Blogging from A to Z Challenge: X is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2022 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, X is for TangledFX.

TangledFX is one of my favourite apps and was one of the first I discovered on this journey of photo enhancement through app use on my iPad.  According to TangledFX (which you have to check out – there are some amazing examples on this site): “Tangled FX isn’t like other photo-editing apps out there. It doesn’t saturate colours or simply add an overlay to a picture. What it does is enhance what’s already in the pictures, transforming lines and changes in hue into accented strokes, lines, and swirls with varying degrees depending on the preset being used. You can go for a look that changes the picture in subtle ways all the the way to an image that looks completely different from the original.”

There are a number of presets, each of which allows for a number of enhancements, and you can use it for subtle effects, or go al out (which is, you know, my personal preference!)


Full set of possible enhancements:


Original Image

Fibres, no tuning

Brush strokes – style dark

Small details – adjust post sharpen size

Swirls – sharpen amount up and hue shift up

Cartoon – contract down, gamma up
