With Love From Sundance (Day 1)

Greetings from Park City, UT, where the snow just started falling. We are out here with the awesome folks at Bing doing a killer Postagram promotion at Sundance. Read all about it on TechCrunch ;)

So far our trip has been awesome, and I got a few shots I wanted to share (above). These were all taken on my iPhone. The scenery is gorgeous and shooting photos in the snow has been fun!

We are just getting started with our Postagraming, but managed to spot a few celebs out here, like Ben from The Bachelor!

Create your own Cinemagraphs with the Kinotopic app for iOS

I’ve been wanting to make my own cinemagraphs ever since I saw Photojojo’s excellent tutorial, but messing around with Photoshop turned out to be a bit trickier than I had hoped. Luckily the new Kinotopic app for iOS makes this whole process a breeze! A cinemagraph is an animated gif that looks like a static image, but with a few parts of the image actually moving. It’s like a cross between photography and videography. Creating these surreal images with Kinotopic is actually pretty easy. You start with a short video, then select the parts of that video that you would like to animate. Kinotopic will then create an animated gif where everything stays totally still except for the highlighted sections.

Jen Pollack Bianco’s Postagrams from Egypt

Travel writer and photographer Jen Pollack Bianco has been sending us some great Postagrams from her recent trip to Egypt. It’s been fun to experience The Pyramids of Giza through the mail… and I know should be used to it by now, but it’s still crazy to think about the experience of getting postcards from across the world in just a few days.

Check out Jen’s travel writing and awesome mobile photography!

BTW, we LOVE getting Postagrams, so please feel free to send us pics from wherever you happen to be. If we use one of your Postagrams, we’ll be sure to hook you up with some credits too!

Our AppJudgment segment on the Percolator App

Our community manager and in-house photographer, Doc Pop, recently made another appearance on Revision3′s awesome AppJudgment show to talk about one of his favorite iOS apps, Percolator.

Percolator creates awesome circle-mosiacs from your images. It’s a lot of fun to play with, especially when combined with other apps. Try Percolatin’ a Hipstamatic image to see the how the circular effects handle the borders.
