Photo editing with Exposure

I've been playing wound with Exposure on iOS and I have to say it's capable of kicking out some pretty impressive images. Take the two below as examples - I spent just a couple of minutes on each and I'm sure people with more patience and know-how will be able to do much, much better stuff.



Not too bad at all, really.

Exposure can manipulate specific areas of a photo in all kinds of weird and wonderful ways. I've always fancied doing things like selective colour removal but never had a tool or the knowledge to do it. Exposure makes it simple and it's super cheap, too.

Pinboard is changing its pricing model

I use Pinboard a lot, and signed up a while ago. Then, and until January 1st, the price of a standard account was and is about $10, with the price increasing for new members by ridiculously small amount with each new signup. It wasn't rocket science.

Or at least I didn't think it was.

Starting next month, all new users of Pinboard will pay a yearly sub which works out more expensive than just buying it outright like you can now. Turns out that's actually how people thought it worked already!

My main reason for making the change is so that I don't have to keep explaining how pricing works. An astonishing number of people already believe that they're paying annually for Pinboard. Others accuse me of baiting and switching them when they upgrade to archiving and get a renewal notice. Note how much easier it is to describe the new policy than the old one.

People really do worry me. They're allowed to reproduce, for starters.

Oceanhorn now looks even more lovely


Oceanhorn has always been a gorgeous game, but now it's even more so in the latest update, optimized for the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2. The visuals feature four times the polygons on these latest devices, with ambient occlusion, and new lighting effects to make everything look pristine.

Good God, just look at it. I've always liked Oceanhorn on my iPad mini 2. Kind of wish I had an Air 2 or 6 Plus to try the update on now. Yes it's updated on the iPhone 6 too, but it's not as big!
