iPhone camera tips Day 5 – Must have camera App’s

In this final post I’ll recommend some great smart phone App’s that will help you take your images to the next level.

Recommended APPs:

If I had to chose ONE app that I use the most for my iPhone photos it would be:


You can shoot your images directly in this App, or process them later.  The “lab” features are stellar.


Other Recommended App’s: 


photoshopPhotoshop for iPhone

Lot’s of great filters, and image processing features.



A photo-sharing community that also lets your print.



Awesome app for doing photo collages for posting your images on-line.



We all know what instagram is.  A great way to share you photos. Link your Facebook and Twitter accounts if you want. Easy to share your images.



Share you inspiration and get inspiration from others.



Print your photos:


LifePics lets you order prints from several local stores on their network – Photofinisher Network. According to their website there are over 12,000 stores located all over the world. he app uses your GPS to find local stores near you that you can order photos from. You can also use this app easily while traveling just use the “Get Location” option to find stores on the go. The prices range based on which retailer you pick inside the app so it might be worth viewing options. 4×6 at Office Depot run $0.15 each.


Shutterfly is a popular photo sharing site that provides a large number of personalized photo gifts- calendars, photo books, coffee mugs, calendars and more. I am assuming because of the diversity of their photo offers that is why Shutterfly opted not to add the Cart/Order process directly in the app. But you can upload your iPhone photos into your shared Shutterfly albums from the phone or using the camera directly.


Snapfish is similiar to Shutterfly in that you can order customized gifts from your photos. The app allows you to add photos to your albums and download existing photos from your online album onto your phone. The multiple upload feature worked pretty quickly. Perhaps a photo book of your instagram photos might make a fun coffee table book! *in app photo ordering is not available

 cvsCVS Photo

there is a CVS less than a mile from my house. So CVS photo center is my go-to photo printing source. Until I discovered this app I saved photos from my iPhone to my computer then ordered prints on CVS website for pick-up at their 1 hour printing station. With the app I can now upload photos (albeit 1 at a time) to my CVSphotos.com account. It does appear I have to actually “order” from a computer but getting the photos in the album saves a lot of time.


This app has versatility. Photos: you have the option of uploading photos (multiple) from your camera roll or using the camera – you can also upload to Facebook & Walgreens inside this app. After uploading your photos easily order prints with a big “Print & Share” bottom.
