There are hundreds of thousands of apps in app store that allow users to carry out almost any task. If you own an iPhone and have caught the photo-bug, or recently caught the photo-bug then I suggest you check out these; six iPhone apps out which photographers would love. These applications allow users to carry out different photography tasks, such as post-processing, panoramic photographs and more.


Photosynth is an application for iPhone users, iPod Touch and iPad users with iOS 4.2 and later. Photosynth allows iOS users to capture multiple photographs and then stich them into one large panorama. The panorama could be of anywhere, such as places, people, events.

Panoramas are great as they allow the user to capture the whole scene in one photograph – just as the human eye would see the place.

Photosynth allows users to take not only the default “left-to-right” and “right-to-left” panoramas but also gives them the option to take up-and-down panoramas allowing them to capture the full scene.

BeFunky Photo Editor

BeFunky Photo Editor is as the name suggests an online photo editing application built for the iOS users, especially the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users with at least iOS 4.0 or later.

The BeFunky Photo Editor has a library of 25 high-quality photo effects that can be applied to the photograph once it has been snapped using your iOS device camera. Not only that, but the BeFunky Photo Editor also has editing tools and photo-frames to give your photo the feeling you want it to have.
