    Quick question...
    Anyone know of any iPhone/iPad photo-editing apps which allow you to clone / airbrush / touch up small isolated blemishes, etc?
    All the photo-editing apps I've seen are more geared towards effects and adjustments to the picture as a whole...

    :rolleyes:
    Firstly, did you read my post, and secondly, have you even tried the app you suggested?
    Adobe Photoshop Express, as it's known, the app that runs on iOS, does NOT include the ability to touch up small isolated blemishes.
    Its features are limited to, as I said in my original post, applying effects and adjustments to pictures in their entirety.

    I just found one recently, it's called Filterstorm - they have videos on YouTube.

    It's pretty much a full editing suite geared towards the iPad, however it's universal for the iPhone as well. I've look at practically every photo and video app in the store and your options are down to this and Photogene for true editing, although Filterstorm is more robust.

    Also the Photoshop app is horrible, these days I use it only for it's rotate function and that's it.

    For Very precise touch ups you might have to go with something like Brushes, but I'm not sure if you can import photos.

    Spectacular answer. Thank you very much. :)
    I'll check those apps out.
    And yes, like you, I only ever use Photoshop Express for rotating images! ;)

    I haven't tried Brushes, but I do have SketchBook, which is a very similar painting app, and whilst you can import photos into it, it doesn't include any cloning / sampling brush for blemish removal. All I could do is to "paint" over blemishes with a sampled colour, but that would look very fake.

    Instead of making another thread I thought I would add to this since they go hand in hand.

    What is the best camera app. Are there any that allow you to make any adjustments while taking the photo? color balance, contrast, anything? I really just want a quality replacement for Apples camera app.


    I did pick up filterstorm and the few minutes I mess with it, it does look to be pretty powerful for a photoapp in my pocket. The other one I picked up not to long ago was Photostudio, which is basically a library of filters.

    My go to post edit app ATM is Pictureshow. Besides all the lame stock filter options it has a very easy to use color, contrast, brightness/exposure set of touch dials that make touching your photos up quick and easy. It also has a clean UI, Hi-Rez save to library, and surprisingly only 99 cents.

    I appreciate the response, but I think you missed the point. I'm not looking for another photo editing app, I have plenty, I want a camera app that I can make adjustments to prior to taking the photo. it would be nice if I did take a picture in low light I could adjust it camera first so my photo doesnt come out orange. I have dug around and can't seem to find one, but searching the app stop is nearly impossible. It's also possible that it doesnt exist due to not being able to access those kind of settings in the API for the camera.

    I didn't miss the point there isn't anything available that does that - so I gave you a post edit alternative, sorry if I didn't clarify that. The only prior adjustment you can make at the moment is whether you prefer HDR or not - or what I do is tap the screen to get a slight change in white balance and contrast before snapping.
