If one of the reasons you’re looking to purchase a new iPhone 5 is in order to take more photographs then you’ll be pleased to hear there are a wide range of apps available that could help you to make them look at their best. In can be a challenge to know where to start, so here are a few of our favorites.
Offering a number of stunning filters, Instagram is a great way to make subtle edits to photos that can really set them off. You can upload your images to share with friends, as well as view, comment and like those taken by others on your timeline. It also makes use of hashtags, so if you want to see a certain place or person then simply search for them. It’s also easy to share your snaps to Facebook and Twitter. Originally only available to those who had opted to buy an iPhone it’s now open to other platforms, which means more users and more great photos.
If it’s a unique effect you’re seeking then why not give ColorSplash a whirl? It allows you to edit your images in a number of ways, such as by changing saturation, brightness and contrast but the most impressive aspect is touching one part of the image will make it appear in colour while the rest remains in black and white.
If you’re seeking a more retro-style look then this app could be the right choice. It allows you to choose between hundreds of different effects so you’ll never be short of options. Sharing with a wider audience is also easy and if you really like a photo then you can buy it and get it delivered to your door through the app.
If clarity is key in your photography (and let’s face it why wouldn’t it be?) then this is a must have. It also boasts a 6x zoom that works particularly well and allows a front camera flash, perfect if you’re a fan of taking selfies. It can even help you to get your angle right as there’s a horizon level included.
One great way to bring all your images to one place is by using Cooliris. Browsing is easy as it makes use of a 3D wall that can be swiped through quickly and easily. It also brings together photos from your friends on Flickr, Twitter, Facebook and other sources so you need never miss a trick again.
