App Description

Want to experience the beauty and grandeur of one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in North America? Want imagery that will show off the incredible resolving power and dazzling color of your apple device? Want to make stunning wallpaper for it?

Well, then, you've come to the right place. This app presents 108 professional photographs of the Oxbow and surrounding areas in the Grand Tetons National Park of Wyoming. All images are in full iPad Retina display resolution. These images will exquisitely reveal the resolving power of a Retina display. Here you'll see original, premium images of morning sunrise with mist shrouded mountains, the most beautiful fall color at Oxbow in a decade, Snake River vistas with fresh snow and frozen trees that sparkle white, coyote, marmot, moose, buffalo, badger and more. Information is included for each photo.

The photos here are optimized for Apple devices, and this app can turn them into perfect wallpaper for Home and Lock Screens.

An exclusive feature of all the Pixels By Paul apps is their ability to size wallpaper to fit within Home and Lock screen "safe areas". Safe areas are the central areas in the Lock and Home Screens which are not blocked by the status bar, date/time bar, unlock slider, and dock. Pictures can be fitted to the safe area while keeping their original aspect (the ratio of height to width is maintained), or pictures can be stretched or squeezed to completely fill the safe areas.

Stretched images are given a reflection at the bottom, so they fade smoothly behind the bottom controls. You can also wrap images, as in a gallery wrap print. Wrapped images keep their aspect ratio (remain un-stretched), but any surrounding black bars (used to keep the image centered in the safe area) are filled in with reflections of the image.

You can make such safe area wallpapers from the pictures in this app, and you can do this with your own pictures.

This app is fully optimized for Retina iPads and the new iPhone 5. All graphical elements are at full Retina iPad resolution, and the app takes full advantage of the enlarged iPhone 5 screen size.

You can now send physical post cards from within this app to anyone anywhere in the world. The picture you choose (from this app or from your own Photos library) will be on the front of the postcard. You enter a message and recipient address, and the postcard is printed and mailed.

This app can entertain in several ways. It's fun to flip through its 4-up browsing screens, and to watch 4-up or 1-up slideshows. Try stretching the images to fill their quadrant (4-up) or screen (1-up), both in portrait and in landscape orientation. And do search through to find and make your favorite wallpaper images.

A pictorial help file is included, with usage tips and disclosure of hidden features.

This app requires no internet connection to run (except for sending postcards). Everything you need is included inside this application. And it's a universal app! Run it on your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, all for one low price.

Order large prints of these photos, unmounted or mounted, at discounted prices.

This app requires iOS 4.3 or higher.
