DistressedFX+: a surprisingly worthwhile upgrade

Share

Five years ago I wrote a tutorial on DistressedFX, a texture app to go alongside Stackable’s and Mextures in my library of apps. I couldn’t help but compare it to those giants in texture apps, and although I loved the textures, I found the interface clunky without the versatility of Stackable’s or Mextures.

In the intervening years DistressedFX has soldiered on, occasionally releasing new texture packs. But we have recently discovered that Stackable’s has ceased updates, and it is only a matter of time before that app crashes and burns. So I have revisited DistressedFX over the last few weeks, buying several packs that I had bypassed earlier.

So, having spent money on the app, what should happen except a new version of DistressedFX – one that is not upwardly compatible? DistressedFX+ costs a relatively steep $/£9.99, but it does include all present and future packs. Is it worth it?

I’ve got to admit, I initially thought that DistressedFX+ would be going to a subscription model, which would make it a definite “NO” for me. I have too many apps that will do everything I need that I don’t have to pay additional charges every month. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that not only are all packs included, but significant changes to the clunky interface have been made – enough to make me glad to support the developer with the additional upfront price. A developer has to eat, after all. I’m glad to pay for additional value.

So the new version has a colourful new splash screen.

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Manipulating Sort in iColorama with Jerry Jobe

Share

We are so delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure.  Read Jobe’s thoughts about manipulating Sort in the hugely popular iOS app, iColorama. Take it away Jerry…..

(foreword by Joanne Carter)

“It’s been a while since I’ve covered any new features in iColorama, the premier mobile art app. The feature I will cover today, Form>Sort, was added a few years ago, and has been used repeatedly in brilliant works by many mobile artists. There aren’t a lot of modifications to the effect that can be accomplished in the Sort command itself, but I’ve discovered that you can make subtler, beautiful effects by modifying the image before applying sort, and I’d like to show you how to do that”.

My first image here used Sort on the background, and I added the flower, dog, and painted elements after.

New Projects – Our New Form of Artistic Installation aka ‘The Quilt’ Is Ready!

Share

We’re delighted to inform our readers that the quilt that so many of you contributed to, has now been completed. For those of you not aware of this project, it involved mobile artists contributing one image and each one was then carefully included within a large quilt to be displayed at the next gallery show or even Mobile Arts Festival. There has been a few obstacles along the way and we have overcome each one. This quilt was sewed together and finalised by none other than mobile artist, Lorenka Campos’ mother in law. We all owe her much gratitude. The quilt is now with Lorenka Campos, so if you would like to display it at your next event, please contact her for details.

I have also been reminded and I shouldn’t have needed to be however, “Linda Toki did the whole layout of the quilt and had it printed. She also spent days working on the catalog so I really think she deserves a shout out as the quilt would never have happened without her”. We all need to give huge thanks to Linda M. Toki – join me!!

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty seventh visual interview, this time with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom. Harkin’s art is an amalgamation of dichotomies: inside/outside, public/private, high/low – all dynamic. Her images speak eloquently to us about our own life experiences at the same depicting her own. One of Harkin’s most admirable qualities as an artist, is her hunger for inspiration and this is reflected in her varied work. When embarking on a new creation, Harkin reaches the summit, she uniquely manages to not only arrive with an aesthetically pleasing visual image but one which ensures all the elements involved are included as intended. 

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie, Kate Zari Roberts, Lynette Sheppard, Debara Splendorio, Irene Oleksiuk, Davide Capponi, Vanessa Vox, Amanda Parker, Clint Cline, Christine Mignon, Bonobo Stone, Jerry Jobe, Joshua Sarinana, Meri Walker, Alexis Rotella, Jenny Pieters and Alon Goldsmith please go here.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Jenny Pieters from Johannesburg, South Africa

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty fifth visual interview, this time with Jenny Pieters from South Africa. Pieters art strikes me as bursting with emotional depth and context. There’s a tenderness within her way of seeing, mixed with hope and despair but more so with light. With an evocation of time and place, her images imbue a deep sense interconnecting with us all, deeply. Her work is about honesty and trust with immense integrity and deserving of our unmitigated respect. (foreword by Joanne Carter)
