I have written about Masque in a previous entry. It's an iPad application which allows the user to paint effects to portions of the picture. The effects vary from blur, saturation, bright, dark, contrast and black and white effects. Unlike other applications, thr effects can be painted over specific areas of the picture.
I have used the "brighten" effect on two pictures. The first one is a picture of myself with a bright background rendering my face as dark as an apparition. The second picture has the foreground image of Char Siew bright but with Midori in the background, Midori could not be seen.
These are the before and after pictures of Masque magic.
