Weekly photo contest: Flowers!

For a lot of folks spring is finally here and that means green grass and flowers finally in bloom. There's nothing like seeing the light at the end of the wintery tunnel to put you in a good mood.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 6th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

CFMulti DSLR CompactFlash media card adapter review

With the exception of the Mac Pro, every Mac that's available these days has a built-in SDXC card slot. That makes it convenient to transfer digital photos and video from cameras that use SD card slots. If you prefer a camera that uses CompactFlash you're not out of luck, fortunately. The solution for that problem is the CFMulti from Synchrotech.

Flickr for iOS just got a complete overhaul, bumping the app to version 3.0 and bringing a host of new and welcome features.

It also just looks plain better than the old version, even though it wasn't an ugly app before by any means. The app has also improved its suite of editing tools that were previously updated back in August.

Loom, the cloud storage and organization service and app for photos and videos, has been bought by Dropbox.

HDR, or high dynamic range, is one feature the iPhone, particularly the iPhone 5s really excels at.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 8th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
