Mobile Photography & Art – Tip of the Day – Set Up An Alternative Face ID in iOS 12


We are re-igniting our Tip of the Day section and we have a great one here that you may not be aware of yet. With iOS 12 it’s now possible to set up an ‘alternative appearance’ for unlocking your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max or XR. Previously, only one facial id could do this. This maybe a useful feature if you need to unlock your child’s device, or perhaps if you share a device. Whatever the reason, here’s how you do it:

By the way, if you’d like to read our previous tips, please go here.

Apple iPhone Xs Camera Review


We’re delighted to republish our good friend, Austin Mann’s camera review of the Apple iPhone Xs today. He took a trip to Zanzibar, the images are gorgeous. In this review, Mann gives his first impressions, his thoughts on the new Image Signal Processor (ISP), vertical panoramas in the iPhone Xs as compared to the iPhone X, perks and perils of computational photography, the updated Portrait Mode and interesting discoveries with the app, Halide’s new technical readout information. Don’t miss this! (foreword by Joanne Carter).

If you prefer to read the original article on Mann’s own website, just go here.

Far and away the most significant camera update in the iPhone Xs is its new Smart HDR capabilities. Powered by the A12 Bionic chip, in the picture above the iPhone Xs is able to capture  the dark shadows of the rock while maintaining strong detail in the sunlit clouds.

I’ve never worked with a camera that can balance light like this—not even close.

See this photo below of the sailboat backlit by the sun. With a traditional camera, we’d either lose total detail in the shadows and maintain the highlights of the sky or we’d blow out the highlights in the sky and maintain detail in the shadows of the boat. Previously we couldn’t capture both in one frame (and merging multiple exposures in a fast moving scene like this wouldn’t work, either).
