Photo Slide Stream iPad App Review

image

Photo slide stream is a nifty iPad application that allows you to display your pictures as a slide show or gives you the ability to manually swipe through your photos. Photo slide stream pulls pictures from multiple sources - Facebook, your camera roll and albums, Picasa photos, and Twitpic (commonly used with Twitter accounts.)



Don't Get Dizzy

 

360 Panorama ($.99) http://occipital.com/360/app 

Capturing panoramas are now easier than ever! Just open the app, tap the screen and pan your phone in any direction. Your panorama gets stitched together as you go. When you're done, you can instantly save your panorama or share via email, Twitter, or Facebook. 

In real estate, we used to pay hundreds of dollars to have this done for virtual tours and we would have to wait days to get it back. Now it can be done and on a website before we leave the house.



The old days are back...sort of!

Many years ago, when I was a wedding photographer, I used a Hasselblad. I loved the 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 square format. Although many iPhone apps allow you to create a square image, I finally found one that does exactly what I want it to do. As the developer puts it, "If you find other camera apps over-fussy (and their photographs annoyingly oblong) then 6x6 is the app for you." It allows you to create color or black & white pictures. You shoot like you were using the old Hasselblads. It's like going home again. Gotta go...I'm taking pictures with the 6x6 app.



Creating Unique Watermarks on your photos -- iWatermark - iPhone/iPad App

image

Sometimes I'll take what I think is a really good photo and want to share them on my social sites, but have in the back of my head I'd like to protect them, just in case I decide to use the photo in a business project down the road. I used to think - well -- I'll have to take it over to Photoshop and create a watermark to project it. I might be a bit later to the game, but there is a wonderful app that is so much easier than using Photoshop -- iWatermark by Plum Amazing.



It's all in the dots...

When you combine simple with black and white you get a bunch of dots. When the dots are put together, you've got an interesting image using Dot Sketch. As soon as I saw the description of the app I thought of the sunflower. I hoped that it would capture the sunflower's elegant simplicity. I think it worked. How about you?



Play with your Photography!


The iPhone and some well-selected apps can inspire a world of creative play.

I'm a professional photographer and have been using a high megapixel digital camera for years. I have to admit that the idea of using the iPhone's 5-MP camera—with no lens attachments—to capture images was hard to imagine at first. Then I saw some iPhone images taken by other photographers and decided to give it a try. I purchased the iPhone 4 in December 2010 and never looked back!

Visual Design On the iPad

Professional-level apps for the serious artist and designer

The work of iPad screen artists is absolutely stunning; it's hard to believe that such imagery was created with a finger, an iPad, and a few apps.

We all have some experience using our fingers as a drawing tool. Our first introduction may have been fing er paints, poster boards or even drawing on wet sand. As we hone and refine our talent, we extend our skills with pencils, makers and brushes. Reverting back to finger drawing can be uncomfortable at first, but our early instincts quickly resurface, and even the most stubborn of us end up embracing the iPad's touch interphase.


iPad art apps usually fall into two categories: amateur and professional. Let's take a look at the best professional-level, visual design apps on the iPad.

There's Never Been a Better Time to be a Photographer!

Blue Umbrella-Before

There's never been a better time to be a photographer! Well, maybe not for those trying to earn a living from it. Almost everyone has a camera these days, many of which are capable of producing high-quality images. And the fact that high-quality cameras are built into the iPhone and other smartphones means that people carry their cameras around with them to capture images as the inspiration hits them. Finally, editing digital photos is now much easier thanks to a variety of apps available to PC, Mac, and of course, iOS users.
