ColorSplash for iPad

This is a lovely app.

Grab any photo from your library, and bring it into ColorSplash. It converts it into greyscale, then as you rub the screen with your finger, the original colour under your finger is revealed again.

It can sometimes be easier to get the edges right by zooming in and pressing the red button at the top of the screen to see the image this way…

For example, here is a photo of my son Felix when he was 5 with some presents he got for his birthday where I have used ColorSplash to make everything greyscale, apart from the cars and warning signs…

My home screen

Here is a screen dump of my home screen.

If you don’t know, you can take a ‘photo’ of any screen on your iPad by holding down the Power and Home buttons.

The background shot is of my youngest son (I have 2 boys).

I used ColorSplash for iPad to turn the colour photo into black and white, then I ‘painted’ back in the colour of the toy cars at the bottom of the screen.

It’s a pure fluke that the first 8 apps all have blue in them! (Or I think it is!)

I’ll post info about all of these in due course in separate posts.

Oh yes: you’ll see that I have 6 icons on the Dock at the bottom of the screen: there are only 4 there on a brand new iPad. To get 2 more there, simply tap on any icon and hold until the icons start to wiggle and an X appears in the corner of each one. Then just drag an icon onto the Dock. Press the Home button to get out of ‘wiggle/move/delete app’ mode.
