There are now a great number of photo editing apps available for the iPad, a few of which we looked at in our roundup of 7 Awesome iPad Photography Apps. There is a clear distinction forming between apps that give you the functionality to completely control the processing of a photo, and those that aim to do some of the legwork for you – often by including numerous filters and preset effects. Filterstorm and PhotoForge2 would be good examples of the former, while Snapseed and Photogene are great examples of the latter.

Today we’re going to look at an app that is a powerful mix of both types of photography apps. FX Photo Studio HD brings the enjoyment and sheer creativity of filters together with superior processing and ultimate control, read on to see just how good FX Photo Studio is…

It’s always good news when an app category already populated by quality welcomes a new contender. PhotoToaster is a photo editing and post-processing app that is designed to make the experience of playing with your photos as enjoyable as it should be.

It’s from East Coast Pixels, the people behind ColorBlast!, a simple processing app that focusses on doing one thing well. PhotoToaster has got a huge number of positive reviews in the App Store, especially for a relatively new app, we’re going to find out whether it lives up to the hype!

Could PhotoToaster be your new favourite photo processing app?


The very form of the iPad seems to suggest it be used as a platform for image enhancement and editing, so it’s little wonder that there has been an explosion of photography-focused apps designed exclusively for Apple’s tablet.

Nik Software bring a pedigree to the table as the company best known for their popular Photoshop plugins such as Color Efex Pro, Viveza and Sharpener Pro aim to produce the ideal balance between ease of use, flexibility, and versatility with Snapseed.

Read on after the break to find out if they’ve succeeded!


Photoshop doesn’t need an introduction.

Over the past few decades, it has become synonymous with photo editing to such an extent that ‘photoshopping’ has entered the collective lexicon. While being a great asset to professionals, it’s a bit costly for hobbyists who plan to edit their images from their desktops.

Now that a huge amount of image capturing is done by smartphones (or a device thats runs on a smartphone OS platform), it makes perfect sense to develop image editing apps for that very purpose. Today let’s take Adobe Photoshop Express for a spin.
