How to share multiple photos and videos in one Instagram post

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.

This is a great way to post multiple photos and videos from an experience you want to remember. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create multi-item posts on Instagram. Read More

 

Camera Tools is an all-inclusive customization tweak for your iPhone’s Camera app

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 16, 2017

The Camera app is something that a lot of iPhone users will open and use every single day, sometimes multiple times per day. The convenience of a point-and-shoot camera app at your fingertips, anywhere you go, is nothing short of a technological miracle that comes standard on today’s modern mobile devices.

On the other hand, as Apple introduces more features into the Camera app with each iOS release, the interface becomes more cluttered with features you may or may not use, and that’s why a new free jailbreak tweak called Camera Tools by developer Justin Petkovic has just been released in Cydia.

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

 

Will iOS be next to mimic Snapchat?

By Steffen Reich on Feb 1, 2017

Everywhere you look today, large social media ventures are seemingly ripping a page out of Snapchat’s playbook. Instagram did it, Facebook’s Messenger app has done it, and we are about to witness Facebook itself clone Snapchat’s daily stories big time. As much as Apple are primarily known for their hardware, it goes without saying that this major shift in what consumers want from their applications (or: spike in perceived self-importance) will not have gone unnoticed by Apple’s software department.

Coincidentally or not, Snapchat-like features are spreading like wildfire at a time where Apple are beginning to talk more openly about the prospect of tying Augmented Reality into a future iOS version. Against the backdrop of Pokemon GO’s success with augmented camera images and Snapchat’s unrivalled popularity based on selfie filters, it is not far to seek that Apple will be looking to capitalize on such trends as well – and what better way to jump on the bandwagon than to provide built-in effects for the stock camera?

Like the sound of it or not, it has got to be a proposition almost irresistible to Apple, mainly for two reasons: the ability to deepen monetization of their in-house apps and chance to reel in a whole lot of new Gen-Y customers. Here’s why filters on iOS could happen in 2017. Read More
