[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - Mobilaga today is pleased to announce Dude, your car! 2.0 for iOS, an update to their popular Entertainment app where users can surprise friends by sending them a photo of their friend's car with broken glass, dents, scratches, and more. For pranksters everywhere, the app allows the user to shoot a new photo or use an existing photo, outline an area to be altered, and then apply realistic-looking damage to one or more areas. The finished quality is highly convincing and photos can be shared by Facebook or email. With April Fool's day near, the app offers more than 100 kinds of damage.
* Take pictures or use existing pictures from the Photo Album or Camera Roll
* Apply one or all of the following damage types: Dents, Scratches, Broken Glass, Wheel Boot (Clamp), Fire or Smoke
* Adjust the size, shape, orientation, contrast, brightness, and opacity of the selected damage type
* Save the edited image to your album or email it
Extremely easy to use, Dude, your car! offers guidance at every step. After selecting or shooting a photo, the user outlines the area to which they want to apply the damage. The app offers six categories of damages, with a variety of images to choose from in each category: Scratches (8), Broken Glass (12), Dents (30), Tire Boot/Clamp (45), Fire (12), and Custom (pre-existing photo). The large damage library makes it easy to select just the right effect to suit the photo and the vehicle.
Once the effect is applied, users can scale or move it to perfectly fit the vehicle. In step 4, users have an opportunity to adjust the superimposed damage image so that it blends realistically into the original photo. The app provides continuously variable control over contrast, brightness, rotation, transparency, and erasure. Once adjusted, the damage looks absolutely real, and even an expert would have difficulty spotting the image processing that has occurred.
Directions for use:
Step 1. Select/take a picture of the car you plan on using
Step 2. Draw an outline in an area where you wish to apply the damage
Step 3. Apply a damage type (e.g. dent, scratch, broken glass)
Step 4. Adjust the damage type by using the available tools
Step 5. Repeat steps 2-4 if you are applying more than one damage type
Step 6. Take a moment to enjoy the masterpiece you have created
Step 7. Save or email the picture
The last step in creating the photo, number 5, lets the user add additional damage, save their final photo, or share it via built-in email and Facebook connectivity. In addition to the damage types, users can now add firemen and fire trucks to their pictures to make the prank even more interesting. Especially popular in Europe, Dude, your car! is the perfect, hi-tech, practical joke all year round.
