Nokia Launches Magical Slideshow App PhotoBeamer for Lumia Phones

Earlier this year, we shared an amazing iPhone app by imaging company Scalado called PhotoBeamer. The app allows you to quickly run a slideshow of your Camera Roll photos on any device that can load the PhotoBeamer website, simply by pointing your phone at that display. One month later, Nokia acquired Scalado and began folding the small company’s projects into its own software. Now, Nokia has launched a repackaged version of PhotoBeamer exclusively for its Lumia phones.

RIM Bringing Built-In Photo Editing and Instagram-Like Filters to BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry doesn’t get much attention from App developers these days, and as such many of the photo apps iOS and Android users take for granted are expected to be sadly absent when RIM’s new mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, makes it onto phones. Still, the upcoming operating system has already made some waves using Scalado rewind technology, and according to CrackBerry, there’s a lot more photo goodness on the way from RIM in the form of a full suite of editing options and Instagram-like filters.

Nokia Already Putting Scalado Acquisition to Work in Camera Extras App

It looks like Nokia wasted no time putting the folks at Scalado to work for them. As we reported a week ago, Nokia is acquiring Scalado’s developers, technologies and IP portfolio, and we’re already seeing Scalado’s well-known “rewind” technology make its way into Nokia’s new Camera Extras app.

Besides allowing you to rewind faces for group shots, the Camera Extras app also offers burst shooting, advanced panorama, timers and more. The app, which will remain a Nokia exclusive, launches in the US and China tomorrow. So if you’ve got a Lumia phone and you wanna take advantage of some cool new features, head over to the Windows Phone Marketplace tomorrow, or check out Nokia Conversations for more details.

Nokia Looking to Acquire Scalado and Make Lumia Phone Cameras Even Better

Scalado is a big name in imaging, having come up with some pretty phenomenal ideas like the Rewind and Remove apps — the first of which made a big splash when it was demoed as part of RIM’s BlackBerry 10. And now it seems someone is finally trying to move in and steal Scalado all for themselves: Nokia. Read more…

PhotoBeamer Makes Sharing Photos With Any Web Connected Display a Breeze

Last weekend we mentioned that the Bump app had just added browser integration, allowing you to transfer photos from your mobile device to your computer by simply “bumping” the space bar. And now another sharing app called PhotoBeamer has crossed our virtual desk that does something a little bit different, but does it just as well. Read more…

BlackBerry 10 Timeline Feature is Indeed Scalado Rewind Rebranded

A couple of days ago the world was wowed by the up and coming BlackBerry 10′s new camera app. The app, demoed by RIM at BlackBerry World 2012, allowed you to select someone’s face and scroll through frames captured before and after you hit the shutter button. If you thought the app looked familiar, you were right: it’s actually a rebranded version of Scalado Rewind.

Scalado Remove Helps You Un-bomb Your Photobombed Photos

Last year imaging company Scalado showed off an app called Rewind that lets you create perfect group shots by picking out the best faces from a burst of shots and then combining them into a single image. Now the company is back with another futuristic photo app: it’s called Remove, and lets you create images of scenes without the clutter of things passing through (e.g. people, cars, bikes). It works like this: simply snap a photograph, and the app will outline everything that’s moving in the scene with a yellow line. Tap that person or object, and it magically disappears from the scene!

Rewind: An Awesome Camera Feature for Perfect Group Photos

What if you could take perfect group photographs by first shooting multiple frames and then selecting the best portions of each one? Microsoft amazed us with this concept last year with its Photo Fuse technology, and now we may soon be seeing something similar coming to mobile phone cameras (and hopefully compact cameras as well). Imaging technology company Scalado gave the above demonstration at a conference earlier this month showing off Rewind, a super-useful feature that shoots a burst of full-res photos, then lets you select the best faces for each person in the image. Next up on our wishlist: Content Aware Fill.
