OutColor out does itself!

To hijack a bit of Elizabeth Browning’s famous poem, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height” of OutColor’s newest update!  YESSSS!  The good people at Vizros Software have done it.

You can now add your own background and use their expanded stock backgrounds as masks.

If you enjoy using your iPhone's camera and digital photography, do yourself a favor and get this app you will not be sorry.



Get animated with Animoto

    There’s nothing the matter with rediscovering things, and that’s the way I feel with Animoto’s (free) iPhone app, you know it really doesn’t get any easier to crank out some pretty fun and impressive video, take a look at the following video I made with my iPhone 3G of an iPhone 2G rebuild I did and turned into a video – of course set to the tune of Verdi’s Rigoletto.  This just goes to illustrate how powerful Animoto is for creating very fast, very aesthetic videos which, as mine starts to lead one, to educational purposes – or at least rebuilding a smashed iPhone.



OutColor is out of this world

image
There are a large and growing number of apps for the iPhone targeted towards art and photography, OutColor is one of them. OutColor ($1.99) by Vizros Software is an app which allows you to do some fairly sophisticated masking of images you have on your iPhone. For the casual iPhone user masking allows you to overlay different images, colors, etc on-top of a base image, as you erase layers on top of the base image you allow what’s beneath to come through, the effects can be amazing.   Users of software like Photoshop, or Sumo Paint, etc are probably quite familiar with masking, but if you’re new to digital art th


Be a Virtual Vandal with iVandal

image

Most people are not going to have the experience of actually defacing public property (not that I am encouraging doing so). Seems the iPhone is always providing new and unusual ways of expanding our life experiences, and it’s certainly better to throw virtual rocks than real ones. iVandal is a tagger starter kit for defacing your iPhone photo collection, but I wish I could use it to highlight screenshots instead.

Panorama with Panolab

image

I’ve been tinkering with photo apps lately and came across a really excellent app for stitching together your iPhones photos into a panoramic scene, PANOLAB’s free app has a lot of utility with a pretty straight forward interface.  You can load existing photos or just snap photos on the go then piece them together, rotating them with finger movements on the screen with excellent control.  When you get the images aligned just the way you want them, you can then crop and save them. 



eWeek's 10 iPhone IT Admin Applications

Recently, eWeek posted a handy round-up of 10 iPhone IT administration utilities. As it happens, I have to do a fair amount of sys admin work and was looking for just such a list. Only 2 of these apps are gratis (an SSH terminal app and flashlight), but most of them are under 10 bucks.

In the news today is Microsoft's release of its first application for the iPhone: Seadragon Mobile, an image-browsing app. And it has raised eyebrows because the same app hasn't been released for Microsoft's own Windows Mobile platform.
