- Renowned Camera Store SCHILLERS recommends Easy Release!
"As our smart phones take over the roll of our computers you may be wondering, “how can I take better advantage of my phone to improve my shooting?
What task can my phone do and which app is the best for that task? Some apps I will talk about here you have already heard about and some may not apply to the type of shooting you do.
But it is still good to know what is out there. Most of the apps on this list work with both iphones and Android smart phones..."

- An Informal Survey of Favorite Photo Apps - Mark Fitzgerald
There are gillions of mobile apps for photographers on the market. It would probably take a lifetime to investigate each of them.
Since I know lots of photographers and am friends with many on Facebook, I decided to do an informal survey by posting the following question:
“What are your favorite photo apps on your phone? I’m not talking about camera or processing apps. I’m referring to other sorts of tools, like sunrise/sunset calculators,
light meters, model releases, etc.”

- Easy Release: Approved for use by Getty Images Contributors
We are proud to announce that Easy Release 1.8 for iOS, is the first application approved by Getty Images, Inc for creating digital model and property releases. Robert Giroux, founder of ApplicationGap, says “Since its release in March 2010, Easy Release has gained wide and enthusiastic acceptance from professional photographers. While many stock agencies have for months been accepting model and property releases created with Easy Release, approval by Getty Images means far more professionals will be able to take advantage of our application to save time and money.”
Giroux continues, “Over the last several months we have worked hard to make sure Easy Release meets all of Getty’s strict standards and requirements. Easy Release is now a better tool than ever for creating professional and reliable model and property releases quickly and easily from wherever you are.” Getty Images joins several other stock agencies, most notably Alamy, who already accept releases created with Easy Release.
Getty announced its approval on November 9th, 2010 via its creative contributor web site (http://contributors.gettyimages.com/article.aspx?article_id=2228). Getty contributors should refer to Getty’s site for the latest rules and restrictions related to digital releases. At this time, Getty has only approved Easy Release for iOS version 1.8.100814 (the current version available in Apple’s App Store). Also, Getty has placed some restrictions on digital releases created in China, due to local laws.
Getty Images, Inc (www.gettyimages.com) is the world’s leading stock photography agency. With offices worldwide, Getty Images provides creative and editorial imagery and video to every industry.
ApplicationGap (www.applicationgap.com) is the leading provider of mobile model and property release software for the iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android platforms.

"Following on from our recent announcement on the facility to upload releases to Alamy,
we'd like to recommend a handy release application available for your iPhone called Easy Release.
Removing the annoying and sometimes awkward need to handle physical model and property releases,
Easy Release allows you to create PDF release forms quickly and conveniently.
You simply enter the step by step details, attach an image and digitally sign - all on the screen of your iPhone.
You can then email the PDF to yourself and / or the model / property owner and store this on your computer.
This PDF file is acceptable for Alamy and you can upload the release to us in the usual way."
