Gradiator – New iPhone Photography App

Share

Gradiator does one thing, and does it well: designs gradients. Whether you need a striking image to use in your designs, or the source code to display the gradient on a web page, in a Mac app or an iOS app, Gradiator is there to save you time.

You can design your own, or automatically create one by extracting the colours from a photo. You can create gradients in a variety of shapes and styles — linear, radial, or angular, looped or bounced up to ten times. You can even blend your gradient with a photo to create special effects, such as vignettes or vintage processing.

This app retails for $0.99/£0.69 and you can download it here.

When you’re done, bookmark it, save the resulting image back out to the photo library, share your gradient as a link via email or Twitter, or create a “Gradient ID Card”, a handy reference card that includes the gradient colour values and a special code that can be scanned* to load the gradient, allowing you to share your gradients via photo-sharing sites or even in print.

* Requires “QR Code” scanning software, not included.

Thank you for this post, bought the application right away. It is absolutely fantastic and very smooth. I could quickly create great color tones to enhance pictures, even though I have no experience in gradients.
Unfortunately it crops pics to square format. And there is no user manual, which means it took me half an hour to understand how to create a natural looking vignette.
