Welcome back to our forty sixth post in our new section Tickle Your Fancy.

Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

New Photography App – Google Photos and It’s Amazing!

Share

Google Photos allows you to organise and store all of your images, across all of your devices for a lifetime, literally. They’re automatically backed up and synced, so you can have peace of mind that your photos are safe, available across all your devices.

With Google Photos, you can now backup and store unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free. They maintain the original resolution up to 16MP for photos, and 1080p high-definition for videos, and store compressed versions of the photos and videos in beautiful, print-quality resolution.

Google Photos automatically organizes your memories by the people, places, and things that matter. You don’t have to tag or label any of them, and you don’t need to laboriously create albums. When you want to find a particular shot, with a simple search you can instantly find any photo—whether it’s your dog, your daughter’s birthday party, or your favorite beach in Santa Barbara. And all of this auto-grouping is private, for your eyes only.

The app can also help you quickly enhance photos and combine them in new ways to help you relive your life’s moments. In one tap, get instant adjustments tuned to the photo’s color, lighting, and subject to make each photo look its best. Press the “+” button to create your own collages, animations, movies with soundtracks, and more.

If you swipe to the left, you’ll open the Assistant view, where we’ll suggest new things made with your photos and videos, such as a collage or a story based on a recent trip you took. After previewing the creation, you can choose to keep, edit, or discard it.

iOS Photography App – Snapseed Brings Grunge Back!

Share

The previous update to Snapseed brought with it huge controversy as the Grunge effect had been removed. Well, now it’s back!  This update by Google to their uber popular photography editing app also adds selective advanced functions such as copy/paste and hide control points, improved look in HDR Scape, the saving option “Export” saves a new copy of the image without embedded editing information and some serious bug fixes.

Snapseed is free and of course this is a free update – click here to download/update.

The image below demonstrates the Grunge effect.
