App Review: Photogene by Omer Shoor
As a photography and photo buff, I am always looking for good, quality, mobile photo apps. I downloaded a few photography apps over the past several months and had given up on finding one that did the few things that I need to do on my phone in a mobile environment (ie. cropping, rotation and very minor corrections). Enter Photogene.
I first saw Photogene when it hit the top 100 apps. After I looked at it online and on iTunes, I decided to give it a go. I went ahead and purchased it and I was not disappointed. For the mobile photography enthusiast this app pretty much does everything you would need or even want to do on your iPhone. The app is very intuitive and offers great control over your images for editing. Photo edit functions include: crop (fixed aspect or not); rotation (incremental or 90 degrees); mirror image (vertical or horizontal); sharpness, pencil and other special effects; color adjustment including levels, exposure, etc; and the ability to add a frame, conversation bubble or other symbol. Another nice feature of Photogene is its unlimited undo and redo function so you can always get back to where you started. When you’re done editing a picture, clicking the check box saves the image as a new image, leaving the original untouched.
Photogene by Omer Shoor is a great mobile photo editor and one that I’ve been looking for for a long time. It’s $2.99 price is well worth it.
Photogene is $2.99 in the iTunes App Store.
