Right from the get-go,¬†Amicus Dual Shot gets right to work. There’s no welcome screen, no tutorial, it just launches your camera viewfinder straight away, waiting for you to merge some photos.

To be honest, some instructions would probably be useful, but with just a minute playing around with this app, you’ll know what you need to do.

In order to make the most of Amicus Dual Shot, you need to think of each photo as being made up of two parts.

The first part is the background image. This can be a scene like a beach, a nightclub, a mountaintop, etc. The second part is where you’ll place someone’s face onto that photo.

There are a couple of ways you can construct this postcard-like photo, and that’s by either using the camera to take a photo there and then of the main scene, or by selecting one from your phone’s Photos hub.



Once you’ve selected the perfect scene, you can add a photo of somebody else from again searching through your Photos hub, or taking one from the camera. You could even take a photo of yourself and place it on top of the background, if you’d prefer.

You can choose the template of the foreground image to make it stand out a little. There’s the classic stamp-look, with serrated, perforated edges. Alternatively there are another four to choose from, polaroid, faded edge, heart and circle.

With a background and a photo of a face selected, you can save the image and also upload, or send it, for others to see.

Sharing options include: Tap + Send, Messaging, Email, Facebook, Twitter, OneNote, and many more.
