My colleagues at MTV have shown me this app over a year ago and I just remembered it. Now that I’m on the iSide I can finally start exploring all the crazy goodies people have been talking about for years.
This venture started with a picture I took on the iPad using Retro Camera, and app that I’ll talk about in detail another time. It just happened to be in my camera roll, so I used it in Yearbookyourself.
You can adjust the rotation and contrast of the picture and preview it live, tweaking until you’re happy. How many people’s yearbooks have they been through I wonder? And what do the people think whose faces have been photoshopped out?
Looking at the Rodeo Roper picture in particular I find it scary that I look a it like my Dad in this one – yet if you look at my Dad and me next to each other, we feature very few similarities (if any).
I think I’d like to see a pro version for higher image output and iPad compatibility. But then I guess the app was created to drive traffic to the Yearbookyourself.com website which sells print on demand photo books. Now that’s a great marketing strategy.
Give it a try – I thoroughly enjoyed it! I’ll try Fatbooth next I think…
