[prMac.com] San Diego, California - The photo app development team at Pixite LLC, in partnership with award-winning creative technologist Ben Guerrette, is excited to announce the release of Tangent version 1.1. Previously only on the iPhone, Tangent allows anyone to easily transform their photos into one-of-a-kind works of art, a skill set once reserved for graphic artists, now on both the iPhone and iPad.
The latest update also adds 13 new styles, which are templates that professionally combine various shapes, fills, and blends, to the previously available 15. With a single tap, users can instantly enhance any photo by applying styles to their photos and further refine their work by adjusting the shape, fill, and blend if they choose. For those who want to see what is possible with Tangent, they can browse artwork, or "tangents", others have created in the newly added section called Inspirations.
Designed with a simple-to-navigate interface, Tangent allows users to transform their images into totally unique art forms using a creative toolbox of frames, patterns, fills and vectors, as well as the ability to apply and selectively blend colors with ease. Inspired by the shapes of the world around us, the geometric forms are completely scalable, empowering the artist to drag, zoom and rotate at will using simple finger swipes and pinches. And now with Tangent on the iPad, users can work on a larger screen to further perfect their artwork.
Fully integrated with popular social media channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, Tangent's users can either opt to share their creations seamlessly with just a tap or "Retangent," a feature that allows the user to save their creation and continue adding more layers to their design. This unique feature alone means that the creative possibilities for Tangent are truly limitless.
"The goal in creating Tangent was to provide an intuitive platform for people to create inspiring images through mobile artistry," says Tangent's creator and lead developer Ben Guerrette. "There's an inherent beauty in the simplicity of the interface, which gives users of every level the capability to creatively approach and reimagine photos with endless possibilities. My excitement, both as an artist and a developer, is seeing the astonishing work conceived using Tangent as a tool for creative expression."
Some of Tangent's creative tools include:
* 28 easy-to-use, fully customizable styles
* 39 versatile shapes (11 out of the box)
* 43 background fills (11 out of the box)
* 350 stunning combinations of blends and colors
