photogene iphone app

The App Store's shelves are well stocked with photography and image-editing apps but few are as capable as Omer Shoor's Photogene. You won't confuse this app for the iPhone and iPod touch with Adobe Photoshop, but it's a lot more fun.

Photogene enables you to manipulate an image in a variety of ways: You can sharpen, crop, correct color and temperature, rotate, flip and straighten tilted images. It also has several special effects: frames, word bubbles, sepia and heat map (like a thermal image) color.

Last, Photogene lets you view an image in portrait and landscape modes, move the image around and zoom in and out.

A menu of icons on the left takes you into most features. Options for some features, such as changing the font and color of word bubbles, appear in a menu at the bottom of the screen.

Photogene is a compact, yet slick, app with an amazing amount of functionality. It's useful for basic image editing on the fly and it's entertaining. I can easily see how Photogene would appeal to someone who often emails pictures to friends and who is witty or has a droll sense of humor.

There's a lot of bang for the buck in this phtoto app.

    Yeah, few things say how witty your personality is more clearly than using a text balloon on an image. Still, while I would never use any of those features, there is something to be said about addressing the iPhones need for an image editor. I mean, even my old cell phone has a rudimentary image editor. Why did the iPhone come without?
