Color thief app; it is one of the best color manipulating app I have ever used, hands down! It takes the color palate from an image and applies it to another. No adjustment needed!

Photosynth vs. AutoStitch – App Recommendation

I have been using Photosynth for so long; I fell in love with it! Suddenly, AutoStitch came in and stole my heart.

Here is a comparison between these two great apps.

Update 30/12/2012

From the Panoramas above, Autostitch is FAR better than Photosynth in Quality; BUT so sad Autostitch limits you to 40 photos, while Photosynth doesn’t give you that limit. So for creating Tiny Planets, you need more than 40 photos for a 360-View, hence, I recommend Photosynth in that case.

Here is my Profile in Photosynth website, to see other Panoramas I shot during my travels:

Happy shooting! :)

Use Instagram Filters More Than Once!

Sometimes, some photos need more (Colour Density) before getting them to the final result (this is for the iDevices or Androids).

For example today I was at the Barbershop, I took a photo of the Barber while he was working on a man’s face! The lighting was so awesome that I couldn’t resist to take a photo.

So, I wanted to apply TWO FILTERS to my photo to end up with a fine result. Which will be much better than using a single filter!

I used X-Pro and Willow filters, result: (Increase Light and Shadows, then turning the photo to Black and White)



Follow these steps:

1- Turn ON the Airplane mode (you’ll be disconnected from both Wifi and 3G connection, and we want that to happen):

Airplane mode ON

2- Open Instagram, Load the image to apply the 1st filter on, then hit Share.

You’ll get this, Click on the X to cancel:


3- Turn OFF Airplane mode:



4- Get back to Instagram, and Load the image again to apply another filter on it!

Happy Editing! :)
