    If you own an iPad, you already know that the tablet device is a great vehicle for viewing photos. What if you want to take things a step further and edit your photos? Thanks the the Photogene app, editing your photos on the iPad is both easy and fun.


    Photogene was originally released for the iPhone. While it worked well on Apple's mobile phone platform, it seems as if the app really took off with the release of its iPad version. Simply put, the iPad offers a larger display and impressive processing that are ideal for photo editing on the go. So, if you have an iPhone and tried Photogene before, get ready for an even better experience with its iPad edition.

    Even if you are an amateur when it comes to photography or using technology, Photogene is easy to use. You don't have to be a technical wizard because the app's layout is simple and user-friendly. Since your photos are your main focus, Photogene's clean layout is a definite plus. You won't have a lot of on-screen clutter. Instead, the main editing options reside at the bottom of the screen. If you select an option, you will see its adjustment settings on the side of the screen. Photogene's developers definitely deserve a pat on the back for the simple design.

    Many people enjoy the iPad's touch-screen capabilities, and those come into play in a big way when using Photogene. Instead of using a mouse on a regular computer, Photogene teams up with the iPad to give you plenty of power over your photos via touch gestures. For instance, you can crop photos using your fingers in a snap. Want to resize a photo? Simply perform pinch or zoom gestures to make your photos smaller or larger. Using the touch gestures gives you a much more intuitive way to edit your photos, which is something that a program on a regular computer cannot offer.

    If you demand a lot of editing options when it comes to your photos, Photogene has you covered. There are a ton of special effects that you can add to your photos, and the same holds true for color adjustments. Want to add a personal touch with some text? There are plenty of text boxes and bubbles to choose from. You can sharpen photos, add in a variety of frames, and apply filters  to completely transform photos into a style of your own. 

    One of the more powerful features of Photogene is its ability to save macros. You can create a custom macro that can be saved and applied in the future to save time when editing photos. Since photo editing is filled with trial and error, the app comes with unlimited undo and redo options. When you are all finished, you can use the app to share your finished work with others through Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, FTP, or email.

    At $2.99, Photogene is a bargain for anyone who is really serious about editing photos. The app takes photo editing to a whole new level. Best of all, it is very easy to use.
