Retro Filters Collide: Hipstamatic Announces Official Integration With Instagram

Lead Hipstamatic iOS engineer Sam Soffes sends a pic to Instagram

Instagram is undoubtedly the reigning champion of social photography apps, but there was once a time when Hipstamatic owned the spotlight. As the mobile app that took the trend of filtered photo sharing mainstream, Instagram owes a lot of its success to Hipstamatic. Apple awarded the iPhone app of the year award to Hipstamatic in 2010 and the torch was passed to Instagram in 2011.

Add Some Street Cred To Your iPhone Pics With This Workshop

Add Some Street Cred To Your iPhone Pics With This Workshop

@Brad Evans.

If you live in a city, the people that you meet when walking down the street are often great photo subjects.

But if you, like me, have a hard time getting decent shots with your iPhone of the woman with the cascade of facial tattoos you pass every day on your way to work, check out a free workshop at San Francisco’s Apple store this Sunday.

Brad Evans and Travis Jensen will teach you how to add some street cred to your everyday iPhone photos. They’re a pair of veteran urban shutterbugs who teamed up for #iSnapSF Field Journal, which showcases 42 images from thousands snapped on the streets of San Francisco using the iPhone 4 and the Hipstamatic app. (If you can’t catch the workshop, stay tuned for Cult of Mac’s interview with Jensen for some great iPhone photography tips.)

Immortalize Your Next “Hangover”-style Night with Hipstamatic’s New Group Photo App

Hipstamatic Disposable from Synthetic on Vimeo.

Hipstamatic has a new group photo sharing app that just might help you remember what happened last night.

With the Hipstamatic D-Series (as in “disposable”) app, available in iTunes December 15, a group of people can snap “rolls” of pictures of 24 “exposures.” The set-up is a deliberate nostalgic wink to analog photo days and cheap disposable cameras still given to guests at weddings, says Lucas Allen Buick, Hipstamatic founder and CEO.

Photographer Sues Apple for Nicked Pics in iPhone Apps

A screenshot from "HipstaHelp - The Unofficial Guide to Hipstamatic."

The details are a little blurry, but it could be an interesting case so here goes: a photographer is suing Apple claiming that two apps in its iTunes store have ripped off 80 of her pics.

Shanti Deva Korpi filed a suit on Oct. 18 in Texas for copyright infringement. That much we know. In the complaint, Korpi is described as an “avid photographer and artist” who regularly posts to Flickr groups.

The folks over at Hipstamatic sent either the best or the worst email subject line, ever.

It announced  “We Heart Boobies GoodPak,”  presumably touting a limited-edition lens of the photo app for October. (Spam filters everywhere are convinced it’s an advert for a new porn toy. But of course we opened it anyway.)
