Google Releases Snapseed for Android, iOS Version Now Free

When Nik Software was acquired by Google back in September, one of the prized catches — besides Nik’s impressive suite of high-end photo editing software — was Snapseed, a highly popular photo editing app for iOS. Many people suspected that Google was gearing up to fight more directly with Instagram, now the Facebook-owned 800lb gorilla in the mobile photo sharing space.

Whether or not that was the motivation, it certainly seems like the case now: Google today launched Snapseed for Android, and has also made the app free for both platforms.

Manga-Camera is Like Instagram Filters for Japanese Comic Lovers

There’s an iPhone camera app generating quite a bit of buzz, and it’s not Instagram or Camera+. The new rising star is Manga-Camera, a fun app that’s been downloaded like hotcakes in recent days (okay, we made up that expression). It has been downloaded over a million times in just the past week, and is currently the number one most popular app in the Japanese App Store.

The app is similar to Instagram filters, except instead of making your photos look like they were taken with a retro or toy camera, it makes them look like they were drawn by a Japanese manga artist.

CheatSheet Instantly Displays Keyboard Shortcuts for Mac Apps

Using keyboard shortcuts while editing your photos can save you loads of time, and cheat sheets are a good way of learning them. If you’re too lazy to print one out or save one as an image on your computer, there’s an app called CheatSheet that’s designed just for you. It’s a free Mac App that runs silently in the background. Whenever you hold down the Command (⌘) key for ~3 seconds, it brings up a complete list of command shortcuts offered by whatever app you’re currently using. We’ve tested it and it works fine for Photoshop, though we wished that it also included non-Command key shortcuts as well.

SynchroCam Connects Two Smartphones for Synchronized Photos

The future of consumer photography could very well be with new sensors, or more compact interchangeable lens cameras, or 41-megapixel smartphones; but why not cameras that are wirelessly tethered together? Thats what SynchroCam can do, and for a free app it’s pretty cool.

Using the app you can connect two iOS cameras (ideally from the same device) and take simultaneous shots with both. And even though the app was designed with stereoscopic GIF creation in mind, the hope is that the technology will start looking more like the Apollon Concept in the near future; letting you snap panoramas and 3D images using only 2 smartphones.

The resulting face swap photos can be saved or shared on social networking websites. Hopefully they turn this into a web app soon.
