New iPhoneography App – Pixel Blend Pro

Pixel Blend can help you find your inner artist by creating original photo art. The app creates impressionistic effects by manipulating the pixels of your images.

Pixel Blend was inspired by Polaroid SX-70 time zero film manipulation, a process that used unexpected tools such as paperclips to distort the film’s soft emulsion into a beautiful new look. 
You can transform your photos into impressionist art. Scratch, smudge, and smear your photographs in new ways to give them a painterly look with Pixel Blend.

This app retails for $1.99/£1.49 and you can download it here.
