Sonny Dickson, which is a frequent leaker of all things Apple, on Wednesday posted a rather extensive gallery of what appears to be the front panel of the iPad 5.
Up until recently Facebook photo albums have always been curated by the album's owner. On Monday Facebook announced it's starting to roll out a new shared photo albums feature. The new feature allows users to add contributors who can then add photos to the album themselves.
You'll know you have the new feature when you view one of your current albums and see a pop-up alerting you your account is ready to begin sharing albums. Sharing an album with your friends is as simple as clicking on the Make Shared Album button.
If you're creating a … Read more
Group-photo-sharing app Cluster is a worthwhile app, even if you don't envision yourself sharing photos with a group. That's because in addition to letting you easily create group photo albums to which all members can contribute, the app also does an admirable job of organizing the mess that is your iPhone's Camera Roll.
After installing Cluster, you'll need to sign up for an account via Facebook or e-mail. Once you have signed up, you can then create a group album -- a cluster, if you will -- organized by event or topic. Choose event and you'… Read more
Apple released an update Thursday that lets its Mac operating system handle raw files from Canon's new EOS 70D SLR, some new high-end compacts, and an older medium-format camera, the Pentax 645D.

Canon EOS 70D
Leica M Monochrom
Nikon Coolpix P330
Olympus Stylus XZ-10

Frujuici's Juici Up Ur Photo with Graffiti is a unique, fun-to-use app for creating wall art out of your images. It doesn't do a lot, but for the things it does, it does them very well.

When you load the app, the first step is to choose or take a new image. Just about any image will work, although … Read more
Photo Frames. Free is a poorly-designed app with a number of bugs and restrictive trial limitations that make it nearly impossible to get anything meaningful done. From the process of loading an image to the overabundance of ads onscreen and the lack of usable sharing features, the app is bogged down by both design flaws and performance problems.
When you open the app for the first time, you can choose to take a photo, load one from your library, or choose a frame. Each of these items is under an unmarked menu item, and the save and e-mail functions are … Read more

Depending on who you talk to, Frontback, an iPhone app for snapping a pic from both your front and back cameras, is either the next novel idea in mobile photography or something too basic, too obvious to make it as a standalone app.
Launched one month ago, the Frontback app is exactly as it sounds. The application, which has been downloaded around 200,000 times, walks you through a three-step process where you take a pic with your back-facing camera, then one with your front-facing camera, and then save or share the composite image with friends or followers.
Simple though … Read more
