Mobile Photography / Art – Three Years of Tutorials: A Recap, an Assembly Feature, and an iColorama Procedural

Share

Huge thanks to Jerry Jobe on his Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial Third Year Writing Anniversary. We have loved and enjoyed every single one of Jobe’s tutorials and we know that you do too.  This week, Jobe does something a little different, take a look…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

“On November 7, 2012, I published my first tutorial on Hipstamatic. As usual, on my anniversary, I like to take a look back. But there’s more to this article than a walk down memory lane. There’s a feature currently in beta for Assembly that I’d like to show you, and an iColorama procedural on how to create a multicolored water color painting like this one. So let’s get started!”

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Abstract Painting: It’s Time to Play

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the app Abstract Painting. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Abstract Painting is free and you can download it here.

“Some apps I’ve discussed over the years are very serious photo editing apps, giving you’re the ability to manipulate curves or eliminate color casts. Some have given users serious painting tools, such as iColorama and Pixelmator.

Some apps, though, are not serious and give users tools to experiment with or to have fun with. These tools may take the form of stickers (which I loathe) or stock-figure cutouts (not much better). Most of these fun apps are not meant to be robust editing or painting apps, and have drawbacks in the user interface that reflect their simple nature.

Today’s app, Abstract Painting by Javier Casares Villaverde, is a free app that has the look of being as much an experiment for the developer as it is for the user. It has some very nice tools for creating abstracts, but the user interface has two minor and one major drawback that may keep it from being an essential app.

The first minor (in my eyes) drawback is that it is built exclusively for the iPad, and exclusively in portrait mode. There does not seem to be any real reason why this app could not be used on the iPhone. That is in keeping with the impression that the developer was learning as he wrote this”.
