Loving Instagram

I didn’t think I needed another iPhone photo app, but turns out I did. Instagr.am mimics other mobile photo-sharing apps, but it’s captured the appeal that comes from extreme minimalism. While you can use it to cross-post to other sites (Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr, Foursquare), the web-side is pared down to just the photo page. […]

Photoshop Content-Aware Fill Sneak Peek

Mar 25, 2010

Check out this video of a new content-aware fill feature by the Photoshop team. As anyone who’s had to retouch photos knows, this type of correcting and filling by hand is extremely time-consuming, or in some cases, almost impossible (eg. the last example in the video of “filling” the sky). Not sure that this feature […]

New Camera to Auto-document Your Life

New Camera to Auto-document Your Life

Oct 17, 2009

I’m excited to see this story about the next evolution of the SenseCam, which I wrote about a few months ago. A camera you can wear as a pendant to record every moment of your life will soon be launched by a UK-based firm. Originally invented to help jog the memories of people with Alzheimer’s […]

QuadCamera: Continuous Shooting With your iPhone Camera

QuadCamera is the the 4th release by Art&Mobile of their ToyCamera series and features continuous shooting. Just press the button, and it takes 4-8 serial shots to create one image in multiple dimensions and repetitions: a 4×2 portrait, 4×1, 2×2 landscape, and 8×1 landscape (as shown below). This is great for fast action and motion […]

Creating Panoramic Photos With Your iPhone

Creating Panoramic Photos With Your iPhone

Oct 22, 2008

One of the main reasons I use my iPhone is to take quick photos. Even though the 2 megapixel camera isn’t the highest quality, it’s the convenience and added iPhone functionality (eg. emailing) and the applications that I enjoy. One of my new favorite apps is Pano by Debacle Software (download from iTunes), which lets […]

Flickr Turns 3

Flickr Turns 3

Mar 5, 2007

It’s hard to believe Flickr has only been around for a few years. It seems like I’ve been using it much, much longer than three years. That’s testament to its lure, success, and the community that has sprung up around both the service and the lifestyle. Flickr is a seamless part of my digital life. […]

The other panelists include Bill Flitter of Pheedo, Greg Reinacker of NewsGator, and John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing. […]

“The Trip Up” is the title of Anousheh Ansari’s blog post from space. Ansari was the first the first civilian to blog from beyond Earth’s orbit.

Here’s the first 7.1 megapixel photo I’ve ever taken.  The first of many photos to come with my new Nikon Coolpix 7900 camera.  Max and I have been using a Coolpix 4500 for the few years and it’s been great, but I wanted something more compact (the 7900 weighs 5.3 ounces and fits in my […]

Barcode Building

Aug 12, 2005

I’ve always like the simplicity and functionality of bar codes.  In art school, I made a series of oversized bar code prints as rough posters and had a collection of various bar codes pulled from packaging and collected in one sketchbook.  So whenever I walk by this green building on Harrison during my walk to […]

Lunch in North Beach

Lunch in North Beach

Jul 2, 2005

North Beach is fine coffee, fresh italian cuisine, sidewalk cafes, and dreamy summer afternoons.  For me, it’s also the rare personal pleasure of spending time in the same neighborhood where Jack Kerouac read and wrote poetry. I love this city.

Palm Tree

Palm Tree

Jun 10, 2005

Walking up to Telegraph Hill and saw this dreamy view of the bay.  Sounds silly but I’m still struck by the palm trees, the blue sky and water, the breeze, and how Northern California it all is.  Everything feels fresh with the constant Pacific and Bay winds.  The sky is so blue that I don’t […]
