Mobile Photography – Distressed FX App Updated and We Have Promotional Codes To Giveaway

Share

I am so proud of mobile artist Cheryl Tarrant, Distressed FX is her original idea, an iOS photo editing app that adds texture and atmosphere to pictures, giving them a dream-like quality. Popular on Instagram, with over 90,000 tagged photos, users have found it simple to turn any photo into a work of art.

With well over a million users, it has reached #1 in the App Store charts in 24 countries, and the #1 Photo and Video app in in 43 countries

Tarrant, who lives in the countryside in Tennessee, USA along with her many pets (including peacocks and chickens!), is a texture artist who has made a living selling her painterly textures to fellow digital artists. This exploded once she decided to create an app, enabling many more people to create art using only their mobile phone.

A casual online conversation with a friend resulted in a simple-to-use app that people of all ages and genders love to use. Developer Steve Liddell, who lives in the UK, said, “I wanted to keep the app true to Cheryl’s artistic vision. It really is her work shining through rather than the technology – and that’s what makes it unique in the App Store.”

We have been given some promotional codes to giveaway to our readers, would you like one? If so, please join our Twitter followers here and like us on Facebook here and post a comment to this post (so we can obtain your email address) and hopefully, we will then be able to send you a code. All winners are selected at random.

Neither Tarrant nor Liddell expected Distressed FX to be as popular as it is and have a good working relationship despite never meeting, only corresponding online.
