Combo Apps/Dots and Stipples

Stipples Collage

Today’s blog is about the comparison of dots, stipples and hedcuts of different apps. I will be writing about Hedcut, Snapdot and Stipples. There will be pros and cons of each app and what I like about each of them and what they are good for. Stipple are basically dots, hatchings, engravings and lines. This was either done with printing presses or by hand. If done by hand it will take hours/days to get these pain staking detailed illustrations.

Hipstamatic Demo

I will be using this Hipstamatic Flower photo as the demo for each app. If you want to do this style of editing, it’s best to use a photo that doesn’t have a lot of details. Simple shapes and forms is what you want to use for this type of editing style, lots of details in a photo tend to make the photo look muddy.

Hedcut is going to be the first app I’ll be talking about. Now you can get this app for $.99 at the App Store, this is a pretty cool app if you just want to post them straight to Instgram or Facebook. The reason why is the app is set at very low res 640×640 which is perfect for posting on the web only.

After I load the photo it’s at the default setting, now you see the sliders down below. You can slide them to your liking for details and contrast. This app is a black and white only, so no color at all. This app is inspired or based on Kevin Sprouls. He’s a freelance artist that work at The Wall Street Journal for his portrait work.

Now after you mess with the sliders, you can pick the type of cuts or dots you want.

The you can pick where you want to post your photos or save them on your camera roll. There’s a slider to adjust the resolution and you can see 640×640 is the max.

I picked the word/type and made my photos very contrasty.

Snapdot is next and you can pick this app for $1.99 at the App Store. Now this app does save at high res, 1530×2048 or 2048×2048 which is pretty good. This app has both color and black and white options.

I loaded up my flower photo to be edited.

This is what I like about this app is you can kind of play with the dot sizes and mix it in the photo. You start off with the same size. Then play with the sliders and mix your dot sizes.

There’s an enhancement feature with this app. What it does is draw in lines to bring out details in your photo so you can have better control over the dots. You don’t have to use this feature because the app works perfectly with out the enhanced lines. If you’re still unsure you can tap on the “gear: button. There’s a screen shot to you details of enhancement works.

Snapdot Demo

This is my final edited image from Snapdot, I loved how this turned out.

Stipples-Photo Art! is the last app I’ll be talking about. You can pick up this for $1.99 at the App Store. It’s probably my fave out of the 3 because you can go beyond dots, squares and use lines. It’s also a very simple and easy to operate app. All I’m going to do is show you screen shots because this app is cut and dry.

Load up your photo and start with your default settings. The next parts all I’m going to do is show you screen shots because this app is cut and dry when it comes to editing.

As you can see with the follow screen shots it’s all explained, so I will tell you that the high res output is not that slow on iPhone 4S. I’m not sure how it handles on the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS. The res output is only 1024×1024 so it’s not really that high. You can email the photo and get a little more res output but it’s not that much more. I find that to be a pain to email photos and open them up, because of all the clutter it makes with the emails account. Plus, I have a way to push pixels output with a lot of these low res apps.

Stipples Demo

This is my final image edited with Stipples. If you have any questions please leave comments or email me You can also check out the Combo Apps Flickr Group down below or join in and post your artistic combo creations in the group pool. Have a good day and see you next week !!!
