PHOTO TOASTER is a handy app for beginners and those who want to edit photos in a snap.
The Beginners Lens Verdict
PHOTO TOASTER can do almost everything – from basic lighting adjustments, color corrections, modifying of sharpness, contrast, and saturation, and addition of borders. If you want to improve the overall look of an image with just a single tap, there are a handful of good presets to get the job done. The results are really quick – you’ll see your edits in a flash, as it were.
But contrary to the developer’s claim that this app is a “fresh approach to mobile editing”, a closer look tells us that it is not really a fresh approach at all. Don’t get us wrong – this app isn’t completely worthless, it is just somewhat disappointing that a new photo-editing app like this does not offer any game-changing options. But heck, maybe the developers are already working on something great for the updates? Ahem.
This app is a good choice for those just starting out in iPhone photography, or who may not already have a ton of photo editing apps in their arsenal. If you’ve got a few bucks to spare then try this out…but if you’re an app addict with tons of photo editing suites, you could probably give this one a miss. There are better choices out there – such as Kings Camera or PhotoForge2 that offer superior editing and unique features.
