Everyone with a cell phone is using it to take pictures. And some of the smart phones, most notably the iPhone, have better cameras built into them than many point-and-shoot cameras. What’s better about them? Very good resolution means crisper edges, large file sizes mean you can enlarge them and remain sharp, a better lens which is one of the most important parts of any camera (many people think it’s all about megapixels but it’s the lens that defines how good a camera is). Here’s a few apps that I found to be very helpful. Photoshop Express is a great free app that lets you do the most important things needed when toning a photo including cropping, exposure, and sharpening. Plus it has lots of cool filters and borders to jazz up images for that ‘Photoshop’ look. The other app I like is Camera+. The one feature I like about this app is the image stabilizer. One of the most difficult things I find with using a cell phone camera is keeping the thing steady when shooting . Share your ideas and let me know your favorite photo apps and why. Here’s a photo that I shot using just about every option available. It’s overkill but it sure is fun.
Here's a vacation photo I shot in Florida using almost every option available in Photoshop Express.
