Been there, done that .....

But done a bit differently this time. I downloaded a stock photo from fontplay.com to process in a few new iPad apps. This time my artsy painting like outcome was achieved without a PC or Photoshop. I took the photo and cycled through the possible presets in Portrait HD app. The preset Portrait 1 was my final choice.

I saved the image back to the camera roll then opened it in the Photocopier App. So many I liked there. I chose Carpaccio after much playing. I again saved to camera roll.

The collage was created using The Picframe App set to 2400 x 2400.


I am very satisfied with the results and will use these apps again .... Maybe even often.

Say no to small phone app photos forever .....

I took this photo previously with my iPad 3. I actually think this was the second picture I took with my new iPad. Although I liked the photo was disappointed with the resolution size. Being printable is important to a finished photo or art project to me. I purchased the Big Photo app yesterday which upscales images fairly well. I tried it on. The photo above was used as my test sample and I was satisfied with the resulting upscales. The photo below is the above photo doubled. Not a bad result.

I then tried 3x and still think it is a usable result. I have not printed anything however. Printing is my goal so hopefully I will have a happy solution with my recent app purchase.
