The Past and the Process: Filtered Photos in the Timeline of Photography

Phone Filter 4 copy

I was a kid in the early 90s and my brother would often drive me around. One day, on the radio, a song came on by the Squirrel Nut Zippers. My brother turned to me and asked, “Can you believe how popular this song is?” I didn’t understand what he was asking. “I like this song,” I said. “Yeah fine, but it sounds like it’s from the 40’s.” This was one of the first times in my life that I had become aware of time.

Not time, like wristwatch time. The grand idea of time. That long incomprehensible string that was here before me and that’d be here after I’ve gone. A pretty heavy concept to be born from listening to a Squirrel Nut Zippers song.

The most common files stored on Microsoft’s SkyDrive (and, we’d guess, just about any cloud storage service) are photos. As such, the company has decided to give its cloud storage service a facelift by providing a couple of highly-requested photo-centric features. Read more…

A Facebook Timeline Showing the History of the Photograph

If the photograph was a living person, what would his Facebook timeline look like? Photo aggregation service Pixable decided to answer this question, creating a giant infographic on the history of the photograph with the layout of a Facebook timeline.

Over the years, we see the marriage he has with Kodak, the Kodachrome process born to the couple a few decades later, and a subsequent relationship she has with Digital Camera.

Stock Photography for Your Facebook Timeline

Here’s an interesting, if not a little specific, idea that someone over at the stock photography website Dreamstime put into action earlier this year: a stock photography site dedicated entirely to Facebook timeline photos. Timeline Images is exactly what it sounds like it is, a collection of cheap stock photos optimized for your Facebook timeline.

It’s a great example of the “see a need, fill a need” philosophy. And even though it seems a little bit too niche to take off, getting a professional looking timeline photo for only a buck would probably appeal to quite a few people out there.

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.

BlackBerry 10 Camera Features “Timeline Lens” that Captures Moments You Miss

The new BlackBerry 10 operating system was unveiled BlackBerry World 2012 today, and one of the amazing new features that wowed the crowd was the camera app. It features a seemingly-magical “timeline” lens that lets you rewind sections of photographs in order to recover moments that your fingers weren’t fast enough to capture. Did your subject blink in the photo? No worries… simply rewind their face and you’re good to go! Basically, the camera is constantly capturing frames as soon as the app is loaded, so there’s always a small buffer of previous moments stored for you to recover.
