Iphoneography: DistressedFX App
I'm having a creative slump this past week. No matter what I've attempted to process with PSE, I've felt deeply dissatisfied. Have you ever had one of those weeks? I sure hope it passes soon! My iphone has saved me, letting me at least dabble with my images and satisfy a little bit of creativity.
I thought I'd share some iPhone images where one of my favorite apps, "DistressedFX", was used in the editing process (click HERE to see more info). This app is fantastic - it adds gorgeous textures and overlays to your phone images, and gives them a distressed, painterly effect. The textures were created by Cheryl Tarrant, an artist from Tennessee. They work especially well with landscapes. It's a very easy app to use and you can adjust the opacity of the textures (and also the contrast, brightness, and saturation). It has blur effect options also. I highly recommend it! It costs $0.99. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
NOTE: In the table/chairs image and the house with columns image, I combined DistressedFX with Glaze, another painterly app (click HERE). It's a wonderful combination that I use often!
