Nik Software has released Snapseed Desktop for Windows. Snapseed is an image editing and sharing application originally designed for the Apple iPad. “Bringing the Snapseed experience to customers on their computer was an overwhelming top request from our mobile app users,” said Michael J. Slater, President and CEO of Nik Software. “With an estimated one trillion-plus photos stored on computers, mobile devices, and in the cloud, people everywhere are tapping the power of photo editing and enhancement software to tweak, tune, and share their photos.” Compatible with Windows XP and later, the newest edition of Snapseed is available for $19.99 or the equivalent in other currencies both from Nik Software directly or through the Intel AppUp store.

Official Nokia 808 PureView Sample Images

By way of its official blog, Nokia has released three full-resolution, 38-megapixel sample photos taken with the new Nokia 808 PureView camera phone. All three Nokia 808 PureView samples were taken at low, non-standard ISO sensitivity settings (ISO 55 and ISO 58), with the lens wide open. Do they compare favourably with the official sample images from the 36-megapixel Nikon D800? Perhaps not (remember that those samples were captured with some of the best Nikkors out there, using a camera with a full FX sized sensor), but they surely do contain a lot of detail - try resizing them to 14-16 megapixels and you’ll probably agree that this smartphone is likely to give a lot of compact camera manufacturers a run for their money.

Nokia 808 PureView

The Nokia 808 PureView smartphone features a 41-megapixel sensor, high-performance Carl Zeiss optics, plus new PureView Imaging and pixel oversampling technologies. “At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable,” the company says. At high-resolution (38 megapixel maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards. In addition to superior still imaging technology, the Nokia 808 PureView, also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world’s first use of Nokia Rich Recording, which enables audio recording at “CD-like” levels of quality. Other highlights of the Nokia 808 PureView include a 1/1.2” sensor - which is only slightly smaller than the ones found in the Nikon 1 System cameras -, a 8.02mm (~28mm equivalent) f/2.4 lens and a 4” screen.

Nokia PureView Imaging Technology White Paper

Nokia has published a white paper on the PureView imaging technology that powers its brand new, 41-megapixel camera phone. “The Nokia PureView Pro imaging technology is the combination of a large, super high resolution 41M[ega]pixel [imager] with high performance Carl Zeiss optics,” the authors say. “The large sensor enables pixel oversampling, which… means the combination of many pixels into one perfect pixel. PureView imaging technology is the result of many years of research and development and the tangible fruits of this work are amazing image quality, lossless zoom, and superior low light performance.”

Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad 2

Adobe today announced that Adobe Photoshop Touch, previously available for Android tablets only, has now been released for the Apple iPad 2. The app is a central component of Adobe Touch Apps, a family of six touch screen applications, inspired by the Adobe Creative Suite. “Adobe Photoshop Touch lets users transform images with core Photoshop features in an app custom-built for tablets,” the company says. “With simple finger gestures, users can combine multiple photos into layered images, make popular edits and apply professional effects… With Refine Edge technology from Adobe Photoshop, even hard-to-select areas with soft edges, such as hair, are easily captured when making selections.” The app is available on iTunes for $9.99.
