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

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

Today, N is for Noir.

Noir is a pretty simple little app.  It turns pictures black and white, well monochrome anyway, with very few options, but some pretty stunning results.  There are 6 preset vignettes which you can fine tune by moving them around the image and pinching them in and out.  There is also a set of three control dials to control contrast, outer exposure, and inner exposure.  Finally you have four monochrome settings: sepia, silver, blue-gray, and chartreuse (green).

I like this app because it does little, but does it well, and you can use it before or after running photos through other apps.

And now some examples:

Original Photo

Preset Vignette 1 + sepia colour

Preset Vignette 2 (moved to right)+ silver

Preset Vignette 3 (on bottom) + blue gray

Preset Vignette 4 (at top) + chartreuse

Preset Vignette 5 (bottom right) + sepia

Preset Vignette 6 (top left) + blue gray

  1. I love this tree in all it’s editions.

  2. I like 2 and 6 the best. The color for 4 reminded me of a scene from an oldtime horror film.

  3. The first one, sepia, just jumped out at me – don’t know why. Some photos just are more stunning in monochrome aren’t they. It’s an interesting picture in any form and interesting to me since my gallery is full of trees and forests. Love the subject! Enjoying A to Z challenge?

  4. Thanks for sharing about the app. I like 2 and 3. Dropping by from a-z challenge.
