Using a mobile app to process a video is not uncommon. When the app you’re using only works one still shot at a time, though, it’s a tedious process. It’s also a long process. The result seems worth the effort, though, at least in this case.
Yup, that’s right, after a super brief beta period of only a few days, Prisma is now available for Android. The wildly popular iOS app has over 10.6 million downloads since its launch a short time ago.
Prisma shows no signs of slowing down with over 1.55 million daily active users and over 400 million photos “prismed”. Opening up the software to Android adds a huge chunk to their potential userbase.
Lightroom Mobile for Android has had some Raw support for a while now, at least when you’re using the phone’s built in camera, but now Adobe have broadened this capability, adding support for Nikon, Canon and other Raw formats to Lightroom Mobile for both Android and iOS.
Local adjustments have also been added, like those found in the desktop version of Lightroom, which is a very useful and welcome feature. We’ve also been the ability to embed copyright information into imported images.
When I first heard the phrase “dual cameras” used in relation to mobile phones, 3D is what first came to my mind. How disappointed I was to find out that it was nothing to do with recording videos or shooting stills in 3D.

As somebody who got back into film a few years ago, I’ve kept my eye on various apps that have spawned for iOS and Android. I’ve still not found anything that lets me do everything I need, but the Kodak app has proven to be occasionally helpful.

While the icon itself seems to have gotten more outgoing, the app has been cleaned down to a more minimalistic and muted layout, allowing you to concentrate more on the images you see scrolling down your screen.
Last week, Adobe accidentally leaked the details for its upcoming 2.0 update for Android. Now, it’s officially out and ready to be downloaded by Android users across the globe.

It’s official. Instagram has opened up multiple account support for almost everyone.
Anyone who has the latest version of the app, either on Android or iOS, should have the feature built into the application.
When Apple introduced its new iPhone lineup this past September one of the stand-out features was a display technology called ‘3D Touch.’
With the exception of the Huawei Mate S, Apple’s 6s and 6s Plus smartphones are the only devices to possess these touch-sensitive displays.
One of the first developers to take advantage of the new technology was Instagram, who brought 3D Touch capabilities to its iOS app in November 2015. Now, after a few months of trying it out on iOS, Instagram has brought it to Android with an update that effectively replicates the functionality without the actual display tech.[Read More…]
