Turn Your iPad Into a Drawing Tablet: Sidecar vs Astropad vs Duet vs Luna

If you own an iPad and an Apple Pencil, there are several ways to pair them with your computer and transform them into a high-quality pen display for photo editing.

I wanted to see which of these options offers the most features and the best experience for the photographer on the go.

How the Syrian Refugee Crisis Inspired the Photo Editing App Darkroom

Earlier this week, Apple announced the winners of its annual 'Design Awards,' and as usual, one of the honorees was a photo editing app. This year, that app was Darkroom, and while the photo and video editor for iOS is impressive in its own right, the most interesting thing about Darkroom might be the story behind how it came to be.

Instagram CEO Says Limited Resources is Why There’s No Proper iPad App

Back in mid-June, Yahoo! purchased Ghostbird and pulled the company's popular advanced mobile editing app PhotoForge off of the app store.

Loom: A Superior Photo Stream for Photo Storage and Syncing Across All Devices

Apple's Photo Stream can be a useful feature if you use multiple devices to do your photo bidding. Take a photo on your phone, and it shows up on your iPad and computer instantly -- not too shabby.

But Photo Stream has limitations, most notably the ability to sync only your most recent thousand photos. That's why Jan Senderek decided to go out and create the Mac and iOS application Loom: an 'infinite camera roll' in the cloud that allows you to share and sync photos across all your devices easily.

Tintype App Brings the Magic and History of Tintype Photography to iOS

A few days ago, we told you about an app called Koloid that allowed iOS users to capture some of the look and feel of wet collodion photography using their iPhone. The $1 app let you not only take photos, but 'develop' them as well by tilting your phone to run chemicals over them.

The new app Tintype doesn't go quite that far, but when it comes to authenticity, creator Michael Newton has made sure that his app brought the most accurate looking tintype processing possible to the iOS world.

Fotopedia News Reporter App Lets You Create Beautiful Photo Stories On the Go

Created by five former Apple employees, Fotonaut's Fotopedia is a much more photographic way to get educated about the world around you, and Fotopedia Reporter was their way of letting anyone contribute to the archive. Be it an encyclopedia entry about The Brooklyn Color Run or a photo essay on slaves in the Antilles, you can showcase your photojournalistic skills by telling whatever story strikes you.

But those stories don't always strike you at home when you have easy access to Fotopedia Reporter on the Web, so the Fotonaut folks have decided to make it easier on you by releasing a companion iPad app.
