Diptic dilemna: Black or white border?


Another “Hi-Res” Diptic (resolution = 2048 x 2048 pixels) of Slaty Skimmer dragonflies (Libellula incesta) spotted during photowalks through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. The diptychs (shown above), entitled “Perching Slatys II,” were created using Aperture and Diptic  app for Apple iOS mobile devices. The color of the border is the only difference between the two Diptics — which color do you prefer, black or white?

The following gallery illustrates the workflow used to create the composite image in Diptic.

  1. Browse stock layouts; choose a layout (Image No. 1).
  2. Select photos (No. 2).
  3. Select the source of the photos to add to the layout; add photos (No. 3).
  4. Add effects; tap “Border” button (No. 4).
  5. Select border options (No. 5).
  6. Export Hi-Res Diptic (No. 6).
  7. Save output to “Saved Photos” (No. 7).
