Isn’t it convenient that you can take pictures from your iPhone? Now, you’ll never miss the chance to capture every remarkable moment in your life. What’s more amazing is that you can also edit your photos and tweak them into fun, quirky or more memorable images. Through the iPhone’s apps for photo effects, you can have cool photos in just snap.
In the age of “iPhoneography,” hundreds of photo effects and editing apps have emerged in the market, which only increased the dilemma of iPhone enthusiasts. To limit your choices, here are five of the most popular iPhone photography apps based on their specialized functions:
For iPhone and Android users alike, it is impossible that Instagram will be unheard of. The fact that it’s free even widened its user base all over the globe. Instagram offers an attractive user-friendly interface, wherein you can choose a variety of default photo filters to convert them into cooler images.
Instagram has garnered worldwide popularity partly due to its active participation in social media. This app allows you to shoot, edit, or upload photos. As of April 2012, Instagram has 40,026,379 users.
Camera+ is an iPhone app worth your every penny. It addresses the quality of your photos through anti-shake functions, clarity features, gyroscopes, split exposures, and focus points. You can also add filters depending on your choice.
For more technical editing, Touch Retouch is recommended. It is the only popular iPhone app that enables deletion of unwanted objects or images present on your photo. Touch Retouch can cover the unwanted object as if it were never there.
If you think your iPhone cannot do wide-angle photography, Pano answers that for you. You can take multiple shots of a specific scenery, and Pano will stitch them together to create one whole panoramic shot.
The practice of going into a tiny booth—pressing your bodies and faces against each other, while mustering up a smile or a quirky pose—has already been part of tradition. Now, that tradition is in your smart phone. This time, you don’t have to go into a booth anymore, but you can still take multiple photos and compile them into one photobooth strip.
Pocketbooth also offers filter effects, but its specialty is the photobooth strip itself. You can print it or upload it on your social networking accounts.
