What's the best camera app for the iPhone?

I have an iPhone 6s Plus, which has become pretty much my only camera for the last several months. I actually like it a lot and have been learning to get some photos out of it that I really like. However, I'd like to have more control over the camera settings than I get from the default app. Is there an app that does this well? [more inside]

How do you batch change the location and date of photos in Mac?

So I took a bunch of photos on a trip to Japan and the time and date are wrong on all of them because of a mistaken camera setting. Is there a way to change the metadata for the files somehow all at once instead of one at a time?

Quicker way to load Mega.co.nz photo thumbnails

I use Mega for a catch-all photo backup. This is in addition to backups of select photos that I really want to keep. I found a reason to access that backup finally now after a few years of using it. I have 3000 photos to look through though. Loading the image thumbnails is so slow it would take months to find the photos this way. How can I find the photo I'm looking for? [more inside]

Transcription. Lots and lots of transcription.

I have scanned copies of 60 documents that I need transcribed. It's 1,318 pages in total, single-space typed, with each page a separate JPG. I usually self-transcribe stuff like this, but this is a bit more than I want to take on. What are my options for getting this done without breaking the bank? [more inside]

What is a suitable alternative to Togethera?

My extended family is a large one and distributed over North America and Western Europe. Up until now we have been using Togethera as a means to share photographs and stay in informal contact. Unfortunately, Togethera have today sent out an email announcing the termination of their service. Is there an obvious alternative social network that can fill this gap? [more inside]

Best 2016 IPhone photo backup

Looking for the most reliable and easy to use automatic photo/video backup solution for iPhone. Contenders include Dropbox, Amazon, Flickr, icloud, Google, and probably others.

UK - how to digitise large number of photo negatives?

I have a huge number of negatives from my days using a film camera. I would like to get them converted to digital files. Is there anywhere in the UK, ideally London or mail-order, where I can get this done, and how much is it likely to cost? I would rather pay someone else to do it than, for example, buying myself a photo scanner - although I do have a standard scanner I don't think this can be used to scan negatives in this way.

Photo Album Which Lists File Names of Photos In Album

I have 2000 photos which I'd like to organize, and have 2 specific requirements - I'd like to: (1) select photos in one album and add them to another, & (2) access a list view of each album - i.e. see the file names of the photos in an album, listed by their order in the album. Currently I have MS Photo and Google Photos - looks like I can only do #1 in Google Photos, and can't do #2 in either. Am I missing something, or is there a suitable alternative - web, Win 8.1 or Win 10?

Help me find a photo! Elephants, plaid, boxes; B&W

In the early '90s, in the back of my high school photography textbook, there was a gallery of photos. One was a black&white of two people wearing plaid shirts looking at elephants over a fence in a zoo. The photo was composed so one didn't immediately notice that further down the fence, there were two more people standing with boxes over their heads. Any help identifying this (or even better, finding a print) would be much appreciated.

Canadian passport photos in Seattle

I'd like to get my passport photos taken in Seattle. The complication is that they need to meet dimensions required for a Canadian passport. Camera shops are mostly out of business, and FedEx and UPS offices can only take pictures meeting US passport dimensions (they print out to 2" x 2", and are too small). Per instructions, I am not allowed to take them myself. Do I have any other reliable and inexpensive options available in the Seattle area?

Web tool for collaboratively captioning photos?

It appears that when doing a Google search for my name ('Tim Pollard') the result Google features is a weird combination of my details (from Wikipedia) but with an embedded photo of an entirely different Tim Pollard (a motoring journalist).

How to turn off Google Photos

I don't think there's any way to uninstall the Google Photo bloatware on my unrooted Android phone, which is super-annoying. I've turned off "upload to Google+" but am angsty that one day, after an update or whatever, it might re-default to upload. I don't want Google saving copies of my stuff, and I am not reassured by their help materials, which talk about me "not seeing" the images anymore if I delete them. That's not the same as Google not having them, which is what I'm trying to avoid. Without rooting my phone, is there a way I can delete the app, or stop it from storing my stuff? [more inside]
