"…Etchings outclasses them all with its ultra detailed, multi-lined sketches." — Juli Clover for App Advice
"The results are amazing.... My advice: Buy this app." — Charlie Sorrel for Cult Of Mac
"There’s nothing like Etchings in the App Store. It quickly and easily adds unique, classic looks to your images." — Marty Yawnick for Life In LoFi
Share Your Etching
Once you have created your beautiful etching, share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. Etchings also plays nicely with other apps: you can import images directly into Etchings and export them in high-resolution (up to 3300x3300) to the camera roll or your (second) favourite photo app.
Find just the right look from the dozens of combinations in Etchings. Try the "Classic" filter to create a timeless black-and-white illustration with amazing detail or, if you are looking for a little fun, try the "Spectrum" filter to create an extra-vibrant work of art. Why not immortalize your friends on some faux money or send them first-class with the "Air Mail" postage stamp filter.
For even more options, check out the Florence FX Pack! From the striking colorful "Alice" filter to the funky rainbow "Sorbet" filter, you can unlock six more hand-crafted effects for just 99 cents (or local equivalent).
Check out www.etchingsapp.com or follow @etchingsapp on Instagram and Twitter for some inspirational samples. You can search for #etchings to see the beautiful results created by artists from around the globe.
Note: High resolution output is limited to 1600x1660 on iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th generation, and iPad 1st generation. All other devices support resolutions up to 3300x3300.
What's New in Version 1.6.1
- Compatibility updates for iOS 7
Please let me turn off the frames. They're fine sometimes, intrusive others.
Like others, I looked forward to this app's arrival because of stories on various iPhonography blogs. It's really good, and I've already enjoyed working with it (it pairs really well with Decim8, for example, and output from it adds great texture to in various layering programs, like Layover). I understand the developer plans to add higher resolution. I'd like the option for portrait or landscape, too, not just the tyranny of the square.
As a paper and collage artist, I looked forward to the stamp, the faux-postage "Air Mail" filter, and it's great. We really need a good faux postage app that would allow changing colors, adding altering text, etc., and this isn't that, but it's still welcome. I hope the makers of this app will find ways to expand the options within the postage filter over time that would allow that kind of thing.
But on the whole, this is a really welcome addition to my app library. It's easy to use, creates a variety of looks, offers some genuine flexibility, and so on. Congrats to the developer(s).
Broken on 5s
This app has worked quite well for me in the past, but in my iPhone 5s, the cropping tool you (must) use to select a photo to work on does not crop the photo as you adjust it in the preview. Thus, the app is more or less useless as you are unable to precisely select which part of your photo you want to use.
Love this thing...
Searched for years for a PS plugin that could do etchings this well to no avail. Nice work!
