App Review: Noiseware – Noise Reduction

App Review: Noiseware – noise Reduction   Have you ever wished your mobile photos could be cleaner? If so,  Noiseware could be the app for you. It takes your grainy photos and gives them a more proffesional quality by de noising them. I put the app through its paces, by intentionally adding grain to an image, with the app PicFX, and then running it through Noiseware. Here’s what happened. . Before . After . The results are pretty astounding. And what’s great is, the app is really easy to use. simply upload an image and it works instantly, without the user having to do anything! There are a few different modes to choose from, which basically just vary the strength of the effect. The Night Shot feature will add a little brightness to really bring out the dark spots of an image. There’s also a custom feature, where the user can adjust the filter value and exposure. Right now Noiseware is only available for iPhone and iPad.   @kerry_fin  ...

Get excited, people.. Matter App is coming!

Get excited, people.. Matter App is coming!. Review by: @kerry_fin . . . . Ben Guerette and his team at Pixite have always been at the forefront when it comes to making ground breaking apps. . From the artful loveliness of Decosketch to the image blending wizardry of Union and everything in between, they have given the mobile creative and graphic design community some invaluable tools. Their newest app Matter is no exception. In fact it’s a serious game changer. . Matter allows the user to place 3D, mirrored objects into their photos. These primitive inspired, geometric shapes (some designed by the wonderfully talented @_syamilonfire_) will reflect parts of the photo, and can be placed, via use of in app masking, to appear, protruding from an ocean scene or wedged into desert sand. . . A really lovely touch and something that I personally struggled to execute satisfactorily in my images before this app came about, is the shadow feature. You can add a shadow to the ground in front of the object, which gives a realistic quality that makes this app outstanding. . .. But it doesn’t end there. Something we’ve rarely (if ever) seen in photo editing apps is video. That’s right. The shapes can be animated so they move around, and, again, with the use of masking, you can have them weave in and out behind trees or even in the palm of your hand. I can foresee this changing the way we, as mobile creatives, use Instagram. Matter makes video feel like the next logical step in our artistic evolution. . Watch the video here ....
