Review: iPhoto

apps Updated: Apr 09, 2012 14:47 IST

The first thing that catches your attention in most iPad apps is just how much these tiny sized apps can do when compared to full blown softwares that we are used to for our laptops and PC's. It amazed me in Pages and Keynote and yet again in iPhoto.

Being a Windows PC user, really didn't know what to expect from the iPhoto. Well, as it turns out quite a lot.

Layout and Image Editing

The opening layout is pretty clean as you would expect with folders laid neatly out. It makes a nice pretty picture, like an album rack. There are options of looking at pictures and events.


Image editing is simpler that it looks and like most apple apps gets easier as you use them. The crop, favourite and flag functions are upfront and pretty much do the job. The magic begins once you start using the editing features. There a 5 brush options and 10 effects and all work very well.

This has to be the coolest feature of the iPhoto.

A folder, on the other hand, only allows you to club pictures together, but the journal feature allows you to use themes, put comments, memories, date, temperature, notes, quotes and all that you would like to associate that photo set with.

The fact that it lets you share over iCloud and iTunes makes it even cooler. Truly, it’s the journal that completes iPhoto as a formidable package.



The iPhoto is a thumbs up and package that gives more than it takes at $4.99. iPhoto in due time will become the only photo editing app favorite of almost every iPad/iPhone user.
