Photo Studio Buddy


Studio Buddy is a photographer's Lighting Diagram creator

After adding a diagram, you can add devices by using the menu or long-pressing anywhere on the screen except an object.
You can also bring up a context menu on an object by long-pressing it.
After you select an object, you can drag/move/resize it by dragging the control points up/down.
Fling (quickly swipe) the screen left to right to get to the other screens.

Known issues:
- SD card required, pixelated graphics on high-res devices (especially when you resize...the graphics are not vector, they're bitmaps)
- not optimized on tablets yet (doesn't use fragments and graphics aren't high-res enough...will be in 2.0 if enough people by the Full version)

Permissions Explanation:
- External Storage: for writing image to share
- Internet: sharing via Facebook, Twitter, etc.
- Gallery: for attaching BTS images to diagrams

Keywords: photography, strobe, flash, lighting, model, studio, diagram

Recent changes:
- added "Wide Window" object
- changed colors of rotate/resize buttons to highlight the mode it's in; when the color changes to red, you can slide your finger up/down on any part of the screen to resize...this was to keep it from losing your finger while resizing the object using only the resize square. Hope this makes it more obvious...
- enlarged the rotate/resize icons to make them easier to select

Does not work with on a 10.1 Galaxy Note 2014 Not real happy about spending money on an app that doesn't work on my tablet. I was looking for a tool to jot down lighting ideas on the go. I normally use Set.A.Light on desk top but I want to get away from lugging a laptop around. App worked fine on my note 2 phone but the objects in the diagram tool don't allow my to rotate them. That makes this app useless.

Needs updating Great start, needs updated lights and font control. Enlarging text gets pixelated.

Very cool app One of the main reasons for purchacing a tablet was apps like this .. As a photographer this is the type of thing that I need. I have not used it overly extensive so far but it seems very good at what it does and has the potential. Only niggle so far is the items once placed can be a little hit and miss to select the little "editing ars" so rotating the lights/model/modifiers can be a little finnicky, fixing this would be a god send for me. Impressed a few of my togging mates with iPads and phones and I think they will be looking into this :)
