  • Lens Distortions is a slick effects editor

    March 11, 2016 0
    I have to say the name, Lens Distortions, may lead an interested buyer in another direction, but the app does an excellent job of adding optical effects and fog to any image, giving you a great deal of control of how your image will turn out. The app is free, but there are a variety of add-in purchases that will give you more options. Unlike a lot of apps that give you computer generated effects, the effects in Lens Distortions have been created with optically captured elements, including real sunlight and haze. As a result, your edited images look quite [Read more]
  • POST: Adobe updates its Social Photo App

    March 10, 2016 0
    We took a look at Adobe Post (free with in-app purchases) late last year. It was an intriguing piece of software for creating graphics based on photos. It has nice tools for fitting text over photos, and allows you to create some pretty stunning visuals. Now, Adobe has addressed some of the weak spots in Post, and they have finally eliminated dependance on square formatted (Instagram) photos. The app now supports posting to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, as well as letting you choose the aspect ratio from many options. There is also a clever auto re-size function, that lets you [Read more]
  • Adobe improves Lightroom for iOS. Now supports full-res editing.

    March 2, 2016 2
    Adobe continues its march to let photographers do sophisticated editing on their iPhones or iPads. Today, Adobe released version 2.2 of Lightroom for iOS, with many improvements, most notably full resolution output. Adobe is a bit behind the curve here. Photographers certainly want full resolution output, and it should have been offered in the first iOS version. Most of the popular iOS apps support this, so I’m happy to see Adobe get this oft-requested feature baked into the software. I think it will result in much faster uptake from pros and serious photographers. Other features include 3D touch support in [Read more]
  • Western Digital My Passport Wireless should appeal to traveling photogs

    February 29, 2016 0
    When I’m traveling and taking photos both on my iPhone and DSLR I have a problem. That’s how to safely back up what I’ve shot, without having to take a laptop with me. My MacBook Air is pretty light, but I only have a 128 GB hard drive, and that’s not enough room to download lot’s of images. I also want to keep my iPhone photos downloaded, but when I’m shooting landscapes in the wild cell service is not always available. One really nice solution is the Western Digital My Passport Wireless hard drive. I can easily transfer photos from [Read more]
