The Best App for Editing Photos on the iPad

There is a journey every photographer walks through.

The first step involves realizing you want to take better photos than what your iPhone can provide. This leads to intense research on the latest camera technologies and the latest photo editing apps. Then, after acquiring the lustworthy gear, after working with the camera for a few years, and after working through every photo editing app available, the pure craft of photography takes over.

In essence, the end game of the photography experience is just the craft itself. Not kit, not apps, not locations — just the craft.

Fortunately, there are apps for every step along that journey. No matter where you find yourself in your budding photography hobby — or brimming photography career — there’s an app for you that will meet and exceed your needs.
