...an Apps for iPads Review
Sometimes, since we see so many apps day in and week out, we feel that we couldn’t possibly test yet another photo editing app for iPads. BUT then along comes an app like iColorama for iPad by Talonsodev! We had so much fun playing with this app this morning! It is truly amazing in all the effects it can muster that you just have to see it to believe it.
This video will give you a nice overview of just some of the effect that iColorama is capable of. Note that the use of masks, single or multiple, allows you to mix and match effects in one photo. We played with some pictures, one a portrait and another a still life to give you a feel of what we could do without trying and without utilizing masking areas. The results were fun, enhanced, interesting results. Remember too that you can build up layers by saving and then editing the saved photos too. The results are limitless and only hampered by your own imagination and time.
- Tone: Technicolor Enhance, Pastel, Bleach, Black, Black and White, Duotone and Gradient
- Presets: Lomo, Tint, Color Presets (45 presets), Textures and Border
- Style: Sketch, Simplify, Painterly, Edges, Flat and Pixels
- Effects: Vignette, Grain, Glow, Blur, Denoise, Sharpen and Tiles
- Adjust: Vibrance, Enhancer, Tinter, Exposure, Saturate, Channels and Recolor
- Form: Flip, Straight, Deforms and Escher
We cannot stress enough that our tests were limited by time constraints BUT we are amazed and blown away by how simple the effects were able to produce. The iColorama app for iPad is very intuitive so that you are up and running right “out of the box” and quickly producing stunning results. You don’t require a photography or art degree, you don’t need all the expensive filters and pricey software, all you really need is iColorama.
I have to admit, I love Snapseed for “fixing” photographs. I cannot wait until I can take the time to combine the two, Snapseed AND iColorama, to see just how far I can push the envelope! Since I can simply save my edited photos from each right to my iPad Photo app I can hop between the two for what I feel will be stunning results!
If you enjoy enhancing your photos you are DEFINITELY going to want to get your hands on iColorama for iPad! I am just amazed at how easy it is to use, and how inexpensive it is to own! Download it and test it out for yourself… and then give us a holler in our comments section letting us know just what YOU think of this great photo editing app!
