Percolator for iOS is an app for creating mosaic images from your photos. The process of making a mosaic is straightforward. Using the app, you take a photo via the built-in camera or choose an existing photo from your photo library.
My photo of lanterns beneath the A38 flyover, in a pedestrian space between the Mailbox and Birmingham city centre, is featured in this week’s Birmingham Post. Each week the newspaper features photos submitted to the Birmingham Post flickr group.
Here are eight images of the Grand Union Canal at Olton, Solihull. I took the original photo with an iPhone 3G S and added the retro effects with the Lo-Mob app. Lo-Mob adds a retro, low-tech feel to photos, such as ‘through the viewfinder’ (TTV), medium format, 35mm and emulsions. I imagine ‘real’ photographers (who understand the craft – not photo tinkerers like me) or Photoshop experts may be aggrieved at filter apps like Lo-Mob.
