iPhone App Art Smorgasbord

Diva Lucy Lamkin chose three of her favorite apps to showcase here. They are fun and easy apps to play with - the only downside is that the app has the control rather than the artist. Of course, that could be an upside too. Not everyone likes to spend 20 minutes creating one image on her iPhone like I do.

As my friend and photoshop guru always asks "Is it a bug or a feature?" Depends on your point of view.

This app is called Photo Sketch - I never thought of using it with portraits. I did trees in snow most recently with it. This is a whole new take on the app.

PaintMee seems to lay down thick oil paint to create a photo painting out of any photo. I really like the wave.

Gasp, a photo app I don't own! PhotoTropedelic renders images into 60's Peter Maxx like pop art. The two women came out very interesting.

Taking It Slow With The iPhone

Sister Diva Judy Norton shares her latest iPhone art photos using Slow Shutter app. She photographed prayer flags in a strong breeze for the first photo and the same strong breeze moved these Hawaiian dresses on the laundry line to create a lovely abstract in photo #2. Photoforge app was used to lighten and optimize the final images.

Art That is Just Glowing

The Digital Dude , aka my handsome hubby Dewitt Jones, introduced sme to a new app - yes, I know I have more than my iPhone can hold, but I fervently believe you can never have too many apps. This app is called GlowMe. It places a glow around the lines of your photo. While some apps have a glowing lines filter, this one not only gives a neon tube look to the lines, it seems to supersaturate the image. And it's very cool. Check these out:
