500px fans may have been surprised last week when Apple pulled the app thanks to some controversial images. It seems that 500px has been revised and given the all-clear from Apple, and version 2.0.3 is now available on the App Store. 500px made two major changes to the app to make sure App Store requirements were met.
First, all nude photo searches are blocked. 500px maintains that artistic nudity is allowed on their website, however users will find it more difficult to search for these images on iOS. The second major change added a mature rating to the app, requiring that users installing the app are 17 or older.
Sharing photos from your iOS device over email is great, until you run into the built-in limitation that prevents selecting over 5 photos. This means that if you have a large number of photos to send via email, the iPhone will force you to send them in several emails with 5 attachments each.
Thanks to developer Mohamed Alaoui Mrani, iOS users can download Instamail Photos from the App Store and send unlimited photos in one message. The app is currently on sale, priced at $0.99 for a limited time. Of course, you can't go sending too many photos in a single email, because most service providers limit the size of email messages.
Incredible photographs from around the world are only an app away. 500px has officially launched an iPhone version of their highly acclaimed iPad app. Of course, the free portal to content from the 500px website has been optimized to take advantage of the larger iPhone 5 display.
500px version 2.0 features an all-new, designed from the ground up user experience made just for the iPhone. This includes the Flow timeline feature optimized specifically for mobile devices. Although this current version does not provide for photo uploads from the iPhone, the feature is in the works for future release.
Ever notice there's no timer on the iPhone Camera? Setting the iPhone up somewhere so you can run and be in the photo might not be the easiest thing, but it would be nice to know you have the option. Now thanks to the jailbreak tweak CamTime you can use the iPhone camera just like a point-and-shoot with a timer.
CamTime adds a timer button next to the shutter release, and simulates pressing this button when the time runs out. You can enter the number of seconds you want the timer to run before it snaps the photo. In fact, because it simulates this button you can even set a timer in seconds to delay the start of a video if desired.
Skype updated their iPhone and iPad apps to version 4.1 on Tuesday. The upgrade brings a new photo sharing feature, a few minor bug fixes and minor visual improvements. The photo sharing feature requires that both users are connected to Skype’s instant messaging service to work.
If sharing pictures of food is not your thing, Skype 4.1 is also supposed to improve the app’s battery performance, plus fix a bug related to Bluetooth and calls. Existing users can upgrade to version 4.1 starting today.
If you're one of the 80 million Instagram users who haven't freaked out and closed their Instagram accounts since the acquisition by Facebook, the iPhone app has been updated to 3.0. The latest version of the photo sharing software has several redesigned components and adds new features.
Although many alternatives to Instagram exist, the service remains highly popular for those with mobile phones. Visual tweaks and improved performance are just the beginning of what's been incorporated into Instagram 3.0. Infinite scrolling on photo feeds is now possible, and spam comments can be reported.
So you've decided to close your Instagram account and save your retro photos from the clutches of Facebook. Many users have enjoyed the creative filters on Instagram, which are known for giving the images an analog, film-like look.
The good news is there are many photography apps in the App Store with even better filters. Many of these photo apps are free and provide several options for sharing and showing off your pictures to friends. Here are 8 of the top alternatives to Instagram available on the iPhone.
A new security vulnerability on the Apple iPhone has been discovered that can expose photo albums stored on the device. Although this sounds like a dangerous breach of privacy there are several things that must happen before a complete stranger can view your pictures without entering a passcode. This is of course assuming you use a passcode to protect your data.
First of all, your iPhone must have iOS 5 or later installed. This adds the Camera shortcut icon to the home screen when the home button is double-pressed. Secondly your iPhone must fall into the wrong hands, with someone taking possession of your device who would care about finding and viewing your photos.
Thanks to a built-in feature of iOS 5, the iPhone can easily take photos without ever touching the display screen. You may already be familiar with the fact that pictures can be taken by pressing the up volume button on the side of the iPhone, much like the shutter release on a compact camera. This improves the picture taking experience on the iPhone, but can still shake the device.
Photographers looking to stabilize their cameras during shooting look to use a remote control, or a cable shutter release to snap the photo without touching the camera. iPhones come with a modern version of the cable release in the Apple Remote Earphones.
Apple continually strives to improve the iPhone's picture taking capabilities, and the iPhone 4 and 4S are no different. Maybe the impressive low light capabilities and high resolution photos are not the look some photography buffs enjoy. If the five-element lens in the iPhone 4S is too perfect for your tastes Holga has just the accessory for you.
Now you can transform your iPhone 4 or 4S into a toy camera, Holga style. The SLFT-IP4 iPhone lens filter kit fits like a normal case on your device, but gives you access to nine different retro special effects without using software.
