Review: Tiltshift Generator (iOS)

This is not a game review but rather an app review for something that I think anyone who takes a lot of photos with their iPhone should get. The app is by Art and Mobile and is called Tiltshift Generator. The main purpose of the app is to create tiltshifting effects with your photographs making them look like miniature toy models. That is the main function of this app, but its not all you can use it for.

I’ve been using Tiltshift Generator since it was first created as an Adobe Air app. Sure the main point of the app was to make tiltshifting effects but I discovered that it was actually a very flexible app that allowed you to create many different types of effects, mainly it was possible to create Lomo style images by adjusting a few of the sliders and adjusting some of the values. The iPhone app is no different. Images imported into Tiltshift Generator were easy to manipulate and processed fairly quickly. The menus are very easy to navigate and you can create a very stylized image in just mere minutes. You can control values like saturation, contrast, amount of radial blur, and brightness. You can even add vignetting for that vintage photo look.

Tiltshift Generator allows you to export directly to two popular social networks which are Twitter and Facebook so that’s a huge plus. You can also save processed images to your camera roll so you can transfer them later to your computer for archiving or further editing.

Tiltshift Generator is prices at $1.99 on the App Store which is a pretty reasonable price for an app of this nature. If you are still not convinced that this is an app that you absolutely need to have, there is a FREE version of this app that you can download. It has all the same functions as the paid app but the export resolution is limited to a much smaller size and not as full resolution. To find the free version, just do a search in the App Store for Tiltshift Generator and both the free and paid app should show up. I do highly recommend that you should at least try the free version of the app as like I said, it does EVERYTHING the paid app does except for high resolution exports.

Rating: 5/5
