Hueless and Huemore Updated. Now With Uncompressed TIFF
Both Hueless and Huemore from curious satellite just got updates. There are only a few new features, but they should really please photographers who output high quality prints.

Both Hueless and Huemore are powerful, simple, fast, and elegant cameras.
Hueless, in my opinion, is the best black-and-white camera app available for iPhone. It’s a fast and easy way to take beautiful looking black-and-white photographs. It has a great user interface and a powerful set of tools that doesn’t get in the way of the shot.
Huemore is a color camera app that features the same great interface as Hueless. The app has excellent exposure, contrast and saturation control and lets you see the results of your changes instantly in the viewfinder. Although you can use the app’s tool for much more, having the ability to tweak color temperature in the viewfinder lets you make corrections on the fly. Using the presets is also like shooting with a warm or a cool film, depending on your preference.
Best of all, despite both apps’ powerful toolsets, when it comes time to shoot, the interface stays out of the way. Both apps are very nice to shoot with.
Hueless and Huemore Updates
Both Hueless and Huemore now feature toggles which let you save your files as a lossless TIFF or a maximum quality JPEG (100). Although the image compression on both apps defaults to JPEG Quality 90 (which is still very good), the new settings give photographers the choice of saving files with virtually no added JPG artifacts. The new settings can be turned on in the apps’ preferences in the iOS Settings app. You can also touch-and-hold the “H” button to switch between JPEG and TIFF formats on the fly.
The updates also feature an improved shutter response as well as various EXIF updates and mitigated ICC profile warnings.
The addition of high-quality image saves is a great, pro feature for photographers who prefer the highest quality, least compressed images in their workflow.
Both apps are $1.99 each.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular.
