Send random GIFs, photos and quotes to friends blindly with Rando, a new iPhone app

An interesting new app by David Barnard (from Contrast, maker of Launch Center Pro) and friends is hitting the App Store today: Rando. It’s a straightforward — albeit strange — concept.

You choose to send a GIF, a quote or a picture (from your Photo library). You then choose a recipient contact and send them a random piece of media. You can even risk doing this completely blindly: the app will blur out the content so you can’t see it until its been sent to a friend.

You can trick your brain into seeing color in this black-and-white photo

Black-and-White Photo Color Trick

Have you ever heard the phrase: "Your eyes are playing tricks on you"? It's often used in a metaphorical context, but in fact, your eyes do have the capacity to convince you that you're seeing something that isn't actually there. If you'd like an illustrative example, just watch the following clip from the BBC Four series Colour: The Spectrum of Science.

Macphun debuts Creative Kit 2016, six Pro photo editing apps with OS X Photos plug-ins

macphunck2016

Macphun, maker of elegantly powerful photo editing tools including Tonality, Noiseless, and FX Photo Studio, has announced the impending release of Creative Kit 2016 — a bundle of 6 of the company’s Pro apps with 4 bonus items, collectively available at a pre-order price of $89.99. Creative Kit 2016 includes:

Noiseless CK (reviewed here) and Tonality CK (reviewed here), separately capable of eliminating various types of noise from images, and converting color images into beautiful black and white versions — both highly impressive, as our reviews discuss;

FX Photo Studio CK, a filter, frame, and brush-based photo editing tool that lets you convert simple photos into pieces of art; and

Snapheal CK, Focus CK, and Intensify CK, apps to erase unwanted items from photos, add lens effects such as blurs, or enhance subtle details in your images, respectively…

All of the CK versions are renamed from Macphun’s earlier “Pro” versions, and include features above and beyond their predecessors. For instance, batch processing is now available in Noiseless, Tonality, Intensify, and FX Photo Studio, along with seamless sharing of edited images across all six apps, and a unified installer. The apps can be used as plug-ins for OS X Photos, Aperture, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe Lightroom, as well as in standalone form.

The Creative Kit 2016 pre-order bundle includes a duplicate photo-finding app called Snapselect, two eBooks, a photography training video, and additional textures for three of the apps. A demonstration of the tools can be seen here ahead of the bundle’s October 15th release.

Apple gives new look at Campus 2 construction progress in updated aerial photo

Campus-2-Aug-31

In an updated aerial photo published today, Apple gives us our latest look at construction progress on its new ‘Campus 2’ building in Cupertino.

In the photo, we get a closer look at new developments on the main building, as well as the surrounding campus including a planned 1,000 seat auditorium, 300,000 square foot R&D facilities, a parking structure and other buildings separate from the main circular structure. The photos were published to the City of Cupertino’s webpage tracking progress and road closures on the project for the public.

Apple hasn’t updated its planned general project schedule on the City of Cupertino’s website and still plans to complete building construction on Campus 2 by the end of 2016 when it can begin to move in approximately 13,000 of its employees.

We’ve been keeping track of construction progress on Campus 2 with the latest photos, news, and drone flyovers in our timeline here.

Instagram’s new Layout app automatically generates photo collages

Layouts-Instagram-01

Instagram today released a new app called Layout that lets users easily stitch together multiple photos by automatically generating layouts to make a collage of sorts.

When you open Layout, we automatically show you previews of custom layouts as you choose photos from your camera roll. To make it easier to find the photos you want, we’ve also added a Faces option that shows you all the photos in your camera roll that feature people.

While the app will suggest custom layouts for your photo collage, you can also customize the photos with editing controls for layout, sizing, flipping, and rotation.

Instagram also highlighted a feature of the app called ‘photo booth’ that will countdown and snap multiple photos that are automatically stitched together into a collage.

