When you have many, many friends on Facebook, it can sometimes be hard to get through your whole stream of "news." Photos are a great addition to your Timeline, simply because they can share an idea without needing a paragraph of explanation (unless it's one of those terrible "if this gets 1 million likes" chain posts). Unfortunately, when you see one that is too small to show off all the detail, you have to click to enlarge it.
Instead of clicking on each photo, you can view the enlarged version of a photo by simply … Read more
Over for iOS lets you jazz up your Instagram photos with beautifully rendered typography to make them more than just photos with filters.
This is not a complete photo-editing app. Instead, with Over, you're adding great-looking fonts to your images to tell more of the story, make a meme, or simply to add a label. You start by picking an image from your iPhone photo library. A wheel-like interface on the right gets you to the apps main functions where you can choose your fonts, edit what you have on screen, save to your camera roll, or share to … Read more
Photo enthusiasts already pleased with the iPhone's generally superior camera can be forgiven for getting excited about the possibility of shooting photos in the higher-end raw file format.
Cypress Innovations on Wednesday released a new app called Digital Negative that might raise that very hope by offering a way to take photos that are stored in Adobe Systems' DNG format for raw photos. Alas, although the app does store uncompressed image data, it doesn't actually store the raw data taken straight from the sensor.
In the last few years, the iPhone has become one of the most popular digital camera devices in the world. Millions of photos are snapped every day and stored in a relatively easy-to-access folder. With no added security beyond the initial passcode you can activate for your phone, iOS is not exactly secure - especially if you lose your phone or someone gains access to it. Secret Photos provides an added layer of security for users that want to prevent a stranger or someone without permission from accessing their personal photos.
Secret Photos is a very simple app. The first … Read more
One of the more frustrating features of the iPhone and iPad is how hard it is to transfer images from a computer to the mobile device. If you're forced to use iPhoto, which can be unforgivably slow, it can take time and a lot of patience if you want to move a large number of photos from your Mac to your iOS device. That's what Photos Mate promises to resolve with its iPad and iPhone compatible photo transferring app.
The app is simple. Open it and you see a list of Available Devices. At first, the list will … Read more
Facebook is all about giving its users a one-stop-shop for all of their social needs, and Facebook Camera is another facet of that. The app lets you take pictures and immediately post them to your Facebook account. While it's not really necessary considering there are so many other ways to share photos on Facebook, it's fast and performed without a hitch.
Once you're logged in to Facebook Camera, all the photos in your News Feed from your Facebook friends appear on the screen. And just like any other status update or post, you can Like or add … Read more
Facebook released an update to its iOS app this week. Included in the change log was group-messaging enhancements, along with adding the ability for users to change their cover photos.
The feature was once in the Facebook iOS app, but was removed when Facebook released the completely native, revamped iOS app. Android users received a similar native update, and shortly after its release the ability to change cover photos was added.
You will only be able to change your cover photo using the iPhone app, not from your iPad. Perhaps Facebook is trying to help stop people from taking pictures … Read more
Photo Stream is a great way to view photos across your various iOS devices. Snap some shots on your iPhone and -- boom! -- thanks to Photo Stream, they can be viewed in full on your iPad. That's how I have been using Photo Stream to date, but I've overlooked a feature that makes it easy to share a Photo Stream album with anyone, Apple and non-Apple folk alike. From either your iPhone or iPad, Photo Stream includes a feature that will create a quick Web site with your photos, whose link you can share as you wish.… Read more
