One of the most pleasing aspects is that you can save full sized images up to 8 megapixels (21 on iPad 2). For the review we have set a maximum size of 1000 pixels, ideal for uploading to the ePHOTOzine Photography Gallery. The export button is on the top bar and when in the image library area you can select multiple images to upload in one go.

To create a collage, you simply select the photos (maximum of 6) you wish to include and the app puts them together itself. You can then edit it as you choose. There are three templates available, but you can purchase an extra 61 for just £1.49. You can also edit the outline and change the ratio as well as add text buttons. Collages have a maximum overall size of 2048px and can be exported in exactly the same way as individual images.

The Photogene for iPad app is fun to use, gives great results and is excellent value for money.
