We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look a new watercolour app – Paint Logue and compares it to some of the other current popular watercolour apps. Take it away Jerry…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
"How many hammers do you need? Given my ability to bend any nail, I definitely need a claw hammer. I’ve got a pipe wrench with a hammer head on the back, for those frustrating moments when the pipe fitting WON’T BUDGE. But since I’m not pounding dents into or out of metal, I have no real need for a ball-peen hammer. (Besides the fact that I love the phrase “ball peen hammer”. It’s fun! Say it with me: Ball Peen Hammer.)
Why am I talking about hammers when I should be talking about iPhoneography apps? It just came to mind when I saw that another watercolour app was available for free this past weekend. It’s called Paint Logue (yes, there is a space in the middle – it’s not Paintlogue) and it is by a company called Nine Curves. It was first released in September, but it’s already on release 3.1.
At first I wasn’t even going to bother downloading it, because watercolour effects are easily obtainable in many, many apps. To use my analogy, who needs another hammer? It would have to be very special, and Paint Logue is not a special hammer. So rather than go into depth with an app that isn’t that deep, I think I’ll compare it to other watercolour effects. In addition to Paint Logue, I’ll look at Waterlogue, Becasso, Aquarella, and my go-to app, iColorama.
I’ll be using this bicycle image that I captured last week at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom".
