Every party I go to in December has one thing in common: every person has a camera – either a clicker or the one on their phone – and is happily shooting away. The next day, my Facebook notifications go haywire with all the photos I’m tagged in, I get emails from people sharing albums of the event on Picasa and Flickr, there are a bunch of Instagram photos of the same night (and usually with a lot of food in that, sigh!), and my dad and his friends stick to good old email attachments.

And the whole point of a service like Everpix really sunk in when this happened: a nifty web app that collates photos from all your different accounts and puts them under one roof. And it even features an app for the iPhone that takes all of its images. Lovely! But does it actually deliver?

The holidays are fast approaching, and that means photos aplenty. Whether you’re going on vacation or hosting family and friends, most folks end up getting a lot of mileage out of their cameras around this time of year. Now’s also a great time to get hold of and get used to a quality photo editing app, so that you can enhance your pictures for sharing online or adding to greeting cards, postcards and gifts. And that’s why we’re checking out PhotoCat.

Loaded with simple editing tools and a range of extra features perfect for adding fun and cheer to photos, this new app is perfect for home users young and old. And those of you who’re celebrating Christmas are in for a real treat, as PhotoCat has a bunch of special yuletide effects and decorations to play with! Let’s see how easy it is to edit our photos with this new kid on the block, and how it stacks up against the competition.

Over the past few weeks on Web.Appstorm, I’ve covered two web apps which have really impressed me: Pixlr and PhotoRaster. Both of these are photo editing web apps that are powerful and easy to use. After raving about these apps in separate reviews, I decided it was time for a comparison so we can find which is the best online photo editor.

If you’ve read my review of Pixlr, you’ll know that it is split into three different apps. Thus, we will be looking at Pixlr Advanced, the editor which is most similar to that of PhotoRaster’s. Read on to find out which app we like the best!

In the days before email and smartphones, postcards were an amazing way of sending a pictorial message to someone. It showed the recipient when that sender was seeing, along with a note at the back describing what that was or their feelings at the time. It was personal.

Smartphones changed that to a large extent with their cameras and internet connectivity, making the modern ‘e-postcard’ much faster. And now, Findery is taking it to the next step of the postcard’s evolution. It’s no longer about you sending a postcard to a friend, it’s about sharing it with the world and pinpointing it on a map for anyone to find.

That’s right, Findery lets you leave notes for the world. (more…)

Last month on Web.Appstorm, I looked at PhotoRaster, an advanced online photo editor which really impressed us. Today, we have another web app called Pixlr, which is another twist on online photo editing.

While PhotoRaster, like most image editing apps, is a sole app that gives you tons of options, Pixlr is a photo editor split into three different apps. Each of these is built for a specific purpose, and you’ll likely find yourself only using one of the 3 Pixlr apps. In this article I’m going to cover each one so you can see which one is for you!

It’s been said that the world would be a better place if everybody knew how to edit their photos. Okay, fine, I just made that up. But it’s true, though — images are so much a part of our digital lives that being able to post quality pictures has become a necessary skill. And with the wide range of easy-to-use imaging apps available for every platform, there’s really no excuse for using poor, boring images anymore.

Today we’re taking a look at a new player in the editing game, and it’s called Fotor. With its array of tools and effects, this app offers plenty of scope for adding a creative touch to your shots. And while it’s simple enough for novices to get into, Fotor is also a great option for those familiar with photography, to work quickly with images wherever they are. Let’s dive in!

If your computer doesn’t have a built-in webcam app, your camera might sit there unused, even when it could have a ton of fun potential. For Mac and iOS users, this has always been pretty easy, since they can use the Photobooth app to quickly take all the fun pictures you like. Windows 8 now has a built-in camera app, but for everyone else, you’ll have to go searching for another app.

In an age when the web possesses everything we would ever need, you probably could of guessed there was some kind of alternative online. Snappic is an app which definitely fits the bill. Acting as a Photobooth in your browser, Snippic could soon become a party favourite!

Photo editors are something which we all need from time to time. Whether you’re a professional photographer or a casual blogger, editing tools are necessary for most of our jobs. However, choosing the right one for you is a difficult task, and the majority of us don’t have spare money to invest in some of the high end software. This means it’s pretty slim pickings if you want a capable program will a relatively low price tag.

Recently, I’ve came across Photo Raster, a web app that fit the bill perfectly, something I never expected to happen. Read on to find out how Photo Raster fits into my workflow.

There’s many times you might need to make some sort of chart or diagram. Lots of people really like to mind map, web and app designers have to make wireframe layouts of design and interface ideas, and business workers might need to make charts to explain facts and figures to clients and co-workers. There are plenty of full-featured and affordable desktop options for making such charts, so why look for an alternative web app?

Social features and sharing are where diagram-making web apps really start to show some unique innovations and Cacoo, the app I’ll be reviewing today is no exception. Cacoo is an online chart/diagram/wireframing tool. Within the app you can use templates or create your own project from scratch using a number of advanced features. You can then collaborate on the project with some co-workers or share and export it to show clients. It’s a handy app with a mile-long feature list, so stick with me to learn more about Cacoo and whether it’s worth using or not.
