‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Lightroom CC for your Smart iPhone


Hi, everyone! I’m back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial, this one on using Lightroom CC for capturing and processing RAW files.

Capturing and processing RAW files has long been the standard among traditional photographers due to the increased quality that can be attained from RAW files. Now, the power of RAW shooting and processing and the resulting quality is available on mobile devices.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Sculpting Light with Dramatic Black and White”


Hello, to TheAppWhisperer Community! Thank you for allowing me to share another How I Did It!™ video, this one on the favorite app, Dramatic Black and White.

Dramatic Black and White, by Jixi Pix Software, runs on both iPhone and Android, and transforms color images into Black and White with tools that manage the tone, softness, brightness, and contrast of the image. It’s great for architecture as well as portraits and landscapes, and provides creatives with a great deal of control in determining the final look of the image. (For information on other apps for creating Black and White images, see my blog post, Creating Black and White Images with Your Phone

Connected Space develop Augmented Reality  Enabled Smartphone Application for London’s largest International Urban Art Festival


Connected Space, in partnership with RISEgallery, have developed an urban wayfinder app to support RISEfestival, London’s largest international urban art festival. The app – already live – will help increase people’s engagement with art in the public realm, as well as provide in-depth user behavioural analytics to demonstrate return on investment.

Organised by Croydon’s award-winning RISEgallery, the festival will see the arrival of over 60 new murals in and around Croydon town centre, created by world renowned artists such as Dotmaster, Conor Harrington, BK Fox, Lovepusher and Cityzen Kane. The festival will also feature a huge free public events programme, incorporating talks, tours, walks, workshops and parties.

RISEfestival has two key aims. Firstly, to remove barriers to art and help the community engage with it. Secondly, to bring more people into the borough, presenting the new face of Croydon to the public and helping to change the perception of the town whilst it is being transformed via a regeneration project worth £5 billion.

Connected Space is developing this urban way-finder app for RISEfestival, built on the company’s technology platform. The app includes a live-mapping powered ‘guided tour’ of the street artworks around the town, with images and audio descriptions of each installation. Users

Artworks by Whatshisname and Schoony will appear as app-only exclusives. This means the work will appear on the screen in real-time, enabling the user to explore the pieces using the environment around them. These unique extras unlock in the app depending on the users location, and add an extra layer to the RISEfestival experience.

The app will also include information on the other events happening across the town, and the option for users to give feedback on their visit.

Behind the scenes, the app will collect deep user behavioural analytics on the number of visits, the duration of single and total visits, and the number of repeat visits. As well as information on routes, dwell times, engagements, and feedback from visitors. This will help show return on investment to the event sponsors and give vital information to help build the case for future exhibitions.

The RISEfestival app is available to download now.

New! Mobile Photography – App of the Day – The Photographer’s Ephemeris – Android & iOS


As part of our new section, ‘App of the Day’, we want to ensure that you’re up to speed with the very best photography, art and videography apps, across all platforms. The Google Play store is now bursting with photography apps, that more often than not, are also available on iOS too. Days of fragmentation with the Android system are fading and the hardware is good too. The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) is a brilliant app and one that’s available across iOS and Android platforms. The Photographer’s Ephemeris is a powerful application to help you plan outdoor photography in natural light, especially landscape and urban scenes. It is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth.

It must be pointed out that the Android version of this app is not as rich as the iOS version and this is reflected in the price. However, this app is hugely popular across both platforms and that’s simply because it is an essential tool for anyone who needing access to this information.

Just updated, TPE 4.0 offers a number of new features, making use of the Augmented Reality using ARKit – not to be missed!

$8.99 – iTunes Store (iOS)

$2.99 – Google Play (Android)
