How to upload and edit DSLR photos on your iPad

Working for iMore has gotten me to once again appreciate my good old Canon DSLR. For the last few years, my poor camera often ended up hidden in a corner, making an appearance only when my iPhone wouldn't do or for special vacations. With smartphone cameras so good these days, it's been hard to justify carrying around the extra weight for a non-internet-enabled device.

But DSLRs — especially DSLRs with nice lenses — can take wonderful pictures if you're willing to work with them. For me, this meant figuring out a faster workflow than "taking a bunch of pictures, waiting until I got home to my computer to upload them, then slowly sorting through them via an app like Lightroom."

That solution? The iPad.

Lowepro Passport Sling III review: A great travel gear bag at a great price

When I first saw the Lowepro Passport Sling III, I though it was odd looking. I definitely didn't think it'd be a bag I'd end up owning. Yet I kept coming back to it on Amazon. I kept looking at it. And then I hit "buy now"...

A month and four countries later, and I'm glad I did.

DIY: How to make an awesome wall collage using your Instagram photos!

DIY, short for "do it yourself", is a weekly column where I roll up my sleeves and go over everything and anything from field-stripped and fixing your out-of-warranty iPhone or iPad to fun projects you can do with apps, family, and friends.

Post lots of photos on Instagram? Ever think how cool it would be to turn all of your different photos into an awesome in-real-life collage to hang in your home? I recently decided I wanted to do just that with some of our vacation photos. After a quick web search, however, I realized the selection of free templates to choose from is rather dismal. That's when I decided to make my own customizable template. Follow along for cool, free downloadable templates and complete step by step instructions to get your Instagram collage up on your wall in no time!

How to shoot a selfie that doesn't suck

This week's photography column is dedicated to Kevin and Ally, both of whom have recently become enamored of selfies and selfie sticks. Now, I admit that I don't hate selfies — I find they're a great way to snap quick facial expressions you don't have an emoji for, or show off something awesome you found. (Or a haircut, I guess.) And because we're on a selfie kick this week, I decided to write down some of my top tricks for getting photos of yourself that don't stink up your camera roll.

Avoid blurry selfies and shaky photos with a Bluetooth remote shutter

I'm not a fan of selfie sticks for a variety of reasons — chief among them that people tend to leave them on while doing other device-related tasks, like talking on the phone. But I admit that I like the idea of using them to frame a good shot.

Even without a stick or tripod, however, I can use something like Casetify's $35 Bluetooth Remote Shutter to snap my picture from afar.

How I learned to love the selfie stick

iPhone selfie sticks used to appeal to me about as much as taking photos with an iPad. I didn't think it was possible for me to loathe an accessory more, and when I first saw it, I literally face-palmed.

Yet the impossible has happened: I went on vacation and quickly found myself on a mad search across London for the one object I swore I'd never buy. Yes, you heard me right — I bought a selfie stick, and it was totally worth it.
