This is not meant to be a definitive review of iPhone Photo Apps. I’m not anywhere near qualified for that kind of analysis. But, I’ve downloaded quite a few, and here are a few I use pretty regularly to post photos up to my TumbleBlog at AndyBoyer.Tumblr.com.
Also, I’m going to assume you already have tried, or regularly use Instagram and Hipstamatic.
1) Photosynth: It’s not the easiest tool to use super effectively, and tends to be pretty buggy, but when it works it’s a pretty cool way to take a panoramic shot. Great for the top of moutnains, stadiums, or places where you just want to capture a 30,000 foot of your surroundings. The issue is that it is hard to line up the string of photos in a way that creates the perfect stitch. But, I’m sure with a little more diligence, you can pull it off better than I do. (Also, make sure you are standing next to someone who isn’t going to move around a lot and get their head in the shot.)
2) Diptic: Easy way to quickly stitch a few photos together into one “frame.” Do the edits right on your phone, and choose from about 10-20 layout options. Then, upload that picture to your Facebook pge or what not.
3) Comic Touch Lite: Fun little free version of an app that simply ads comic bubbles to the pic. Nothing revolutionary here, but super simple to use and fun at bbq’s and such.
4) Camera Plus: I like playing with this, and I think it provides slightly better photos. Not 100% sold though. (No example)
5) 100 Cameras in One: Basically it’s Hipstamiatic with a different style interface. Take pics, run them through a filter, see the result.
Things I’m playing with and haven’t decided upon yet. (ie, saving them for a future blog post.)
PicPlz, SlowShutter, ToonPaint, MillColour, Phototreats, Retro Camera, Labelbox, LiveFX
I’ve already written about publishing tools like Zapd and Color, so I left them out of this post.
Let me know if you have any photo editing tools that you are using every day.
