There was never anything more fun than a snow day when I was young. Getting to skip a day of school and run around in the snow was far more interesting than sitting in school. Today you can grab the Snow Days app by JixiPix for free. There are separate versions for the iPad and iPhone.
As with all the JixiPix apps, it is really simple to use and creates very interesting effects depending on the app. In this particular case the goal is to get that really nice look of snow.
I took this image of a sunset and used Snow Daze to get cool wintery photo.
Go ahead and grab these while they are free (regularly $1.99 which is still a good price!).
Now, just for fun I took the output from Snow Daze and used Glaze to give it a painting-ish look. This would make a nice holiday card for someone that worked in one of those buildings down there. My office is just a bit out of the picture.
Description: Snow Daze
We all love a snow day. Whether you enjoy being let out of school, sitting by a fire drinking hot chocolate, staring out the window and watching the flakes fall, kids yelling and screaming as they play, or just standing and listening to the serene quit that snow brings.
A snow day is a day to play hookie, forget all the stresses of life, hang out with the kids, just have fun…
JixiPix’s Snow Daze app recreates all these memories directly on your images. Great for creating Christmas cards or adding an artistic touch to an otherwise general photo.
As with all JixiPix apps the usage of Snow Daze is super simple and creates amazingly realistic results. Drag and drop you photo into the app and hit the always wonderful Randomize button, tap the “Save Photo” menu and send to family and friends.
