Apps Uncovered A Bit Up in the Air This Week!

Last week got away from me, and I didn’t fulfill my duty of selecting the best work from the past seven days for Apps Uncovered. But not to worry, your hard work won’t go unnoticed – next weekend will include a “double bill” or “baker’s dozen” of twenty to twenty four of best work from the two weeks in mid-October!

My apologies!

[Placeholder image – “The Flight of the Great Sea Bird” by yours truly. Apps and Backstory: Pelican captured with Hipstamatic (John S. lens) on the iPhone 4s, and upper background texture was a painted wall captured with the native camera. Combined elements processed using Superimpose, PixlrExpress and Aremac. “Ocean” and “Land” created using layered painted surfaces, sun created using LensLight, and distant land / peninsula created using brushes and cloning tools in Photoshop Touch. Window frame captured at LA-MAF 2012, with perspective corrected using AndIfTouch, and scaled non-uniformly using iResize to widen the space to accommodate the image.]

It is a real pleasure for Nicki and me to pour through the weekly gallery each week of your images. We love reading about the stories and techniques behind the images and then sharing the best of them with the world. This can take a few hours to put together, and can even longer when image-sharing is disabled on a Flickr member’s images.

Therefore, to save time, we have decided that images that have image-sharing disabled turned on in their settings will no longer qualify for possible inclusion in the weekly selections. We will also be posting this message on the Flickr group.

In order to qualify for possible inclusion, please make sure that you have image-sharing turned on in your settings. If you are concerned about your images being misused, you could upload a low resolution copy of your image which would limit usage.

How do I turn image sharing on?

Go to Your Account, tap on Privacy & Permissions, then “Who can download your images (including originals)”, then “Edit” and make a choice from the list, such as “people you follow” or “Any Flickr member.”

Making a choice from the list above will ensure we can easily link your photo from our iPC website to Flickr.

Also, sometimes we are asked to add extra information like copyright information or external websites. Please do not ask us to do this. By using the Flickr link from Flickr to our site, your image is automatically covered by the “all rights reserved” symbol and text that appear in the bottom right-hand corner of each image we post.

By posting to our iPC Flickr group, we understand that you have read the rules and would like to be included in the weekly roundup for possible inclusion in our feature “Apps Uncovered”. If you would prefer not to be included in the gallery feature, please let us know by responding to our “Congratulations Message” pasted in the comments section of the selected image.


If you’d like to see your images in the running for selection to our weekly Apps Uncovered feature, be sure to list the apps you used to create your image when you upload it to the iPhoneographyCentral Flickr group. (And as an added bonus to other members who would love to learn from your successes, consider adding the “Backstory” describing the creative process that led you to capture and process the image as you did.)
