Blog . Green Screen Studio
Green Screen Studio by Michael Moon is a chroma key application that allows users to change a monochromatic background into any image they have in their photo library. The app is available for $2.99 in the iTunes Store. Continue below for an in-depth view of this app!
✓ Apply backgrounds automatically
✓ Apply backgrounds manually using a selection of tools without having a green screen
✓ Fully functional photo editing tools!
✓ Intelligent one-tap Auto Enhance filter.
✓ Draw on your photos.
✓ Add fun stickers and text.
✓ Adjust Brightness, Saturation and Contrast.
✓ Sharpen and Blur.
✓ Adjust, Crop, and Rotate your photos.
✓ Red-Eye, Whiten and Blemish tools
✓ Additional ten gorgeous photo effects to apply to your photos.
First, create a new project. You will then be prompted to choose your images:
“Choose base image: In order to start your composition you will need two images. First, choose base image. This will be the “canvas” onto which you can then add elements from other images.”
“Choose top image: Next, choose the top image. You will be able to erase parts of it, re-size, move and rotate it to combine it with the base image in fun and creative ways.”
Here are my images – two appropriated stock photos. I probably should’ve chosen a less fuzzy subject, but let’s see where this goes!
Next, using the Color tool, I erased the white background of the kitten. The small close-up viewfinder was extremely helpful, but I highly recommend using a stylus for this process. The Brush Size option allows the user to change the size of their brush and turn the preview and visible brush tip on or off. You must tap Pan & Zoom to navigate around your canvas (by pinching and dragging across the screen) and hit Color once more to continue editing. Move Top Image is pretty self-explanitory – just pinch and drag to rotate and drag your top image wherever you’d like.
There are also a variety of editing options for both the base and top images – access them by tapping Edit Top Image/ Edit Bottom Image in the top menu.
The available photo filters include Original, Singe, Vivid, San Carmen, Indiglow, Concorde, Aqua, Strato, Laguna, Ventura, and Soft Focus (very similar to Instagram).
Just for fun-sies.
Other editing options include: Enhance, Orientation, Crop, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness, Draw, Text, Redeye, Whiten, and Blemish. If you have ever used a basic online photo-editor, these tools are a breeze, involving simple tap and drag options with various sliders.
Once you are finished editing, you can save your image to your camera roll or order various prints.
Overall, this application is great for on-the-go photo editing fun, but that’s about it. Throughout my editing the app crashed several times, and the final images are very poor quality. For more serious edits, I recommend Photoshop!
