Both of Apple's new iPhones don't hit stores until Friday, but apparently Christmas comes early in some places.
There's not too much to glean here since the inside packaging looks identical to last year's iPhone 5. Curiously enough, the first photos of the iPhone 5's packaging were posted about the same time last year, just before launch (to the day). … Read more

Photo Montage Free initially appears to be an effective app, but with numerous performance-related issues, it struggles mightily in execution. Designed to create montages with your photos, along with a number of editing tools, unfortunately the app often freezes up, buttons don't respond to your taps, and your changes can be lost if you don't agree to save images while in progress.
When you load Photo Montage you can choose to load images from your library, take new ones, download them from the Web, or open an existing montage. After some basic cropping and editing, you can drop … Read more
With InstantPhotoColor for Mac you can add color to black & white photographs, but the largely manual process makes this a tool better suited for adding splashes of color and not colorizing the entire image. You must choose each shade and add it manually with a brush, which adds more difficulty to the process than some will be willing to deal with.
The free program opens immediately after downloading and presents a small, bare-bones interface. The main window on the left is where InstantPhotoColor for Mac displays the current photo. It would have been helpful if the program offered a … Read more

Last week Apple made big claims about the photo capabilities of its new flagship phone, the iPhone 5S, and Monday was one of the first chances to see it in action outside of the company's press event.
Fashion brand Burberry used the phone -- which goes on sale this Friday -- to capture stills, videos, and celebrity snapshots at its Spring/Summer fashion show, which took place earlier today in London.
Modeling products in three dimensions can be a time-consuming process. It's easy enough for humans to identify the presence of 3D objects in 2D scenes, but extracting these with algorithms is tricky. A new system developed by a team of researchers from the Interdisciplinary Center in Israel and Tel Aviv University aims to simplify the process by using a technique to pull out 3D shapes and objects from regular photos.
The system is simple enough to be used and understood by almost anyone. To start with, the user traces around the object, defining its three dimensions. Then the outline … Read more
