Should you blur people’s faces when covering protests o should you not? This has been a heated debate lately, and opinions are largely different. But if you’re in the “blur the faces” team and you use an iPhone, now there’s a simple way to do it. A new shortcut lets you blur faces and strip all metadata from images in just one tap.
The coronavirus pandemic has moved all teaching, learning, and test taking online. However, there have been some hiccups with the Advanced Placement (AP) exams for US high school students. Those with iPhones have been failing the test because the College Board’s portal doesn’t support HEIC image format.
The original iPhone SE was introduced in 2016. It was a low-cost option for those that didn’t need all of the features and size of the larger iPhone 6S/Plus models also available at the time. It had similar hardware inside to the 6S but had the form factor of the iPhone 5S.
People have been wondering if Apple was going to continue this line, now that they’ve expanded out their flagship model into multiple models, and Apple has now answered that question by announcing the new 2020 model iPhone SE.
Huge international companies pay close attention to their public image and there’s nothing strange about it. But Apple seems to has gone a tad too far. According to director Rian Johnson, the company bans movie villains from using iPhones in screen.
Smartphone gimbals are pretty commonplace today. There are countless models from companies like Zhiyun, Moza, Feiyu, and a million other brands. It feels like we’ve had them forever, although they’ve only really been around for about four years. And sometimes, even today, we need to figure out a way to live without them.
You’re not always going to have it with you when you see something cool and want to whip out your phone to grab a sequence. Or perhaps, as filmmaker Brandon Li mentions in this video, carrying a gimbal defeats the whole purpose of using your phone. Putting his money where his mouth is, this 10-minute video shows us how we can get gimbal-like shots without a gimbal.
Last week we shared that Apple is opening up their specs for using an external flash with iPhone 11. That means that you will be able to use an external flash with the iPhone native camera app. (This is different from, say, Lume Cube’s dedicated app, or Goodx A1).
Now, Power Bank maker, Anker, is the first to make a dedicated flash built on the lighting connector. Here is we know:
Although not common, flash support is something that quite a few people have been asking for with smartphones. Nobody’s seriously looking to replace their DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with phones, but being able to fire your strobes from your phone can be handy for things like behind the scenes shots.
According to 9to5Mac, though, new specs shared with manufacturers on Apple’s Made-for-iPhone (MFi) licensing programme show that the iPhone 11 may soon support for some degree of native 3rd party flash support.
Adobe has just announced a major workflow enhancement in Lightroom for iOS. Soon, all iPhone and iPad users will be able to directly import their photos into Lightroom on their device. Adobe Product Manager Tom Hogarty shares a sneak peek of the upcoming feature and make sure to check it out in the video below.
Long before Instagram, Hipstamatic was once the camera app to have on your smartphone. It’s taken a bit of a back seat to the social media platform giant, as well as other apps like Snapseed, Lightroom Mobile, and others since then, though. But now Hipstamatic has returned with a new free app; Hipstamatic X.
Perhaps not surprisingly, given the “X” moniker, the app is currently only available for the iPhone. It’s a “new and improved” version of their old classic.
During the Apple event last September for the new iPhone 11 models, Apple spoke about a new tech they call “Deep Fusion”. It’s a process whereby 9 images are combined using an AI engine in order to create a single image to present the most detail possible. There haven’t really been any good samples of it out there, though, until now.
The feature has appeared in the latest iOS 13 developer beta, and now lots of samples showing off its capabilities have started to pop up on the web – most notably on Twitter.
