Fans of the low poly art movement will be happy to know that, there’s an app for that. Now, instead of building the geometric vector design from scratch, anyone can turn any image into something Piet Mondrian would be impressed with.
Trigraphy is a photography app that turns any picture into low poly geometric art. You can make a still life out of things you find in your kitchen and it will be good enough to frame.
Users start by either grabbing an image from their device’s camera roll, or taking a picture using the in-app camera. Trigraphy will create a low poly image within a few seconds, although it may take up to 10 seconds to complete the process.
You can randomly chance the complexity by double-tapping the screen. Or, you can scrub the complexity from one to 100 by dragging your finger slowly from left to right.
You can also change the poly modes using the editing options. Swipe up on the screen to bring up the editing tools. You can choose between four different shape makers, two different line options, and select either standard or form follow. Change the graphic effect to see multiple designs. Then, adjust the complexity to fine-tune the look.
When you’ve found the perfect look, swipe down on the screen to save the image. When you swipe down, you can either delete the current project, or swipe down further to save.
You can either save the picture to your camera roll, share it on Instagram, or use iOS 8’s app extension feature to send it to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more.
You can upgrade to export high definition photos for a one-time in-app purchase of $1.99. Images will then support 2560 x 2560 exporting. Purchasing the upgrade will also remove the watermark that appears on all saved images.
Trigraphy is available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for free. Download it in the App Store today.
