TiltShift Generator

Tiltshift Generator is an application designed to lend an artistic quality to miniature  objects in pictures.

In order to understand the application you need to have a clear understanding of tilt-shift photography. The concept has grown out of the basic principle of tilting (or rotating) the lens while shifting (or horizontally moving) the lens. This process creates a very distinct blur in the periphery of the photograph whilst keeping the object of the shot in very sharp focus.

For installation and operation on a PC or tablet you will first need to install Adobe AIR. The original format iPhone App doesn’t require any additional software and will run directly on installation.

The software is very straightforward to use and, for a keen photographer, it saves on the need to buy expensive lenses that are required to generate this sort of effect in pictures. There is some debate in the artistic community as to the relative quality achieved by the app when compared with photographs that have been taken with tilt-shift lenses by skilled cameramen. For the uninitiated, however, it is very difficult to tell whether a photograph has been adapted by the app, or snapped by a professional.

The software allows you to adapt pictures in a linear and radial perspective. Linear adjustments are made between parallel lines, while radial effects can be added within a circle inside the image. For the best results with an image the subject of the picture should be not be in the same plane as its surroundings.

The software also allows you to adjust elements of the image including; Colour, Saturation, Contrast, Brightness and Vignette (which allows you to adjust the corners of the image).

This is a fun piece of software and can be used to create a brilliant effect on images, if you know what you are doing. For a photographer who doesn’t want to splash out on expensive kit this an excellent way of making the image that you want quickly and simply.

How to run iPad apps on your computer? With iPadian.

Since the dawn of the PC, emulating has been always considered a useful process, that has its own advantages in terms of portability on different systems. Most relevant examples would be the Amiga and Commodore 8 bit apps that have been emulated to run on newer 16 bit systems. Even console games from Nintendo, Sega, and Atari have been emulated to run on a computer with Windows operating system. But what about running iPad apps on your desktop?

The only solution at the moment is iPadian, a free Adobe AIR open source app that can emulate the iPad environment and gives you access to some iPad native apps. iPadian needs no installation process, just extract the archive wherever you want and run it (it requires Adobe AIR to be installed). You will get an overlay iPad desktop with access to some native apps: iNote, iChat, Instagram, Keynote, etc.

Despite the full screen view you will not lose contact with your original desktop. The taskbar can be accessed at anytime. There is also a huge offer to online services, from the popular Facebook social network and YouTube to epubBooks, Google and Bing. If you own accounts from any of these services, iPadian can log you in automatically in case you are already logged through your computer, keeping you up to date with all the activity.

Being an open source program, iPadian has no access to the native Apps Store service. The so-called store is just an easier way to get to online free apps that are similar to the popular present in the original tablet. For example the Games icon is just a link to the Scumlabs online games service and the Radio icon sends you directly to The Radio.com service.

Unfortunately iPadian features no touch-screen support nor mouse gestures. At the moment you are restricted to interact with its interface by point-and-click with the mouse. Despite its drawbacks, iPadian is worth a look, especially because of its unique nature of bringing a sense of iPad into our desktops.
