In today’s digital world, editing has become a big part of photography. I focused on a new editing app this week. It is called PhotoToaster. You will find it in the AppStore.
The PhotoToaster app requires IOS 8.0 or later. It is compatible with i-Pone, i-Pad, and i-Pod touch. There is a one-time cost of $2.99; however, although it is not a free app, I’ve already found it to be incredibly useful in creating stunning edited shots.
The photo below was taken at mid-day. The editing has created a feeling of warmth, as if it had been taken at sunset.
This is the original. This is after editing.
Of course, I will continue looking at many of the other features in this editing app, but so far I think it will be well worth the $2.99 I paid.
Upon opening the app you find 4 links to places you can access the photo you wish to edit: Recent, Photo Library, Camera, and Clipboard.
Below that, you see a pink box that will take you to the Community / Tutorials area. This area includes all of the tutorials needed to use in editing. The tutorials are not in video form, so it is easy to read, try it out, then return to read it again, if needed.
The editing features include:
There are several other fantastic editing features that I can’t wait to try!
The Community area also includes a variety of “challenges” for the photographer. They list a Fall Challenge, Sunset Challenge, Ice Challenge, Reflections Challenge and many others. Each challenge specifies what to focus on, for example, the Ice Challenge focuses on Highlights and Shadows. These will prove to be very beneficial in improving our i-Phone photos and editing abilities, then sharing them with the PhotoToaster community.
This is an incredible app for the photographer who enjoys editing their photos to add interest and beauty.
