image size and format you want or need to use.
