While browsing the App Store, I found a new photography app called Swankolab! It's from the same makers as Hipstamatic but this app uses photos in the gallery to create the same kind of look as the Hipstamatic camera! How cool is that! While Hipstamatic allows you to take photos, the Swankolab enables you to play in the darkroom and mix chemicals to achieve a certain look to your photos! Not surprising, I simply revelled in it! The app allows you to save the different formulae you created and even to name them! Here's some samples of the same photo created using different chemical mix:
I made use of a photo taken on a Hipstamatic to re-create three different looks. Here's another one taken with the camera on iPhone:
Again mixing different chemical gave me two different looks to the same picture.
Unfortunately, the black and white photos still have a bluish tint. Not sure if this is due to the upgrade of iOS4. Both Hipstamatic and Swankolab photos are affected. Hopefully it will be resolved soon otherwise I won't be using creating any black & white photos! App cost £1.19 and you can subscribed for another £1.19 to get more chemicals and a lifelong addition of new chemicals when it comes out! One of my most played apps at the moment! TTFN!
