Photogene For iPad App Performance

The Photogene app features many presets which allow you to add an effect to your image, examples of which are below. To further edit your photo you can crop, rotate, straighten, add adjustments, add further retouches, add text and enhance, all from the options along the bottom of the screen. If you make a mistake there are undo, redo and original buttons.

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.
