Over to you Jerry (foreword by Joanne Carter)…



‘While working on a tutorial about the framing app Diptic, it occurred to me that Framing does not have to be the final step in your workflow. By passing the image through other apps after the framing, you can get some interesting results.

My first example is taken from the first Diptic tutorial. I used the same photo within each cell of the frame, and made the border a thin black line.



I then took that image through Moku Hanga, and that helped to bring the image together.


The original Hipstamatic shot of this window has a thin black frame.


I covered that frame with a white frame in the Frames module in Snapseed. I stayed in Snapseed and used Drama, then finished up with Grunge, which “smeared” the edges of the frame, incorporating the frame into the image.


Look again at the order of your workflow. You may find that switching it up can give you the look you want.

Never content with just scratching the surface of what an app can do, Jerry Jobe decided to pass on what he learned about imaging apps to others. He’s constantly trying to figure out just what tools other artists have used, and trying to incorporate them into his own work, in an attempt to find his style. He’s written tutorials on over 145 apps so far, which you can find (along with his Song of the Day entries) at He lives near Atlanta, Georgia, where he also finds a creative outlet in acting and directing in community theater.
