Normalize Saves Pictures from Hipster Photo Treatments

iOS: Tired of your friends sending you falsely-colored and tinted photos via Instagram and long to see the world as it really looks? Normalize can help with one-click photo restoration.

Normalize does exactly what it sounded like it would: it normalizes the levels of colors in photos so that the washed out tones, the over-saturation, and the other hallmarks of photo-alterations Instagram (and the like) heap on photos can be washed away. It can’t replace area removed by fake vignettes and it doesn’t restore every single photo to it’s original in-camera glory, but the success ratio is surprisingly high.

Normalize is iOS only, $0.99 in the App Store.

    BRILLIANT. Seriously, I can’t even begin to say how irritating I find all that Instagram filtered stuff.
