Tip - Manage Photos with BestPhotos

Date: 1st January 2019

Duration: 06:11

Show ref: SCOM0800

Photos on iOS is great for accessing your photos on the go, but managing your library or making batch edits can be a pain.

In this week's tip, Mike shows you how to make easy edits on multiple photos using BestPhotos for iOS. You find out how to quickly delete photos or mark them as favorites, add location metadata, as well as clean up "accidental videos".

Show ref: SCOM0796

The holidays are the perfect time to share photos with the people closest to you using the Shared Albums feature in iCloud Photos.

In this week's tip video, Mike shows you how to set one up, add your favorite photos, then invite friends and family to view it. He also goes over the Public Website option so your album is accessible from a web browser on any device.

HashPhotos for iOS

Date: 26th October 2018

Duration: 60:18

Show ref: SCOM0781

Think of HashPhotos as a way to augment Apple Photos. It works on your existing iCloud Photo Library but brings unique capabilities that simply don't exist in the Photos app.

You don't have to choose between Apple Photos and HashPhotos because they work together, allowing you to have the best of both worlds. Most of the features of HashPhotos act on your iCloud Photos Library, so if you create albums and folders in HashPhotos, they show up there, too. Edits you make to your images also carry over.

HashPhotos is incredibly fast, even on a giant iCloud Photos library, making it more efficient for some things than working in Photos on the Mac. But the real power is in the extra features, like adjusting the dates on photos, adding location data, creating film strips, and much more.

This week, Allison takes you on a tour of HashPhotos and shows you all of those features, using both iPad and iPhone.

HoudahGeo 5

Date: 24th August 2018

Duration: 53:27

Show ref: SCOM0763

Handling the location and metadata for your photos can be an arduous task. Many photo managing apps don't make this easy and often times the metadata is only contained in the library and doesn't go along with your image files if you move them to another library.

HoudahGeo 5 is an application that streamlines adding location and other metadata to your files. The best part is that it writes that information to the files themselves instead of the library's catalog. HoudahGeo can also communicate with programs like Photos and Lightroom to make sure that those libraries are aware of the changes and perform the necessary updates inside the library.

This week Todd takes you on a tour of HoudahGeo 5. He walks you through the various ways to get photos into HoudahGeo 5 and then covers all of the geocoding and metadata options. You also learn how to add metadata to the files and share them with outside libraries. Exporting that added information to other services that read them is covered in the last section of the show.

Affinity Photo 1.5 Update

Date: 10th February 2017

Duration: 48:03

Show ref: SCOM0603

In SCOM0560 and SCOM0565, Allison Sheridan introduced us to the highly capable image editor, Affinity Photo from Serif. This $50 Mac App Store application is turning the photo editing world on its head.

In the previous tutorials, Allison taught us how to use the Affinity Photo extensions within Apple Photos, and then revealed the full power of this excellent application.

In this week's tutorial, Allison is going to show us the massive capabilities that Serif added (for no upgrade cost) with their update to Affinity Photo 1.5. In addition to being able to round trip images to Affinity Photo from Apple Photos now, you can edit 360 photos, record macros of common tasks, do batch processing on many photos at once, focus merge, shallow depth of field images, and they've even added HDR and Tone Mapping.

Whether you're a professional photographer or an amateur who just enjoys photography, Allison promises you'll find these tools easy and intuitive.

FotoMagico & Scanner Pro 7

Date: 12th August 2016

Duration: 54:33

Show ref: SCOM0570

Two great apps this week - FotoMagico to take your slide shows to the next level, and Scanner Pro 7, the portable scanner in your pocket.

You may thing you’ve got slide shows covered with Apple Photos, but you really haven’t when you take a look at the functionality built into FotoMagico!

We had a brief look at Scanner Pro 7 in a previous show, but I was very impressed with its capabilities and wanted to drill down a bit more. 



Affinity Photo - Part 2

Date: 8th July 2016

Duration: 48:04

Show ref: SCOM0565

Photoshop is a fantastic app, but for some people it’s much too powerful (or too complex) for their limited needs, and for others, they don’t want to be paying for an app on a ongoing subscription basis.

Affinity Photo is a terrific alternative to Photoshop - all for a single one off payment!

As well as some fantastic Apple Photo extensions that can be used in the Apple Photos app, Affinity Photo can also be used as a standalone application, with some incredibly powerful features - all aimed at helping you edit your digital images like a Pro.

Allison Sheridan previously covered the Affinity Photo extensions in episode SCOM0559.


In this episode, she takes a look at using Affinity Photo as a standalone application, and exposes some of the power of this fully featured app.

Affinity Photo is a terrific alternative to Photoshop - all for a single one off payment!

There’s so much to cover, Allison will be featuring Affinity Photo in two parts - in this initial episode, she’ll take a look at using the wide range of Apple Photo Extensions provided as part of Affinity Photo.

Photoshop Pt 3 - Masks & Photoshop Mix

Date: 6th May 2016

Duration: 47:47

Show ref: SCOM0556

Another information packed episode in our short Photoshop series, this time focussing on using Masks to improve and adjust selected areas of your photos. Even if you’re not a Photoshop user, this episode covers some of the basic principles of using masks and translates to almost every other photo manipulation app.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff also takes a look at Photoshop Mix for the iPad & iPhone, and demonstrates how to create masks, adjust your photos and mix photos together - all using the free Photoshop Mix app.

Photoshop Pt 2 - Layers & Photoshop Fix

Date: 25th March 2016

Duration: 47:58

Show ref: SCOM0550

The second in our multipart series on Adobe Photoshop on the Mac and the Adobe Photoshop apps on iOS.

Many people have opted to use Adobe Lightroom as a replacement for Apple's recently retired photo management application Aperture. Adobe Photoshop is a pro-level photo manipulation and is available to supplement Lightroom in a special bundle from Adobe.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff drills down into using Layers in Photoshop to non-destructively edit your images. The basic principals of using layers are very similar across many applications, so even if you're not a Photoshop user, you may still find this episode useful.

Todd also looks at the iOS companion app - Photoshop Fix.

Photoshop Fix is a free universal app for the iPhone and iPad and allows you to edit your images non-destructively. It also has some unique features for face manipulation and some other cool tools.

Photoshop Fix is free to download and use, but if you're a Photoshop user, you can transfer the updated images from your iOS device with all the layer changes accessible in Photoshop - very smart!


As not everyone has opted for Lightroom or has a need for Photoshop, the Photoshop series will be limited to a three or four part series, published once a month. We will also be looking at some low cost Photoshop alternatives in the near future.
