Greetings all from Africa. I thought I'd share these three camera apps that I've come across lately:
Camera+ - I personally feel that the iPhone often fails at the image adjustments required to go from a good shot to a great shot. Camera+ offers more flexibility and isn't complicated, with an interface that is intuitive and offers sensible navigation. A major plus is being able to set it up the way you want it with predetermined settings, such as horizon level, automatic geotagging and a grid on the screen. It's only for iPhone and iPad and usually sells for US$1.99.
Snapseed - Google's photo app is hard to beat, with great effect and adjustment controls such as vignetting, brightness and cropping. Snapseed is able to process images shot on a tablet as well as those imported from a 'proper' camera. Unless you need something bordering on professional, I recommend looking at Snapseed. It's available for iOS and Android...and it's free!
Adobe Photoshop Touch - This tablet-based image-editing software can do everything, and may perhaps be a bit of overkill for the average phone-photographer. It rivals Adobe's PC-based suites for power, but in typical Adobe fashion you'll need a bit of time to learn all of the ins and outs. It's available for iOS and Android, and usually costs US$9.99.
Hey, remember when we had to choose between films with different speeds...and decide on the correct aperture and shutter speed...and wait impatiently for the photos to be processed down at the local shop?!
