Morpholio's Latest App Turns Photos Into Sketches, Mosaics, and More

Morpholio's Latest App Turns Photos Into Sketches, Mosaics, and More

The Morpholio Project's latest iPhone application, Morpholio Frame, "is like having a DJ booth for your photos." The application allows users to merge, crop, and filter photographs before posting them to social media outlets like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Sounds typical, right? Not so fast.

The application gives users more control than most thanks to an interactive matrix approach. Users can select up to three filters and three related masks, creating an image with one of 64 million unique filter combinations. One of the most interesting filters for architecture fans is "sketch" – as seen in the image after the break.

If you're having trouble choosing filters and masks, you can use the application's "MixingBoard" function to randomly fill in the matrix for you. Once you do find a combination you like, you can save it for future use.
