Keynote comes with the "instant Alpha" tool allowing you to delete a specific colour from an image.
Keynote allows you to set the background colour

You don't need Words or Page too...

Ca-mera, a photo App… a very cool App. I have added the App Store description just below. Do you remember VirtualRoom Pro by MN Signal Processing? Yes, I am sure… this App has been developed by the same developer. It's a filter photo Fx App. You like it or not. I like it. It's not sure that you will be able to shoot the landscape that you love, because it's not so easy to find the best light. Depending of it you will be able to understand, recognise the subject or not. A kind of diaphragm will be great to have. A zoom too. This App is Free, and if you are a little bit lucky, you will be able to make an awesome picture. If not, at least, you will be able to make a piece of art.
A Super App!
Save your pictures to the camera roll / no import
App Store description: Probably the nerdiest camera app ever made, ca-mera uses a cellular automaton to interpret the brightness values of your camera stream. The resulting images are black/white and pixelated, and contain unique patterns created by the cellular automaton (Wolfram rule 126).
This app provides a "selfie" mode, and lets you change the appearance of the pictures by controlling the automaton application direction, the resolution, the input brightness, and the input fidelity (i.e. to which extent the cellular automaton is allowed to run freely).

Rule 126 is one of the elementary cellular automaton rules introduced by Stephen Wolfram in 1983 (Wolfram 1983, 2002). It specifies the next color in a cell, depending on its color and its immediate neighbors. Its rule outcomes are encoded in the binary representation . This rule is illustrated above together with the evolution of a single black cell it produces after 15 steps. Rule 126 is amphichiral, and its complement is rule 129. Starting with a single black cell, successive generations , 1, ... are given by interpreting the numbers 1, 7, 27, 127, 387, 1935, 6579, 32767, ... in binary, namely 1, 111, 11011, 1111111, 110000011, ....
Someone asked me if I could do the 20 images of his story board with my iPad.... "yes for sure, you can do everything with an iPad!" I am not a draftsman, therefore, only one solution, the ruses of Sioux! 5 Apps to do that. 1 / Universal Image Search Pro to search the photos on the net. 2 /Background Eraser - Pic Editor to erase background and export the result as a png file. 3 / Keynote to do my collages. 4 / MobileMonet to turn a photo into a draft. 5 / InfiniFX by Voxeloid Kft to add an effect to these drawings.
Universal Image Search Pro by surendra kumar
I already talked and reviewed this App... This App is Free!
So, first I had to find all the images needed for his story board. Universal Images is a Web browser for images only. I always use it, because it allows me to save time. For this "job" I need to make collages, so better to use.png images. So, I typed - my search png - If I am lucky, I will save time. If not I will have to delete the background. See next App.
Background Eraser - Pic Editor by Tasnim Ahmed
This App is Free but comes with in App purchases. This is my favourite App to delete a background! 1/ Because you can set the distance between the Eraser and your finger. (Check out the 2 blue points in the picture below....) 2/ Because you have different way to erase a background: instant alpha, lasso, eraser... 3/ Because you can export your result as a png file.
Keynote by Apple
Keynote is the App that I am using everyday, for everything... The best App to create presentation, collage, everything... So, I made my collage in Keynote, then made a screenshot and imported it in Mobilemonet HD. See next App.
MobileMonet - Photo Sketch, Watercolor and Oil Painting Effects by East Coast Pixels, Inc.
Photo to draw There are a lot of Apps like this one in the App Store but I really love this one because of its ease to use...
InfiniFX by Voxeloid Kft.
The man was happy with Mobilemonet HD but wanted that I add something... So, I used another FX App, similar to Mobilemonet with much more Fx to create a shadow... Photocopier Fx
Do you know this App? Yes! OK, I add the Apps that I received at this moment for the Sunday Contest #012 below.... You don't know this App... Watch the video trailer below. Awesome! A Killer App! Free! I forgot: PhonoPaper has been developed by Alexander Zolotov (PixiTracker and Sunvox)
I don’t know if you can remember this famous photo studio created at the beginning of the previous century? Le studio Harcourt. At this moment all the famous actor and actress wanted to be shoot by them. The consecration! With Noir Photo, don’t need to travel in France, Paris… you also don’t need a black & white picture of you. Even more, you don’t need to be a Photoshop expert! You only need to have an iPad or iPhone and a role in 1 or 2 movies… Too simple to be a Killer App? No! A Killer App! A Must Have!

For this video I used a music composed and performed by X & 11. This music as well as the entire album has been created with iOS Apps only. I hope that you will love this title as much as I love it... Tap on the image below for more info about this Artist.
Nothing will deleted or removed from this blog. For my mistakes or angers, apologies and corrections will be added if needed.
You can see everyday on a banner in the What's hot today post the Apps offered by a developer...
If you participate to the Sunday Contest, you will have to trust in me... But, if you like you can asked me the email list of the readers who participate to a Contest included Time and Date. I will send it to you...
My rating... The first criterion is the App Store description. The last one is my taste and this is totally subjective... Each post come with a tutorial showing you all the knobs, menu, faders,.... Everything that you will be able to find in an App... I hope that this will help to make your own rating.
If I really don't like an App, don't understand it or found too many bugs, I send an email to the developer.... I asked him if the App will be update shortly, I also offer my services as Beta Tester.... Most of the time, I will wait for a future update... Developers are humans too!...
All comments will be publish here. For insults, offenses or very bad mood, the only restriction is that you have to sign with your real name...
I don't know... Peraphs that I will add something later,
