Iphone 4 - Application (apps) for photo editing and camera
Sorry I was too sleepy last night and missed to update my blog. I was actually wanted to publish a simple entry about my favourite apps (applications) for iPhone especially for camera and photo editor. Currently there are not so many apps in my iphone yet as I am still testing out some of the apps and prefer to do it one in a time. I don’t quite like it if my iphone cluttered with useless apps. To those who knows any good apps, feel free to share in the comment section. It’s lot better if the apps is free. Hehe.
I love this apps, since it makes my photo editing work lot much easier. I used to use photoshop to do the color splash effect, but now I can just edit the photo straight away after I snap it by using my fingers! Color splash effect is an excellent way to accentuate certain part in your photo. Here is an example of photo that has been edited using color splash apps. It’s not a perfect choice of photo for example, but good enough to showcase capability of this apps. Color splash apps is not free tho, feel happy to pay USD1.99. Hehe.
I have been dreaming for all my life (bit exaggerate here) to make my picture to look like drawings in retro comics….like in those marvel comics. In photoshop there’s an option to apply the sketch effect, however the result doesn’t look cartoony enough to me and I can’t color it the way I want it to be colored (actually can, but bit troublesome).
So, ToonPaint is pretty superb and easy to use too. It will be much easier if you have slimmer fingers than mine. Mine are too fat for everything. Haha. Here an example of half way done cartoon picture of myself. I have yet to learn how I can save as draft and continue my coloring work later. At the moment, I need to finish up the coloring and save it. Can’t remember whether not this apps is free.
This apps allow you to edit your photos like a fake miniature with soft focus and vignetting effect. It’s not as good as DSLR aperture or bokeh effect tho but you can get an outcome close to photos taken by DSLR, providing you know how to play with the soft focus point and brush/feather size. very well Other than that, you can also adjust the hue saturation of the pictures so that I would looks like it being taken in the 80′s. Cool aight?
One drawback, I can’t seems to be able to upload pictures from library / from my camera roll to this camera apps and edit the existing picture. I need to snap the photo using this camera apps and later edit it there and then, meaning u got to remember to use this camera instead of the standard camera apps and also quickly edit the picture the way you want and save it. And also it won’t save your original photos, it will only keep the edited ones. Pretty bummer huh? Because, I always prefer to keep my original photos as well. So utk this apps, gambar yg you rasa tk penting and tk perlu simpan original version boleh la guna kot.
Updating my blog via blogo and at the back is inbox of my Usana email.
Similar result can be achieve by using Picasa software also. Here is an example of photo that I edit using Picasa.
Here how’s the original (pretty similar to original, couldn’t find the real original, I might have accidentally deleted it) photo looks like. Ada tong sampah, tiang letrik, kereta and gambar adalah senget sket. Ehe. And it was a bit dark too.
Currently my favourite! Why? Because it is super easy peasy to use. One rules to get the most out of this camera apps is to take a nice pretty shot. That’s all you need as the apps will do the rest for you. If gambar yg diambil mmg sedia tk berapa lawa, result pon ala-ala jer lah. This apps capable to give you different preview of the pictures for different effects, so u got to choose which effect you like the most and save it.
Here a sample of image with different effects. I always love Helga, Instant, Magazine, Cinema, 1974, Mono…o mannn seems liking it all! Haha. Camerabag is not a free apps. Need to pay USD1.99. But hey, it really worth the money. Good thing you can upload your picture anytime, apply the effects and it will also save the original version. Very cool.
So, I think am done for now. Hope that to those yang tanya-tanya I before this, which apps I use to edit my pictures berpuas hati , so far cuma ini sahajalah if later I bump into another good apps, will certainly share it here.
I’m yearning for Camera+ app, but it has been banned by Apple and only god knows when Camera+ will ever make it back on the market. But Camera+ used to be a top paid app, it was simply the best app ever created for photography purposes. Too bad I got my iPhone after it being banned. Hehe. My next hunt is watermarking apps and also photo layout template software like Photoscape
