Mobile Photography Tutorial – Ansel: Channeling a Master or Taking his Name in Vain?

Share

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 mobile photography app, Ansel. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Ansel retails for $0.99/£0.79 and you can download it here.

“As you might guess from the title of this article, I think it’s a gutsy move to name your app after one of the greats in black and white photography, Ansel Adams. His name and several of his images are familiar to anyone who takes even a passing interest in photography. He’s known for his painstaking attention to detail, so I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have an app named after him have the same focus. While Ansel is a nice app, I don’t think it lives up to the high expectations”.

Mobile Photography/Art Tutorial – Pixelmator for iPhone – TheAppWhisperer

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look Pixelmator, now a universal app. Read his thoughts as he puts this new iPhone version through it’s paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Pixelmator retails for $4.99/£3.99 and you can download it here.

“Last November I started a five-part series on an app new to mobile devices (see here), Pixelmator. It’s a very powerful program, but that power was limited to iPad users. That is, up until last week, when Pixelmator for iPhone was released. It makes Pixelmator a universal app, and therefore does not incur any addition cost for those who have used it on the iPad.

I’ve attempted to put it through its paces, even though I am one of those who find the smaller screen of an iPhone challenging. I have not yet found anything that can’t be done on the iPhone that could on the iPad. There are still limits on the number of levels that can be used, but it doesn’t seem to be any lower on the iPhone.

For more in-depth coverage of Pixelmator, refer to my five-part series. This article will just show how the app looks on the smaller screen of the iPhone”.

Share

We are delighted to welcome Jaime Glasser as a new Columnist to TheAppWhisperer. Glasser has recently returned to the art world after a career as a Veterinarian and a Research Scientist. She attended the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Art in Houston, Texas. She was a watercolor artist before devoting her career to animals and writing on Animal Hospice. Glasser has joined TheAppWhisperer to host a collaboratory mobile photography group and associated Column called Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions.

Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions will be written by Jaime Glasser and edited by Joanne Carter to accompany the Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions Facebook Group – see here.  We have also created a Flickr Group for you to share your images, so we can curate from here and create showcases to present within the column. Here is the link to this Flickr Group.

Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions is a collaboratory Mobile Photography and Digital Art group; each month we will randomly assign partners who exchange images and re-interpret each other’s vision through mobile Apps. Some of the best Mobile Photographers and Artists in the world are participating. We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing the incredible art that is being made. It is a wonderful experience to interpret an image in a whole different aesthetic than the artist that captured it. It is a great opportunity to get to know another artist and share in creating art with each other’s images. One of the intriguing reasons to participate is to experience having your image interpreted with an alien and surprising sensibility!

In this exciting new Column we will share experiences from participating in this group. We will have interviews with pairs of participants and get a feeling for their experiences and thoughts as they shared their images and edited each other’s art. We will have tips and comments on this collaborative process and highlight some of the images made and describe the work flow. We will also love to have your input and address any questions about the collaborative process. This is a collaborative community: Input, questions, suggestions and ideas to improve our experiences here are encouraged and appreciated!

TheAppWhisperer is growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!

Please join us in welcoming Jaime to TheAppWhisperer family, welcome Jaime…

Mobile Photography Tutorial – Snapseed 2.0 – Learning Curve Not Dangerous

Share

For many iPhoneographers, Snapseed (by Google) is an integral part of their workflow. A few taps and swipes and their images get the adjustments and pop they need. Even digital artists can add sharpening or a pop of color in mere seconds with this free app. When an app is woven that tightly into their everyday work, it’s natural to look at a complete rewrite of the user interface with trepidation.

Luckily, Snapseed’s new version, 2.0, still works the same as it did. It looks totally different, without the large boxes that cut down the amount of workspace. But when it comes down to how you work the controls, nothing has changed.
