Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Today we look at page 2 of my iPad. This is one of my favorite pages as it contains the artistic apps. Many of them do basically the same thing, create art, but just in different and unique ways. Most of these Apps you must purchase, but a few are free, and they are all worth the purchase price asked.

Image of some iPad AppsToday we look at page 2 of my iPad. This is one of my favorite pages as it contains the artistic apps. Many of them do basically the same thing, create art, but just in different and unique ways. Most of these Apps you must purchase, but a few are free, and they are all worth the purchase price asked.

Granimator – This novel art creation App helps to create beautiful, colorful background images. It comes packaged with objects that you can move around, change color, alter size and layout in creative ways! Really fun, with sound effects too!

iFontMaker – This is the iPad’s answer to creating your own fonts. It does it in a user friendly, touch sensitive way and I highly recommend this App for typographists everywhere! Very untuitive and easy to use.

ColorSplash – You have a color image and you want only part of the image to remain in color while the rest becomes black and white. Kind of like the old art of hand coloring photographs. My uncle used to use colored pencils to color in only parts of old photos. It adds focus and beauty to any photo. This App is the one for you to complete this task. Really easy to use and really addicting.

TypeDrawing – One of my favorite Apps. You can type in any sentence, word or phrase and alter the font. Then use that sentence to create drawings with words. Very fun and typedrawing is all of the rage in the art world currently. I use it to complement other images created in other Apps.

Face Melter – An App like the old computer program named “Goo”. You can take a portrait and move the person’s face around like it was silly putty. Really fun and you get to create some really cool effects.

Qvik Sketch – This App is kind of like a Photoshop filter  only easier to use. You can take a photo and give it multiple effects rendering the image back in a new and creative light. Make a photo into a watercolor or pencil drawing etc…

ArtStudio – This is a really nice image creation tool for the iPad. Lots of colors, brushes and special effects to play with on your iPad.

ArtistsTouch – Another good image creation tool for the iPad. Worth it if you can get it for free. Otherwise you might pass for something better.

Pixhop – A nice and easy to use photo editing, image creation tool. Use it to alter photos in your photo albums, making them better, adjusting color, saturation, hue or other things that Photoshop would normally do. But like most iPad Apps, this is going to replace Adobe’s Photoshop in no time flat.

Scribeit – Want to take an image and add artistic text to the image. Maybe you created a font of your own on the App above and want to add text with that font to an image making a final poster image. This is the App for you then. Easy to use and fun to use too!

Masque Lite – The free version of the App called Masque. I don’t think I would pay for this App but its good in theory. Do image masques scare you? Then this App may just be the thing for you to conquer masques once and for all! Its ok, but I will probably be removing it as it is pretty limited in its ability. Photoshop beats this App.

Photo Wall – This App allows you to create compilations of photos in creative ways. I think it would be good to use to create web banners, magazine covers etc… Pretty good App and I would recommend it.

Pano – When I first downloaded this App there were not many contenders that could help create photo panoramas. Now there are lots and this App is probably old technology in a few short months. I would still recommend it to get you used to creating landscape panoramas but for sure better used on your iPhone.

ColorMagicHD – Another App that allows you to color in certain parts of black and white photos. Its ok.

Diptic – A fun program to create compilations of photos into a spread. Good for magazine layout creation, poster or ad work. I recommend it as it shows the versatality of the iPad in a graphics layout environment.

Inspire Pro – I recently downloaded this App and still am getting used to it. Its an image creation tool and seems to be fairly user friendly. It has good reviews online and I would second those reviews. I am not sure it if will become my main image creation tool, but its fun and easy to use.

iStalin – Fun little App that allows you to create Communist type posters. Lots of options to edit images. But still needs more work. A fun free App to download and play!

app-lab – Not sure why this App got stuck on this page, but its here none the less. Basically an educational tool to teach potential App creaters how to build their Apps. Out of place, interesting but probably due for delete soon.

Fluid FX – Like Face Melter, only not as good. You can play with different dynamics of an image. Paint in lava for instance, but it does not let you easily save your work, and it seems to be missing some core components that other like minded Apps have already captured.
