Instagram on the Web

image

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.



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.



Use Streamweaver to effortlessly stitch together camera angles!

You and your friends are at the game, and a fly ball sails up over your section. You and 2 of your buddies capture hilarious clips of another friend dashing and clawing his way through the crowd to the abandoned level above to retrieve the trophy. After the game, you compare the individual videos thinking how cool it would be to be able to stitch together the different angles side-by-side into one super funny production. Now you can, and it's easy and free, using Streamweaver... Full PR about this excellent startup effort follows.



What's Next? You Ain't Seen Nuthin' Yet... [on the evolution of Apple]

image

 

 
With all the chatter in the blogosphere, about new products soon to be released, and patent battles being fought on all fronts in the courts of law, I think it's important to keep in mind the old expression: "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!" Truly, hasn't this week been a great example of that.
 
With the court cases bringing out details Apple would just as likely have preferred to keep private, we have been granted a rare insight into the evolution of products in the Apple iDevice chain, as well as having been given glimpses into what Apple had in mind, in prototype form, two years ago.
 
That said, can you imagine what Cupertino has in store for us in say, 5 years? That's not that long. Think about it. Within 5 years, devices and functions that are now, only in prototype/patent form, may very well be seeing the light of day. It's not for nothing that Johny Ive says that the products Apple is working on now, are some of the best, most exciting products Apple has ever invented!



Make a splash with Color Splash Studio

image

In the good old days, I used to edit photos of the kids, turn them into black and white images, and restore some color in a few select areas. I probably could have made a business of it. Now, you can do it on your iPhone or iPad in a few minutes. But change is a good thing, and so is Color Splash Studio from MacPhun. MacPhun has had a popular app for the Mac for a while, so it's nice to see iOS users get some loving. I just received my new MacBook Pro with Retina display, so I thought I would celebrate by editing this photo from last week's WWDC event when I saw Apple's Phil Schiller introduce the new MacBook.
