Like Captain Ahab from Moby Dick, we relentlessly seek our own white whale: A way to curate digital photos on the Mac, sync them to the cloud, and make the whole collection accessible from iOS. All of the services we’ve caught in our net thus far have been tossed overboard, but another has now surfaced on the horizon. Picturelife may not completely live up to “white whale” status, but it’s definitely worth harpooning. With the right subscription plan, we can upload even a massive library to the cloud (with a few caveats), complete with automatic organization and duplicate detection while backing up images stored across multiple social networks.

That’s all changed with this year’s debut of a phone-specific version, but are digital artists ready to create on a palette that fits in the palm of their hand?
The great Twitter vs. Instagram battle of 2012 rages forward. While Twitter has removed Instagram cards from its service, Instagram decided to nix in-stream Instagram photos all-together. But just moments ago, Twitter has revealed an update to its iOS and Android apps which allows users to filter images right within Twitter itself.
It hasn’t been quite a full year since Adobe last released a new version of its consumer-centric image editor, Photoshop Elements. During this time, the company has worked hard to incorporate more code from its big brother, and the impressive results are available now.
There are many apps available for iPad photo enhancement, but few of them come with the pedigree of Tiffen, a company practically synonymous with optical filters for cameras. Can the company’s digital equivalent live up to the same storied reputation?
