Cruising With Seattle Stickies

cruise1000

Seattle Stickies stickers for iMessage Version 1.2.2 was released today with support for French and Italian languages and the addition of three new cruise ship themed stickers. Three of the cruise lines sailing from Seattle to Alaska are featured in this update to the sticker pack with Holland America, Norwegian, and Princess ships presented as canvas art stickers. If you are taking a cruise to Alaska or just like cruise ships, owners of the Seattle Stickies sticker pack can now show their support for their favorite ships.

If you are not aware of what a Stickers App is here is a great explanation from iMore.com

Apple has made it possible for you to make your messages a lot more interesting with the help of apps and stickers in iMessages. You can use stickers as stand-alone images, or slap them right on top of someone else’s chat bubble (or sticker, or picture). Apps integrate information so you can, say, book a table at a restaurant or share movie times with others. Your friends can also change dates and times in some instances so everyone can collaborate together.

Canvas Art-Swipe for Transparency

IMG_1162

Just a quick tip about using the latest version of Canvas Art. One of the things that changed in this version is the way that the transparency (alpha) of the edges of the image is adjusted. The edge is what you see in the image above. It creates the charcoal sketch look and always starts out as black but users can adjust the transparency of this effect all the way to the point of making it invisible. In the past, a vertical slider appeared on the right side of the screen. In the 1.1.0 update that slider has been removed but you can still make the same adjustment by swiping up and down. The first few times the app is used with this update an animation indicating swiping is available appears when editing. After that I don’t think it is needed and does not appear anymore. I actually hope no one needs to read this post to figure out how to use the app but just in case, here it is. Just remember that swiping up and down is available.

You can download your very own copy of the app at the link below. It truly does cost less than a cup of coffee and does not have any up-sells or ads.

Canvas Art Moving Forward

IMG_0154

As sales of the art creation app Canvas Art climb version 1.1.0 was released this morning. The update includes improvements and bug fixes when editing very large images but far more important this new version brings in support for some foreign languages. Many applications are created in English only because it is the default language and the majority of sales come from english speaking regions. However, foreign users should not be ignored. So today I am kicking off with support for Spanish, French, and Italian languages and support for many more in the coming months.

Canvas Art is an iOS application that allows users to create art ranging from a sketch or line art style, water-color type look to a crisp canvas painting with just a couple of easy steps. Canvas Art is both a standalone application that allows camera use, importing, and exporting images from and to numerous sources and is also a Photos Editing Extension for the native Apple Photos application. Users are able to choose a canvas, tan, white, or gray, and set the intensity of fill color on the canvas with looks ranging from washed out to photo like. After that the special charcoal outline effect is added and users have a wide range of intensities to work from. The finished product looks like canvas painting or charcoal sketch.

Old Coot Makes the List

DSC_5252-Edit

A new version of the “Birds for Words” iMessage sticker app is being released today and it includes one of my very first wildlife photos, an American Coot. I have always loved this photo even though it is rather unremarkable and not difficult to capture. Fittingly named as “Behind” it is included in version 1.5 of the application. Also included in this version are translations to Spanish, French, and Italian languages.

You can download your own copy of Birds for Words below. Just a reminder-it really does cost less than a cup of coffee!
