Well, it's a big gamer weekend for price drops we're seeing. So if you've got rain where you're at, it's a perfect weekend to stay indoors and give your thumbs a workout. If you're getting ready to go back to school, we've got a couple other apps for you too.
We write a lot about Instagram because it's pretty amazing. It's a fast and easy way to share great looking photos from our iPhones. We've written about how to order prints and a number of other things using your Instagram photos, but they aren't always cheap. And, worst of all, they aren't very instant. There's nothing worse than having to wait for all those photos to show up at your door. So, here's the easiest way to put the "insta" back into your Instagrams and print your own photos at home.
We're choosing to make 4" x 4" prints in this guide because they're easy to frame and because you can fit four prints to a regular sized page, getting you the most bang for your buck.
It's a shame that more app developers don't code with the iPad's big screen in mind, especially when the app in question revolves around photographs. Instagram has been around for nearly two years now and there's still no native iPad or universal form of the app. With all that screen real estate, it's a shame to have to run the iPhone version embiggened, trapped in portrait mode, just to see pictures of our friends' adorable offspring or recent meals.
Luckily, a bevy of third-party apps are available that offer a bit of a twist on the old iPhone photo sharing app. Here's a look at several such apps that are all grown up for the big screen.
Nearly lost among the excitement over a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Apple optimized all of its Mac apps for the amazing new screen. But one of them, Aperture, got a whole lot more than just Retina Display support this week.
A couple days ago, we told you all about Facebook's rather weak photo-sharing app, Camera. But what if you're looking for a decidedly more local solution to share your pics? Scalado, a Swedish imaging company with its technology already available in over half-a-billion phone cameras, has just released it's first iOS app, PhotoBeamer. While you'll find no bells and whistles, it is quite possibly the easiest way to mirror image from your iOS device to a larger screen.
Adobe Systems is having a big week, shipping Creative Suite 6 on Monday and Creative Cloud expected on Friday, but in-between they’ve quietly slipped Photoshop Lightroom 4 into the Mac App Store, marking their fourth title to land on Apple’s virtual store shelves.
Photographers are always looking for ways to geotag their images, and return7’s PlaceTagger has been one of the best methods on the App Store. The developer has now introduced an all-new version 2.0, rewritten from the ground up with native iPad support, iCloud sync and even a Mac version as well.
If you haven't yet gathered, we here at Mac|Life love Instagram. These days, it's pretty much exclusively how we take pictures--even when we're posting to Facebook and Flickr. But, despite how beautiful our photos look on our screens, we sometimes yearn for something a little more tangible. So, we print them. Luckily there are more than a just few services to print our Instagram photos. Here's how you too can print your Instagrams and turn them into beautiful works of art.
Despite Facebook's massive buyout and its rollout onto Android, we love Instagram. It's a fun blend of simple photography and social networking. But that doesn't mean there aren't some worthy alternatives to our favorite photo sharing service. While we can't see ourselves leaving Instagram anytime soon (none of these apps feature editing tools or filters, for instance), there are four social photo-sharing services worth checking out in the App Store.
Modern iOS devices take amazing photographs, but if you want to photograph something over a long period of time, then you’ll want an app to help you out. Time lapse photography can be stunning, and with the right tools, you can create your own. In this article, we’ll show you how to use Time Lapse HD on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to create a cool, automated time lapse.
