By Christian Zibreg on Feb 23, 2017

Instagram now lets you share up to ten photos and videos as a single post on the photo-sharing service. These types of posts appear in the Instagram feed with only the first item shown, but can be swiped through carousel-style to reveal additional photos and videos.

Snapseed now gives you precise control over brightness levels and colors

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 2, 2017

Earlier this week, Google’s free image-editing app Snapseed was refreshed with a new tool for adjusting brightness and color levels precisely. A pair of under-the-hood tweaks is included, too. Snapseed is part of my iPhone photography toolkit and while I’m fond of its simplicity, I wish I could say the same for the app’s imprecise slider-based controls.

With Snapseed 2.15 for iPhone and iPad, adding drama to your photos has become a lot easier than before.

That’s because the new curve-based editing gives you precise control over things like contrast, brightness and color intensity in a given image. Read More

In this post, I will show you how to turn your Live Photos into Boomerangs in your Instagram stories. Read More

FabFocus kinda brings Portrait Mode to other iPhones

By Andrew O'Hara on Oct 27, 2016

Portrait Mode was on of the standout features of the iPhone 7 Plus. It intelligently uses both cameras in tandem to create a 3D image map of your subject, then in real time, applying a blurring/bokeh effect to the background of your photo. That’s something would normally require a high-end DSLR with a wider aperture lens to achieve. While the result wasn’t as good as a professional camera, it is a great effect with promising results. Since Portrait Mode does require the two cameras, anyone without an iPhone 7 Plus was left out of all fun. Enter FabFocus. Read More
