Tip - Live Photos Effects

Date: 31st July 2018

Duration: 04:22

Show ref: SCOM0756

Live Photos are a great addition to the iPhone and you can further transform them using one of three effects: Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure.

I love using the Long Exposure effect on any running water or fountains. It makes a huge difference on your photos, without the need for specialist photo equipment or in-depth technical knowledge.

However, when out and about recently, I had a brain freeze and couldn't remember how to access the Live Photo effects - not everything in iOS is as discoverable as it should be. So I thought it would be a great topic for a refresher tip video!

Tip - Photolemur

We've covered many applications for enhancing your digital images before, but never one quite so simple yet effective.

Photolemur uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyse your photos and apply selective enhancements to make them pop. No need for a multitude of tweaks to different settings; Photolemur applies them automatically. All you can do is adjust the level of enhancement and that's the beauty of this simple app. It works in either standalone mode for single of multiple photos, or it can be used as a plugin for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as an Apple Photos extension.

In this week's tip video, Don takes you through the different ways Photolemur can be used and shows off some of its stunning results.

Tip - iPhone Photo Timer & Apple Watch

Date: 6th March 2018

Despite the best intentions, it can be really hard to hold your iPhone (or iPad) still when taking photos. Invariably, there is some stretching involved in reaching for the on-screen shutter button or volume controls.

In this week's tip I show you how to use the built-in timer to give you a few seconds to frame the shot and hold the iPhone as still as possible.

I also show you a great way to control the camera remotely using your Apple Watch. There's something really cool about seeing your camera display and controlling zoom and exposure, all from your wrist!

Tip - iPad Photo Frame

If you've upgraded your iPad or are just about to, why not repurpose your older device into a full-featured Digital Photo Frame?

Make use of iCloud Photo Sharing and create a shared Photo Album, then display it on the iPad in Guided Access mode. Gift it to friends or family, or keep it on your desk or shelf for a continuously refreshing photo display. You can even collaborate with friends and family and share photos to display.

This short tip shows you how to configure and set up your Digital Photo Frame.

Tip - Photos - Location & Privacy

Date: 9th May 2017

Duration: 04:23

Show ref: SCOM0628

The addition of location data to your photos and videos when using your iPad or iPhone is a tremendous boon. With it, you can search by location or even see your photos and videos on the "Places" map view.

But there may be times when you don't want to publish the location information with shared photos and videos.

In this tip, I demonstrate both switching off location acquisition when taking images, as well as stripping location metadata using a 3rd party tool called ViewExif.

Tip - macOS & iOS - Apple Photos - Keywords

Date: 7th March 2017

Duration: 05:32

Show ref: SCOM0610

Tip Video - We have covered Apple Photos in depth on ScreenCastsOnline, but in this short tip video, I want to revisit how to create and manage metadata with your iCloud Photo Library.

On both the Mac and iOS, Apple Photos is getting smarter by applying machine learning technology on the device, to automatically categorise photos. However, there are still instances when you want to add your own personal metadata in the form of titles, descriptions, keywords or location information.

In this tip video, I focus on adding title and keyword metadata via the Info Panel and the Keyword Manager.

Backing Up Photos

Show ref: SCOM0506

It’s great having your Photos stored in the cloud, but you still need a backup!

If you rely on just a single cloud service to keep copies of your photos, it’s not a complete solution. Without a secondary backup, either locally or on another cloud service, you may find deleted photos are permanently gone. 

In this episode I look at some solutions for implementing secondary local and remote backups for your precious photos.
