Repix Update!

A couple of weeks ago I went to a Dr. Sketchy NNJ drawing session at the Art Garage in Montclair, New Jersey. Regina Stargazer took some wonderful poses and had two beautiful Belly Dancer costumes. I was able to take some pictures with my iPad at the session and decided to use the newly updated Repix app to modify them.

The neat thing about the Repix app is that you can “draw” on the various filters, as opposed to apps where the filter is applied to the entire image. You have more control over where and how much of the filter is on the image. There are different effects, such as Magic Dust, Daubs, Drips and Scratches. There are also a variety of frames and filters to further modify the photo.

You can add some very interesting textures to your photos with this app. But remember, the filters are a little like adding spices to foods. A little bit goes a long way and you don’t want to overpower the image with too much of a good thing.
