How to turn on TIFF photo saving in ProCamera 7 for iPhone (and why you should)

The new TIFF format has caused quite a stir with lots of interest and questions about the feature.  This post will hopefully answer a few of them.

The TIFF file format allows users to capture the highest quality, lossless photos with ProCamera 7.   Chris Prakoso in his Moblivious blog explains why TIFF is important for a mobile photography workflow:

Mobile Photographers almost never directly share their photos without doing some post-processing first. This could be as little as fixing exposure, contrast or sharpness; adding some filters, effects or overlays; to as advance as doing manual HDR edit or multi-layering Digital Imaging. All of these require multi apps workflow which recently had been dubbed with the term ‘App-Stacking‘.

Congratulations to our friend Andy Butler on the one year anniversary of his Mobiography magazine.

The bi-monthly magazine is full of hints, tips and interviews with mobile photographers from around the world, including Jennifer Bracewell, Sarah Jarrett and Koci Hernandez.

This month’s feature is focused on one of our favourite topics, street photography.  It includes an interview with photographer Shel Serkin, practical street photo tips, black and white conversion techniques and hardware reviews for equipment that can help with candid shooting.  Oh and there’s an excellent feature on ProCamera 7 in there as well giving an insight into the development of the new version.

To mark Mobiography’s first birthday, the magazine has also launched a competition for one lucky reader to win two detachable mobile phone lenses (fish-eye lens and wide angle/macro lens).

New ProCamera 7 Update with TIFF, open-in and hi-res Instagram support

We’re exited to bring you one of our most feature packed ProCamera updates to date with new TIFF file saving, Open-in functionality, high-res Instagram support and Shadows and Highlights correction tools. 

With the new TIFF file format you can now save and edit maximum quality, truly lossless photographs in ProCamera. There are two TIFF formats available, uncompressed TIFF or TIFF LZW for smaller file sizes. You can change the file format in Settings > More > File Format (see below).

Our new sharing functions make it even easier to get your photos online and in print. The Instagram SquarePrepare function now supports high-res exports – making your #ProCamera7 photos sharper than ever.

The new Open In option lets you easily transfer photos between supporting editing and sharing apps. Open In supports TIFF functionality.

We’ve also improved our DropBox compatibility and added Vimeo sharing. The new print option makes it possible for users to wirelessly print their photos at home or with print services that support the function.

That’s not all, we’ve also made a number of improvements to our Lightbox, Night Mode and video recording. The Lightbox now makes it easier to save, share and delete media from within the app. You can turn on the Lightbox in the Settings – it’s top of the list. The Night Mode has been tweaked to limit noise in low light. Video frame rates are now fixed for broadcast quality recording.

We’ve also heard your requests and have reintroduced the shadow and highlight correction tools into our ProCamera editing suite.

Finally, we’ve made some epic code changes to make the app even faster and more stable.

Let me know if you have any questions about the release in the comments below.

A round-up of ProCamera 7 reviews from around the world

Image copyright Moblivious.com

Since we released of ProCamera 7 in September last year we’ve received a number of reviews of the app from all around the world.  We thought we’d consolidate a few of our favorite quotes and links into a short list.    Thank you to all the writers below for taking the time to review the app.

United States

“The app can take you from shooting your photo all the way to editing and sharing. Many apps do that, but the number of features and the slick execution of those features make ProCamera 7 a standout.”

Mel Martin - ProCamera 7 for iPhone offers some compelling new features for TUAW

“I’ve been thoroughly enjoying ProCamera 7 for the past few days for my iPhone photographs, and I believe that it’s worthy of being on most home screens for powerful photo capture. If you’re a serious iPhone photographer, and need an app that can do it all, then ProCamera 7 should be at the top of your list.”

Christine Chan – Get A Beautiful And Powerful Photo Capture And Editing Experience With ProCamera 7 for AppAdvice

United Kingdom

“Building on the good reputation of its predecessor, ProCamera 7 is clearly then another highly recommended photography app, which extends the functionality of your iPhone’s camera significantly with an impressive collection of quality features and stylish filters.”

Nick Spence –  ProCamera 7 for iPhone, iPad review – Feature packed follow up to well reviewed original for MacWorld UK

“And talking about getting the most out of our phone, the ProCamera 7 has been redesigned almost from the ground up. With the aim of making everything easier and faster, the user interface has been reworked. Most notably you can see the hint of the iOS7 flat design everywhere you look. Some of the advanced functionality has been move around to make it easily more accessible and less cluttered.”

Chris Prakoso – ProCamera 7 – The iPhone Camera App Every Passionate Mobile Photographer Must Have for Moblivious

Germany 

“So viele Funktionen, kann man eine solche App überhaupt noch bedienen, oder ist zuerst ein Studium der Anleitung erforderlich? Man kennt das ja von Digitalkameras: Nach dem Kauf kommt das Lesen. ProCamera 7 macht das anders, ein Umstand, an dem die jahrelange Weiterentwicklung der App positiv auffällt. Die Foto-App ist rund. Also richtig rund: Sauber im Design, der Vergleich mit einer Leica ist zwar gewagt und dennoch naheliegend, sowie schnell und intuitiv in der Handhabung. Mit nur wenigen Tasten kann die gesamte App bedient werden, wobei die Steuerelemente geschmackvoll platziert wirken.”

Boris – ProCamera im Test for AppGamers.de

Italy

Un’App matura che nella versione 7 non ha solamente messo il “vestito nuovo” ma introdotto nuove funzionalità e aperto nuove strade per interessanti aggiornamenti futuri.

Pierpaolo Pernici ProCamera 7 Review for Fotofonia

Ukraine

Потому как ProCamera функциональнее, красивее интерфейсом и логичнее. Несмотря на десятки настроек и опциональных возможностей, она не подавляет и не отвлекает от процесса съемки. Кроме того, снимает не только фото, но и видео, чего Camera+ не умеет. А я приветствую универсальность.

New ProCamera 7 Update: QR Code Scanner, EXIF Viewer and Auto Save are back!

Photo by Lydiashiningbrightly 

Happy holidays to all our ProCamera users! Our latest update sees the return of the QR Code Scanner, EXIF Viewer and manual saving.  We’ve also refined the focus and exposure (F/E) locking system, making it faster than ever. 

First up, the new QR Code Scanner has been redesigned for ProCamera 7.  It can be found under the Mode Switch (next to Night Mode). For enhanced security the ProCamera QR Code Scanner shows you the website URL so you can choose whether you want to visit the site.

The EXIF Viewer now gives you all your photo and video data in an easy to read interface.

A simple swipe to your left brings up the map, which shows you where the photo/video was taken, and amazingly, for photos, the direction you were facing. You can also keep the EXIF Viewer turned on while you swipe through your photos and video.

The Auto Save option is back in the Settings.  Now you can turn on the Auto Save to save straight to the Camera Roll/Lightbox or turn it off to preview each photograph before you choose to save or delete it.

For those using the advanced focus and exposure controls (F/E Lock), we’ve fine-tuned the code resulting in faster locking on release. We hope this gives the street and documentary shooters even more confidence when preparing for a shot.

We have also squashed a number of bugs and made detail improvements to the interface.

As always, if you have any questions about the update then please let us know on our support page.
