App Of The Day – BrushStroke In Association with The National Gallery (and it’s free for the weekend)

Share

I have known about this collaboration for a few weeks and am very excited to reveal it today. Unfortunately there wasn’t time to add TheAppWhisperer into this collaboration, but the National Gallery and the team behind Brushstroke (Code Organa), did try very hard.  To celebrate The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture, The National Gallery have teamed up with Brushstroke app to offer you a free app download (usually $/£3.99) and a chance to enter their photography competition.

You’re all invited to follow @national_gallery on Instagram and use the Brushstroke app to experiment with filters, and share an image featuring architecture near you, inspired by the exhibition.

‘Monet & Architecture’ is the first ever exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London, and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic, simple, and grand.

The exhibition brings together over 75 paintings by Monet, and shows how Monet used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser-known works.

Follow @national_gallery on Instagram and share your image with us using the hashtag #MonetBrushstroke, or you can email your entry to ecrm@ng-london.org.uk.

The competition opens on 25 May at 10am BST and closes on 28 May at 11.59pm BST.

One winner will receive a framed print of their winning image with free shipping, courtesy of Brushstroke App and CanvasPop. The winner will also receive a pair of tickets to ‘The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture’ in London, the exhibition catalogue and a creative goody bag from the National Gallery Company Ltd.

The Brushstroke app is free to download (and it’s rarely free) until midnight on Monday 28 May, when the competition closes.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – ‘How To Use SnapSeed to Keep Colour in Part of a B&W Image’

Share

I’m glad to be back again to share another video tutorial on TheAppWhisperer segment, “How I Did It!™ with Rad A. Drew.” Today I have a very short and sweet video tutorial, How To Use SnapSeed to Keep Colour in Part of a B&W Image.

SnapSeed by Google, which runs on both iPhone and Android devices, has a very robust masking tool hidden in the adjustment stacks. I’ll show you how to use masking to selectively color part of an image. Note: This video assumes some basic knowledge of SnapSeed.

If you’d like more support learning SnapSeed, see my You Tube Channel, Rad Drew Photography, LLC  for additional free SnapSeed tutorials. You also may purchase my recent hour-long SnapSeed Webinar recording here. To be notified of my upcoming webinars on various mobile phone processing apps and techniques, sign up for my newsletter.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more to come! Until next time, keep on shooting!

Mobile Photography – Hydra App Giveaway Today – Shoot 32 megapixel images with your iPhone

Share

We curate mobile photography and art apps here at TheAppWhisperer as we do images, only highlightlighting ones that are worthy of your time and experience and will allow you to work at a more rewarding level. The default camera software on your iPhone is fine for most shooting situations, however Hydra allows you a little more innovation. Hydra captures more light by merging up to 60 frames to make a single high-quality picture (less noise, more highlights/shadows) on iPhone and iPad. Hydra also goes beyond the 8-megapixel sensor limit, with up to 32-megapixel high-resolution images. It uses the latest evolutions of iPhone and iPad camera hardware, as well as the latest camera APIs and GPU rendering technologies.

Hydra provides 5 specific capture modes: HDR, Video-HDR, Lo-light, Zoom, and Hi-res modes.

Mobile Art – Creative Tutorial – iColorama Procedural: Spinning Vinyl

Share

We are delighted to publish this creative tutorial using the app, iColorama to create a spinning vinyl record cover by Jerry Jobe, take a look…

 

“iColorama can do amazing things, with a little patience. I posted the image below in several iColorama Facebook groups, and it got a lot of response, so I’ll show you how to create a 45 RPM single, from scratch, in this great app.

This image used the app Over for text and Leonardo for placement onto a background and adding a shadow. Those tasks can be done in iColorama, but they are easier in other, specialised apps. While I don’t add text in the video, I do show you how to mask the disc onto a new background and create a drop shadow”.
