If you are feeling disillusioned with Apple’s iPhoto for iOS app and want a little more control over your image editing options, there is another (said in the voice of Yoda).
Photoristic HD is a photo-editing app that lets you use professional quality tools on your iPad. Fix lighting flaws, brighten flat photos, and turn a near-perfect shot into the perfect picture with just a few taps…
This app gives you precise control over coloring and edition options by offering a set of professional standard image adjustment features including white balance, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, vibrancy, and saturation. You can apply each editing tool to eight colors individually to give your photos a very unique look.
Pick a color and drag your finger across the screen to make the applied changes. You will see the color adjustment in real time as you move your finger around.
Split Tone allows you to add color to the lighter and darker regions of your photo using two different colors. Add greens to your tree and yellows to your clouds for a picture that is more realistic than reality could ever be.
In black and white mode, you can turn any image into a piece of art. You’ll even be able to adjust the different tones individually to bring out the contrast of your black and white images.
There are more than 30 fully customizable presets to make one-step photo editing a snap. You can also create your own presets and save them for future use.
Thanks to a unique algorithm, all of the changes happen in real time, allowing you to see exactly what your adjustments look like without taking a long time to update between edits.
You can share your newly edited images to Facebook and Twitter or send them through email. You can also save images to your iPad’s Photo Library or print them directly from the app using AirPrint.
The app offers intuitive gesture-based controls and a simple interface to make finding tools easy for photographer hobbyists and professionals alike. If you ever have trouble finding what you need, call up the help screen for a detailed how-to guide.
This app also supports 20mp resolution for high quality exporting of photos. You can either upload images from your Photo Library, or take pictures directly from inside the app.
Photoristic HD is available for the iPad for $4.99. Download it in the App Store today.
