How to use iOS 7.1 auto HDR on the iPhone 5s

Thanks to iOS 7.1 and the super-fast Apple A7 processor the iPhone 5s can now be set to quickly and automatically take high dynamic range (HDR) photos whenever it senses both bright lights and deep shadows in the same image. That makes it great for photos where the sky is clear but the trees are dark or when you want to capture a friend or family member at home and the lighting balance leaves a lot to be desired. Best of all, auto-HDR is really easy to turn on!

Prudent parenting in the age of digital photography

David Barnard of App Cubby has a great post up, sharing his thoughts on how to responsibly handle things like GPS geo-location information in photos, to protect his children's privacy while not giving into technophobia or paranoia.
