App Art School – Create Compositionally Pleasing Photographs – Recrop
Welcome to our brand new section within TheAppWhisperer.com entitled – App Art School. Within this section we publish a range of tutorials from beginner, intermediate to professional editing techniques to help you adjust your photo art in the best possible way. Today, we’re starting with a very popular app, available both in the Apple App Store for iPhone, Recrop. To the adopter it appears to be a simple app enabling you to create compositionally pleasing photographs, it belies a complex algorithm beneath it’s surface.
Below, you’ll find a video demonstrating how to create compositionally pleasing photos, straighten without losing a part of your photograph and how to add additional space to your photographs.
How to move a photo strictly along axes?
To avoid sliding the photo frame when dragging it up, down, right, or left, touch and hold the photo firmly for some time until horizontal and vertical lines appear on the photo. Then, without releasing your finger, move the frame in the direction needed.
Why do I receive distortions after uncropping a photo?
When expanding a photo, the app analyzes the content at the edge of it and adds pixels to the photo based on that content. If it contains many details, the area added will have distortions. To avoid this, please try not to experiment with unpredictable backgrounds like faces, buildings, etc. The best results are produced whenever expanding uniform backgrounds like the sea, the sky, etc.
