APPquestion: If you could use only one app, which would you choose?

We are delighted to publish this wonderful article by our APPart Editor Bobbi McMurry, it relates to a question she raised within our Facebook Group for this column. We are sure you will find this incredibly informative.  Over to you Bobbi (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“A few weeks ago we had a lively discussion (within our specific Facebook group for this Column – see here), about the one art app we couldn’t live without. There were 155 posts in this talk that not only named specific apps, but also touched on the aspects we like about our go-to apps.

I have created a summary highlighting the items mentioned in our APPart conversation. Please note, this summary in no way attempts to cover the vast array of features contained in these very robust apps”.

We are delighted to publish Part 5 (of 5) of a wonderful series of tutorials covering the brand new Pixelmator app for iPad. If you have missed Part 1, please go here, for Part 2, go here for Part 3, go here and for Part 4, go here.  This time Jerry discusses Retouch and Effects in this extensive tutorial.  We’re quite sure you will find this tutorial invaluable (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“We’ve come a long way in our discussion of Pixelmator, covering layers, brushes, selections, text, shapes, painting, erasing, layer styles, blend modes, and many other things. But we aren’t done yet: even after this final entry, there will be a few minor features left for you to discover on your own. This time around two large areas of Pixelmator will be covered: Retouch and Apply Effects.

I won’t be starting with a blank canvas, as I did in the last discussion on brushes. Instead, I have a sunset image I took at Epcot last week. I captured it using vividHDR, which does a terrific job of capturing the shadows and highlights and giving your images pop”.

“I have to admit I’ve dreaded this part of the series on Pixelmator. Put a brush in my hand and disasters occur. I immediately revert to drawing stick figures larger than houses – and the houses have curly smoke coming out of the chimney.

But Pixelmator offers brushes, smudgers and erasers that allow you to create art from scratch, without any photos. So here I am, trying to explain tools that hopelessly overmatch my meagre skills. Buckle yourself in and let’s get started.

Pixelmator allows you to start with a blank canvas – Portrait, Landscape or Custom, which lets you set the dimensions of the canvas. All produce a plain white canvas”.

“In Part 3 of my series on Pixelmator, we’ll look at different sources for layers and glance at selection tools as well. I’m covering a lot of ground here, with over 40 screenshots of the app, so let’s get started.

We’ll begin with the same image of candles we used in the overview. Over on the left is the Layers palette, and on the right top is a + sign used to add layers from different sources. (Remember, if you swipe down on the Layers palette, another + sign will appear that allows you to add a blank layer).”

iPad Photography App Tutorial Pixelmator Part 2: Create Image, Layer Basics and Adjust Color by Jerry Jobe

We are delighted to publish Part 2 (of 5) of a wonderful series of tutorials covering the brand new Pixelmator app for iPad. If you missed Part 1, please go here.  This time Jerry goes a little deeper, discussing layering and more.  We’re quite sure you will find this tutorial invaluable (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“In Part 1 of the Pixelmator series of articles, the basics were covered: opening a file, adding layers, dealing with the gallery, saving a merged version of the layered image. Of course, that merely scratches the surface of what Pixelmator can do. In this entry, I’ll be talking about layering extensively. Layering is the main benefit of full-featured editors like Pixelmator, Photoshop Touch, Leonardo, Laminar Pro and others. Layering allows you to combine images, textures, text and other objects while giving you the ability to edit each object individually. Also, you can return to each object and re-edit; you’re not forced to commit an edit before the whole is finished.

The quickest way to produce a layered file is through the use of templates that are packaged within Pixelmator. These templates are accessed through the Create Image function. Templates are stock images with various shapes, test objects or textures added in layers on top of the stock images.

Below you’ll see a screenshot of my gallery, and there’s a big white square with a + which is the button to create an image. Create Image can also be accessed by tapping the + in the upper left corner and selecting Create Image from the drop-down list”.

iPad Photography App Tutorial – Pixelmator Part 1: Overview by Jerry Jobe

Share

We are delighted to publish our latest iPad Photography App Tutorial by Jerry Jobe. This week Jerry writes Part 1 (of 5) on the brand new Pixelmator iPad app (as previewed at Apple’s latest Keynote, introducing the iPad Air 2). Pixelmator is a hugely accomplished app and we are quite sure you are going to really enjoy this series of tutorials. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“Certain companies are justly celebrated for their image manipulation software on the desktop. Adobe is one of those, with Photoshop and Lightroom. When those companies decide to expand into mobile devices, the results are highly anticipated.

Such was the case when the Mac desktop product Pixelmator was adapted recently for use on the iPad. I have to admit that my desktops, since the early eighties, have been PC/Windows devices. Therefore, I cannot say how well the Pixelmator experience translates to the iPad. All I can do is go over the app as it currently exists and compare it to other apps in the same category: photo/drawing suites. These suites can accomplish a dizzying number of tasks, and need multiple tutorials to cover them with anything approaching completeness. Accordingly, this overview will be followed by a number of additional tutorials that will cover various aspects of Pixelmator”.

iOS Photography Tutorial – Hallows Eve, and a Two-Year Celebration by Jerry Jobe

Share

 

We are delighted to publish our latest iOS Photography Tutorial by Jerry Jobe. This week Jerry topically writes about Hallows Eve, an app you will most likely want to utilise this coming weekend. Jerry is also marking a two year anniversary of tutorial writing and we have linked to the apps that we have published at the end of this article. Jerry has been incredibly busy and we are sure you’ve all enjoyed each tutorial immensely, we certainly have, they represent an invaluable archive, thank you Jerry. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Hallows Eve retails for $0.99/£0.69 and you can download it here

“On November 7, 2012, I published my first tutorial on Hipstamatic. As I approached the anniversary, I had a request from The App Whisperer site, which also publishes my tutorials (since late July 2013) to do a large set of tutorials in the new app Pixelmator. That will follow in ensuing weeks, but I needed to mark the anniversary first; therefore, I am “celebrating” a bit early. At the end of the article you will find a list of the apps I have covered in the last year. You’ll find that my weekly tutorials have resulted in fewer than 52 apps covered. That is because I had several multi-part tutorials, several procedurals, and quite a few additional tutorials on apps I covered the year before, such as iColorama and Paint FX.

Last year on the anniversary I covered major changes to several apps, because those updates, while not making the tutorials obsolete, required additional explanation. Snapseed, Big Lens, and the Brain Fever apps like LensLight and LensFlare had changed substantially in 2013. There were no major updates among the apps I’ve covered in 2014, so instead I’ll talk about Hallows Eve, a new entry by JixiPix that you might get a chance to use in the next few days before the holiday is upon us.

Hallows Eve is not a subtle effect; but by judicious use of blending in other apps a subtle effect can be achieved”
