    What's the current fave in blending apps? Does Image Blender still do the business or is there a better alternative out there? I'd appreciate some opinions, puh-leaze. :)

    I love love love Image Blender and use it almost exclusively. I also love Juxtaposer (the ability to create stamps is it's most important feature IMO), and with it's new update will probably use that even more!

    Thanks, Cat. 3 'loves' for Image Blender and 1 for Juxtaposer says it all. :D

    My 2c ... if you already have and enjoy using Leonardo, Photoshop Touch or iColorama, they all can do all this without leaving the app. PS Touch has great selection tools and transformation tools, if not the great mask painting capabilities of the others.

    Ye olde FilterForge, brother of KitCam, was also good and I still like to use that occasionally too.

    Juxtaposer and Blender would be preferable if you just want to get on with it - really nice simple encapsulations of a fiddly task.

    Oh and distressed FX can use other images as textures ... which can also be a fun way to blend things.

    I have such a block regarding masking/blending with iColorama. I so WANT to be able to do it, but can't for the life of me figure it out. :( I think I need to sit down with someone and have them show it to me - I learn best that way.

    An app with a quick learning curve is Superimpose. I have yet to learn Blender and just downloaded juxtaposer since it went on sale today.

    I have Image Blender but I keep going back to SuperImpose. I have been contemplating Juxtaposer because for the first time ever it's $0.99, that and I keep seeing it mentioned here.

    I do 99% of my blending in Sketch Club which is really a drawing app but I got so used to using it when I was doing digital art that it's my go to app for layering, blending, blurring, etc.

    I started with Superimpose, purchased Photoshop Touch for layers and familiarity, purchased Leonardo out of curiosity, got Image Blender due to hype, and Juxtaposer 3.0 (hours before it dropped to .99c).

    Juxtaposer is inferior to Superimpose in my opinion due to its lack of Magic Wand and Lasso selection tools, although the 40MP maximum limit, and the complete undo in the former may change that. Superimpose excels at things like isolating complicated masks, e.g., text on a white background–an optimal scenario for the adjustable Magic Wand tool.

    Image Blender is nice to work with when the blending is simpler, and masking is kept to a minimum, as you have to do it by hand.

    Photoshop Touch and Leonardo, among others, although for the most flexibility as they support multiple layers.

    ImageBlender 90% of the time ... otherwise Superimpose purely because of the the simplicity and effectiveness of its masking tools.
