TiltShift Generator [iPhone] – Preview

TiltShift Generator is a new iPhone photo effector application by Takayuki Fukatsu. Currently in development and available in the AppStore soon, TiltShift Generator builds on Takayuki’s previous iPhone apps (ToyCamera, QuadCamera) to deliver something quite unique. For those unfamiliar with the TiltShift term: the method refers to the use of camera by tilting the lens relative to the image plane and using a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field (wikipedia).

TiltShift Generator Air app is already available and the upcoming iPhone version brings a wonderful set of features to produce some truly amazing photo effects on the go. We have been sent a beta version to have a play, and have to say that this may be the best iPhone photo app Takayuki has made to date.

When you launch the app you are welcomed with the screen to choose either a photo from your album or take a new photo. Once you have loaded the pic you can switch between different modes including ability to change circle or strip blur effect (similar to tiltshift), modify colour by adjusting saturation, brightness or contrast, and third apply vignetting effect to your photo (dark shadows around the edges). Adjusting levels is done via sliders which provides an instant number feedback of how much effect your are applying. As you would expect, save option is the last button which processes effect you have selected  and saves the photo to your library. Settings are always remebered so if you quit the app and open it again taking a new photo, the same effects will be applied at start and you can change them as you like.

TiltShift Generator also includes full Twitter integration. Where you expect this to be a “upload to photo service, provide a short url and open preferred twitter client”, TiltShiftGen allows you to post to twitter straight from the app. This is achieved with the help of Takuma Mori and his open source Twitter client NatsuLion, providing a seamless integration so you are able to enter the tweet text and both the text and your photo (via twitgoo.com) are posted to twitter. This option is available from “Save” menu where you can also send your pictures by mail (once again fully integrated into the app).

TiltShift Generator for the iPhone brings a set of features that allow you to create and share amazing photos quickly and easily. The app’s icon is an icing on cake. Slick, clean, obviously inspired by the Cemara.app icon but suggesting a whole new set of features. Full featured, point, shoot and share iPhone app, TiltShift Generator will be an absolute must when released. Now available!

    His apps are getting better and better. I'd be interested in seeing a side-by-side review of this app (TiltShift Generator) and TiltShift (http://www.creativeapplications.net/iphone/tilt…)

  • http://frgm.net/ Bean

    QuadCamera and ToyCamera are two of my most used apps. (They're both in my dock, instead of things like Phone or SMS.) I'm not sure this one will get quite as much use, but I've definitely been looking forward to playing with it.
