Unleash your inner Spielberg

spheader.jpg

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

Your ‘fridge as an art gallery

sg4.jpgSo you’ve been play­ing around in your dig­i­tal dark­room on your cam­era-equipped iDe­vice or Android or Windows7 Mobile, or Palm Pre, and you’re want­i­ng to get your images out of the dig­i­tal dun­geon and into the Real World™.

What’s a body to do?
Well, soon you’ll be able to trans­form those images or the ones you’re real­ly, REALLY proud of any­way, into the hall­mark of hon­oured hubris, the mighty Fridge Mag­net, cour­tesy of the fine folk at Stick­y­Gram.

Cur­rent­ly the site is in closed beta, but if these few images (and the one on their tum­blr blog are any indi­ca­tion, soon fridges around the world will be adorned with cus­tom print­ed pho­to mag­nets of ‘grammed images.

Now they’re also run­ning an inter­est­ing closed beta — fol­low them, tweet about them, and get your friends to use a cus­tom link, and you’ll be bumped clos­er to the head of the queue of beta invites.

Cool look­ing con­cept that could, I say could, help you man­age the gener­ic sets of mag­nets we all seem to acquire on our fridges. I’ll be watch­ing for this, as my fridge, needs more ‘fine art’!

FX Photo Studio HD ‘develops’

fx_logo.jpgSor­ry, couldn’t resist the pun.

Ear­li­er today the much await­ed update to FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD was released in the Apple app store.

FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD is an enhanced and iPad opti­mized ver­sion of FX Pho­to Stu­dio (for iPhone and iPod Touch) which I’d writ­ten about pre­vi­ous­ly.

A few of the fea­tures added in this update that I real­ly like are:

  • The abil­i­ty to save your image edits and effect mod­i­fi­ca­tions as pre­sets which you can then share with oth­er FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD users. This also means you can import their cool pre­sets and apply them to your pho­tos.
  • Social Net­work shar­ing now includes Tum­blr — which many peo­ple use as a pho­to­blog
  • Print­ing from the iPad — a poten­tial­ly cool fea­ture that I’ve yet to try — I haven’t had the update long enough to get near my home print­er :smileyhappy:
