As I mentioned in my post a couple of days ago, I’m currently experimenting with post processing images on the iPad after copying them over using the Apple Camera Connection Kit. The main app I was using was the highly recommended Snapseed, however I think I may have just had a play with something even better – PhotoForge2.
PhotoForge seems to exceed the tools available in Snapseed and also has the addition of easy to use layers. To give the layers a try I thought I’d use an image I took a couple of weeks ago of a dinosaur. The image was basically a snap shot but it doesn’t have a simple outline so thought it would give a layers tool a good challenge.
Here is a before and after selection of the edited image:
On close inspection, you can see that the layer mask wasn’t brilliant by any means but there are a couple of things that should be taken into account:
- The image was processed in roughly 20 minutes, from downloading the app to the final result.
- It’s been done on the iPads touch screen interface. To generate the layer mask, I was simply using my finger to stroke it in.
In my opinion, this app is showing great potential and is well worth investigating further. I’ll keep you posted on any further updates.
