Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Photo FX Ultra Part 1: Not An Editor

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art video tutorial for our  viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the app Photo FX Ultra. Take it away Jerry…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

Photo fx Ultra retails for $2.29/£1.49 and you can download it here

“When I decided to write iDevice app tutorials, I realised very quickly that I could never cover every app out there. Hundreds of new ones are released every year, on top of the thousands that already existed when I started writing in November of 2012. Even though I’ve covered over 140 different apps, I still have some that I haven’t touched. Today’s app, Photo FX Ultra (and its companion on the iPhone, regular Photo FX) by Tiffen, is multi-featured, requiring a lot of explanation. That makes covering it a daunting task, but I thought it was time to buckle down and try to tell you more about this filter app.

Tiffen has been in the photographic business for decades, making filters for lenses. It seems that when companies who start in other areas branch out to iDevice apps, they quickly lose interest. One of my favorite B&W apps, Perfect B&W, was released by onOne Software, and then was removed from the App Store a year or so later. They didn’t want to expend the effort supporting it. PhotoFX Ultra has not been updated since October 2014, and it seems as though Tiffen may be treating it the same way as onOne’s offering.

As one might expect from a company that makes glass filters, Photo FX Ultra is not an editor, but a filtering app. It looks like an editor, but lacks certain basic controls that an editor app needs, like Brightness and Contrast, Shadow and Highlight. Changes to these basic characteristics are available as part of some of the filters, but not by themselves. Their promotional material states: “In Photo fx Ultra, you can choose from 77 exciting filters containing 934 presets organised in 8 different filter groups.”Definitely a filtering app”.

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Circular Tiny Planet: Funny Shapes?

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art video tutorial for our  viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the app Circular. Take it away Jerry…

Circular Tiny Planet retails for $1.99 and you can download it here

“The story behind the title of this week’s column is that it comes from a line in the movie Raising Arizona and a scene where two small-time hood brothers discuss some provisions they picked up for a kidnapped baby:

Evelle: I got me some baby grub, baby wipes, diapers, them disposable kind. I also got a package of balloons.

Gale: They blow up into funny shapes and all?

Evelle: No, just circular.

Circular by BrainFeverMedia is a tiny-planets style app that turns the horizon in your image into the surface of a very small planet. It wraps your image around into a circle – no funny shapes. There are a number of these apps available, including Tiny Planets and RollWorld (covered in September 2014). As with most specialised apps, there are reasons to like each of them. I say like rather than prefer, because Circular and RollWorld each has features that the other lacks, and I can make use of both apps”.
