HOPE Poster Photo Filter is a fun little iPad app that lets you create striking poster-style images very easily. Here’s a slice of its App Store intro:
HOPE Poster makes it easier than ever to turn your own photos into iconic posters featuring your own messages!
Choose from nine different unique and fun styles.
Just select your image, crop and position, choose a style, type your message and save to your library. Share your creations direct to Facebook and Twitter (both avatar and tweet using Twitpics).
The poster effects are similar to those used in the memorable Hope posters done for the Obama campaign in the 2008 presidential campaign in the US – though without the stencil-like effects.
The app couldn’t be much simpler to use. You could create the same sort of images using other iPad apps, but this one makes it extremely easy and fast – just as the App Store description says.
When you’re applying a filter there are Easy and Expert modes. In Easy mode you just tap to select an effect and you’re done. In Expert mode you can use slider controls to fine-tune the effects.
I enjoy using the app and it’s definitely one I’ll be keeping around – the speed and ease of use make it a fun and useful tool.
