Editing with an iPhone

  • Photo

"I'm an Idiot!" There I said it!

That seemed like the only way to start off a blog post about editing photos on my iPhone that I am writing on my iPhone because I mistakenly left my laptop on my desk at home before traveling all the way to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament.

I could make a bunch of excuses about how I forgot the second most important piece of equipment I need to do my job but I think they are all covered by my opening statement.

So last night in my hotel room I had to come up with a plan to get photos back to the office because not sending anything wasn't really an option. The plan I came up with was to do everything on my phone.

First I had to figure out how to get photos out of my camera and onto my iPhone. Enter one of my favorite little toys the Eye-Fi Pro x2 Wi-Fi enabled SD card.

Using the Eye-Fi in direct connect mode I was able to tag photos in the camera and send them to the Eye-Fi app on my phone.

Next I pulled the photos into another very cool app called FilterStorm. FilterStorm is almost like Photoshop for your iPhone. It allows you to open photos, crop them, do some basic toning, and then send them along via FTP or email. It also has lots of other features I'm not going to get in to.

So after all that I was able send the photos you see on the web and in tomorrow's paper. Oh and thanks to my lovely wife and the magic of Fed-EX my laptop should be here first thing tomorrow.
