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 Paper Artist. Read Jobe’s thoughts about this app as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…
“JFDP Labs is the maker of another app I have covered called Paper Camera. That app is an introduction to turning your photos into artwork. I call it an introduction because Paper Camera is a filter app that applies one look to the entire photo and does not allow for any user interaction through adjustments or masking.
If Paper Camera is an introductory app, then JFDP’s Paper Artist is an intermediate app. It does still limit the user in the looks that can be produced, but the ability to adjust the look, plus allowing (in essence) two looks per image, masked according to the user’s whim, gives it power beyond a beginner app.
Paper Artist is a universal app, operating on both the iPhone and iPad. I’ll be looking at the iPhone app today, but it works similarly on the iPad. It also has an Android version, so I get the rare treat of being able to write a tutorial that should translate just fine to that platform”.
