Stretcho Photo

Of course there are quite a few apps that allow panoramic images to be shot and merged together - it seems that every week my iPhone can do more and more crazy tasks.
It was a lovely day by the harbour so I used Panoramatic to experiment with this stitch-up shot. The app gives a ghost-frame of each shot taken so you can line up the next shot, plus some options when it comes to the stitching. This was a quick test, and while not perfect, it ain't bad for a phone.

Scrambled Pixels

Seems I had a graphics processor meltdown in my laptop - this is NOT what my screen should have looked like (and I haven't used an image-changing iPhone app).
I discovered that this was due to fault with a batch of processors that ended up in my model MacBook Pro so the motherboard was replaced promptly with no loss of data and all for free. Happy ending to what could have been a scary and expensive story.

Brewing an image

I'm not quite sure what to make of this photo app. It's called Percolator and will add a variable pop-art effect to an image, after it goes through a 'brewing' process. Most of the shots I've tried it on just look weird!

Kiwi Cuisine

Looking through my 'Hipstamatic' album on the iPhone, I came across this image that I'd shot a while ago. It was captured on a clear, but cold Friday evening while heading for the dining salvation of our local 'greasy' shop.

Which witch?

Some late afternoon/early spring lighting helps to give a bit of life to these cones. There has been a lot of road work being done in the neighbourhood lately.
Processed this shot thru' Camera+ once again.

Free now

I guess if you were brave or desperate you could actually use this charming piece of porcelain and timber. I suspect that the owner of it would rather that you took it home to use it, which is why it wasn't chucked in the skip with the rest of the building debris.
So many apps include the ability to give a pseudo Polaroid frame to images along with all their other functions, but with the Polarize app, that's all it does (and add some text if you'd like).
