1. 100 Cameras in 1 – Created by Trey Ratcliffe AKA Stuck in Customs this app has, you guessed it, 100 different effects and makes heavy use of textures. Some the textures are way overdone but can work for the right image. One of my favorite things to do is stack multiple effects onto an image. To do this you choose the first effect, then click on the add effect button and that will allow you to choose another effect. Do this as often as you like.
2. Instagr.am – Well you want to share all that iPhoneography goodness right? Instagr.am makes it easy peasy lemon squeezy! In addition to easy sharing with all the popular sites like FaceBook, Twitter and Tumblr (and many others) it also adds a decent set of toy camera effects to give your image a nice final touch.
3. Lo-Mob – A classic if such a thing can be said for a year old piece of software. Just about every image I produce takes at least a pass through Lo-Mob even if I don’t keep the image out of it. I love the frames available even if the processing can overcook an image.
4. ClearCam – This software is indispensable when shooting in low light or extra shaky conditions. It takes three images then only keeps the clearest of the three. I use it a ton when shooting macros or out the window of a moving vehicle.
5. Plastic Bullet – I fell in love with this when it was first released and still use it a lot to this day. I will admit though that it does feel like a bit of a one trick pony at times. Still a must have piece of image processing software.
6. Hipstamatic – This is a fun program that emulates an old 110 camera. It makes some great images however you are forced to use it to take pictures, it will not process already taken images. Some people feel this is a drawback while other revel in this constraint.
7. ShakeIT Photo – Aims to create a polaroid look and feel to images but it does it in a pretty fun way, you have to actually shake your phone to get it to process. Image manipulation and exercise? Sold!
8. The Photographer’s Ephemeris – Not something that takes or processes images but software that helps you be at the right place at the right time. A must have piece of software that tells you the direction of sunrise rise and sunset on any given day for any given location. Want to shoot the sunset July 4th on Davenport Beach? This app will show you exactly where you need to be standing and when you need to be standing there.
9. Pro HDR – Yes IOS 4 now has HDR built-in but I find this app produces much better results. It seems to have richer colors and slightly less ghosting.
10. PhotoJojo iPhone Lenses – Fantastic set of lenses for your iPhone. I especially love the macro lens but the wide angle fish eye can make some great images as well.
