Auto-import your iPhone photos using OS X’s Image Capture


This is useful for folks who want a minimal effort way to backup their iPhone photos.

I was talking to a friend on Facebook (hi Kelly!) and she mentioned how many hundreds and hundreds of photos she had on her iPhone.

I asked her, “When is the last time you backed up your iPhone?”

And, like so many people, she gave me exactly the answer I was expecting. “I don’t know…”


If you have a Mac, read this article and set up Image Capture (a free app already on your Mac OS X running machine) to automagically back up your iPhone photos.

Orient – The Self Aligning Camera

I’ve often wondered if my eyes are on straight.

I know that sounds funny but it’s true. The vast majority of my DSLR and iPhone shots are just ever so slightly crooked. It’s REALLY annoying.

Orient’s goal is to help you (well…me) solve the issue of crooked photos. It actually works fairly well.

Simply choose what aspect ratio you want your photos to be in and the app uses your iPhone’s gyroscope to make every shot you take is level and straight. It’s free so give it a shot.
