Spotlight on Toonpaint and Hipstamatic

This moody shot was taken and enhanced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, our son. He used an app new to me called Hipstamatic. He calls it "Crazy Light on Snow". I love it.

Digital Diva Robin Robertis has been at it again using Toonpaint iPhone app. I downloaded it as soon as I saw her images. Sort of Roy Lichtenstein meets Shockmypic with a little Marvel comics thrown in.

The Buddha image below completely wowed me. Here's Robin's recipe for the manipulation:
Pict taken into ToonPaint,

Filterforge for levels and sharpening. Classic FX to adjust temperature. Save image. Start again with saved image by choosing day filter in Classic FX. Bring both versions into Juxtaposer to bring out colors.
Back into filter forge to auto enhance, oil painting, again in watercolor. Back into Juxtaposer to bring out a texture I like.

AppBerrant Behavior or Unnatural Acts with my iPhone

This multiple exposure image begins with a shot of ti leaves mushed with GooeyFaces to a Georgia O Keefe style abstract (see this photo at Digital Diva / Digital Dude). I then combined it with a butterfly photo and a straight photo of ti leaves using DXP app with the difference blend mode.

I shot a wooden door that had a cutout of moon and star, lightened it in Photogene app to use it as an element in multiple exposure images. I combined it with several textural shots of grasses and weeds in DXP app using the difference blend mode to give the turquoise and deep magenta colors. The edgy framing is from Edgepix, an app no longer available sad to say. It is a combo of two different framing options.
This multiple exposure image combines a photo of a clear, plastic dragonfly with photos of a gong, a wood paneled wall, and grasses. DXP was the app. Frame is from Ezimba app.
