Most free camera apps available on the Google Play Store have professional features and effects, but they don’t allow users to cut specific parts of a photo and paste it on another picture. People cut paste photos for fun and to avoid humiliation in public. Following are the good examples for the same:
- You take a selfie in front of an expensive BMW, Rolls Royce, Mercedes, or Audi car and the car owner confronts you.
- You take a group photo in front of a large mansion and the watchmen yells at you for doing so.
- A person wants to take a selfie picture with his favorite sports star, actor, or actress but their bodyguards boot him in front of the public.
Instead of getting insulted in front of friends or other people, you can use one of the following applications to create realistic superimposed images (put a picture on another picture).
