Choose Your Colour

Colour splash with a difference. Using the very versatile PowerCam iOS app it is possible to create the colour splash / pop effect at the time a photo is being taken. There is one choice out of the many available which enables me to touch the screen at a place showing the colour I want and the app then just picks out that colour. It was not easy to see the screen clearly in bright Sunlight.

Three photos taken from the same spot:



I must have touched on grey somehow for this one:


Blue sky:


Not really the best of subjects. All were post processed to some extent to increase contrast a bit and lessen the depth of shadows.

A couple taken through the kitchen window this dull Thursday morning.
These have not been retouched, exactly as taken.

Green grass chosen for colour splash / popping:


The inverse can also be picked where all colours except the chosen one will appear in the photo. This time the green of the grass was removed:


The process is instant. The result can be seen before the shutter button is pressed. Also it is possible to lock a chosen colour which helps as slight movements of the phone can vary the effect.

What will they think of next?


  1. This does an excellent job. It's frighteningly good.

    1. Adrian. It can be a bit fiddly but it's amazing the processing power of modern cameras and phones.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
