Disabling iPhone HDR from Saving Two Photos

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range which is one of the features of iphone camera. This feature enables the iphone to capture great pictures with high resolution. Only the discouraging factor of this app is that iphone save two images one with perfect resolution and the other at 5 mega pixels which consumes extra storage memory. Sometimes there is no noticeable difference between the two images stored. In such cases the only solution is to disable this HDR feature in iphone camera settings. Following are the steps involved in disabling this application:

  1. Open the main menu and go to the Settings icon
  2. Tap on the settings icon to open the further options
  3.  Scroll down and tap on “Photos”
  1. Under the “HDR (High Dynamic Range)” option, slide the “ON” button to “OFF” next to “Keep Normal Photo”
  2. Close out Settings

After closing the settings menu start Camera and see the changes will imply if you have turned on the HDR feature the system will save only HDR picture. In contrast if you have turned it off or disabled it then original picture will be saved only.

Disabling iPhone GPS & Geographic tagging data in iPhone Photos

In phone the user can disable the GPS and Geographic Tagging information visible as EXIF data on the images. Following are the steps involved in disabling this feature:

  1. Open the main menu by pressing the home Button
  2. Go to the settings icon
  3. Tap on Settings
  4. Tap on General option in Settings menu
  5. Tap on “Location Services”
  6. Select the On/Off switch next to “Camera” so that the switch is set to OFF
  7. Exit settings
  8. After completing the steps it is recommended to reboot the device so that the changes can take place.

By disabling the GPS and geographic tagging iphone will no longer use the GPS and location services when taking photos. One more thing to be added for this is to alleviate the privacy concerns. In case you want to enable this feature of showing GPS and geographic tags for EXIF viewers turn the services “On”.

Edit the IPTC info on a photo

iOS devices like iphone, ipad and ipod have applications for everything. Finding application just appropriate for your need is not a tough job now thanks to App store. In Apple’s original photo app you cannot add captions to the photos.

  • For enabling or disabling the captions on the images and sharing on social networks you need to edit the ITCP settings in setting menu.
  • The right application for this is the Photogene? which is available on App store for about $0.99.
  • This application is meant for editing the IPTC of an image on the phone. IPTC stands for International Press Telecommunications Council. It was originally developed for media to quickly exchange information about news items like photos.
  • Some of the info that can be stored in the IPTC is author information, title, caption, and copyright.
  • Photogene² makes editing this info easy.

There are many updated versions of the app available in the market like pro version which can create IPTC sets to streamline the process. With the passage of time many other tools have been introduced for this feature which are also available on the App store for very low cost.

The Best And Weird Wedding Photos!

Julian Sunmi Park and Benjamin Jinsuk got married last year, they planned to have the unique photo-shoot out of they loving couple. So inspite of doing all the stuff which a new couple set out for photo shooting they took their interest in something different. Making horrible, memorable and lovable moments in the shoot out. And in fact it was a nice way to make the memories and tell them to their kids. You need not to explain the story. It all forms when you look upon those pictures.

So here it starts! Take a look,

Blurry iPhone Photos? Here’s A Quick Fix

Lately a number of complaints have come in regarding the lesser sharpness of photos taken through iPhone. I tried quite a few different photo apps, as well as some video recording; nothing worked.

I then checked the lens to ensure it didn’t have any dust or other flotsam on it, and it seemed fine. But on deeper inspection, with the light hitting it at just the right angle, I discovered the hitch: a fingerprint.

Now if it’s an iPhone 4, the process of cleaning the lens is easier than you might think. That’s because on that model, the lens cover sits flush with the back of the case. Using a microfiber cloth or even a soft shirt, you can clean the cover with just a couple quick breaths (to provide a bit of moisture) and a light wipe. Older iPhones have recessed lenses that are harder to clean. For those models, I propose a cotton swab and, again, a couple quick breaths for moisture.

Once this is done, photo and video quality improves dramatically and that is my personal experience. Hence, the moral of the story: every few days, or even just before you use the camera, give the lens a wipe.

Some Must Know Facts About Digital vs Physical Storage

Mozy is company that provides online backup and storage solutions. In a recent blog post, Physical Storage vs. Digital Storage, they provided an astounding visual depiction of the advance of technology as it relates to the storage of information.
Above is section from the graphic relating to books. Using the Library of Congress as a jumping off point, Moxy claims that they can now store the equivalent of 1000 LOC’s without breaking a sweat.

That is 32 billion books and 650,000 miles of bookshelves. Enough bookshelves to go from Jerusalem to Beijing 147 times! Now, that’s a Great Wall.

Essentially, the history of the printed word can now live on a computer.

Impressive, to say the least, but I still need more bookshelves.
