As the number of photos we take grows, the more space we need for storage. Apple has launched HEIF and HEVC, formats that could save you up to 50% of storage for photos and videos. They’ve launched it for the camera in iOS 11, and it’s supposed to replace JPEG and allow you to shoot twice as much photos without compromising the image quality.

Hi photo lovers, In the past two months, I’ve been doing a market research for my project, Photolemur. I looked for different tools in the area of photo enhancement and photo editing. I spent quite a lot of time on research and gathered quite a lot of feedback from the community on my initial findings.
I decided to share my huge list of photography tools and apps with the hopes that all these services might be useful for anyone involved with photography. Let me just put this here….
Computational imaging has given us some interesting and useful inventions so far, from fake bokeh to capturing the movement of light. This time, scientists have figured out how to take a clear image from as far as 28 miles (45km), regardless of the Earth’s curvature and the amount of smog in the air.
I’ve read The Onion headlines and McSweeney’s pieces that have knocked me off my chair. I can still remember staying up late during high school to watch Saturday Night Live sketches like “Change Bank,” or Dave Chapelle’s Killing Me Softly on HBO. I’m a person who can appreciate good humor and satire.
This is neither.
Because selfie sticks are so 2014, Apple is now turning to computational imaging for taking group selfies. Actually, for making them, since they will be composed out of individual selfies from different phones. Apple has filed a patent for an app that will allow everyone from the group to take a selfie they’re satisfied with, compose them into a single photo, and then add a background of choice. And if I may add – take “fake” to a whole new level.
Well, even though Light’s L16 wasn’t the critically acclaimed success that the hype hoped it would be, it looks like Light’s technology is definitely being taken seriously by the smartphone world. After some heavy investment from Leica, a partnership with Sony, and the new Nokia 9 PureView containing Light tech, Light has now announced a new partnership with Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi.
Light, the company behind the Light L16 camera which contains 16 sensors and lenses, has announced that they’ve teamed up with Sony to create the next generation of multi-camera smartphones. Well, we knew Light was working on something to do with phones, and now it looks like it’s official.
Chinese company Xiaomi is working on an algorithm that will improve low-quality images. The company wants to compete with Apple regarding smartphone photography, and it has just published a new paper on the AI network called “DeepExposure.” It uses machine learning to improve low-quality images by adding them detail while enhancing colors and brightness.
3D data creation is part of a growing trend in the use of computational imaging techniques within cultural heritage digitization shops. In particular, operational adoption of photogrammetry has been witnessed at such institutions as the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA), the Smithsonian, and the University of Virginia Library.
