Facebook allows smartphone photos to be uploaded directly with its app. Photo site Flickr also has its own app. Programmes like Color Splash (0.79 euros for the iPhone) or ColorUp (0.76 euros for Android) let users turn certain objects in a picture coloured while leaving everything else in black and white.
Other apps focus on panorama pictures, stop-motion animation or time-lapse videos. On platforms like Flickr, people can search exclusively for mobile pictures.
