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

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

Today, R is for Reflect.

This is a simple little app, with a very similar design to Alien Skies, likely because they have the same developer.  You add reflective surfaces to the lower half of an image.  There are also a few enhancement options like textures and elements you can play with, and you can add a layer of fog on the top of the added surface.  I have to admit, it is one of my favourite apps right now, and I have been adding water to images like crazy.  Another one of those fads that will go out of style at some point, but between the menacing moon and the flood waters, I have some pretty good dystopian images right now (not sure what that is saying….)

    Interesting. I’m always interested in how these image apps work.
