More iPhone/Touch Fun – Fake Your Own Ghost/UFO Photos!

Posted by mattusmaximus on March 4, 2010

In keeping with the melding of modern technology with good ol’ fashioned skepticism, I’ve found out about a few neat iPhone/Touch apps that are, in my opinion, a must-have for any skeptic.  These apps allow one to take photos and manipulate them into giving the appearance of having captured images of ghosts and/or UFOs & aliens. And while such photo manipulation is not proof positive that ghosts & aliens do not exist, when such manipulation is so easy to accomplish it should give one cause to pull out their Occam’s Razor in an effort to slice away the b.s.

Using these apps, take a look at how I added a ghostly spirit and alien UFO to a couple of my photos…

So what sort of goodies are available at the iTunes store for such skeptical fun?  Read on…

First, there’s the Ghost-Capture Free app…

Ghosts Don’t Exist Presents “Ghost Capture”

Create realistic paranormal photo manipulations right on your iPhone and iPod Touch**!

With Ghost Capture, you can manipulate any photo from your iPhone photo album. After choosing an image, (or taking a new photo directly through Ghost Capture) select a ghost to superimpose onto the photo. Choose from creepy Victorian children, faceless torsos, Civil War soldiers, ghostly orbs, and more. After placing the ghost, adjust the size, rotation, and transparency to achieve the optimum effect. Don’t like the way your ghost is turning out? Hit the reset button to put it back in the center of the screen for you to start over or even select a different ghost! Save and email your creation to your friends, and let them judge for themselves!

You can also submit them to us for our gallery, which will be coming soon!

Ghost Capture is brought to you by Ghosts Don’t Exist, an independent film by 19th + Wilson—executive produced by Chris Cooley of the Washington Redskins. The story revolves around a popular TV ghost hunter losing faith in what he believes. After announcing his retirement, he decides to take one last case when a potential client guarantees to provide the proof he’s been looking for. Upon arriving at the home, the client announces that he will make good on the promise by contacting the team himself—from the beyond.

But there’s even more fun because if you want, you can also mess with your friends’ heads by adding UFOs or aliens with the UFO Sightings Free app…
