iPhone Image Organizing Tip

by Patrick Gervais

Hey there,

I’ve noticed as I work on more and more images on my iPhone that managing all the various versions of the different processing I do can get confusing. You can’t create folders on the iPhone to help with the sorting. I did create a Textures folder via my iMac, so whenever I shoot (with the iPhone) a photo that I want to use as a texture on my iPhone, I send it to my desktop and then send it directly to this Textures folder that it synched with the iPhone. So I then have a special folder on my iPhone as pictured here. As you can see there aren’t too many, yet!! I’m working on that ;-) Ok so this workaround is annoying but helps a lot with my workflow. I wonder how the Apple iCloud service will help with this kind of thing. Oh by the way I guess I should mention the new iPhone 4s here seeing it was announced today. So click here to watch the Apple video on the 4s. New 8MP camera which is nice but also the optics are also improved. The new camera has a maximum aperture of f2.4 compared to f2.8 on the iPhone 4, so it’s a little better. I won’t be changing to the 4s anytime soon because I’ve only had the 4 for about 8 months. I can wait until the version 5 or 5s or whatever it’ll be.

Anyone have any organizing tips for me?

Ok so this weekend I was busy shooting not with my iPhone (well I did a little iPhone shooting) but with my Nikon D300 which I got back from Nikon Canada from being repaired. Boy did it feel odd shooting with that beast again!!! There is something special about hearing that motor drive shoot out bursts of rapid frames in a few seconds, nice…. The photo club I’m part of had organized an outing up north to see the fall colours and also take a helicopter ride. So while I was waiting for my turn in the heli I took a few shots with the iPhone and here is one that I like. It’s a detail of a helicopter antenna.

So that’s all for now. I’ve been going non stop for a week now and it’s starting to take its tole on me and I need to sleep.

Thanks for reading, Patrick
