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.
Everyone with a camera loves taking photos on vacation. The prospect of sorting through hundreds of them when you get home, though, isn’t quite as much fun. However, with the iPad and Apple’s Camera Connection Kit, it’s amazing how much you can do on the move. Attach the CCK, plug in your camera or its memory card and pick out the good photos. You can then fix them with a few swipes in a simple program, and have them ready to email or share online instantly.
This is practically a super how-to week here at Mac|Life. If you've been missing the site this week, you've been missing a lot of tips and hacks that can make your life so much easier. Of course, that's not all that's been going down, as you'll see below the fold.
Addicted to Instagram? Yeah, join the club. Whether we're hiking giant mountains or watching television in bed, you can bet that something is being photographed into a Hipsterific photo. Like the ocean. Or that curtain. Or the cat at our feet. But how do we get our fix when our iPhones aren't around? We use it on our Macs, of course.
If you can’t quite imagine what it’d look like to leap from the tallest building in Malaysia or fly over the mouth of a volcano like Mount St. Helens, consider parting with $1.99 to give yourself perspective with the 360-degree, 3D video on im360, a universal app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Holy guacamole, it's practically October? October is tomorrow? Is this the fastest year ever, or what? As the leaves start turning and the days get shorter, it's comforting to know that some things never change -- like all the sales in the App Store.
OK, technically those do change; they change all the time! Which is why we tell you about them, in Friday's Price Drop column. This week we'll help you work out, pig out, and then bliss out with one of the funnest games of all time.
Apple's Photos app is functional enough, but lacking in features. Photo Gallery+ promises to give you greater control over how you manage and share your precious photographs and home movies -- although it comes with its own set of limitations.
Nik Software offers some truly remarkable photo post-processing software for the Mac, but it's not cheap, ranging in price from $100 to $200. So I'll admit, when I first downloaded Snapseed -- Nik's $4.99 universal iOS app -- I wasn't expecting a lot. I just didn't figure Nik would cram that much into such an inexpensive package. I was very wrong.
