Reviews: WordFoto App


We all now have these powerful phones and I must admit, they take great pics and can do amazing things. I am always curious about photo apps and found one super cool one the other day! It just came out and is called WordFoto. It can take your pics and add words and create super cool art! In playing with it for a day or so…I have noticed that close up shots work best. Some feature highlights:
- Fast and fully automated word filling algorithm.
- Manual word filling fine tune parameters.
- Inspect detail in zoomable preview.
- Eight unique preset styles.
- User defined custom styles with lots of parameters.
- Import images from photo album or camera.
- Crop editor.
- Manage and create your own word sets.
- Resulting word images are full resolution.
- Save, email or share on Facebook.
- Save original and cropped original.
If you are creative…a must buy. Cost is $1.99. Available now in iTunes and Andriod will be TBD. WordFoto gets 8 out of 10 from me!

Las Vegas, Nevada – New York NY Hotel

Sometimes what you happen to photograph in Vegas, does not stay photographed in Vegas!  …It pops up on the interweb!  LOL  Here is New York New York Hotel in the blue hour.  I love this hotel…a perfect subject to photograph! That roller coaster has given me vertigo a few times!  The sad effect of getting old.  Have a great weekend!

Las Vegas, NV – New York NY Hotel (HDR)

Las Vegas.  I love this place and look forward to visiting whenever possible.   I wish I had conventions there for my work, but unfortunately, we do not.  We try to fly out for a day or so every summer.  I really enjoy just walking around to see the sights and the night lights. Typically during my visits I only have a little time to take photographs….and here is one from this past year.  Something I rarely do…it is a single raw file processed into HDR.  I was playing around today with some old pics and decided to give this one a try.  I liked the HDR…but it needed a little pop.  As I am a fan of selective color…I decided to give it a try! Hope you enjoy this shot!
