Sometimes, you don’t need a reason to create something beautiful, other than just the urge to do it.  This is the philosophy I feel behind texBlend, the iDevice texture blending product brought to market by Uwe Steinmueller, my close friend, frequent contributor here, and owner of  texBlend is not a product with a compelling “must have it for work” required software mandate, though its use would certainly spruce up the creative content in any marketing related piece.

Indeed, the concept behind texBlend is a simple one.  Pick a subject photo, then pick a “texture” recipe and apply it.  Easy to learn, fast to execute, beautiful results to look at.  And simple enough to allow a wound-up creative mind to unwind, decompress with something more productive than TV!  You can load and save texture recipes too.  How much easier could having fun be?

Unlike many photo apps on iPad and iPhones, texBlend does not force you to capture your subject photo on your phone itself.  You can simply email a photo to open on your iPad/iPhone, and proceed from there.

Variations and combinations are almost endless in possibilities.  You can create constructs not possible in other ways, and take advantage of the huge image toning possibilities made possible by texBlend.
