Welcome to TheAppWhisperer’s new section, “what apps are we using this month” series, where we discover which apps you are particularly enjoying. Kicking us off today is non-other than Award Winning Mobile Artist, Karen Axelrad.
The second app I have been using lately is Reeflex (or sometimes Slow Shutter) to impart a painterly quality by taking long exposures of people. These photos are often sent to iColorama for color and texture editing, and sometimes into a painting app like Brushstroke or Acquarella. Then I might add a bit of texture with Distressedfx sometimes using my own textures. Often, if I have several versions of a photo, I will blend them in SuperimposeX. SuperimposeX is also excellent for masking.
The third app which I have been using lately is You Gotta See This. It’s a free app and is sometimes referred to as David Hockney style.
When I teach a workshop, I use Snapseed for hands-on sessions because it is free, works on all platforms, and is very versatile. I also frequently use Procreate.
And finally, I am dipping into experimenting with AI. I hope to one day merge my own photos with AI. Wombo Dream is an easy way to start, but I have also tried Midjourney and am Beta-testing Adobe’s Firefly.
