Microsoft’s Xim is an awesome way to share photos across devices, no matter whether you’re on Android or iOS or even Windows Phone. Now it’s getting even better. The newest update to Microsoft Xim adds Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One and web browsers to the mix. That means you can share photos from virtual any mobile device to virtually any TV. That’s awesome.
iOS: When you want to show your friends and family some photos, even the most fabulous of phablet screens may not be big enough. The Ghump app for iOS makes viewing your photo gallery on a bigger screen incredibly simple.
Hi Lifehacker, I recently purchased my other half a DSLR camera for Christmas. She doesn’t have a laptop or PC, and I’m not sure we could warrant buying a computer for the purpose of touching up photographs. She does have an iPad Air, and I’m contemplating purchasing a single-bay NAS for photo backups (which will sync to my own NAS for redundancy).
Android: You’ve got hundreds of photos you’ve collected over the years. You don’t want to pore through the pile picking out the good ones. Slidepick helps you get rid of the junk with a simple feed using Tinder-like gestures to swipe away photos you don’t want, and keep the ones you do.
iPad: Pixelmator is our favourite image editor on Mac, and now it’s available on the iPad with a lot of different editing features. The interface is easy to use, even if you’ve never really messed around with image editors before.
Dear Lifehacker, I’m organising my family photos digitally and have a burning question — how can I tag people’s names for posterity? Picasa, iPhoto and the like can recognise faces and record names, but the names are stored in a separate database, not attached to the photo. How can I store this data for posterity, guarding against different programs and different operating systems for the next 50 years? What is the digital equivalent of writing a person’s name on the back of a photo?
