I love the idea of taking a good photographic image and manipulating it so it looks like it was a painting. It follows then, that I quite enjoy experimenting and finding a cool ios filter app that facilitates this.
I like seeing how technically gifted people have created software to ‘see’ as a watercolour artist sees, or as an impressionist sees. Creativity. You can see some of my experiments on my Flickr stream.
My latest exploration has been with Brushstroke — a rather fully-featured iOS filter app. The Blue Jay image above is a render created with Brushstroke — almost has an illustration quality about it.
Yeah, it’s pretty powerful — handling both watercolour style as well as oil — and things in-between such as acrylics and gouache.
Unfortunately it doesn’t really label them all accordingly (Oil, Washed, Hatched, Simple, etc) but then again, it’s kinda fun to explore.
Currently $2.99 in the app store — a fair price for a pretty capable app!

Taken in the dark. Had to try and light-paint with our iPhones and pocket lights. Appologies for the blurry.

I’m sure all of us have, at one point or another, dreamed of releasing that movie director deep inside, and making our own movie, complete with music and special effects.
Well, if your dream is to make one that hearkens back to the golden days of silent cinema, then I’ve got an inexpensive app for you.
Silent Film Director, released today, can help you make movies in a style reminensent of the classic Hollywood silver screen.
It’s a very slick app that lets you shoot, edit and share movies on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad (in Universal mode). Continue reading Unleash your inner Spielberg
