Apps. We all have them. One is never enough. There's always another one to have. Then there's those in-apps "updates". After awhile they all blur together. You find that you have...how many? Too many to really know what to do with them! Which is why I'm starting "Dave's Apps Recipe Book"...to give us all a chance to share our favorite "recipes"...how we used an app or apps to create an image. Welcome to the First Edition of my recipe book!!
Here's the deal....admit to your appoholicism and post on your blog, Flickr site, or Tumblr site a photograph you took with your iPhone/iPad/Android camera....and the app or apps you used to create it. Be specific on how your image came about. What did you do first, second, and so on to create it. Then email the link to me so I can add you to the list. There's no minimums/maximums to the apps used...or even to the subject matter. I'll be adding to the list not only today, but for as long as people send me links! Have any questions...please email those to me as well! (My email address is: clearer reflections (at) hotmail (dot) com.)
Make sure to visit your fellow app-oholics to check out their recipes and to let them know how much you appreciate their sharing. Take notes...I plan to!! Also, please check back here often to see who's joined in the fun!
The links will be numbered so you can keep track of what you have seen.
To start things off, here's my pic...and how I created it!!
First, here's the original snap I took using the "regular" iPhone camera. This was taken at an "antique mall"...the lighting was terrible and I just grabbed the shot to work with later....
And here's the final shot! I kept it simple this time...working only in Scratchcam. I didn't do any cropping, feeling that it really didn't need it. I didn't use their randomizer" function, instead I went for the "Edit" button! I played around with the color layer first....then I added the folded paper layer....and finally a scratch layer. While I played around with the adjustment slide, I decided just to leave the layers the way they came. Not a complicated "recipe"...but I do like the results!! I saved this to my camera roll...and then sent it on its way to Twitter and Facebook!!
Enough of my recipe....without further ado...here is the First Edition of Dave's Apps Recipe Book!
