iPhone Friday – Can You Spot The Difference?

I still had some images on my iPhone from my visit to the University of Western Ontario last week so I thought I’d share one more. I really love trying new apps but I still have my work horse apps that gets used all the time.

Here’s the image straight out my iPhone taken with Camera+

When I process an iPhone shot it always goes through Snapseed first for adjustments (when needed) in contrast, brightness, ambiance or saturation. I then also adjust sharpness and/or structure. I may stop there with Snapseed or try some of their different presets. My next favorite app is PhotoToaster. I just love the presets in this app but more than that the individual adjustment sliders give you fantastic control over the image. You can adjust exposure; temperature; lighten shadows; tint; blacks and so much more.

This image was processed with both Snapseed and PhotoToaster as described above. I did use a new app I just downloaded called Over. Over allows you to add text and artwork to your photos. Can I tell you how I found out about it??  You know those little free app cards you can pick up at Starbucks? Well last week Over was on the card. Yup…don’t overlook those, you never know what little gems you might find.

iPhone Friday – Back to Western

TGIF…wow has it been a hectic week…but good hectic. The week started with my son, Sam’s prom on Monday and then his high school graduation on Wednesday evening with lots of activity in between which explains why I haven’t kept to my usual posting schedule this week. On Thursday Sam and I headed back to the University of Western Ontario for his Academic orientation. While he was busy choosing courses I took the opportunity to walk around and take some pictures of this beautiful campus.  I’ll be back there often come the fall so I have a feeling you’ll be seeing more of Western 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone.

iPhone Friday – A Visit to Western

Yesterday my husband and I and our oldest son took a drive to London, Ontario to do a tour of the University of Western Ontario. This is one of the universities that my son has been accepted too (we’re very proud of him) and one of his top choices. Western is one of the top universities in Canada and the campus is just beautiful. Unfortunately it was still grey and cold yesterday but I was able to grab a few iPhone shots as we moved from building to building.

Have a great long weekend everyone and Happy Easter to those that celebrate.
