Fisheye vs Defished is what I’ll be talking about on today’s blog post. The examples up above was taken with my Canon 40D with my Vivitar 7mm F3.5 Manual Fisheye Lens. Then edited with Photoshop and Topaz Software. The bottom photo was Defished with PTlens Software, which is the inexpensive undistort or corrective lens software. There’s is another popular software called DXO. DXO is expensive, I hardly use it and I’m not looking for hyper detail undistorted photos. PTLens is $25 USD vs. DXO which is $169 USD for standard edition and Elite Edition is $299. I don’t know the difference between the two editions but you can check out their website for more details (HERE).
Now let’s talk about the app AndifTouch app for the iPhone/iPad. You can pick this app up for $.99 for both iDevices. I did pick up this app for FREE because of Studio Talk on IPA (iPhoneART dot com) by REGI and check out Regi Gallery on IPA. You will not be disappointed. The photo up above was taken with Pro Camera and edited with AndiFTouch, DXP, Popsicolor, Rays, Photo Forge 2 and PS Express.
Here is a video demo of how AndifTouch works with the app. Now I want to warn you it’s “RAW VIDEO” with no music or sound, but this video shows you how the app works with the iPad.
These are screen shots from my iPhone of the app operates. It’s pretty cut and dry, but just in case you are unsure you can tap on the Help/Info button in the Work Area mode of the app.
This is the default page after the app is loaded up. The buttons are pretty self explanatory. “WARNING” !!! One thing I will warn you is that this app does take up a lot of memory while you use it. So make sure you turn everything off while using this app or the app will crash while you’re using it. Why does this app take up so much memory ? Because this app works at HIGH RES, so it takes up memory and gives your processor a work out.
Your photo always starts like this after you load it.
This is the “MOVE” button, so basically you move your photo around.
This is “PERSPECTIVE”, basically it’s moving angles and straightening your photos out. So if don’t like distorted angles in your photo, you can straighten them, crop it to your liking and saves at high resolution.
“O” button is for “Distortion”, this is where you can turn your photo into a Fisheye or Defished your photo.
If you mess up or don’t like how you distorted your photo, you can tape on “RESET” on the default screen and do it again. There is no undo or tap arrow back button with this app.
What you can do with this app for “Layers and Blending” is load the layers on top of each other on DXP and use Difference to make this cool looking effect to your photos. You can also blend with Image Blender and Photo Forge 2 and see what happens in those apps.
Overall this app is great app and has room for growth, this is a one of a kind app to have in your app collection. The price of this app is worth it’s weight in gold. I hope you enjoyed this post.
