Your iPhone photography stats automatically created into an Infographic for you

If you get info on your photos you have taken with your iPhone, you can find out where you took the image, the time, if you used a flash, what app you used and much more. All you have to do is go through each photo to see that information.

Or, you can use a new app to analyze all of the photos on your iPhone and create a Infographic to show you all that data through graphic images. Photo Stats Infrographic Creator is that app which gives a fun view to that data you normally have to dig for.

The data collected is for photos on your iPhone only, in my case that is a few saved folders from trips and events, a Photo Stream (max 1000 photos) folder and the main big iPhone Photo default library

Notice the number in the lower left corner, showing that there are 11 information graphics created by me and the Photo Stats Infographic app. My part was waiting a few minutes as the app went through all of the photos, barely enough time to grab a cup of coffee! Looking at the graphic below, I need to go back and see where I was on Feb 25th!

It would appear that Photo Stats says I spend most of my time taking photos in the middle of the day. Makes sense since I shoot a lot on my daily lunch walk.

Choose the settings gear in the lower right corner to get to a few fine tuning options. Turn the circle to get to the options, the upper most is the one your adjusting. Period is for start/finish photo dates, Share is for sharing your infographic to social services, Themes has a couple options to customize the look and finally ‘View’ is how the graphics layout.

If you choose the ‘View’ option, you can have the data appear side-by-side to swipe through or all of the data stacked, which makes more sense if your going to share for others to view. Photo Stats Infographic Creator a must have app I’ll use every day? No, but it will be fun to use from time-to-time to get an overview of the photos I have on my iPhone.

Take a picture with your iPhone, add a filter, share on Facebook…. Facebook gets their own camera app

Everyone is talking today about how Facebook bought Instagram and now has a light version of the Instagram app with some filters connected to Facebook. The Facebook folks mentioned back when they were first making the purchase that they were about to release a Free Facebook camera app that had nothing to do with Instagram. I have a tendency to believe them that this new app had no Instagram employee assistance. But, everyone mixes the two to get readers.

So, what is this Facebook Camera app? It is to the Facebook app as the Facebook Messenger app is to the full Facebook app. The Facebook Camera app is for viewing your friends photos, like you can do with the full app. The difference is though that you can do a little tuning of your photos before sharing.

When you launch Facebook Camera, your taken to a scrollable list of photos your friends have posted to Facebook. You can view, comment and like the photos as your scroll through them.

From the main screen of the Facebook Camera app, you can use the camera icon in the upper left corner to take a photo, or choose the row of images to be taken to your iPhone’s photo library. If you pull down the thumbnails, you will see a list of the different libraries you have on your iPhone to choose from. Select one or many photos to upload to Facebook.

Your chosen photos appears in a new enhancement area of Facebook Camera. Buttons across the bottom will; take you back to the overview of photos on your iPhone, Crop, the magic wand brings up filter effects to apply, and the blue button will let you add text then post to Facebook.

When you post your photo, it appears with the text you added in the ‘Me’ area.

Viewing your multiple social photo albums in one iPhone app

If your like me, I have my photos shared all over the place. I have several groups on Facebook for that group of friends, my constant posting to Instagram, Twitpic for my Twitter shares and the list goes on.

This of course means there are times I have shared a photo, removed it from my iPhone and forgot where it was that I posted it. Also, there are times I need to buzz to several albums when I’m mobile to find a couple pics to use in a post… loging in/out of multiple social services.

I found an app that seems to be from someone that has shared my pains, SuperAlbum. It’s a inexpensive app that lets me view across albums on Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Mixi, Picasa, Tumblr, TwitPic, and 500ps – all at the same time. I can grab a photo off of any of the services and re-share or even print.
