Google has launched a new app the Google Camera that adds professional creative touch to photos. The Camera app also comes with the Lens Blur feature that will give the photo more SLR type effects. This apps works on devices running on Android 4.4.

The smartphone cameras are getting more and more sophisticated. The manufacturers either make use of the hardware or the software to get the desired results. The Google Camera app lens blur works somewhat similar to the Nokia Lumia 920 Refocus feature and the Samsung Galaxy S5’s selective focus feature.

With Lens Blur users can blur certain portion of the image to give a shallow depth and add more highlight on a particular subject. You can easily get this kind of effect using a digital SLR. And now you an do the same on photos shot using your smartphone.
