LoFi Birthday Giveaway: Dan Marcolina’s AppAlchemy

This week marks the 3rd Anniversary of Life In LoFi. To celebrate, we’re giving away a lot of great photo apps and gear all week long, and there’s still some great giveaways in the wings!

Today’s giveaway is the excellent eBook AppAlchemy for iPad by Dan Marcolina. I previewed the book here. “AppAlchemy” is focused on apps, processes and quickly learning many advanced production and processing techniques to give you the tools to really ramp up your apping skills. Keep reading to find out how you can win a copy. >>>

I’m a big fan of a good how-to book. In less than a few hours, you can quickly and easily learn techniques and insights that might take years of trial and error to pick up. Searching the web is good, but finding a good, overall authority gives a set of tutorials a level of consistency.

“AppAlchemy” is an interactive eBook full of information, tutorials and multimedia. Quoting my review of the book, “The app’s interactive text/video tutorials are easy to follow. Either taken as a whole or taken in bits, “AppAlchemy” will have beginners apping like pros in no time and give more experienced iPhonegraphers a lot of new tips, tools and techniques to have in their virtual camera bag.”

AppAlchemy is normally $8.99 in the App Store. AppAlchemy is iPad-only. Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

    Why do all the giveaways require Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts? What about the rest of us? Don't we count for something?

    • Rafflecopter saves me a lot of time in doing these giveaways — about an hour for each giveaway on the back end. For those without social media accounts, I've added a field so that you can enter by simply commenting on the blog post for this week's giveaways. We'll see how it works out.
