MomentCam is a free photo editing app devoted to creating a caricature of pictures and to create your own emoticons. MomentCam allows you to take a close up of the face of a friend, family member or take a self-portrait, and then merge the resulting image with funny characters and situations. There are a wide variety of templates available that are regularly updated. Similarly, this tool offers several filters you can apply to cartoons, like pencil or post-it, amongst others.
It is devoted to creating a caricature of your pictures and to create your own emoticons
You can also share your MomentCam creations on social networks, including Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. However, MomentCam users criticize the fact that the app lacks a Preview function. That is, the ability to preview how the image you are going to select for the emoticon or caricature will look like before finally selecting it. This could be a way to save time especially when you think it's an appropriate photo for editing, only to discover later that it doesn't quite work.
How does it work?
Once you are done with the download and setup process of MomentCam, you will soon realize that creating your caricature is really easy. First you should decide whether you want a static or a moving image. If you want a static one, tap on “Comics” (labeled as “We can take group ‘photo’ now!”); if you want one with movement, then select “Emoticon” (with “Check back everyday for brand new emoticons!” slogan). Choose a photo from your gallery or take a new one at that moment. Three green circles will appear for you to arrange them in your eyes and mouth. There are four transformation modules on Comics menu: “Face Edit”, “Designs”, “Create” and “My”.
In “Face Edit” you can modify the orientation that your face will have in the image, change your face features, hairstyle, eyebrows, etc. “Designs” offers a great variety of backgrounds and situations, distributed into four main (replaceable) themes: Brothers, Family, Couple and Parenting. In “Create” you will be able to switch between styles, including Classic, Black and White, BallPoint, Blackboard, Sticker, Ink…etc. In “My” you can access your caricatures’ library.
Moving to the Emoticons menu, there you will find more than 100 different emoticons available, portraying really varied situations. Some of them are unlockable by sharing your cartoons with your friends. There you will be able to edit your look too. Both caricatures and emoticons can be visualized in Portfolio menu, located in the main home screen.
