Nature Images HD Makes Your iPad Even More Beautiful

April 3, 2010 in Photo and Video (E)

[] Sammamish, Washington - Juicy Bits today is pleased to announce the release of Nature Images HD 1.0 for the new iPad, an app that contains 105 high quality close-up wallpaper photos. With over 3 million downloads, these close-up images are already being used as wallpaper on computers everywhere. Nature Images HD includes 105 remastered, high-resolution photos that provide a perfect balance of color, contrast, and composition.

We've partnered with a photographer whose work is included in major operating systems and whose photos are among the most popular wallpaper images in the world. Only the best images have been selected, and each is carefully optimized for the iPad screen. Most wallpaper images are created to fit a single screen size and orientation. But because the iPad works well in both portrait and landscape orientations, many traditional images fall apart when they're automatically cropped.

For Nature Images HD, we went into the archives and started over with original, full-resolution, RAW files (like digital negatives) from the photographer. Along with new exposure, noise reduction, color, and contrast enhancements, each image has been cropped, sized, sharpened, and tested to ensure that the final composition works well in both orientations. All of the images have unique characteristics, so very little of this process could be automated, and labor-intensive manual adjustments were required to produce the highest quality results.

Last, each image is sized to take full advantage of every pixel on the iPad screen. As a result, no automatic resizing is necessary, and the quality of each image is maintained. Once an image is selected, it is easily saved to the Photo Album where it can be set as Wallpaper (instructions are included).
