Mobile Photography – App of the Day Recrop (previously known as AntiCrop) by TouchRetouch Developers ADVA Soft

Share

We are delighted today to annouce our App of the Day Recrop. This is an updated app, which was previously known as AntiCrop) by the developers of the uber popular TouchRetouch app, ADVA Soft. ReCrop has become more composition orientated as opposed to AntiCrop. It gives the operator a second chance to reframe your original shots, post capturing – allowing you to crop, uncrop and straighten.

The update, is not just all that though, there’s also a newly improved algorithm, meaning this app is now even better at filling in the expanded areas based on the content surrounding it and works best with uniform backgrounds. Straightening is lossless, just as it was in the previous version.

In addition to that, you can flip and rotate photos, move the frame strictly along the axes, if needed and choose from multiple saving and sharing options.

There are also embedded inapp tutorials too in the dramatically redesigned interface, to help you further.

We have embedded a tutorial video within this post, for you to further understand what we have written here, see below.

And of course, you know our generousity knows no bounds to our dear readers, so we’re going to offer you a chance to receive a promotional code for this app. Firstly, you will need to post a comment, in the comments section of this post, on our website – not on our vast social media channels, we need them at TheAppWhisperer.com – so we can extract your email address in order to organise the giveaway.

Apple Introduces New 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil Support

Share

Whilst I was busy in Paris at a press event on 27th March, 2018, Apple quietly updated its most popular iPad with support for Apple Pencil plus even greater performance, starting at $329/£319. The new 9.7-inch iPad and Apple Pencil give photographers and artists the ability to be even more creative and productive, from post editing photographs, creating images, sketching ideas and jotting down handwritten notes to marking up screenshots. The new iPad is more versatile and capable than ever, features a large Retina display, the A10 Fusion chip and advanced sensors that help deliver immersive augmented reality, and provides unmatched portability, ease of use and all-day battery life.*

“iPad is our vision for the future of computing and hundreds of millions of people around the world use it every day at work, in school and for play. This new 9.7-inch iPad takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for inspiring creativity and learning,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “Our most popular and affordable iPad now includes support for Apple Pencil, bringing the advanced capabilities of one of our most creative tools to even more users. This iPad also has the power of the A10 Fusion chip, combined with the big, beautiful Retina display, advanced cameras and sensors that enable incredible AR experiences simply not possible on other devices.”

iPad’s beautiful 9.7-inch Retina display delivers gorgeous detail and vivid colours, and features a higher-resolution touch sensor that enables Apple Pencil support. First introduced for iPad Pro, Apple Pencil has become a popular and versatile tool among students, professionals and creatives and is now available to even more customers.

Apple Pencil delivers a remarkably fluid and natural drawing experience. Advanced sensors measure both pressure and tilt, and provide pixel-perfect accuracy and low latency for activities from note taking to illustration in apps like Notability, Pages, Numbers,  Keynote and Microsoft Office. iPad’s palm rejection technology even makes it possible to rest your hand on the screen while you use Apple Pencil.

The new iPad features the Apple-designed A10 Fusion chip with 64bit desktop-class architecture, delivering 40 percent faster CPU and 50 percent faster graphics performance for seamless multitasking and graphics-intensive apps.** The front- and rear-facing cameras offer exceptional low-light performance and HD video recording for document scanning, moviemaking and FaceTime calls.

The new iPad is a stunning, large viewfinder for immersive AR experiences. Its Retina display, powerful chip, enhanced cameras and advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer for accurate motion tracking, are designed to support the next generation of AR apps.

Built for durability and mobility, the new 9.7-inch iPad features an aluminium unibody construction and ultrafast wireless that can deliver two times faster cellular data connections, so it is even easier to stay connected anywhere.*** With Apple SIM, customers can connect to wireless data plans right from their device when traveling in more than 180 countries and regions.****

iOS 11 introduces powerful new features for iPad. The Dock provides quick access to frequently used apps and documents from any screen, and makes it easier to multitask with Split View and Slide Over. Drag and Drop makes moving images, text and files between apps easier than ever. Apple Pencil is more deeply integrated into iPad with support for inline drawing. The Files app provides a central place to access and organise files no matter where they are located — on iPad or in the cloud with built-in support for iCloud Drive and providers like Box, Dropbox and others.

Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art with Jerry Jobe

Share

Call me nosy, call me curious, call me innovative, call me stimulating, my husband calls me se.., ok let’s not go there 😉 As a Journalist I have an incredibly enquiring mind, I want to know everything and there’s never enough hours in the day to fulfill all of my desires, that’s how most days feel to me. However, the weekends are about to become even more fulfilling because we have a new section opening up here at TheAppWhisperer.com, called ‘Weekends of Mobile Photography and Art’. I want to know what you all get up to at the weekends, in respect of our favourite subject. Kicking us off this week is the one and only Jerry Jobe! Take a look…

“Joanne Carter asked me to put together an article to outline what I do in mobile art on the weekend. I’m rather a strange choice, since I am retired, and weekends are not much different from weekdays. When I was writing weekly tutorials, I would gather my screenshots or rehearse a video prior to putting the article together on Monday. Since I no longer do that, my schedule is not limited to weekend/weekday work.

So, in order to get into the spirit of a weekend, I’m writing about what artwork helps me relax. For me, it’s starting with a blank canvas and creating abstracts. Playing with shape, color and texture appeals to me, and learning to use my apps in new and surprising ways is always a blast.
