The photo up above was taken with Leme Leme and edited with a FREE app called Shuchu-Sen! It’s the kind of app you use for making look like there’s drastic movement or speed of light look to you photos. I’ve discovered that there is more to this app then making things look like it’s going the speed of light or movement. You can make them look like a graphic novel image or have that comic book/manga/anime appeal too. I really enjoy playing with this app a alot. so why not blog about it. I saw this app being used by @transitionpete on Instagram, when he did his Herbie photo edit. One last thing I’m also a huge Naruto Manga & Anime fan !!!
Shuchu-sen is a very simple app, you can leave the complications at the door with this app. It’s free at the app store & an iPhone only app. Sorry iPad users this is the real advantage of having an iPhone over the iPad beside the Retina Display. Although it’s nice to have an iPad for editing photos. The directions of how to use the app is very simple.
The demo photo I’ll be using for the blog, shot with Leme Leme & the Tilt Shift lens.
After you load your photo in the app, this is your default edit at the start.
This is what it looks like when you tap on “Heavy”. you can audjsy how heavy you want with “line count” & “line width”.
Shadow is added to the mix, to give you that 3D or graphic novel effect to you photos.
When you tap on “color” it changed from black to white, sometimes you might want a white effect to you photo.
Last is white with shadow, the pure graphic effect…LOL !!!
You can tap on “edit” to see what your photo will look like after you done with your lines. You can also make the center of your photo larger or smaller by using your two fingers and pinch in or out.
My finished Shuchu-sen edit, but I’m not done with this photo yet !!!
I like to add a border to my photos, so I loaded it on to Pic Tools for my border of choice. It’s us to you with what you want to do with your photo !!!
Here are two more examples I did with Shuchu-sen but I edit them with Dynamic Light before using Shuchu-sen. I also used different borders with Pic Tools. Sometimes the best are FREE & Simple, do be fooled by the word FREE at the App Store.
