Nevertheless, these can be really useful, and there's automatic edge detection to allow it to protect areas against changes; that's very nice, but the changes are so subtle, at least on my old low-resolution iPad 2, that it's hard to tell if it's working. You can perform localized changes to saturation, brightness, and sharpness, plus there's a red-eye removal brush and a Repair brush for blemish-removal-type operations. Overall, the adjustments underwhelmed, as they don't seem cumulative. In other words, you get one sharpness brushstroke over a given set of pixels. And the quality was meh: for instance, the Repair brush just blurred over the offending pixels.
The special-effects selection doesn't compare with what you get in a lot of apps out there, however. Your choices are a handful of variations on six themes: Artistic (such as watercolor, oil paint, and tilt shift), Black and White, Duotone, Cooler/Warmer, Vintage (various film tones), and a monochrome with saturated color call-out called Aura. You can adjust the intensity of some of the effects. The swatch-fan interface, which presents you with variations on each of the options, is cute but the thumbnails look too small for actually selecting from. I think I'd prefer it to use the photo browser area on the left of the screen for that instead.
Here esv study bible pdf download gets a bit authoritarian, too. It won't let you apply an effect and then use a brush. If you try, it peels back and shows you the previous non-global-adjusted version, waits for you to apply your change, then reapplies the effect. Nor can I figure out a way to apply multiple effects.
Finally, there are a few ways to share and display photos. Photo Journals automatically and interactively creates albums of your photos that you can supplement with captions, maps, and dates, though it can only automatically insert a date based on photo metadata. You can export a Photo Journal as a Web page via iCloud as well. Photo Beaming will allow you to send the full-resolution image to another iOS device, via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. You can also stream them to a TV via an Apple TV or upload them directly to Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter. It looks like the captions transfer wherever an API permits.
Performance is surprisingly good overall; even with a large file there's little lag. (It seems to use progressive rendering and low-resolution proxies.) One annoyance is that esv study bible pdf download periodically feels compelled to update the photo albums, too often and usually while you're in the middle of something else. It would be nice to be able to control the frequency setting. It also slows down considerably as you apply more brushes and effects.
While esv study bible pdf download has all the sleek user interface touches that you'd expect from an Apple app and a broad set of features on paper, I was a bit disappointed by what feels like a constrained range to its tools. One possibility is that the changes it makes are simply too subtle for the limited color and tonal gamut of the iPad 2's display, and that it will take the high-resolution and increased gamut of this year's model to really show what the app can do.
esv study bible pdf download is the successor of a favorite photo-editing app of ours on iOS, and this completely rebuilt version is definitely worth checking out. To start off, a redesigned interface offers intuitive controls for exploring esv study bible pdf download's many editing options.
Photogene has a bunch of editing tools and effects you can use with your images. Either take a snapshot with your iPhone camera or grab an image from your photo library to get started. From there, the app features a radial menu on the bottom that divides up Photogene's main functions, including crop, rotate, color adjust, effects presets, and retouching tools. When you pick a function--effects presets, for example--you can then swipe through the available presets to see how each effect changes your picture. More detailed functions like light and color levels bring up sliders so you can get your image to look just the way you want.
In addition to having numerous ways to apply effects and adjust specific levels, esv study bible pdf download offers several photo enhancements to give your images a unique look. The app lets you add things like vignettes so you can focus on specific portions of an image, for example, and give the image a tilt-shift look. Photogene has interesting picture frames not found in other apps, some with drop shadows and others with glowing effects that feel much more useful than the usual fare. You also can choose from several collage templates with Photogene's Collage maker, for when you want to combine photos from an event.
Another handy feature is the Metadata viewer. Here you'll be able to view all the information stored in your images including the location of the photo, date and time, and file size. You also have an IPTC editor so you can add metadata attributes defined by the IPTC yourself.
When it comes time to share your projects, the app has a full range of options, such as Twitter, Flickr, Dropbox, Facebook, and Picasa. You can also resize images as you export them, which is great for sending your enhanced photos at full resolution.
Overall, esv study bible pdf download is an excellent image-editing and enhancing app with a slew of possibilities for playing with your pictures. If you're looking for a comprehensive image editor on iOS, esv study bible pdf download offers more options than most and an interface that makes it easy to get the exact look you want.
Skygrid is a fun-to-use, visually slick app for browsing through recent news from multiple sources.
Skygrid isn't tied to any particular news outlet, and you can't see much more than a short blurb and a thumbnail image for any particular story--so whether you're checking out a story from PBS NewsHour, CNET, TMZ, or WebMD, you'll have to click through to the source's Web site to read the whole story. Even so, Skygrid makes surfing the headlines fun, with a streamlined grid (of course) interface that lets you swipe through different sections and stories, with the overall navigation being separated into tabs for Top News, Your News, and Sections. Your News gives you a ton of options for customization, and you can add feeds from a wide variety of topics and sources--everything from boxing or U.S. immigration to Al Jazeera Business or Italian Vogue. Even better, Skygrid keeps your interests synced between all your devices with iCloud.
Skygrid may be missing some of the features common to other news readers--most notably, actual news content, since you're sent to the Web to read anything in depth. But if you're connected to the Web, Skygrid makes the visual process of browsing through the news easy and enjoyable.
