Just a few weeks ago, 300 hackers got together for Photo Hack Day in San Francisco.
With the help of finger sweat-bands and a few pallets of energy drinks, they made 70 hacks in a short 24 hours!
A panel of judges chose three winners to receive funding and make their photo app dreams come true. So what were they?
1.Pics with Friends: A guessing game! Figure out what a portion of a photo from a friend actually is.
Two note-worthy ones are This Is My Cam!, a web app that looks at your Flickr photos’ EXIF data to figure out which cameras you use the most, and Actually, a web app that lets you view a “global stream” of photos from around the web.
To think all those apps were created just to make us photo fans’ lives awesomer! We <3 you, developers.

And the best part? You’ll never leave home without it.

You’ve seen those plain paper lanterns at the store, and now you can convert them to show off your own bright and colorful photographs.

Photography and stencil art go hand-in-hand quite merrily, but it’s not so great if you’re not chummy with the scissors.
Well, Mr. Snippy Scissor, meet your match with the nifty masking liquid, or what we like to call liquid magic.
What is it? Well, painters use it to prevent parts of their paper from getting stained with watercolor. Think of it as a stencil!
Our handy DIY will show how you can harness this liquid-stencil goodness to easily turn your photographs into dreamy watercolor art!
