How to use iPhoto to darken and add drama to your iPhone photography

This week our iPhone Photography series is going to be a little different. Instead of exploring a new technique for taking better photos, we're going to dive into the digital darkroom of iPhoto to improve an image we've already taken. It's always worth capturing the best possible photo you can with your camera. Thanks to photo editing apps like iPhoto, however, when and if something goes wrong -- the framing is a little off, the white balance or exposure isn't perfect, the levels just don't look right -- there's a lot you can do to fix it.

Swedish magicians prove the iPad really is magical

Okay, I admit it -- the iPad really is magical. At least it is when it's put into the incredibly talented hands of Charlie Caper and iMore reader Erik Rosales. The performance by Step2 Communication at MIPIM in Cannes, which Erik said required 7 iPads and one of Sweden's best magicians, was on behalf of the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

I can't even imagine how much practice must have gone into making this work. Amazing.

How websites are adapting for the new iPad Retina display and other HiDPI screens

Following the launch of the new iPad there's been a lot of discussion about how, and where or even whether, websites should update to support the needs of HiDPI screens like Apple's Retina display. If users are going to be looking at websites on a Retina display iPad, and one day Retina display Macs, HiDPI Android and Windows displays, and other high density screens, having them look as good as possible is a definite concern.

New iPad power indicator reportedly two hours too fast

According to some recent reports, the new iPad battery level indicator seems to shows a full tank two hours and ten minutes before it's actually charged to full capacity. This news means, contrary to appearances, it really takes about 9 hours to get a full charge from scratch. The tests were run by DisplayMate, the fine folks that analyzed the display on the new iPad.

Only 6% of iPad sessions on cell networks, even LTE iPads spend most time on Wi-Fi

Localytics has recently compiled some of their data through apps, and has concluded that only 6% of iPad sessions are made through a cellular network of some kind. They've also figured out that 89.7% of iPads out there are Wi-Fi-only, while 1.5% are the LTE-enabled new iPads. Even among new iPads, only 36% of the sessions are using 4G LTE.  It's worth noting that the new iPad just went on sale in a lot of countries today, though other studies show that the U.S. takes up the lion's share of app activity.

New iPhone (iPhone 5,1) coming fall 2012 with LTE, similar sized screen

While Apple has only just released the new iPad, iMore has already started to hear more about the next generation iPhone (iPhone 5,1). We previously reported that Apple was working to reduce the size of the traditional 30-pin dock connector to something closer akin to a micro-dock so there'd be more room inside for other components (similar to how they went from a mini-SIM to a micro-SIM in 2010). Yesterday we reported that, as of last month, Apple was planning to stick with the current 3.5-inch screen size for the new iPhone, but that it wasn't set in stone and it could get a little bigger (though nowhere near as big as current 4.5-inch-plus Android phones.)

Following that story we received some additional information.

How to send video, games, FaceTime and more from your new iPad to your TV with AirPlay

Back when iOS 4.2 was released, Apple introduced a new feature called AirPlay. Although limited at the time, AirPlay allowed any video using Apple’s standard media control to beam image and sound over a local Wi-Fi network to an Apple TV for viewing on the big screen.

Later on, iOS 4.3 brought more functionality to the service by adding support for Apple’s Photo app and various other 3rd party apps. Now with iOS 5, AirPlay mirroring lets any screen of any app to be displayed on an Apple TV over Wi-Fi including games and yes, even FaceTime.
