Macworld | An iPhoneographer’s six favorite apps

Gracie poses for my iPhone

I used to check this site regularly, but I’ve gotten away from paying as much attention to my iPhone photos.

There are 2,920 photography apps available in the App Store, and more are being added every day. Sorting through and testing each new release—every faux film filter, cropping, and tilt-shift tool—could amount to a full time job. Thankfully, Glyn Evans narrows it down for you on his site iPhoneography.com.

I wanted to make note of this, though, to look at the recommended apps and think through the ones I’ve already invested in. The pic above wasn’t edited on my iPhone, but in Imagewell, which I also used to SFTP the image up here.

Gracie Says “Hi!”

Ellen meets Gracie, and we've got our first dog
Today we welcomed Gracie to the family. She’s a 5-year-old brindle greyhound who raced successfully for a long time in Florida and had her last race in January. The group that offers the dogs for adoption has lots of info, and screened us pretty well to make sure we’re committed to the needs of a greyhound. I thought we’d get her a week ago but today turned out to be the day!

Gracie – who raced under the name Nimby Midge – was spayed just Wednesday and has to have her staples out next week. In the mean time we’ll start learning to adjust to each other’s rhythms, but we’ve already gotten very attached. She’s so easy-going but I’m sure she’s also tired from effects of her surgery Wednesday and overwhelmed by all that’s new.

We’re so glad to have her. We also have Jeanie visiting from Charlottesville, a long-time friend Ellen knew from her time there in the early 90s. It’s a fun day at our house.
