What is Ansel?

Gaming has become a new form of art. Famous game photographers such as Duncan Harris, James Pollock, and Joshua Taylor are popularizing game photography and inspiring gamers to take beautiful screenshots.

However, compared to real-world photography, in-game photography tools are limited. Instead of being able to compose your shot in any angle, you’re restricted to taking screenshots from your game camera. Also, your screenshots are limited to the game’s maximum resolution and color spectrum. Your in-game photography tools are limited too, and unlike a real camera, you can never capture “RAW” images for the highest resolution and fidelity.

Ansel was developed to give you the tools you need to easily take beautiful pictures as you would in real life. It pushes boundaries even further by enabling you to capture in 360 stereo.

Compose your shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share your screenshots in 360 degrees on your mobile phone, PC, or VR headset.
