1.1 Introduction

If you go to Google Play and search for the keyboard camera, you're gonna find dozens of camera apps. Each of them allow users to either take photos in a novel manner, or do something unique with the photos. Have you ever wondered what goes into creating this type of apps, how much effort is required, or what APIs are involved? Well, this course should answer all those questions for you. I'm Ashraff Hathibelagal, and today we're gonna be creating a simple Android app that will not only allow users to take photos, but also apply various Instagram-like filters them. We'll be using the new and very powerful camera2 API, because the older API is now deprecated. Over the next 45 minutes or so, you're going to learn how to create a live camera preview, take a photo, apply various filters to it using a library called Android GPUImage, and finally save the modified photo. So when you're ready, just open the next lesson.
