It has a diverse range of features from basic automatic colour and contrast enhancement to cropping and sharpening. It also gives the option of selectively adjusting colour properties within a particular radius, and has varieties of filters and frames to choose from.

Pics Art Photo Studio and Collage

In addition, Pics Art has its own tiny social media network that lets you share your photos on the app and make it free to edit, so others can edit or tweak your photos into something new and different.

Camera+

This app offers the ability to manually control both the exposure and focus of your images, which gives you total control of elements like brightness. It also has a ‘stabilizer-like’ feature that helps you avoid blurry pictures, and a one-touch ‘clarity’ button that instantly improves the results of a photograph. Basically, it gives instant improvements to your everyday shot, however, it is an iOS only option for now.

Police ready to arrest Nnamdi Kanu, deploys extra personnel to Southeast

The Nigerian Police said it has increased the numerical strength of their personnel in the South-East and South-South zones of the country.

According to the police, this was in a bid to prevent a breach of the peace, which may result from the activities of Biafran agitators ahead of the upcoming Anambra State governorship election.

The police also said it was waiting for court pronouncement for the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Nigerian Government had last week demanded that the Federal High Court in Abuja revoke the bail granted to Kanu.

Speaking to Punch, the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said “We have made additional deployments, particularly in Anambra State, because of the upcoming governorship election and also to other South-East and South- South states to ensure that IPOB did not actualise its threat of stopping the election.

“So also, any pronouncement from the court would be strictly enforced, irrespective of the persons involved.

“Nobody is above the law, so any court pronouncement would be enforced by the police.
“We are strictly monitoring the situation for any eventuality from the court, since there is an ongoing judicial process.

“We are not leaving anything to chance; we are to ensure there is law and order and any pronouncement from the court would be strictly enforced.

“We are watching the situation closely. We have made enough deployments and we are going to act appropriately.

“We have yet to deploy helicopters because the situation is not ripe for it.”
