“Prisma transforms your photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists:  Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art.” You’ve watch the video and read the little bio about the app Prisma. So you’re wondering how does it all work, well I’ll give you the step by step and detailed information about the app. Before you start using this app, make sure you’re online. I recommend using WiFi because I don’t know if this app will eat up your data. You can turn off the watermark without paying for it. I like to go through my camera roll rather than take a photo. The app is set up in square format only. You can crop your photo to fit in the square. I tried pinching in and you’re stuck in square format only. Process doesn’t take long and my images are…

Combo Apps/The Mobile Lens Dilemma

This blog post are for the people who are unsure about what mobile lenses to buy. The biggest problem with a lot of these mobile lenses is they aren’t made to last and have thier limitations. It doesn’t matter what system you invest in because smartphones are constantly changing their designs to get people to buy the latest and greatest smartphone. In my experience with mobile lenses I will give three type of people who buy mobile lenses. The misconceptions behind the lenses and toward the end of the blog post. I will give my opinion on what lenses I feel are a great buy and companies I trust the most. The companies will be linked to their sites and all you have to do is click on the company’s name. Mobile Lens Buyer Type 1: These are the people who will buy anything with a name brand attached to the lenses. Money is no object to these people. They are willing to throw away their money…

Review of MCM Comic Con Midlands 2016

  Sharing snippets of feedback about this annual, one day event. Midlands Comic Con as with the remaining four MCM Expo shows namely Birmingham, London, Scotland and Manchester, is all about popular culture from Movies & TV showcasing and promoting to Manga and Cosplay. Venue: International Centre, Telford, Shropshire. Imagining, mainly due to the location and venue capacity, that this is the most pared back version of the five, so it fell a little short on the ‘must see’ happenings compared to the buzz and interest of shows elsewhere. It was well attended nonetheless, and, judging by the elaborate Cosplay seen, Anime and Star Wars are the main themes that people really came to experience and personally integrate with. These are consumer shows and are not geared for commercial buyers, and so exhibitor’s stands are allowed the majority of the floor space. Usually for retailers/dealers of clothing, posters, books and charms inspired by games, Japanese animation and general all round geekiness the selling happens online, so this is a real selling opportunity for them. Many …

Combo Apps/Cloth-Clip Pro 37mm Circular Polarizing Filter (CPL)

Originally posted on COMBO APPS: Mobile Extreme Editing:
The first review of the year so I’ll kick it off with the DCkina Cloth-Clip Pro 37mm Circular Polarizer (CPL). It seems to work better than the smaller mobile circular polarizer filters out there. I like the cloth clip very much which makes it universal for just about any mobile device on the market. I made a little video with this 37mm CPL with my iPod Touch 6. You will see a huge difference in the water but the clouds and sky were not working so well with this filter. It’s been kind of overcast type of day. Overall I prefer this filter over the smaller mobile filters because the results are a little better. The CPL with cloth-clip sells for $14.34 and without the cloth-clip $12.55. This is a great filter to have to cut glare out when taking photos or making movies. If you have any questions about this blog post, please leave comments. Have a great day and see you soon !!!
