    It was really swell to hear two of my favorite people on the podcast together talking about such a fun subject.

    Two tips for you.

    Wally mentioned that he likes to crop most photos to 16×9 because it’s very pleasing to him. I discovered recently that if you set the iPhone to shoot in 16×9, when you go into Edit in Photos, select Crop and then go to the aspect ratio button, if you select “Original” it will change to 4×3, recovering more information. So the iPhone is doing a crop for you, but collecting the full 4×3 information. Pretty cool.

    And one for Bart. You mentioned that it’s impossible to get a clean shot of the big rocks you were talking about because there are always people there. Affinity Photo has a really slick feature to fix that. Go to a crowded place, and take 20 shots in a row of the same framing as people walk back and forth in front of it. As long as every bit of the view is visible in any of the shots, in Affinity Photo when you stack them it removes all the people!

    Here’s a link to the help page with a demonstration of how it works:
