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.

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.

Artist Jonathan Marks Creates Exquisite iPhoneography Day After Day

image

You have to admire fine artist Jonathan Marks: every day for over two years he’s posted a photo to his Tumblr site that he’s taken with his iPhone. You can see quality in each photo, and clear evidence for his artistry. But he takes things a step further. For each photo, he posts both the original and then his version that has been tweaked for effect, exclusively using iPhone photo-editing apps. The differences are remarkable and give the viewer insight into how an artist sees things.

Take the following photo as an example. It’s a competent photo that shows off the ability of the iPhone’s camera, and shows his sensitivity to lighting and color.
