Easily Turn Great Pix into Wall Art!

image

I have used a few of these services on the web (pix-to-art printing) and none offer anything so simple to use--with flexible and original mounting and pricing options--than those of Art.com. Whether you have an iPhone or not, you should check the site out if you want to turn your own shots into superb wall art. I often take my camera along on neighborhood strolls, and have grabbed a few lucky but stunning pix over the years (nature does the hard work) with only a simple P-n-S camera, and my friend gets amazing shots with his iPhone all the time (patient with a great eye). A few have turned out surprisingly well on canvas. Art.com has taken it to the next level, with an iPhone app called Photos to Art that will let you easily upload and order prints framed suitably for the office, or any room in your home...

Brief highlights:


If Sandy damaged your pictures, your iPhone may be able to help preserve them...

image

In recent days, you've probably seen and heard a lot about where I live. I live on Staten Island. About 20 fellow Staten Islanders were killed. Many neighborhoods have been destroyed. Some schools are still closed. The restaurant that my family visited on October 19 is gone. Sandy was not nice to us.

Volunteers have been coming to help with the clean-up. There's been plenty of criticism about the lack of electricity for thousands. [Fortunately, my power was turned on about after three days.] It's still difficult to get gasoline for the cars.



Instagram on the Web

One of the things that always bothered me about using Instagram was sharing images. Now, you can share your Instagram images easily online. If you have an account you can now, or you will be able to do it soon, view your pictures online. For example, my address is http://instagram.com/joelheffner. [My account became active earlier today.] They say that if you have an Instagram account it should be up and running within about a week. Check with Instagram about your privacy settings. It's a very welcome change...at least to me.

Funny Faces Camera makes a bold promise: No more dull photos!

Funny Faces Camera is a free photo app from Dear Future Astronaut AB which helps iPhone users make funny photos of their friends by using psychological sound effects.

Funny Faces Camera has just appeared on App Store for iPhone. After careful selection, the team from Dear Future Astronaut AB has chosen a set of 30 premium sound effects which are played just milliseconds before the photo is taken, thus surprising the persons photographed and capturing their reactions. The user can choose the intended result, whether they want to have people smiling on the photo or look confused.

Flex your artistic muscles with the Nomad Brush Flex stylus

image
I've written about Nomad's artistic brushes before but their newest line, the Flex series, adds a nice twist. As with all of their styluses, they use capacitive hairlike synthetic threads as a paintbrush would, but thanks to their conductivity, you can use painting apps, like ArtRage, with greater control. With the Flex line, you can add a second tip and flip the stylus around and have a thicker or thinner brush tip, depending on your needs.



MirrorCase and its companion app provide a useful tool for subtle video recording, or surveillance

image
I first got to preview the MirrorCase at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, and again at the New York CES Preview a few months ago, but now it's shipping and I've had a chance to use it firsthand.


The MirrorCase lets you lie your iPhone almost flat and point the camera at your object of interest, and record videos or take photographs.

Tiffen's powerful photo editing tools put Instagram to shame

image
I'm not a big fan of Instagram. It can be pretty obvious when a photo has been through an Instagram filter. But what if you really want to manipulate an image, perhaps to make it look like it came from an old film reel? You are going to want more fine grained (pun intended) control compared to Instagram.
