I’ve been fascinated by the toy-like scenes created from photographs using the Tilt Shift technique for years. However, I’ve never really investigated it for working with digital photos on a conventional desktop or notebook. I noted the various Tilt Shift apps for the iPhone over the past year. But, the iPhone’s camera and small screen didn’t seem like the right platform for this either.
However, during lunch yesterday, I noticed a Tilt Shift app for the iPad that, combined with my recently purchased iPad Camera Connection Kit, might be what I’ve been waiting for. So, I purhcased this $2.99 app:
You can see one of my first tests here. The photo below is the original photo. The photo above was tweaked using the TiltShift Generator for iPad app. I used a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 (a 10 megapixel point-and-shoot compact camera) to take the photo. The photo was brought into the iPad from the camera’s SDHC card using the iPad Camera Connection Kit into the iPad’s photo album. I’m quite pleased with the results I’ve seen so far and feel my $2.99 was well spent.
