Let’s talk about 3 apps, that just had a huge update and added effect. I’m talking about Lens Flare, Lens Light and Alien Sky by BrianFever Media and developer James Grote. All three apps are universal to the iPad now, which is great because I know there were people who wanted Alien Sky for the iPad. James also added more effects, on Lens Light and Alien Sky, made it easy to save and render the effects easier…
I’m going to use this Crispy Black and White photo of San Diego Downtown I shot and edited yesterday. The reason why I’m using this type of photo is you will see the effects of the these apps a lot better in the 3 demos.
I’m going to start with them demo with Lens Flare. As you can see when the is loaded there’s description of each button and what it does.
After I load the photo I’m going to scroll through and look at the different effects. I couldn’t fit them all on one screen shot but you get the idea.
Lens Flare and Lens Light have the same lens textures effects to play on top of your edited photo. It’s too give it that realistic glare to your photo.
These are your save options with all 3 of the apps.
This is my finished edited Lens Flare photo.
I wanted to show you the cool new effect that was added to Lens Light. What I love about this app is now I can get rid of Space Paint and just keep Lens Light. Why, because the app saves at high resolution.
My finished edited photo with Lens Light.
Alien Sky has more planets, stars and other cosmic effects.
Here are a few of the new planets that have been added with other effects.
There is something else that is different about this app too. It has FILTERS instead of Lens Textures to layer on top of the screen.
The render button has moved to the effects layer area on all three of the apps. It’s no longer on the save part of the screen anymore. You can also clear and cancel your layers.
Now let’s say you’re not sure how much you’ve added layers on your photo, you can tap on the “Image Visible” button below the “Filter Darken” button. The photo will disappear and you only see the layers you’ve use only. This will give you an idea of what your photo will look like with out the photo. Just in case you feel you’ve missed a spot or need more planets, stars and other cosmic goodies. This is a really cool feature and comes in handy sometimes.
This is my finished edited photo with Alien Sky. Now if you have any questions about this blog post please leave comments or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out the Combo Apps Flickr Group down below and see all the other cool iPhone Artists. I wanted to
