Apps: Photography

The old days are back...sort of!


Many years ago, when I was a wedding photographer, I used a Hasselblad. I loved the 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 square format. Although many iPhone apps allow you to create a square image, I finally found one that does exactly what I want it to do. As the developer puts it, "If you find other camera apps over-fussy (and their photographs annoyingly oblong) then 6x6 is the app for you." It allows you to create color or black & white pictures. You shoot like you were using the old Hasselblads. It's like going home again. Gotta go...I'm taking pictures with the 6x6 app.

Facebender App Review


Facebender is an entertainment app where you can warp, bend, twist, and change any picture that can be uploaded.  The options are vast and with additional updates; there isn’t any doubt that more features will become available.  But, let’s take a minute and dissect the app to really show its capability.

I used to think - well -- I'll have to take it over to Photoshop and create a watermark to project it. I might be a bit later to the game, but there is a wonderful app that is so much easier than using Photoshop -- iWatermark by Plum Amazing.
