Creative Inspiration: Percolator Photo Mosaic App

Recently while perusing the internet I came across a photo created with an iphone app called
Percolator by Tinrocket. The effects on the photo were unusual, it was full of rings and circles 
and the effect instantly mesmerized me! I couldn't wait to try this app out for myself! 

For those who have used filter apps such as Instagram, Percolator works in a similar way;
 you chose a photo from your phone's own photo album or you can use your phone's camera 
feature to take a picture, which is then put into the app for you to add filters and effects to and 
turn into your own Percolated photo mosaic masterpiece! 

I just started playing around with it and so far, I've created some pretty cool effects on 
some of my photos. There are many different image options and effect settings in the app 
though, and it's taking me a while to get used to it (I'm still looking for instructions for how 
to use all of the features and effects.)
Check out my before and after Percolated photos and see what you think!

"Before" photo: This is my cat Sam. I took this photo with my iphone5. 

"After" photo: Here's the same photo after I percolated it. Pretty cool, no?

Before: Here's a photo of Nancy Wilson that I took at a Heart concert 

After: The same photo, percolated

Before: Here's a photo I took at a recent Phillies baseball game

After: The same photo, percolated
