A while back, I reviewed Glaze for iOS. It’s a painterly effects app for iPhone and iPad. Although I usually don’t review paint and “natural media” apps, I thought Glaze was interesting enough to have a look at here.
Within the past couple of weeks, Glaze has gotten a couple of updates. The first one is a pretty big update, and the latest, today’s, fixes some of the bugs in the previous update. Glaze is still FREE right now so grab this app quickly before the price goes back up to $2.99. Keep reading for more info and an App Store link. >>>
I haven’t had a chance to try the new update yet, but here’s the rundown of the past two updates. Forgive the copy and paste. Gotta get to the post office.
What’s New in Version 1.5
• Explicit output resolution selector fixes iPhone 3GS & iPad1 low-resolution output issue and enables hires output of small source images.
• In-app purchases work when disconnected from the Internet.
• 30 new styles! 6 free styles and 24 more with in-app-purchase.
• Send a postcard with a glazed image directly to anywhere in the world.
• Share images to other photo apps with Photo App Link.
• Improved quality with better color shading and anti-aliasing.
• Metadata from original images saved to glazed output.
• Optimized for iphone5.
The current version of Glaze now supports full-resolution output, allowing you to create images suitable for poster-sized, museum-quality printing. The breathtaking new styles provide amazing new looks that use our improved shading engine to provide vivid colors with no loss of brightness after glazing. Metadata support completes this new set of features designed to make Glaze perfect for professional-quality work, allowing you to glaze your images as part of a larger processing pipeline with no loss of quality or data.
(*) Full-resolution output requires lots of memory. We conservatively estimate available memory and display a warning if full-resolution output is not feasible. Full resolution output only supported when saving to the gallery, via Email or sharing to other apps via Photo App Link. Facebook and Twitter use reduced resolution due to system limitations.
