As our App of Day, all our regular readers know the trailer for this app will feature on every page of our site for a whole day. Just scroll to the bottom of this page to take a look.
Whether you are nostalgic, a photo purist, or have boxes of slides and negatives and have no idea what to do with them, HelloPhoto can rescue your film from dust.
Using the various functions of HelloPhoto, you can simply do the following:
• Use the light table function to view, sort, and photograph your slides and negatives.
• Use the light table’s adjustments to enhance your slides and negatives before photographing them.
• Use the camera to take photos of your slides and negatives, thus freeing them from obscurity and allowing you to share and post them.
Or you can get creative and really bring HelloPhoto to life!
Turn your film to digital by doing the following:
(To perform this specific feature of the app, you need two devices. See Notes at the bottom.)
1. Place your slide or negative on an iPhone or iPad in HelloPhoto’s light table mode.
2. Using another iPhone running HelloPhoto, take a picture of the slide or negative. Hello, photo! You now have a digital copy of your slide or negative!
• Show off your film pics.
• Email your newly digitized photos to friends and family.
• Post them on Facebook.
• Save your photos for sharing later on sites like Flickr, Twitter, or MobileMe.
