Hot air balloons take off at day break each summer morning from Twin Lakes east of Boulder, Colorado. This app contains 170 premium, ultra high definition photos of and from these balloons. These are original photographs by professional photographer Paul Richman of Pixels By Paul. They are available only in this app.
This is one of a series of ''Ultra-HD'' Pixels By Paul apps. Why "Ultra-HD"? Because including exceptionally high definition images offers the user several advantages over the usual screen sized imagery in most apps:
★ You see much more detail in these images.
★ You can select parts of an image to use as wallpaper in any orientation, without sacrificing sharpness or detail.
★ Many of these images look great, and make fascinating wallpaper, when they are stretched or squished to fit your device's screen. This can be done in any orientation, without sacrificing sharpness or detail, due to the ultra high definition of these images.
★ Slideshows are also more fun because they include scrolling across large images.
This app is designed to entertain, with its fun flipping browsing interface, and with its slideshows. It can also produce lovely wallpaper for your devices.
A unique feature of this overall series of Pixels By Paul apps is their ability to size wallpaper to fit within wallpaper safe areas. Safe areas are the areas in the Lock and Home Screens which are not blocked by the status bar, date/time bar, unlock slider, and dock. Pictures can be fitted to the safe area while keeping their original aspect (the ratio of height to width is maintained), or pictures can be stretched or squeezed to completely fill the safe areas.
Stretched images have a reflection at the bottom, so that they fade smoothly behind the bottom controls. You can also wrap your images, as in a gallery wrap print. Wrapped images keep their aspect ratio (remain un-stretched), but any surrounding black bars are filled in with reflections of the image.
You can make such safe area wallpapers from the pictures in this app, and you can do this with your own pictures as well.
