We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the popular mobile photography and Art app Colorburn, previously known as Colors. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).
“Should you worry if an app is released and seven months later they change the name? Normally, I’d be a little leery that perhaps the developers wanted to remove all traces of a bad first attempt. But in the case of today’s app, Colorburn by Wanman, Inc., I think it was a fine decision. You see, it was originally called Colors. That’s too generic a name, and I’m sure it proved hard to find on the App Store.
But Colorburn is actually a nice little app for 99 cents. It’s universal between the iPhone and iPad, but it only operates in portrait mode. It actually has the 1000 filters that it promises, and the engine used to deliver those filters is easy to use and fairly robust. As you would expect with an app called Colorburn (or Colors), the filters manipulate color. There are no light leaks, textures, bokeh, blur or grunge. Let’s take a look”.
