App Review: Cropulator by Digital Film Tools

p 480 320 5fd5b58a 5ce1 46f3 b589 e1fabe55bb2a 100x150 App Review: Cropulator by Digital Film ToolsI originally downloaded Cropulator (by Digital Film Tools) a few weeks ago, and after being very disappointed with the app, I decided it wasn’t worth my time for a review. However, with a recent update that hit the App Store last week, I decided I would give it another try.  This time I was pretty pleased with it.

Cropulator is a pretty straight forward app that provides two basic functions: image cropping and image rotation/straightening. Upon loading the app, you are prompted to select an image from the device’s photo store.  When the photo is loaded, you are automatically placed into cropping mode.  Cropping is easily accomplished by dragging the corners of the crop space to where you want them.  Then, touch save. Rotating the image works in a number of ways.  First, you can touch one of the two rotate 90 degree buttons which turns the image in the direction you chose. The second way to rotate a picture allows you to define a line that you want to be used as the horizontal or vertical horizon by swiping your finger across the picture in line with the horizon.  Using this function, you can take a crooked picture and draw a line across it horizontally.  The app will rotate the picture so that the line that you drew is a flat horizontal line.  There are also straighten buttons that, when touched, nudge the image rotation about 1 degree. These buttons are great for straightening a crooked shot.

I’m glad to see this version of the app overcome some of the deficiencies in the first version, and I’m still hoping that they keep improving on it by adding aspect ratio controls during crop mode.  Cropulator is a great app when it comes to simple crops and image rotation/straightening and is recommended if these are the edit functions you are looking for.

Cropulator is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
