Since the resource Deep fusion was released for the new iPhones, one question prowled the plant photographers: how to know if the mode would be active or not? Apple, perhaps on purpose, built it so that it's turned on or off absolutely quietly is no way to know when it goes into action in the camera, and the pictures taken with the Deep fusion Active have no tag in gallery. This, of course, did not please everyone.
For, as usual, the thriving world of developers that came to save the problem: if you want to check if any pictures of your new iPhone were taken with the Deep fusion, now there's an app for that.
I refer to Metapho, application already highlighted here by us as a powerful EXIF ??metadata editor and photo information checking tool. In the latest version of the app, you can check if your photo was taken with Deep fusion enabled information is available next to the image format in the metadata, with the addition of the note Deeply Fused.
Version 3.4.3 of the app also notices if a photo was taken with Night mode (Night mode) although this is not such a useful feature, as in this case we are talking about something transparent, which the user knows they are using at the moment the picture is taken.
In relation to Deep fusionHowever, one piece of information has to be considered: apparently, the method which allows Metapho to detect the presence of the resource has its days numbered. At least what it indicates Sebastiaan de With, app developer Halide: According to him, his developer team planned to include similar functionality in the app, but Apple has indicated that the method will be unusable soon; Therefore, they decided to cancel the plans.
It remains to be seen if the Metapho development team can develop another way of detecting the Deep fusion or no. For now, the feature is perfectly functional: you can check it right now by downloading the app for free from the App Store – it has an internal purchase (from $ 15) to unlock advanced functions, but the indication of the Deep fusion can be availed in the free version, even.
