Two of my favorite Photos apps for the iPad were updated this week – TitleFx and PhotoToaster, both by East Coast Pixels.
TitleFx helps to make a statement with your photos by adding text and some great text effects. I did a review of TitleFx last December and I was already a big fan. Of course I used it to add text to the images in this post. It was updated to Version 2.0 this week. Here are the notable changes in this update:
We’ve added a transparency control, which is great for creating creative text layouts but also for watermarking.
There’s a crop editor, so you can crop square for Instagram or just crop to improve a photo.
You can save your own default starting state, which is perfect for water marking or saving a preferred layout.
We added a second set of 24 new fonts and some new FX.
There have also been a bunch of performance improvements and a few bug fixes.
TitleFx is a new iPad (and iOS) app that brings excellent titles and text to your photos. It’s from East Coast Pixels, the developers of the stellar PhotoToaster app – which was one of our picks for Best iPad Apps of 2011.
Here’s a slice of the App Store description for TitleFx:
TitleFx allows your pictures to tell a story by adding broadcast quality titles. You can turn any picture into a magazine cover, and then share it with your friends.
Pick from a collection of beautiful fonts and colors and apply stunning effects. The interface allows you to see the result before you select it, with a series of unique live lists.
The possibilities are limitless and the results are stunning.
Create multiple text objects with full control over size and position. If you make a mistake you can undo and redo until you get it right. Compositions are saved to a recent list so you can go back and re-edit at any time. This is a powerful, full featured editing environment.
I had very high hopes for the app as soon as I saw it released, because it’s made by East Coast Pixels. It has not disappointed – hit the break for some of the reasons why …
