Today I wanted to talk about an app called Kyoobik by Jixi*Pix Software. The concept behind the app goes back to the 1960’s with Pop-Art attitude. You can use different preset of shapes, cubes and patterns along with a mix of different textures. I had a couple request on how to operate this app on Kik, so I will show you examples and screen shot details on how to use this app. The example onto is a blend test with the Kyoobik, it’s doesn’t just have cubes and shapes but the app has some patterns too. Let’s get started with the Kyoobik…
When you load a photo or take a photo this the default preset editing when a photo had been processed with this app.
There are 5 different preset section with app. This section is called Kyoobik Photos. You can slide your finger across to find the shapes or presets you’re looking for and tap on the one you like. This works in all 5 sections.
Now if you tap on the Adjust instead of the Presets, you can adjust your editing with Kyoobik to your liking with 4 different editing options. We start off with Shapes at the first edit section.
Color is next, you will see two different editing options, Tint and Kaleidoscope and strength slider.
You can tap on each of the color square and pick what color you want to change in the Kaleidoscope.
Variations is next and you can use the slider to do different styles of how three dimensional you want your photo/image to look.
Papers is what type of texture you want for your background. You can slide across with your finger in picking what kind of Paper backgrounds you want. There are a lot to choose from colors to textures.
Now when you tap on the share button on the bottom right section. There is a setting button to change what resolution you want to save your photo. I will warn you if do save at high res and just like all the other Jixi*Pix apps. This will take a minute or two to save your photo. I save all my photos at high res with all my Jixi*Pix apps.
Here is my saved edited photo with Kyoobik.
Now here is another example of using the build-in texture that are in the app. This app is great for blending patterns and textures.
Another great example is this app is great for doing portrait blending and layers editing, this is Tiffany White @tiffany916. She provided me her self portrait for editing, in part of series I should be going back to working on soon. As you can see that this app is great for portrait manipulations and they show them on the Jixi*Pix website.
Micheal from Jixi*Pix has given me 5 promo codes for Kyoobik, this is first come first serve. Once they are used up then they are gone, I’ve bought the app a while ago. There are 2 versions of this app the iPhone and iPad. You have to buy them individually, just tap on iPhone or iPad to purchase the app.
