ProCamera 8 Launches, Adds HDR and Manual Controls

Posted by on September 26th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

An update has arrived for Cocologics‘ photography app, ProCamera 8, adding manual controls and HDR.

Through their partnership with vividHDR, accurate three-shot HDR capture is now in the app with five different HDR styles (Natural, Vivid, Dramatic, Black and White, and Faded) available. Users can try out the new feature for free but will get watermarks on their pictures, with an in-app purchase of $1.99 required to remove these watermarks.

Meanwhile, new manual controls allow photographers using the app to adjust exposure levels thanks to new control over Exposure Compensation and the ability to manage ISO sensitivity and shutter speed. Control over color temperature and color tint has also been added, as has slow-motion playback for high frame rate videos for the videographers among you.

ProCamera 8 is available to purchase from the App Store now for $3.99, with watermark-less vividHDR available as an in-app purchase for $1.99.

We all take plenty of photos, right? That’s the joy of having a reasonably powerful camera in your pocket, thanks to your trusty iPhone and a bevy of similarly useful apps. Wouldn’t it be great to make some money out of those snaps? While your selfies might not garner much attention, there’s sure to be some great shots that will appeal to someone keen to purchase the rights. That’s the thinking behind PicsaStock, an app that allows you to sell your photos to professional creatives around the world.

PicsaStock_logo_darkProving to be remarkably simple to do, you can connect your account to the likes of Instagram, 500px, Flickr, and Dropbox, thereby sharing individual photos with the community in the hope of selling them elsewhere. We had a word with head of Mobile Marketing & Press, Lars Poeck, to learn more.

Lars-Poeck_Foto
148Apps: Where did the inspiration for PicsaStock come from?
Lars Poeck (LP): Before PicsaStock.com we founded YourPainting.de. This is a global gift franchising for customized photo paintings. During this process, we realized the complicated licensing process for photography. We also learned about a huge demand for authentic pictures – by agencies, bloggers, websites and even big brands. But these photos are hard to get. This is a strange situation. We all “produce” pictures like this everyday – everywhere. Each smartphone comes a high-tech-camera – right in your pocket. You are able to do even night shots or long exposure pictures with some photo apps.

So we invented PicsaStock.com as a marketplace and community for authentic photography. Sure, we keep an eye on good quality content. But as you [can] see on platforms like VSCO Cam, 500px, Instagram, or Flickr: there are millions of brilliant photographers out there that do even more than selfies or cat pictures. Some don’t have the slightest idea that they can earn money with their photography. We give them 50% of the sale price. So we invite them all to sell their photography. Our app also comes with features like a nice gallery mode [and] a special color search technology, so you can skip through your own gallery and discover brilliant pictures by other photographers with the app.

148Apps: How many people are currently using the service?
LP: We are a very young company. [Note: The company was founded in February 2013, with the site launching in September 2013 and the iOS app following in February 2014] At the moment we have around 25,000 users and photographers on our platform. Some upload hundreds of pictures, some just want to give it a try and upload a few pictures. But it’s amazing to see this growing every day. In our company, we all have a passion for photography. So every morning when we arrive it’s amazing to skip through the new pictures that people from all over the world uploaded on our server.

148Apps: How many photos have been purchased since the site was launched?
LP: At the moment we don’t release these numbers. But before I started at PicsaStock, I tested the service by myself and sold 10 pictures with the app. At the moment, we have 1 million approved and curated pictures and photos. Every day we get thousands of new ones. Sure, we can’t accept all of the pictures in terms of keeping up the quality standard. But it’s amazing how many people out there really know how to take a good picture – not only with their smartphones. As a tip for new users: The better you tag and name your pictures, the easier it is for others to find them.

Photographer Wisslarenedit your photos
148Apps: How is the service currently funded?
LP: As we launched in September 2013, we were supported by an investment from Slamdunk Capital and other early stage angel investors. Now we [have] some more business angels on board.

148apps: Are there any plans for an iPad app for the service?
LP: I love the iPad and the tablet size for displaying photography. You can use our app on iPad but it’s not optimized yet for the tablet. We’ve just launched our Android app and plan some feature updates for the current iPhone app. But sure, tablet apps are something we are discussing more and more often.


Thanks to Lars for taking the time to answer our questions. The PicsaStock app is available now from the App Store.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Lorystripes, a photography striping utility that we had an opportunity to review late last year, has received a sizable update. The update includes three new packs with 30 new striping possibilities, new messaging and export options, and more.

According to creator Laurent Rosset, “LoryStripes set the bar high from the very beginning with regard to both technology and artistic appeal. We’re continuing that tradition with LoryStripes 1.2, propelling photo editing and enhancement into a new era of possibility. The graphic striping and ribbon components are stunning.”

Lorystripes is available for $1.99.

• Three all new packs containing 30 brand new striping possibilities
• Collapsible stripe menu for faster, simpler shape navigation
• User preferred packs remain open for easier access during editing
• Smoother, more refined image edges via higher resolution texture tools
• Faster, more accurate masking for a highly polished finish
• Automatically saves last edits, even after time lapses
• New export and sharing options, including messaging, email, copying and printing
