A diptych of dragonflies


A diptych of Slaty Skimmer dragonflies (Libellula incesta) spotted during photowalks through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. The diptych (shown above), entitled “Perching Slatys,” was created using Diptic  app for Apple iOS mobile devices.

Tech Tips: The source photos were post-processed using Apple “Aperture,” a professional-grade tool for organizing and adjusting photos, before they were imported into “Diptic” app. Selected images were cropped to fit perfectly within the borderless frames I chose to use in “Diptic.” In order to create a “Normal” resolution Diptic (1024 x 1024 pixels) like the one shown above, I used “Aperture” to crop photo tiles from the source images in the following sizes: 512 x 512 pixels (square); 512 H x 1024 W pixels. Next, I used iTunes to sync the photo tiles to my iPad. Finally, I launched Diptic, selected the photo tiles, and added black and white borders with a width of 10 pixels.
