Take A Break form the PC and editing, have a KitKat
When Google revealed the features of their latest Android OS update, 4.4 KitKat, they failed to talk much about a new feature that should be a welcome addition for photographers. KitKat 4.4 will come bundled with a new non-destructive photo editor, a pretty advanced photo editor at that.
The editor is pretty powerful, works on tablet and phones, handles full-size image processing, zooming, re-edit, image exports, user presets, etc. This new version also adds more powerful specialized tools (graduated filters, per-channel saturation controls, local adjustments, etc.) If I am being honest I am really impressed.
Should I be ditching my PC and start editing my photos on my tablet? No, not by a long shot. But for those fun family images when Canon’s not with me. I would have no issue pulling my tablet out and making some quick edits with this new editor. It looks to be really robust and quite powerful.
According to Google the new photo editor will be built into KitKat’s Gallery App, so any android device that utilizes the standard photo browsing interface should be able to access and use this new editor. Just hope Samsung dont mess it up for the galaxy S4 or S5 when it comes.
As we wave goodbye to summer 2013 (cry) and prepare for Christmas and the onslaught of cooler weather gear, here’s a guide to the all-important trends to kick off your autumn in style.
This is to be a stand out season, one of the biggest colour stories for AW2013 is bright, blazing red and a sprinkle of black. It’s been seen throughout the London Fashion Week and favourite with many designers. Wear the colour head-to-toe as seen on the catwalks with a dress in a darker red, or go for a more muted look by splitting the red with a touch of black.
