Your phone is a magnifying glass

Magnifying the small print on a partYour camera phone now has such high resolution that it makes a handy magnifying glass. For instance, you can read the tiny branding marks on small parts like this hearing aid if you take a photo and zoom in on your camera phone. dotphoto’s Edittools can also make a permanent image for reference or printing.

Remembering Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame Good Friday 2017Two years ago, my wife and I were in Notre Dame Cathedral on Good Friday. We were exploring the somber chapels deep in the cathedral when a commotion stirred nearby, and a line of young men in robes emerged from a dark hallway. We joined a small crowd that followed the celebrants to the front doors of the cathedral and out onto the bright plaza where they established the stations of the cross. We will remember that colorful spring afternoon all our lives.

How wonderful that Notre Dame was largely saved and will be re-built! Here is a dotphoto slideshow that recalls Notre Dame that day.

Where are my Android photos?

My apologies to the nice dotphoto customer who called to ask about uploading Android photos. I suggested that she watch our video about uploading, which is usually very helpful; it only occurred to me later that she could not find her photos in her phone.

Android devices can keep photos in many different places, so we’ve created this illustrated FAQ to help find Android photos. A few simple tricks are very useful.

How to remove “red-eye” in photos

How to remove red-eyeRed eyes appear in photos when the camera flash or another bright light source is reflected from the retina. The reflected light illuminates the rich blood supply of the connective tissue at the back of the eye and produces the red color you see in pictures.

To remove red-eye on dotphoto, go to the dotphoto editor by choosing a photo and then tapping the pencil icon. Then choose the red-eye feature, select the eyes and apply.
