The new iPadOS powers unique experiences designed for iPad

Share

Yesterday, 3 June 2019, Apple previewed iPadOS, the powerful operating system with a new name to recognise the distinctive experience of iPad. iPadOS builds on the same foundation as iOS, adding powerful new capabilities and intuitive features specific to the large display and versatility of iPad. Introducing new ways to work with apps in multiple windows, more information at a glance on a redesigned Home screen and more natural ways to use Apple Pencil, iPadOS also benefits from the great new updates in iOS 13, making it the perfect device for consumers and creative pros alike.

“iPad transforms how people work and express their creativity, and with iPadOS, we’re taking it even further by delivering exciting capabilities that take advantage of its large canvas and versatility,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “iPadOS delivers exciting features, including a new Home screen with widgets, more powerful multitasking and new tools that make using Apple Pencil even more natural.”

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Create Collages with Image Blender

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have suggestions for future topics, please email me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com

This tutorial features the long time favorite app, Image Blender, by JHND i Sverige AB. There are more sophisticated blending apps available (such as SuperImpose X, by Pankaj Goswami), but I love Image Blender for its elegant simplicity and ease of use. Its simple Arrange and Masking tools, and its assortment of standard blend modes are all that’s needed for many projects.

In this tutorial I share how I combined two images – one of a dancer and the other of a tree – into this blended result using the Arrange and Masking tools.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Select a Single Video Frame with Video2Photo

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

In this seven minute video I share the iPhone-only app, Video2Photo by Francis Bonnin. This simple and easy to use app lets us extract a single frame from a video and process it as we would any photo.

Why is this great?!?

Because now we can record sports, our pets, our kids, dancers – any fast moving subject – then select the single frame that best captures the action. And the quality of the single image is comparable to photos taken with the native camera or other camera apps, so quality is not compromised.

Take a look at my video below:

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Bob Weil

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the seventh of this year’s series of interviews and the nineteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Bob Weil, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

On My Radar- Eight Apps for a Desert Island with WiFi by M. Cecilia São Thiago

Share

I am a woman who loves cautiously but willingly, when my soul is touched. M. Cecilia São Thiago is an artist who not only touches my soul, she holds it. The radiance of her passionate being shines through in her art. In this interview, like so many, that I ask of her, she takes my request and then metaphorically seduces it with her own narrative, the sign of an excellent and inspiring artist. São Thiago’s art is a testament to the collective consciousness of a life well lived, creating portraiture as an atmospheric landscape, one that abolishes the distance between all who view it. Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard wrote “It is quite true what philosophy says, that life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other principle, that it must be lived forward”. Here’s the thing, with São Thiago, we know there’s an adult in the room, one that composites memories, fantasies, introspection and awareness into a unique enchantment of the age in which we lived and live. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

We have another brand new section here at TheAppWhisperer called ‘On My Radar’ and this time we are asking a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists, which apps they would take with them on a unique desert island, that has wifi! We want to know exactly what apps are really on their radar and why. As well as eight apps, we have also allowed each artist to select a book and a luxury object on this luxury journey. Kicking us off with our seventh issue of this section, is non other than the highly talented M. Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil.

Starting from the principle that the Island has WIFI, I give myself the right to think that I am not in danger and I do not have to worry about taking my Swiss Army Knives or survival books in the tropical forest or the desert I have here… So I place myself in the perspective of who is going to be well treated and what will be demanded of me will be my testimony as a usufruct of the island, as a photographer ‘Flaneuse’ and maybe as a thinker and idealiser of the project itself, where I am above all to be confronted with the company of myself.

Above all I want to be confrontational with my own company, and how could it not be, I start again talking about the self-portrait and the representation he has in photography and the arts.

I love doing Face destruction with lots of apps for iPad, and only one self-portrait can be used for that because I do not think anyone else would like to see his face destroyed as I do with mine… ;P  !!”
