I have been a huge admirer of Aviary for a long time now. I don’t use their web apps often, but I’m in awe at them for showing the world what web apps are capable of.

Of course, Photoshop is a one stop shop for doing just about anything with images, but the learning curve and the price are both quite steep.

There are a whole host of image editing applications open to iPad owners. These range from the rudimentary to some comparatively advanced and surprisingly capable apps which can offer much of the basic functionality of their larger desktop siblings. Subsplash’s Luminance definitely falls into the latter category, and successfully provides iPad users with an intuitive platform from which one can edit images, with easy cropping and rotation, in addition to filters and more.

However, strong though it appears on paper, Luminance certainly has some stiff competition in the iOS App Store in the shape of great apps like Snapseed and Adobe Photoshop Express. So, how does Luminance stack up against these competitors? Read on to find out more.


With the added horsepower of the iPad 2, developers have been able to offer more powerful applications that can meet the needs of professionals. In the crowded image editing field, Filterstorm Pro stands apart as one of the most impressive and fully-featured mobile editing solutions for the discerning photographer.

With its ability to edit high resolution JPEG and RAW images, batch process large numbers of files, and connect to an FTP server for final delivery, we examine whether or not Filterstorm Pro may be able to replace a laptop-based workflow in a demanding professional photography environment.
