I was really excited to get a tablet because I was finally able to show off my photography portfolio to clients in a sophisticated manner — no clunky laptops or slow-to-load websites and galleries to worry about.

Having a smartphone has renewed my interest in improving my photos through various apps on the Play Store. It doesn’t matter that my phone’s camera doesn’t have the highest specs; the apps were good enough to hide that fact.

I’ve also tried just about every photography app that catches my attention, but end up removing most of them since they don’t seem to add anything that isn’t already provided by other apps. For a photo editing app to stand out, it should have one notable feature that others lack – and be absolutely excellent in delivering it.

AfterFocus is one of the new photography apps that does just that. In this article, you’ll learn about this app’s interesting features and how it stands out from the rest.

This article was originally posted in November 2011. This week, Instagram was finally released on Android; some people love it, but others are unimpressed. We’ll have a full review for you soon, but in the meantime, if you were underwhelmed, you might like to check out the alternatives…

Photo-sharing is a booming market on mobile platforms, with all manner of services popping up almost on a weekly basis. Many such apps, especially on Android, are perhaps the ripples from the splash created by the iPhone photo-sharing titan Instagram. The good news is that Instagram plan an Android release in the future. However, until we see what they have to offer us Android users, there is still a huge interest in sharing pictures effectively.

This round-up aims to present an overview of arguably the best photo-sharing platforms available on Android. Now, this includes apps that focus most heavily on pictures, rather than the far larger social networks such as Google+, Facebook and Twitter which serve a wider purpose. These apps are more dedicated to sharing pictures, and make it as easy as possible to do so from your mobile phone. This round-up also doesn’t include purely photo-editing apps; apps like Pixlr-o-matic and BeFunky are very cool, but there is less focus on sharing and do not provide the same kind of platform to share pictures on.

Here you’ll see some big names, some new names, and some names you might not have heard of… until now. Read on for some truly excellent photo-sharing apps you’ll want to check out! (more…)

In this digital age, people rely more on their smart phones to take pictures than a regular camera. Part of the smart phone’s appeal is being able to capture and share moments in pictures right away with a touch of a button. It’s probably why there are quite a number of photo sharing apps in the Market.

But what about editing? Surely not all photos taken with a smart phone comes out perfectly. In fact, far from it. A mid-range digital camera is more capable of taking excellent shots compared to a phone, no matter how impressive its hardware is.

A while back, my fellow writer Paul Wilks wrote about photo sharing apps for Android. This roundup, however, will focus more on photo editing. Here are my top 10 picks:

Android’s built-in camera application is basic, but can get the job done when you need to quickly snap a moment. It doesn’t offer much beyond the simple snap-and-save routine, leaving the field wide open for other apps to enter the arena with boatloads of features, adding shooting modes, features and post-processing effects to give your shots that extra edge. Here’s a look at some of the best free Android apps to help you take better photos.

We will look at the four most common imaging tasks on the phone – capturing photos, viewing them, editing them and then sharing them with the world. Although a number of the apps do all of these on their own, more often than not they are better for one purpose than the others. All these apps are free or offer a free, ad-supported version. Some do have Pro versions that either take away the ads or offer more in terms of features.
