Country Road - a pano sabotage by ImageArt Ann


Have you heard of ‘panorama sabotage’? Neither had we o_O until ImageArt Ann started a thread HERE with some information and links. Members have been posting their sabotages, and the tips they are learning as they go.

Please join in: if you have some wrecked panos to share, or some tips & tricks, we’d love to see them. Or just have a browse and let us know what you think.

WARNING: be prepared to see a three-headed rizole and some seriously strange looking children :eek:

This week in 2Weekly APPstract #10 it’s Fabricated Faces !

The faces have to be made from recognisable things (but not real face-things). Here’s one from JillyG - teapot handles, apples, eggs, an elderflower. . . The jury is still out on the nose - we’re not sure what it is :lol:


Please join in - art-for-fun is good for your brain. And you couldn’t post anything sillier than what we’ve already posted :thumbs: Here is the link :)

It’s channel your inner unselfconscious artistic child week in Mobi APPstract!
You can do some finger painting in your favourite sketch/paint app, pick a kid’s art lesson from our selection or dream up your own art game.

rizole has offered his family’s scribble game. What do you think you could make of this?:


See some of the versions coming up here

Mobi 2Weekly Appstract Challenge

Here is a chance to cut loose and show off your aptitude (or not) with filters overlays glitching reflecting layering painting altering double-exposing and more. Themes are chosen by the weekly guest judge (previous week’s winner) and could be anything from a colour to a shape to a letter or number, an occasion, a line from a poem or . . . something I can’t predict :appsir:

Come one, come all, beginners or experts, nobody cares — and besides, it’s abstract art, that wonderfully undefinable thing that invites you to forget the rulebook and just play :D

There’s even a Pinterest page ‘Art Games for MobiTog.com’ for inspiration
— here’s the LINK

New members: please join in.
If you have any questions, you can leave a message here

iPhonePS Emil’s iPhone Photography School offers some helpful hints on how we can improve our black and white photographs. The article comes from an iPhone angle and some of the apps may be iPhone only, but I think the advice is pertinent to ALL mobile devices. See what you think: https://iphonephotographyschool.com/black-and-white/

Mobile Photography Tips from Pros

Lenses and filters

View attachment 115377

“Any use of filters in photography is easier if you have the classic RGBCMY photographic colour wheel firmly in your mind. If you have the painter’s colour wheel in mind nothing will make sense. The same is true for any type of colour correction on images. Photography involves both additive and subtractive primaries. Filters pass certain colours and absorb or block certain colours.....”​

Read more excerpts and see more examples from FundyBrian ‘s textbook on filter/lenses here