Layouts-Instagram-02

The new Layouts app from Instagram is arriving on the App Store today for iOS.

Apple shares updated aerial image showing Campus 2 construction progress

Campus-2-cupertino

Just after sharing our latest drone flyover video of Apple’s under construction “Campus 2” in Cupertino this weekend (this time in 4K), Apple today shared an updated aerial shot of the campus.

The shot shows early progress being made on the structure of the main building and other buildings on the campus as well as earthwork and greenery on the surrounding property.

The City of Cupertino’s website, which tracks construction and traffic updates related to the Campus 2 project for locals hasn’t changed the project schedule that still calls for building construction to wrap up by the end of 2016.

Apple has recently opened a number of smaller satellite offices in Sweden, Seattle, and Cambridge, Englandbut it expects its new 176 acre Cupertino campus to hold around 12,000 of its employees when construction is complete.

Check out the latest drone flyover video of the Campus 2 site (in 4K!) from over the weekend.

The $800 Camera I Didn’t Use To Share My Hawaiian Vacation Photos

The $800 Camera I Didn't Use To Share My Hawaiian Vacation Photos

My wife loves technology. Hell, she spotted the job posting that landed me my first tech writing gig. She also loves sharing snapshots with friends. So when I told her that the Sony RX100 III could sling amazing selfies to Instagram with a tap of her phone, she was understandably stoked. When we packed our bags for a week-long vacation to Maui, it was the only dedicated camera we took along.

Purported 4.7-inch iPhone 6 LCD bracket shown in new photo

iphone66

A new photo posted to Apple.Club.tw shows off what is claimed to be the LCD and home button bracket for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6. We’ve already gotten a look at several parts of the unannounced smartphone in recent leaks, from the sapphire crystal glass to the front of the shell in both black and white. Yesterday we got a look at the back casing for this device as well.

These aren’t the first such leaks in recent months. We’ve seen other photos of the front and back of the 4.7-inch phone from last month. The part shown in this new photo seems to fit with those components.

The LCD for the 5.5-inch model of the phone has also been photographed, though leaks regarding the larger version seem to be much less plentiful than the 4.7-inch. Some rumors have indicated that difficulty with production could lead to delays with that model. New details about the device’s processor emerged today, and earlier this month new information about the phone’s battery revealed that it may not see the boost many people were hoping for.

KGI: 4.7″ iPhone’s camera may not support optical image stabilization, 5.5″ likely will

iPhoneSchematicsScale

A new research note from KGI indicates that the 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 6 won’t support optical image stabilization due to constraints in the production of VCM suppliers. The larger 5.5-inch version is expected to support the feature, while the smaller device will employ a cheaper motor that’s similar to the one found in the iPhone 5s.

Rather, we predict it will use a middle-mount type of open-loop VCM updated from the one used in the existing iPhone 5S. The 5.5” iPhone 6 is more likely to be equipped with OIS VCM due to lower estimated shipments and the need for more product features to differentiate itself from the 4.7” iPhone 6.

The difference will reportedly be one of the factors that sets the two devices apart, lending further credence to the idea that these will not simply be two internally-identical devices with different display sizes as is currently the case with the iPad its “mini” counterpart.

That’s not to say that the 4.7-inch phone won’t see improvements to image quality. The new motors are expected to allow for improved focus time and use power more efficiently than the design used in the iPhone 5s. Even with this concession, KGI still expects the iPhone 6′s picture quality to lead the market:

Compared with conventional open-loop VCM, closed-loop VCM keeps records of focus points, enabling it to produce better quality pictures, focus faster and save power. Nonetheless, there are many factors that affect picture quality, and VCM specification is just one of them. Therefore, we believe overall picture quality of the 4.7” iPhone 6 will lead its peers’.

Both models of the iPhone 6 are expected to enter production next month, as recent hiring frenzies at manufacturing partners seem to confirm, and will be publicly unveiled this fall.
