We always like an app that makes life that little bit easier. MyPhotostream is a simple thing: it pretty much just displays your iCloud Photo Stream, so photos taken on your iOS devices pop up there shortly after being taken. Usually, seeing your Photo Stream pictures means launching iPhoto, and with big libraries on older Macs, that can be kind of a hassle. MyPhotostream lets you get at those photos much more quickly.
Tonality looks a lot like Intensify Pro but, in keeping with the monochrome tone, the entire interface is black and white, save for yellow highlights for selected tools and active banks of sliders. Like Intensify, it’ll happily edit JPEG and raw files with a 16-bit processing engine. Unlike its stablemate, however, the presets and sliders are geared towards one purpose. Open an image and it’s immediately rendered in black and white, the presets along the bottom of the interface showing thumbnails of the effects.
There are nearly as many ways to save photos to the cloud as there are camera apps in the App Store, but which one is right for you? Figuring it out can be a pain, but don't worry; we're here to break down the core features of eight of the top cloud-storage photo services (and warn you of any caveats to be aware of) including Adobe Revel, Shutter, Flickr, and more — and then decide which one is the best.

Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Last week, we covered how to change the format of screenshots captured by the built-in OS X screen capture utility. This week, we want to tackle the way screenshots are saved, specifically taking a look at where they're saved. By default, OS X saves these screen captures to your Desktop on OS X. We'll take a look at how to change this location to something more appropriate using a simple Terminal command. Let's get started.
We're still sad about the demise of Everpix, but part of the grieving process is moving on, and now that service's former competitors at Picturelife are offering a sweetheart deal for those still looking for a new cloud-based home for their photos.
Folders are a great place to store files and subfolders, but folders can also be smart about the content they’re storing. For instance, Dropbox can whisk files stored in its folder into the cloud — so why can't you do something like this with any folder? Well, as it turns out, you can, and all you need is a simple script cobbled together in OS X’s automation tool, called Automator. Continue reading, and we’ll show you how to use Folder Actions to turn regular folders into smart-ified folders with pizazz.
If your eyes can't stand the sight of a mutilated iPhone 5 after it's been savagely attacked without mercy, we urge you to look away or jump to the next post. Somehow, this ruthless attack is even worse than those guys who blend gadgets just for fun.
