My favourite iPhone photography apps

Since the beginning of the iPhone phenomena, fotography apps has been part of it. Although I joined the iCraze quite lately, it didn’t take ling before I started trying out some of these apps partly thanks to internet marketing extraordinaire, Ed Dale and also photography enthusiast.

Hipstamatic - One of the first photography apps to be released and still one of the coolest. An app that would probably qualify for the “app hall of fame” if there was such a thing. In a nutshell Hipstamatic turns your iPhone into a vintage camera. You can take photo’s reminicent of your childhood beach holidays or the good ol’ flower power days without having to go shop around for an old camera. You can change lenses, films and even the flash, with packages that can be purchased from the itunes store

PS Express - It will almost seem wrong not for photoshop to release an app and they’ve done a pretty good job with PS Express. With the free version you get tools such as crop, saturation, sketch and more. You can also purchase extras such as borders and share your work via facebook and twitpic.

Camera Awesome - the most comprehensive app of the lot. In camera mode you can select the composition and also enable “automatic post proccesing” which is basicly a special effect that will auotomaticily be applied to the photo afterwards. Photos can also be uploaded from your library and you have stacks of options available to apply from filters to frames and lots more. Once again extras can be purchased.

Coloursplash - Next time your wedding photographer wants to charge you a fortune for a B&W photo with only the bouquet of roses left bright red, tell them not to worry, you’ll coloursplash it yourself. I guess you have a good idea now what coloursplash is about. Yes, it allows you to upload a photo turn it black and white and then with your finger “colour in” the bits you want in colour. You can also take a colour picture and turn parts of it into grayscale.

With apps like these and the abilities of the cameraphones getting better by the day you can see why compact camera manufacturers are getting worried. So what is your favourite photography app and what filter, film or special effect do you like to use?

About
Bio

I have always had an interest in all the awesome stuff that surrounds us and with all the social media of today sharing this with other people became a lot more fun and easier.

I am a bit of a video game addict and must confess to have "lost" a couple of years on world of Warcraft. But my new love is the, world conquering, Call of Duty franchise. I can spend hours on my ps 3 in multiplayer. Thanks to this love for games I have started my own gamer shirt range and is available online at Newbnutta Gamer Shirts. I love t shirts in general and have also started a site called PODTSHIRTDESIGNS and there you will find a collection of funny t shirts, music t shirts and more from various designers.

Other interests include photography and I particularly enjoy the iPhone photography apps such as instagram and hipstamatic.
I also love cool furniture particularly large bean bags. Another guilty pleasure of mine is gadgets and seem to spend waaaaay to much money buying stuff I hardly use.

Once it's up and running you can check out GeorgeCinna.com for links to my latest works and to check out what I'm up to. I'm looking forward to sharing all the cool stuff the world around us have to offer. Subscribe via RSS.
