Fantastic Review of Snapseed for iPhone & iPad at iMore

One of the easiest yet full featured photo editing apps for iPhone and iPad is Snapseed.  Snapseed allows you to adjust a photo in almost any way possible but doesn’t require that you have experience or familiarity with photo editing terms.  It is a great app and one I use regularly.

Over at iMore, Leanna Lofte posted a review yesterday of Snapseed and it covers the app in great detail.  She covers virtually every aspect of the app including the use of filters to change the look of a photo (from color to black-and-white for example) along with the huge array of tweaks and adjustments you can make to your photos.

Snapseed is a fantastic photo editor that’s powerful, yet easy to use. Snapseed is best for users who want to play around with adjustments, but who don’t understand (nor care to understand) how to use more advanced and professional tools. Snapseed makes it easy for anyone to beautifully and artistically edit their photos on their iPhone or iPad.

If you have been debating on spending the $4.99 for this universal app, give Leanna’s review a read.  I think you will find it to be a great source of information on why you should have this app on your iDevice.

Touchlook HD Icon

Touchlook HD for iPad 2 Gives Design Professionals a Sale

Touchlook HD, a hugely successful application available for the iPhone and iPod touch, has made photo editing available and accessible to a large and varied group of users. It is with great pride that Colortive – the geniuses behind the application and its development – are now broadening the audience as well as the amount that the application is able to do, by offering the application for iPad. Even better, for a limited time, the iPad application is available for an incredible sale price of $.99.

Since its inception, the application has been able to turn any iPhone or iPod touch device into a high-tech but easily Touchlook HD Screenshotaccessible editing studio. Given any photograph and a few minutes, the user could transform their picture into a work of art. Using geometric shapes like the circle, triangle, and rectangle, and easily manipulated elements like a sliding color bar, the user can maneuver and manage any number of components in a photograph. By changing the brightness, saturation, shadow, hue, mid-tones, and even vignette controls, the user is able to not only correct, but enhance and improve the pictures that they take.

Having the opportunity to use this application on the iPad is revolutionary; while the iPhone is a great way to utilize the app, the iPad opens up a whole new world of editing potential. The sensitivity of the app is user-adjustable, and the larger surface area allows the user to increase the sensitivity, therefore increasing the varying degrees of manipulability and the exactness of the results. In more general terms, being able to see the results on a bigger screen is both more helpful, and more gratifying as well.

Aperture Icon

How To Import Your iPhoto Library into Aperture in OS X

For most Mac users, the iPhoto application that has come with Mac’s since Leopard is more than enough for their photo library curating and editing needs.  But Apple offers a more comprehensive application to do this named Aperture.  Aperture, which is available in the Mac App Store for $79.99, brings a wealth of new editing features and version control that are not available in iPhoto.  It is designed for those who want serious editing capabilities the ultimate in fine tune control over the look of their photos.  You can get Aperture for Mac at this link. If you have been using iPhoto and have read the reviews and decided to make the plunge into Aperture, the first question that you will likely want an answer to is how to view your iPhoto library in Aperture.  Fortunately Apple has thought of this and the importing of photos from your iPhoto library into a new one in Aperture is straight forward.  In this How To I’m going to show you how do the import and also how to remove the default “iPhoto Original” Tag on all of your photos.

It is important to note a couple of things before we start.  First, this is not a review of Aperture! :-)  I assume that you have already made the decision to move to Aperture based on other reviews or your own needs.  If you are looking for a good review of Aperture, check out

Finder View of iPhoto Library on OS Xthe one on Macworld.  Second, make a backup of your iPhoto library before you begin the import process.  While your iPhoto library is essentially copied in what I’m outlining in this How To, it is always a good idea to have a backup just in case things go horribly wrong.

To start, make sure that that iPhoto is not running on your Mac and verify the location of your iPhoto library.  Unless you have changed the defaults
in iPhoto, your library should be in your Pictures directory.  This step is more for verification than anything else so you can make sure that you import the correct iPhoto library into Aperture.

Next, open Aperture.  If it is the first time you have opened it, the app will ask you if you want to use it as your default app for photo importing.  Once this is done, click the File menu and navigate to import>iPhoto Library…  This is where you will begin the import process of your iPhoto library into Aperture.
