iPhone App: TiltShift Generator
= 4 stars
Photography app that creates “tilt shift” photos, where a life-sized location or subject ends up looking like a tiny, miniature model.
- Intuitive UI: a row of icons along the bottom of the screen, several sliders, and lots of room to see the results on your photograph.
- Several options to tweak your photo: a blur filter where you can adjust the location, diameter, and amount of blur, a color area to adjust saturation, brightness, and contrast, and vignetting adds some shadow around the edges of your photograph.
- Options to use photos from your existing camera roll or take a photo within the app. Once done, you can save the photo to your camera roll or export it to email or Twitter.
- Results vary widely and don’t automatically look miniaturized. You still have to have an eye for composition and appropriate subject matter. Without much care, photos will merely end up looking “blurry.”
Although the results don’t always end up looking like an expertly-done “tilt shift” photo, I still recommend this app as yet another, welcome cool effects generator for photos taken with the iPhone. The iPhone camera needs all the help it can get and this app provides some.
