PhotoTropedelic is a fun image processing app by Larry Weinberg that allows users to import photos from their device and utilize a variety of filters to change them into psychedelic 60′s pop art! Among the many features, perhaps the most useful are the customizable color palette, design elements, line width, and complexity – creating groovy photos has never been easier! PhotoTropedelic generates jpg/png or vector PDF files that can be sent directly to Facebook or via email, and is available for $1.99 in the iTunes Store.

From the press release:
The Trumpeter Swan “Fools Parade” video was inspired in part by the PhotoTropedelic app, which translates still images into fantastic, vivid and trippy one-of-a-kind pop art creations. Not only was the iPhone app the creative tool behind the video, but Director/Shooter/Editor Jeff Turboff took it one step further by shooting the entire video on the iPhone 4s.
After shooting and editing the original footage, Turboff then exported and processed each and every frame of the video, all 5,016 of them, one at a time using the PhotoTropedelic app. Each video frame was meticulously tweaked by varying the colors, patterns and special effects to give each its own unique visual characteristics. Then all 5,000+ processed video frames were reassembled as a video sequence. Larry Weinberg, creator of PhotoTropedelic, said, “I was not prepared for what Jeff pulled off for this video. An incredible effort in the name of creativity.”
