It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend - mine was wonderful. I can't believe it's already Wednesday - time for some more app talk, which has become my main means of creativity lately.
I've finally admitted something to myself...camera apps have officially replaced Photoshop as my favorite way of editing images. Who knew? Being able to make incredible alterations to an image using my iPhone (or iPad, which I use for editing) is truly amazing to me. There is an app for every type of edit or effect you could think of. I have learned about so many of them simply by playing and practicing. The more you practice, the more knowledgeable you get about what your favorite apps can do. And then, of course, there are some wonderful online courses now available that teach you everything you need to know (click HERE to read my last post about that).
I love the above image I edited this past week. I took the flower photo at the Grand Floridian resort in Disney World back in May. The photo on its own wasn't that special, but by using various apps I really liked what it became. I used the following apps to get my results: aremaC, Glaze, iColorama, Imageblender, and Stackables. To get the "line edges" you see in my finished image, I put the image into iColorama and used the Edges (#2 option/Normal) under the Style section. I saved a copy of it, and then Blended it with the Glaze version of my image in ImageBlender.
