AnyShape – Photo Editor – Updated

We’ve mentioned this app several times here and our Head of Technical Tutorials, David Hayes has written some excellent tutorials based on it too, if you’ve missed those you can read them here.

This update now includes increased zooming capabilitiy tenfold to provide more control and allow greater precision when working with images captured by older devices with significantly lower resolution cameras. There’s a bunch of other fixes but perhaps (at least to us) the most important part of this update is an integrated TheAppWhisperer icon within the app to go straight to read our tutorials – excellent update!

This is a free update, if you have previously downloaded this app, if not you can download it here. It retails for $1.99/£1.49/download here.




Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.

    I have this app and have read the tutorials multiple times on theappwhisperer!
    The app still terrifies me … maybe I need to just jump in the deep end and give it a whirl.

    Robert ~ I took a quick look at the updated version last night…and they’ve made it a lot easier to place and move the selection points. I need to do more with it but I’m pleased with what I see so far! I need to finish up a couple of things but then I’m planning to put together another tutorial on all these great changes! So…jump in…the water is fine!
