Instead of Color Splash, I use Color Splurge. After comparing the 2, decided to keep the latter.

Given that you've taken the opportunity to try both, what was it about Splurge that sealed the deal? (Or, what was it about Splash that made you reject it?)

Plehk - When you first posted the shot, I wondered how you got that B&W feel, yet colored sky. Good one!

Should've just asked!  ;) :)
Yeah, I should have. Told you I liked it a lot.

I can't remember why I preferred Color Splurge. I have so many camera related apps, I try to weed out a few NGs every day. I remember trying out these two and one other, ezColor (terrible, low Rez result).

I like Color Splurge because it turns out a decent final product, is easy to do with a stylus and allows some resizing of the final photo. I have a feeling I found the two were very similar and I just opted for one rather than keeping both.

@Selkii the cat pic was using ColorSplash.

Gonna give Splurge a go.

EDIT. just tried Splurge and am not sure about it. The brush seems very jerky and slower to respond than in Splash. Selkii you mentioned some resizing options in Splurge...how do you access those?

Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Bankai, thanks for posting Color Thief; I've needed an app like that for a while!


I came across a fun app called Repix. Here's my first session. It allows you to paint specific effects to areas of your photo. I left the size large on this so you can see exactly what the app is doing. Also, I see the app increases image resolution. I started with 920 and Repix output 1045! It's very easy to use and the possibilities are endless.
The Top Left is the original:

Depending on the original size of the image, when you select "share," Splurge will give you other sizes to choose from. The larger the original, the more choices. The resolution is affected, but for Web posting, i don't find that an issue. I do find it annoying that I don't have any choices other than those given in the program.

This screenshot and the ferry photo were both reduced within Color Splurge.



I found the brush smooth with quick response. Easy to control. Working on an IPad2.

Cody - Thx for the demo. Repix was yet another app I had downloaded but hadn't gotten around to trying. Seems they saved the more useful brushes for IAPs. Still, I find it interesting.

BTW, love the original photo.

Has anyone used Repix yet?
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id597830453

It's a free app Photo app that comes with 11 "brushes" and if you tap the circle in the middle of the toolbar (crop, brightness, contrast, saturation, vibrance, temperature, and vignetting). You can download additional sets for $1.99/each, or buy the complete set for $4.99.

I just installed the free version to see how it is, but wanted to know if anyone else has already used it.


Strike that -- just saw Cody's post above  :)

Downloaded in last half hour LongExpo - Tripod-free Long Exposure and Slow Shutter Speed by EyeTap Soft. Read reviews, did a quick daytime shot and looks interesting for low light situations and motion shots when I don't have my DSLR with me. It takes several frames and combines them into one. There is a slider so you can chose which frame is dominant in the final product. Also can sharpen one area and blur another using finger or stylus.

Mentioning it as it is a limited time free app - usually 99˘.

Opposite problem here. Slow Camera Shutter... is still 99˘. I had the free version, but prefer Long-Expo because of better pics and it allows selective blurring and sharpening.

Printic "The best way to Print & Share your pictures"

I just read about this one on PetaPixel (my favorite photography blog) and am downloading and trying it now.



Order prints from your phone.
Printed on a high-quality 3 x 4" paper.
You can add a message to the back.
Send to multiple recipients.
$.99 (or Ł0,79) each print, 3 print minimum.
50% off the first order (woot!)

In fact, with that 50% discount, I'm going to print out a bunch with my website on the back. I'm going to Wondercon next weekend and hopefully I can have a few to hand out.
