Boinx Software, a developer of software for the Mac and iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad and iPod, has introduced its latest creation for digital photographers and photo enthusiasts: the PhotoBox iPad application. Designed as a tool for photographers on the go, PhotoBox analyzes the technical quality of photos imported from camera to iPad via the iPad Camera Connection Kit. The first of its kind, this breakthrough app provides photographers with an on-the-spot analysis of images in terms of exposure, focus, color, and overall look and composition. Post-shoot, photographers can connect their iPads to a VGA projector to show their photos on the big screen for a deeper analysis and critique. With a long history of developing image applications the Boinx team is taking a different path by offering its users the first version FREE. Working closely with early adopters on evolving its functionality, Boinx is developing PhotoBox into a photo app unlike any other.
PhotoBox tips and tricks:
- Enable masks for an in-depth view of dark and light areas.
- Tap to select an image and get the color and luminance histogram.
- Double tap to zoom in on an image.
- Use the buttons in the button bar to turn on the over and under exposure detection tool.
- PhotoBox allows users to view images in any orientation; in landscape mode, the RGB channel histograms can be combined and expanded into one with a simple two-finger pinch/zoom.
- While in View mode, a double finger tap and hold will zoom to 100%, giving users the ability to glance around the photo and immediately zoom out again after releasing both fingers.
- Attach a VGA projector using the VGA out cable to show photos on the big screen. Pan and zoom while connected to the projector for an “in your face” view of image details.
