[prMac.com] Soda Springs, California - Daniel Wexler, the 2012 Technical Achievement Academy Award (C) winning founder of mobile developers, The 11ers, releases details of their next two apps, PaintedCamera and PhotoSpector that bring professional-quality image manipulation to the mobile app ecosystem, building on the success of their 100,000-user app, Glaze, which turns your photos into unique works of art.
PaintedCamera, a real-time app that turns your phone's camera into a master artist, applying the Glaze technique of transforming photos into unique works of art to a live camera! PhotoSpector, a brand new photo organization and editing tool, leveraging experience gained developing the AMPAS Technical Achievement Awarded Lighting tools for PDI/DreamWorks, provides an elegantly interface for organizing, editing and sharing photos tailored for professional photographers and iPhoneographers.
PhotoSpector replaces both the basic Photo application provided with your phone, augmented with advanced tools to inspect individual pixels, wipe between variations and edit your images. Groups of images can be manipulated and shared through smart folders that leverage search to easily find and edit groups of images based on dates, keywords, and other image attributes. Powerful search techniques enable management of huge image databases without the need for labor intensive manually created folders.
Working with professional photographers, The 11ers developed PhotoSpector to address the critical task of finding the 10 best photos from the 500 - 5000 taken during a shooting session. Quickly navigating and comparing similar images, and detailed inspection of focus and color settings provide the control needed to extract the best few images, adjust their color and crop prior to uploading them to your cloud repository. The elegant workflow works equally well for the amateur photographer working with a set of vacation photos before uploading them to Facebook, Flickr or Shutterfly for their friends.
"The ability to edit a group of photos, adjusting their color, metadata and cropping before uploading to my blog allows me to use my iPad as a light table that travels with me, eliminating the need to carry a laptop." - Juan Buhler, Pro Photo Blogger
"The paint processing in Glaze is nothing short of incredible." - Charlie Sorrel, Cult of Mac
PaintedCamera, a live, real-time camera version of Glaze, the successful photo filter with over 100,000 users, provides a new set of styles tailored specifically for use through the iPhone camera. Point your camera and get real-time glazed images that can be captured and shared to Facebook, Twitter, Email and saved to the gallery. Glaze is a 5-star rated app called out by top iPhoneographers as "the best painting effect program ever seen!" - The Angel Gabriella, Glaze iPhoneographer
