I recently bought a new iPhone. This was not in my planning for possibly another year as my current 7 version was functioning for what I needed. Basically I was using for reference photos, Instagram posts while on location, remote control for my dslr and the phone part of the phone.
My early purchase was brought about because my formerly trusted iPhone 7 refused to make or receive calls any longer. We had good times together…
Welcome in the 11 Pro Max. Looking back at when I purchased the new iPhone 7, I wanted a smaller design and opted on not getting the 7 plus because of the larger size. Shortly afterwards I was out with friends on a photo excursion and noticed the photos they were pulling off of the dual lens on the plus. I was envious. I was not going to make the same mistake on this go round. There are better cameras on other phones but this is an integration issue for me.
However, here is the real reason for this post. While playing in the iOS software I found a setting that interested my creative sense. Have you ever wondered what your images would look like in black and white? I know that some times it is easy to see when you are setting up for a shot, and at times I am going out with that in mind. But how about changing all of your photos at once to look through, without a color distraction.
This is not the intended option for this setting, but I find it interesting on many levels and one is this ability to browse images for a fresh look.
Under Settings, Accessibility, Display & text size, scroll down to Color Filters and turn this on. The first option is Grayscale, select that and bang, everything is in grayscale.
This is where I find things interesting as all color is removed from apps. I find it truly desensitizing. Now head over to photos and cull through your images. Pretty cool! One note on this mode is that screen shots will still be taken in color and not be grayscale when you switch the Color Filter off.
I find it refreshing at times to set the phone into grayscale and eliminate the eye popping colors, and it can be a conversation starter.
