Tangent 1.2 now includes Neal Dieker’s NDPATTERNS

The photo app development team at Pixite LLC, in partnership with award-winning creative technologist Ben Guerrette, is excited to announce the addition of ND Patterns + Shapes pack by photographer and designer Neal Dieker in Tangent 1.2 for the iPhone and iPad. The pack is based on NDPATTERNS, the downloadable pattern overlays by Neal Dieker widely used by photographers and artists to create stunning effects on photos. NDPATTERNS overlays have been downloaded over 100,000 times and used in over 75,000 images on Instagram.

Users now can directly apply NDPATTERNS overlays using the ND Patterns + Shapes pack inside Tangent 1.2, a creative tool that lets anyone easily transform their photos into one-of-a-kind works of art using combinations of patterns, shapes, and blends. ND Patterns + Shapes quickly adds effects that can subtly change or completely alter the look and feel of a photograph, a skill set once reserved for graphic artists.



“As one of the many inspirations behind Tangent, Neal’s patterns are a welcome addition that fit nicely into the geometric photo overlay theme,” says Tangent’s creator and lead developer Ben Guerrette. “ND Patterns + Shapes stands out by taking a more subtle approach to the image enhancement capabilities of Tangent while showcasing the wide range of effects that the app provides.”

The eye-catching patterns and shapes included in the pack are some of many included in Tangent.
