Picking Up the Slack in The Seattle Times

No, this isn't a critique of the Seattle Times. In this case, I'm talking about Slack the communications software.

Sharing Photos in The Seattle Times

Do you find that you’re the “photo guy” or “photo gal” in many group situations because you happen to be the one taking the most pictures? (Spoiler: I do.) In my latest Practical Mac column for The Seattle Times, I go over the ways to share those photos with other people, from iCloud Shared Libraries ...

Getting (i)Cloudy at The Seattle Times

My barber said, “I have too many clouds,” and I immediately sympathized. iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive…I have files stashed in all of them. What surprised me when I set about to write this week’s column for the Seattle Times, is that I’ve so effortlessly moved so much of my work and personal data to ...

Photos Crash Course for macOS Sierra

Sometimes, it feels as if I’m a lone defender of Apple’s Photos app under macOS. Many people find it too different from iPhoto, or think it’s too basic (even though it’s actually quite sophisticated), or… I don’t know, they just don’t like change.

How Lightroom for iOS 2.4 Changes the Mobile Photo Landscape

Over at TidBITS, I write in more depth about the changes in Lightroom for iOS 2.4, and they’re doozies: Lightroom for iOS 2.4 Changes Mobile Photo Workflow. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, adding native raw file format support to Adobe’s mobile photo editor is a big deal, especially for people who are ...

View iOS Better with Accessibility Features

The ol’ eyes just aren’t what they used to be. After getting a new eyeglasses prescription and noticing how my mother’s iPhone text is permanently larger than normal, I decided to write my latest Seattle Times column about the many ways anyone can make their phone screens more legible. That ranges from simply enlarging text ...

Lightroom for iOS 2.4 Adds Raw and Gradient Selections

Adobe just released a significant update for the iOS version of Lightroom, bringing two features mobile photographers are going to love: raw import and editing, and linear and radial graduated adjustments. The first could change how we work with photos in the field, and the second is a feature I use more and more on ...

Raw Support Coming to iOS 10

Well now, this is interesting. PetaPixel spotted a feature in one of the slides during yesterday’s WWDC keynote that reads: “RAW photo editing.” We don’t yet know the details, but if iOS finally supports raw images, that could be a giant leap for mobile photo workflows. Raw is typically where the iPad has thrown a ...
