Best iPhone Photo Applications
Photo Apps for the iPhone
There are hundreds of iPhone applications available for photo editing and sharing. Check out Groopic, OldBooth, Juxtaposer, Pano, Photogene, Best Camera App, Comicify, TiltShift, Night Camera and many more iPhone Applications! Apple has also finally released the iPhoto application for the iPhone - on the Macintosh this has been a perennial hit! There are also great utility applications like Wi-Fi PhotoTransfer and Treehouse to help move your photos to other devices and services.
Flurry reports that "Video & Photo is now the fastest growing mobile app category across the major mobile platforms." The time spent on photo and video apps per user is increasing every day.
Combine multiple pictures into fun photomontages
With Juxtaposer you can take one part from one photograph and add that part into a second photo. So you could, for example, put your dog's head on a friend's body (as shown in the photo), remix your pets into a mythical creature, or magically join the cast of your favorite TV show.
Juxtaposer is simple to use. First, take or load in any two pictures - perhaps one of your friend and one of your pet. Then use your finger to erase around your friend's head. Next zoom in and out using two finger gestures. Then, to remove your dog's head you first zoom out and make a rough outline, then you zoom in and erase with pixel-accuracy. Then switch to move mode and use your fingers to move, re-size and rotate your dog's head into place over friend's. Viola - you have a friend-dog or a dog-friend or whatever you want to name it!
Edit the Photographer into the Photo with Groopic
Your four options for taking a group picture:
a) Take a selfie.
b) Show a stranger how to use your camera and hope they don't steal it.
c) Make the pal you like least take it.
d) None of the above, group pictures aren't that nice anyway.
Pick your (extremely awkward) poison. Or pick up Groopic, an iPhone app that will fix your group photo woes forever.
Groopic's secret is technology that merges photos together. To get everyone in a photo, it takes two: one with the full group, then the second with the photographer against the same background. Groopic then combines the two seamlessly.
Groopic In Action
Dan Burkholder has written the best teaching book on the wonderful world of iPhoneography. The book includes hidden hints on how to use the iPhone and then also provides creative uses for iPhone Photo apps. The author gives excellent examples of how he produced his own work. If you are using the iPhone as your primary camera - you should read this book!
Just point your camera and 'paint' on the screen to freeze things into place. Point it elsewhere and add to your creation. Keep it up until you've made something awesome! In the sample photo Spiderman's arms were frozen and added and added to get this great image. The video shows examples with human eye's on a dog. My favorite (which my kids won't let me share) is a morphing of two kids into one! Freezepaint is an easy to use app that is just plain fun. Every photo addict should have FreezePaint or Juxtaposer - if not both!

Anticrop - EXPAND our photo!
An amazing app - literally fill in parts of a photo you missed!
It's easy enough top crop a photograph when you left to much space around the the subject. But what about the other way around - When you shoot too close? Now, it's just as simple, with a new universal iOS called AntiCrop. It does one thing: un-crop your images.
If you've ever taken a hasty photo on your phone and didn't leave enough room on the outside, AntiCrop is the app can uncrop those photos by filling in the edges with just a few swipes. AntiCrop uncrops your photos by extending the picture's background. Similar to tools which remove blemishes from photos by using information from elsewhere in the picture, AntiCrop uses that same technique to uncrop your photo from the edges out, so you can get a bit more of that beautiful sunset in the photo, even if you didn't get it in the original shot.
MAKE YOUR PHOTOS SPEAK, with creative or thoughtful captions and/or customizations to give them your own touch. Don't save or share standard photos anymore. Give them your creative touch, make them funny or just enhance them with frames, borders, effects or one of thousands of themed images, icons and stickers. Get your or or your friends' photos from Facebook, give it your touch and put it back on Facebook.

Led by Instagram, vintage photo effects have surged in popularity. These effects provide a great way to get creative and give snaps some visual flair to your otherwise basic cell phone photos. Just as Instagram uses the square aspect ratio and retro colors, PicFx follows the same path. Picfx isn’t so much a rival to Instagram, as it is an expansion to the Instagram idea. It uses the same square aspect ratio but offers considerably more filters – as of version 5.2, there's well over 100 options. Rather than build it's own sharing system, Picfx simpley piggybacks on Instagram’s.

Best Way to Move Photos From Your iPod to Your Computer
Wi-Fi Photo Transfer
Wi-Fi Photo Transfer is a free app that makes it simple to download photos from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.
There isn't a single setting to alter once you download the app. It works by making the photos folder on your device visible from your computer's web browser so you can download photos straight to your computer. Your computer and device must be on the same Wi-Fi network for this to work - which is common for many homes these days. You can view all your photos in a convenient thumbnail view to select multiple items, or you can download them one by one (in various sizes, too). I have found I save a ton of time versus iTunes synching.
When downloading a .zipped file, there is one unfortunate bug. Every image that you download is given a ".jpg" extension, which is accurate for photos taken with your iPhone's camera. This is only a problem if you have Video files (MOV) and/or screen captures (PNG) - then you have an extra step to rename. But if you, like me, are moving 99% photos - then this is a non issue.
Familiar - Your Screen Tells a Story
Familiar personalizes your screens with your photos and videos. Familiar is an all-in-one picture frame, screensaver, and TV channel personalized just for you.
Hipstamatic - makes your digital photos look analog. It features multiple lenses for different effects and you can even order real prints and have the delivered to you right from the app. With a swipe of the finger, change your lens, flash, or film. Each adds a unique touch to your HipstaPrint, so mix and match to find your favorite combination! Also enjoy easy integration with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and Tumblr support.
PhotoPhrase: add amazing typography and text on photos
Photophrase blends beautiful typography with pictures to create unique images you can share. You can use Photophrase for photo captioning, photo sharing, and just plain photo fun. The Photophrase app supports way more than just text with features like proportional word sizing, colored fonts, multiple word creation, visual effects (reflection, opacity, and rotation), and rotational gestures.

CineCrop - Cinematic Photos
Those of you who are keen on the technical aspects of film making must already know that directors use anamorphic lenses to shoot their scenes. These lenses are what create the widescreen look that we all associate with modern cinema, and truly vivid imagery is only possible when these are used.
Well, CineCrop is a new iPhone app that lets you pick any photo that you have taken and crop it to Anamorphic, effectively making it resemble a scene from out of a movie. In actuality, if you buy the application (which is available at the App Store) you can proceed to crop your images to up to six different cinematic aspect ratios, including 35mm Film Widescreen and 16mm Film

Night Camera - Get sharp photos at night
iPhone Photo App
Night Camera helps you to take sharp photos at night or other low light conditions, by using the built-in accelerometer to trigger the shutter when it detects the camera being stable.
iPhone camera, like other cell phones, has some problems. While washed-out color and low contrast can be fixed by Photoshop, iPhoto, or our Photo Lab app, no software can fix blurs caused by shaky hands. That's especially a problem for night photos.
Night Camera can not be simpler. Tap the shutter button, it will start checking the accelerometer. Be calm, hold still, it takes the photo when the accelerometer detects the camera is steady. You get to review the photo before saving.
