Here’s how to take those fake disposable camera pictures all the cool kids are posting on Instagram
There’s an app for that

If you've been wondering how to take the fake disposable camera pictures that have been flooding your feed, don't worry — you're not alone.
The not-so-secret is a photo editing app called Huji Cam, and it's honestly gotten me back into using filters. It's the perfect tool for the photo-edit renaissance, and it's free. What's better than that? Here's how it works.
What is Huji?
It's a free app, available for iPhone and Android (we love versatility!) and it makes your regular-ass pictures look like they were taken on a bonafide disposable.
Each picture gets assigned certain light leaks, seemingly at random, and you can also add a timestamp on your photo if that's what you're into — either from 1998 or today's date. You can also pay 99 cents for some extras, like importing photos, but I think it's cooler to take them in-app.
Is it easy to use?
Fuck yeah! Plus, it's fun. The interface looks like a disposable camera, but you actually get to see the photos after you take them because it's still your phone, so you don't end up developing a shitload of dark pictures of your shoes.
Can I pass it off as an actual film photo?
Maybe if your followers are dumb, but a picture taken with Huji is pretty easy to recognize — at least, it is when you know what you're looking for. Happy snapping!
