Timera: Combine New Images With Old Photographs


Wed, Jul 9th, 2014 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

PetaPixel brings to attention the Timera app, which allows you to create then and now photographs directly on your phone.

Through a massive user-generated database of historical images, appropriately geotagged to their location, Timera users can create unique then-and-now photos by overlaying the archive photo with a photo they just took.

Using the app is rather simple. First, you choose a photograph of a nearby location, which the app will then overlay onto your device’s display. After that, all you need to do is properly line up the subject matter in the image with the real world and snap away.
