Waterlogue is a very cool iPad / iPhone app that basically a watercolour filter for your images. And it works very very nicely!
I crawled through my image archive and grabbed a few good shots, and some OK shots, and I really like the way they turned out.
As well, I thought I’d just try taking a picture of the floor, and even it looked better.
I can see that I’ll be using Waterlogue more often in my images… not so much as a final filter but rather as one element I can apply as I fine-tune the shot. Another tool in the digital camera bag.
Earlier today the folks behind one of my favourite iOS digital darkroom apps (FX Photo Studio) announced a great new collaborative photography app and project, in the form of a contest:
As a gesture of appreciation to its loyal fans, MacPhun is also developing the first ever jointly collaborated, free standalone wallpaper app that will showcase user-submitted photographs edited with FX Photo Studio and other photography iOS apps. With MacPhun’s support, the app will provide the ideal platform for aspiring artists and photographers to gain increased exposure for their work. To kick off the submission process, MacPhun will be holding a two month promotion on their Facebook page. Prizes include iTunes gift cards, photo printing gift vouchers and much more. For more information on this contest, please visit: http://www.macphun.com/photoproject/
MacPhun has collaborated with established artists from North America and Europe to create a new “sketches” category. The newly added category consists of six cartoon-styled filters providing users with a total of 187 filters to mix, match and share with friends. The addition of more precise tuning controls for contrasting, adjusting hues and sharpening filters, provide even more unequivocal tools to users, making one of the most useful image editing apps on the market, even better.
With Filterstorm 2, universal for iPad and iPhone, you can “make” just about any photo your imagination conceives. It’s so good, in fact, that it may — for everyone but a true professional — obviate the need for desktop editing suites.
