The iPhone has opened a world of possibilities to amateur photographers with the built in high quality camera and the computing power to do amazing post-caputure editing. While iOS 5 may have added some much needed editing tools to the main Photo app, there is still the room in every shutterbug’s home screen for a good editing app for tweaking levels, color, and generally getting the photo ready to share online. East Coast Pixel thinks they have just the tool you are looking for with PhotoToaster Jr.
PhotoToaster will pull photos from your library, camera, clipboard, or even Facebook for you to edit. For the user that wants to make a quick tweak before sending off their photos, there is a large selection of presets from the globe icons in the lower left. Here you will find many high quality filters for your photos. If you are familiar with Instagram then you will have an idea of the kind of filters you will find. Some give you a vintage photo look, while others are light enhancing or have borders.
If you are more of a hands on person, There are separate controls for lighting, effects, vignette, and borders. Each of these have their own presets and an icon that gives you traditional slider bars. There is quite a bit you can do to make improvements you your photos. All of these filters are full image filters as there is no way to mask the filters or select portions of the photo.
Once you are done, the usual saving options are available with the inclusion of Instagram being a surprise. Tumblr, Facebook, etc will prompt you for logins when necessary. I personally like to save my photos to the library where I can distribute them as I please. PhotoToaster Jr. is ad supported but you can also purchase the Senior version from the app store for $.99. This adds more effects and tools for editing your photo as well as lacking ads. Even if you are looking for a no cost option, Phototoaster Jr. is a feature pack photo tool that should do the trick for more basic image editing.
We rate this app 4 out of 5 stars.
