New photo video app

Update adding Flipagram on earlier published post 13th September 2014 changed title – Everlapse photo & video app

Added new app Flipagram, please scroll down to for more information and download links.

Always on the look out for digital applications to create great visual content. I just stumbled upon this Instagram application to engage followers and viewers and share on other social platforms as well. Everlapse a new visual sharing tool with a community released last summer July 2013, the app creates photo collections called clips in a repeating slideshow of 20 images. An iOs app is free downloadable on Itunes App Store.

Android users can only create an Instagram Highlights reel using Everlapse website connecting with your Instagram account. Although its fun to see the result and sharing it on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, without the release of an Android app its hard to make other flipbooks or photo albums. This is Asianfoodtrail Everlapse Instagram Highlights reel demo for now, would love to try the other options untill an Android version is released soon.


New Photo Video app

“These days, you have to strike while the app is hot.” This is the opening sentence in article on the Startup behind Flipagram, which appeared in the WSJ (click link for full review), which is seeking to raise an investment in the tens of millions that could value the Startup as high as roughly $300 million at the beginning early January this year.

I have downloaded the free Anroid version on my Samsung Note 3, with Flipagram I can use my mobile snapshots or even from other services into animated slideshows. You can add music, some less than 30 seconds are free or pay for premium features to download your favorite music or a personalized watermark. While Flipagram is not even a year old, it is a great example how fast mobile apps can amass significant followings.

Here is my photo video highlights of several dishes for #dinnertonight published on 29 September 2014,  Asianfoodtrail_com Instagram account  or another Instagram viewer Enjoygram. These two applications are for webview of Instagram photos taken with your smartphone.

As a young student studied traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy before attending the Shanghai Art & Design Academy, where he specialised in decoration and design beginning in 1996. In 1999 he attended the China Academy of Art, Visual Communication Department, Shanghai branch. In 2005 he started his career as an artist with the stated goal of “creating new forms of contemporary art. During the time many experimental short films and artworks had been nominated and prized. Many of his articles were published in various magazines in the field. His book “Grand Church” was published as a teaching material. 

Yang Yongliang creates his photographs using a digital camera. His many views of the cityscape are used as the building blocks for his works. The computer is his tool. He extends his digital photographic ‘landscapes’ to create video/digital animations. In Yang Yongliang’s video work, “Phantom Landscape”, the viewer encounters what appears to be a landscape painting. The mountains are composed of densely packed concrete buildings. The forest is composed of construction cranes and electric towers, and misty streams flow from contaminated urban waste. The scene that once was the inspiration for ancient poets is supplanted by a congested cityscape, filled with the too familiar concrete towers of modern cities and the atmospheric haze of pollution has replaced natural mists and clouds.
