Snapchat may be having a tiny little issue when it comes to iOS 7 usability. Apple’s updated mobile operating system (which is currently in beta) reportedly allows users to screenshot Snapchat “snaps” secretly.
Here’s an interesting idea/experiment put together by Adrià Navarro and DI Shin that takes photographing your daily life to a whole new level. Fair warning, if you think that taking pictures of your breakfast or your night out bowling is overkill, you should probably stop reading now…
Flickr is reportedly set to push out a number of major design updates across the photo-sharing service’s website. Adrianne Jeffries of Betabeat recently met up with Flickr senior product manager Markus Spiering, who gave her a sneak peek at a number of extensive changes to the interface that will be rolling out at the end this month.
He then opened a new tab to show the spread, completely revamped. Suddenly the photos look more than four times their current size and lie neatly justified on the page, somehow jigsawing together without cropping or changing the order in which they appear.
The new photo view will hit on Feb. 28, Mr. Spiering said, and with it comes a new upload interface. Flickr’s uploading page now looks more like an app than a website. Goodbye, retro blue links. Hello, swoopy drag-and-drop.
Sounds a whole lot like Google+ photo sharing, huh? Betabeat reports coming away from the meeting “with the impression that Yahoo is not sleeping on Flickr” — great news for the faithful members of the service.
Early beta versions of Photoshop CS6 (codenamed “Superstition”) have already made it into the hands of testers, and information about changes and new features is slowly starting to emerge. AppleInsider has published some screenshots of the new program, which apparently comes with a darker, Aperture-esque user interface. There’s a number of new features geared towards working with 3D, a mysterious new “Remix Tool” inside the healing brush pallet, and a “Perspective Crop” tool. There’s also new auto-save options that help you save your work automatically in the background.
At this point, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing Image Deblurring appear in CS6. Adobe is rumored to be shooting for a CS6 launch around May 2012.
Now here’s a person who really believes in the power of photography.

Apparently Homer Simpson is quite handy with tools and savvy with camera repairs. Here he demonstrates the proper technique for getting a broken camera to magically work again… or for installing a custom tripod thread to the top of a camera.
