Photo Quality Check, a simple utility app for all iPhone users that like to evaluate their photo's detail, or need their images to be sharp and focused for print. This may be useful for professionals like, for instance, journalists, designers, architects or real estate agents, or users that still like to keep physical photo albums or turn their best photos into posters.
The latest release, version 1.2, adds some performance updates and a UI tweek in the photo view screen, making the user experience more inline with the iOS core navigation paradigms. This update now requires iOS7 to install.
Smartphone, a camera in your pocket
Taking photos with a smartphone is not always easy, as involuntary shaking or hand movement often produces blurred images. Although many photo apps offer an anti-shaking feature, you can miss the photo opportunity fighting your own hand to be absolutely still. But you can just shoot away, with no shaking control, using your favorite camera app. Then you have lots of photos, some blurred and some not. How do you check that?
With this app you can quickly check each photo's detail and sharpness by previewing it at 100% zoom level: each photo's pixel is matched to each display pixel, both on retina and non-retina displays. It's like your personal magnifying glass always in your pocket.
Take photos inside the app with the built-in camera interface, evaluate and save only the good ones to the camera roll. You can also check existing photos from your camera roll or any other photo album.
Check photo quality on the go
Check the picture quality in two different ways. With Tap zoom just touch your photo to zoom it to 100% and drag your finger to pan around, quickly checking every detail. Or you can use Pinch zoom to magnify your photo up to 100% zoom. This holds the zoom level so that you can analyze a particular detail with hands-free for as long as you wish.
Besides saving your photo directly to camera roll, by tapping the export button get more output options like email, Airprint, copy to clipboard or open it directly in another app for editing.
See what you’ll get
With the image information window preview the maximum print size of your photo on a standard paper size large enough to print the picture, either for offset printing at 300dpi, or for digital inkjet or laser printing at 150dpi. By taping on the preview image you get the exact maximum advisable print size on your selected measurement unit.
Photo Quality Check is the debut app released by SmallBlackRooom, a personal project by a graphic designer and photography enthusiast venturing in iOS development.
