We have decided to launch a new intimate style of interview into TheAppWhisperer – the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website. We feel it is important that our community feel close to each other, as it is this support that helps us to nurture one another, gain confidence and continue to grow.

This is our sixteenth interview, to read the others, please go here. Today, we are publishing this beautifully profound, comprehensive cultural interview with talented mobile artist M. Cecilia São Thiago who along with virtue of her inspirational imagery, attempts to reconcile time, as understood in science, with time as we live it, in every day life. Stephen Hawking famously argued questions, thus “what is the nature of reality? How can we understand the world in which we find ourselves?” traditional questions for philosophy. In Thiago’s imagery and text, I sense an overriding willingness to sacrifice physics and mathematics  to uphold an intuitively satisfying understanding of the phenomena of life itself. Let her art guide you, as a companion for life.

Apple unveils groundbreaking new technologies for app development

Share

Yesterday, 3 June 2019, Apple unveiled several innovative technologies that make it dramatically easier and faster for developers to create powerful new apps. SwiftUI is a revolutionary development framework that makes building powerful user interfaces easier than ever before. ARKit 3, RealityKit and Reality Composer are advanced tools designed to make it even easier for developers to create compelling AR experiences for consumer and business apps. New tools and APIs greatly simplify the process of bringing iPad apps to Mac. And updates to Core ML and Create ML allow for more powerful and streamlined on-device machine learning apps.

“The new app development technologies unveiled today make app development faster, easier and more fun for developers, and represent the future of app creation across all Apple platforms,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “SwiftUI truly transforms user interface creation by automating large portions of the process and providing real-time previews of how UI code looks and behaves in-app. We think developers are going to love it.”

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Using the iPhone Portrait Mode and SnapSeed Portrait Editor

Share

It’s great to be back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial for TheAppWhisperer community! This video explores the 1-2 knockout combination of the iPhone’s Portrait Mode with SnapSeed’s Portrait editor tool.

This video focuses on editing images taken with the dual lens iPhones. In this case the portraits were made with the iPhone XS Max, but any of the dual lens iPhones from the 7 Plus to the X can be used. In fact, you can use SnapSeed’s Portrait editor on any portrait, not just those taken with dual lens cameras. In this video, editing occurs in both the iPhone photo editor, and in SnapSeed’s Portrait Editing tool.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Select a Single Video Frame with Video2Photo

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

In this seven minute video I share the iPhone-only app, Video2Photo by Francis Bonnin. This simple and easy to use app lets us extract a single frame from a video and process it as we would any photo.

Why is this great?!?

Because now we can record sports, our pets, our kids, dancers – any fast moving subject – then select the single frame that best captures the action. And the quality of the single image is comparable to photos taken with the native camera or other camera apps, so quality is not compromised.

Take a look at my video below:
