New App Lets You Zoom Out After You Take the Picture
A big headache that comes with re-sizing or cropping photos is not when you have to cut stuff out. It’s when you need something like Photoshop to change the background: For example when the subject of a photo is too close to the edge.
AntiCrop, by Adva-Soft, is an iTunes app that adds faux background to photos, as if you were able to zoom out after the picture was taken. It’s similar to the cloning tool in Photoshop, but it automates some of the work and makes it a lot easier for people who aren’t graphic design mavens.
AntiCrop won’t work with just any background – it’s designed for relatively simple patterns such as sky or ground that can be convincingly copied. The 99-cent app is worth the price for anyone who just wants to fix photos and hasn’t the time, need or money to invest in sophisticated software.
