In case you’re not familiar, Trey Ratcliff is a very talented, prolific (and young!) photographer who is perhaps best known for his HDR photography. In fact, Rey recently posted about Trey and his HDR work on 2 Guys Photo.
I just learned that Trey Ratcliff’s popular photo-taking and editing app 100 Cameras in 1 is available for the iPhone for free for a limited time, and I thought I’d pass this along to the iPhoneographers in our audience.
The app’s claim to fame is that it provides 100 different filtering effects for photos you either take with the app or that you’ve taken previously. I’ve only been using it for a short time, but the reality is there are an infinite number of effects due to the app’s ability to combine filters. So far, my experience has been that most of the filters provide for color changes, or overlays or abstract effects. This is not where you’d turn to do traditional photo editing tasks, such as adjusting brightness or contrast, straightening or sharpening. Those duties are better handled by the likes of Adobe’s PS Express or Photogene, two very capable iPhone editing apps. But to satisfy your creative desires, this could be the ticket.
Linked to the image below is a YouTube video on 100 Cameras in 1, where you’ll get a better sense of it’s abilities. And as an added bonus, you get to meet Trey himself.
Let us know if you try the app and what you think. If there’s interest, we’ll prepare a more thorough review with our thoughts and some examples. Posted by Ed
I downloaded the app last night & it is SO cool, easy to use & super creative, although it’s only free for the iphone. If you want it for your iPad, it’s $3.99 – a terrific deal for all the fun you’re buying! Thanks for the great tip!
