You’ve heard the saying “There’s an app for that” — and there is! We’re bringing you fun and useful apps for your iPhone every week. Today, we’re sharing five photography apps.
We all know about Instagram, but there are many other photography apps available, too. These apps will help enhance your iPhone photographs with numerous filters, cool effects and other fun features.

One of the top-rated photo apps for iPhone and iPad, Photo Toaster has an amazing number of features, including 60 one-click effects to improve or alter your photos, 80 one-click settings for everything from lighting to borders and 24 live slider controls.

There are a lot of apps out there that can turn your photos into animated GIFs, and Flixel is one of our favorites. Flixel animates your photos by taking quick pictures in succession. But unlike some of the other GIF apps, with Flixel, you can animate just one portion of your image — leaving the rest of it static. The latest version of Flixel has eliminated the annoying bugs of previous versions.
