Cover design can be choosed from either Anton Granderts lovely illustration or a clean black cover with an orange band. In Swedish stores in July!

 

 

Awesome apps for Whitelines paper

Posted by & filed under News.

My name is August Schelin, I’m 15 years old and I’m a “trainee” at Whitelines.
I was given the task of finding cool apps that can be used with whitelines. I’ve tried out a number of useful applications that go hand in hand with Whitelines paper and i found two apps which I especially liked; Photogene and Photoforge. These apps leave you with a crisp and clear picture or text that leaves no trace of the lines, perfect for transferring a handwritten or drawn document to your computer.
 
This is the original picture I edited (taken with my iPhone).

Editing with Photogene

A simple, yet powerful application that gives you an array of tools to use including, of course, the normal ones like brightness/contrast, levels and saturation. Personally I thought this app was very easy to use and simple but effective.

Steps
· Crop/rotate image as you like.
· Edit exposure (see picture)
· Edit contrast (see picture)
· Adjust levels (see picture)

The result:

Conclusion: This app was very affordable, at only 15 SEK or $1.99, had a user-friendly interface and good tools. In a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being totally pointless and 10 being totally awesome I’d rate this app with a strong 8,1.
