100 Cameras in One for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad
- A completed photo, ready to go to Instagram
My first effort with 100 Cameras. When I posted it to Instagram, a follower immediately responded with "Steve, that's beautiful." The app can make good pictures into evocative photos.
- Opening Credits on the iPhone app
- Sharing options
As you can see, there is a long list of sharing options. I chose to log into most of them right off the bat.
- The Main Menu
This easy-to-understand screen gives you a bunch of choices to explore.
- Previews of effects
Here you're seeing a photo taken with my iPhone 4 with just a handful of the 100 effects in the app applied to them.
- Original Image
Here's an original image of a magnolia flower that I took a few weeks ago.
- Browse effects
Now I can browse the different effects by scrolling down and swiping sideways.
- More effects
- Grouping effects by mood
This is a great way to find an effect that fits your mood.
- First effect applied
This effect is reminiscent of light filtering through a wooden bridge above you...
- Add another effect
100 Cameras lets you know that once you've retouched a photo with an effect, you can still layer on more effects.
These "Fingertips" show up when you first start using the app, providing guidance on how to use the app.
- Second effect applied
- Sharing options
- Send to Instagram...
actually displays this list of compatible iPhone apps that I have installed. I can choose to send my photo to any of these apps.
- iPad Version
The iPad version of 100 Cameras is different in design, but similar in operation.
- The controls and "triple nipple"
Ratcliff refers to the three dots on the grabber at the bottom of the screen as the "triple nipple." You can hide the tools altogether, bring up a few, or display them all (as seen here).
- iPad overview
- Scrolling list of visual effects
You can either swipe your photo and see the different effects applied to it, or pop up this small scrolling list.
- Crash and Burn!
While your iPad may NOT crash when opening large files, the app does provide a warning.
- Sharing menu on the iPad app
- Open In...
Send to "Instapaper" (should be Instagram, and it's being fixed) takes you to this scrolling list of compatible apps.
- More apps
- A few artifacts
Note the yellow and pink squares in the bright light at lower right? Those shouldn't be there. Adjusting the "yin" got rid of those artifacts.
