Convert photos into sound
In case your active project requires audio effects that are either hard to obtain or create, you might have stumbled upon a suitable alternative. It's not quite the sound you would expect, each color tone being transformed into frequencies, so if your ears wanted a more musical approach, you better turn on the radio.
Some of the most common image file types can be inserted with no restriction to size or quality. Your photo is displayed in a center preview section for you to better understand what each color sounds like.
The more colorful the image the more diverse sounds
Most of the workspace is fitted with knobs that let you modify the minimum and maximum frequency to be included in the transformation, volume, gamma for the given image, as well as several other audio related options.
Additionally, you find several color related tools that give you the possibility to lighten or darker areas, paint white and black, as well as inverting colors. Unfortunately, no implemented selector lets you carefully choose and place custom colors to make the sound even more interesting.
Work with multiple layers
To further enhance creating possibilities, you are able to add multiple layers, but cannot include a different image in each one. However, several tools are available to customize each layer so that you can work with the existing image.
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Photosounder gives you the possibility to create sound effects in a clever way. Careful adjustment of colors and frequencies let you get just the right pitch. It keeps you wondering what every photo from your computer sounds like.
