Ok if you have an iphone and you take pictures then you are well aware that there are tons of photo editing apps out there. This month I am going to focus on the photo editing apps that are available to you. Last week I did a tutorial on the camera+ app and how wonderful that app is. This week is about the photoshop express app that is available on the iphone and on the android based phones. My friend geezee will be providing a review on the android based version and you can find that review here!
Lets get back to the review, all in all for a free app the app is wonderful. You can purchase in app packs for $2.99 and for $4.99 but I haven’t felt the need to do so as of yet. The in app packs, give you more effect choices to use and I personally find that I like to keep things simple and I don’t take a ton of time editing a photo! I do this because I don’t have a ton of time to sit and edit my photos. So that’s my two cents on the app packs that are available to you.
The video will show you all the settings in more detail but for the most part the settings page let’s you set up your sharing settings. You don’t have that many options to share directly from the app. You can only share to Facebook, Tumblr, and Adobe. You can save the photo to your camera roll though which will then you give the ability to share your photo to any social media outlet that you would like to share it with.
Photoshop has also provided a little welcome screen that will tell you the many things that you can do with the app before you try editing a photo. This is called the getting started area of the app 🙂
When editing a photo in the photoshop app you can either upload a photo from one of the albums on your phone or you can take a picture within the app and then proceed to edit the app.
Once you pick a photo to edit you click on a little pencil which will then bring up all the editing options that the app has available. There are quite a few editing options that you can choose from.
You can use the autoenhance feature, the crop feature, the exposure feature, the effects feature such as black and white options and colorize options and last but not least their special effects feature. In the special effects feature you can choose to add special effects to your photo or a border to your photo or both. The special effects feature is also where you will find the red eye fix feature. Once you are done editing your photo all you have to do is click on the check mark and the photo will be automatically saved to your camera roll for you to use.
Here are two different photos that I captured while in the car. Apparently I am fascinated with the sky and find the need to take photos of the sky on a constant basis!
As you can see from the photos you can create different looking photos from your original photo or you can just enhance your original photo.
Check out the video and see what else you can do with the photoshop express app and if you sign up over there on the right I will send you a tutorial that goes along with the video!
