Remember 2005 when Yahoo! bought Flickr and we all hoped something good would come of it but they let it slowly rot? Well short of the heels of Yahoo! aquiring our beloved blogging platform Tumblr, they’ve announced and released a much needed update for Flickr. This is an update, we as photographers, will welcome with open arms as it seems Yahoo is finally ready to take things seriously on the photographic side.
Camera Apps are a dime a dozen on the App Store nowadays. Sometimes it’s hard to give another app a try because of the amount of copy of copies. Yet sometimes out of the blue an app comes which sets itself a part from the rest. VSCO Cam is one of those apps. After using the app for a great deal of time I’ve finally put all my thoughts down for you guys to judge.
Hey guys, it’s finally nice to get back in the groove of things and bring new iPhone app reviews your way. Starting things off I’d like to introduce you guys to SetMyCamera Pro. SetMyCamera Pro is an iPhone app designed to aid you in capturing the “perfect photo that will impress your friends and win you awards.“ The app does this by putting tools at your disposal which help you better think the composition of a photograph when your out in the field with your DSLR or any other camera for that matter.. Due to my unforeseen setback I was able to spend extra time playing around with this app and putting it through all it’s paces.
Hey guys, I come back from a long absence to talk about a new app by the creators of the ever popular Clear app. As you know we mainly talk about photography apps on here and we’re not deviating much here.
While combing through the iTunes App Store for new photography apps to try out, I came upon MINT Album. Before purchasing any new apps for my phone I ask myself a couple questions. Is there a stock app which already does this? Does it do it well? Looking at the stock photo app I cringed a little and went ahead and bought Mint.
As a lot of you know, well if you’ve followed my personal Twitter, I’ve come to hold FIF7Y in high regard when it came to iPhone themeing. He has created many great themes over the years which have graced my iPhone in beauty and elegance. Whenever he releases a new WinterBoard theme I am always one of the first one to jump in without looking back.
With the release of Dune I didn’t hesitate to open up ThemeIt App and purchase the again lovely looking theme. I installed the extras and marveled in it’s beauty for a couple hours, showing off the theme to a couple of my friends who I knew would love the theme and also think about buying it. I was truly satisfied with this theme.
TinyPlanets are a way to display a photograph in a spherical form which make the center appear like a tiny planet. They are a unique take on creating a photography. Although I don’t regularly post many of these, when I do I get questions asking how I did them. Continuing on my courses on iPhoneography, I decided I would write this tutorial focused entirely on making Tiny Planets with our smartphone. Although they can also be made with a DSLR and some different software packages, these is an inexpensive way to create a one of a kind photograph.
Hey guys, today I wanted to try something new. As you know this website and blog is dedicated to photography and design. With technology evolving the way it is, we are not only spending time in the field with our DSLR’s, we are also spending time in the field with our phones. I may be a little biased with this, but I want to test drive new and old photography apps so you don’t have to. I said biased earlier because most if not all of these apps I cover will be iPhone apps, sorry Android fans, I don’t have a Droid so I can’t really do videos for them.
As I said, I want to start a video series going over some apps which you may or may not need in your iPhoneography arsenal. At the end of the review you should be able to make a better guess whether the app is something you need in your toolkit.
So lets start this off.
Hey guys, hope you’re all having a goodnight tonight. What I’m about to tell you is a very easy way to add private registration to your GoDaddy domains for free. Well not totally free since it does include buying one new domain.
How I found out about this came as a total fluke. I was actually interested in buying a new domain for a business idea I have in mind. Like every typical purchase I do through GoDaddy, I first went to Retail Me Not and started looking for a juicy coupon to sweeten my purchase. We all know GoDaddy has some pretty amazing coupons usually. I didn’t expect what followed.
Added a video of Adobe Photoshop Touch Phone running on my iPhone 4 to the bottom of the post for you to view performance.
Over the past couple of hours Adobe Photoshop Touch Phone started going live in many Apple Store’s around the world. Many of us have been waiting for the phone version (yes, Andoid too) for well over a year. After it’s debut on the iPad, I knew I’d have to have it on my phone. Not only to edit a couple pictures here and there, I knew I’d need it for the features it packed and what it offered me in relation to being able to crop and resize images for this blog.
Just like the version released last year for the tablet, the phone version packs pretty much the same features but on a smaller screen. You’ve got layers, advanced selection tools, adjustment layers, blending option and much more. The only caveat is you have to have an iPhone 4s or an iPhone 5. I know this isn’t too big of a deal with many people who keep up with every iteration of the iPhone but for people like me, who haven’t upgraded you’ll run into a problem.
